I am doing some research right now into a watercooling system, and once I get that all figured out, I will post some new pics with that installed. (Anyone with some advice or experience is welcome to share!
Welcome to the club! The cable management will do a lot for the look, and water cooling is a nice addition to any case.

BTW how do you like your 460s? I just got a 460 2GB, and I'm very happy with the performance/price. Running mine @ 925 core.

As far as the 2x460s I find that most of the games I play look great at the highest settings. I stepped up to this system from a Pentium D 3.4 with an 8800gtx 768, and it made a HUGE difference on CIV 5... I can turn everything up almost all the way on Dragon Age 2 and it runs great.
I have noticed, however, some really low benchmark scores on Furmark, and I don't understand why that is. However, overall I like them a lot, and find that most games run exceptionally well at very high settings.

Yesterday I also got the temp of the main card up near 98 running furmark, so I got a bit worried there, and that is part of the reason I am looking into the water cooling.

What are the temps on your other card? Max temp on my card is 80. But I can see in SLI the top card would reach a lot higher temps.
post #23294 of 28613
The bottom card is generally 20-25 degrees cooler than the top one. And also, unfortunately, the way my motherboard is designed (with the abliity to do SLI 3 way), if I put a card in the third slot, it covers up the only PCI-E x1 slot (where I have my sound card installed) and so in order to just do 2 way and use my sound card, I have to put the 2 460s right next to each other, so there is not much room between the two, which I am sure causes heat issues.

I am looking into water cooling right now for both the cpu and gpus, but haven't done nearly enough learning to start doing yet.

Looks like you really need some cable management. You can fit about 90% of those behind the motherboard tray. I suggest getting some unisleeve extensions as well for the 8 pin/24 pin/6 pin pcie power. The NZXT extensions are really cheap nowadays. I was also wondering why you didnt go with triple channel ram. You gain about 10-20% memory bandwidth in triple channel over dual channel. Nice rig! Welcome Scout!

Thanks bro, worked hard to jam all that junk in there and make it fairly clean and proper. The next reincarnation of the scout should be fairly simple compared to this. Waiting on some parts to arrive and then i'll post some more pics.

I definitely agree that I need some better cable management, and I will be doing that sometime in the next week or two, once my new power supply arrives. Additionally, I am determining what I might need to set up a water cooling solution, or if I should just install a Corsair H60 system for the cpu.
I completly understand the need for the 8-pin extension so that it can run under, but why would I need extenstions for the 24 pin or 6 pins, when they are alreay so long? Can those NZXT cables plug directly into a modular power suppy, and then allow me to eliminate the original cables? That would be great, as those NZXT cables are exceptionally nice looking. Thanks for the constructive criticism, I do appreciate knowing where improvements can be made.

Make that TWO Vantecs ziptied to my 5770. And before ya'll laugh, they arnt the uber-Vantecs. (Tornadoes?) They're uv orange ones I got from Fry's about 6 or 7 years ago. They've lasted me that long, look pretty cool and must push at least 40 CFM each. Relatively quiet too The only problem I've run into? Had to take out my sound card and go onboard again

Well, you own a 'Scout' and you've posted pic's.. Your in club!!! Just fill out CMSSC log from the front page or take it from my sig. Plus put up our club sig please!!!
I agree with everyone. Clean up those cables for better air-flow as well as
good looks.... Either way 'Scout'; welcome to The 'CMSSC'!!!

the radiators will both have 3 fans set out in push arrangement and the frame will also have 4 fans pulling air into the new box.


As you can see from the image above I have left some space at the front of the box to enable the fitment of the pump/pumps but if the temperature is not as brilliant as I hoped it would be there would still be the option of an additional fan.

I love the Idea darkstar!!! I've been bouncing that Idea around for months. I just don't have the time on my hands to initiate the project. I hope you take this idea forward. I support it with full conviction sir... Nice render's by the way..... I think so..... Good Luck

Sorry for the double post guys!!!
