Welcome to the CMSSC Sgt agentdomo!!!

It looks like you have GPU rads stacked in the 5.25" bays. How are the temps like that? I'm thinking if you have room you may want to put one in the floor, I'm sure you'll get better temps like that. Plus it might help clean things up too, btw it would look like a mess in there with out the wire looms. Pretty good fix for the problem, but I would try to hide more of the fan and CCFL cables.

Well tomorrow I get paid. Tomorrow I order me a new motherboard. I've decided to not use the Asus M5A97 since it doesn't have an onboard graphics. And without knowing if the Gigabyte HD 5770 is functional or not, I will not risk being without running my pc for another two weeks.
So I decided to go woth the ECS A890GXM-A2(2.0). They are basically the same motherboard but I won't get the new BIOs interface but I gain
onboard graphics just incase. I will eventually get better graphics. If I can afford it. I will get the Storm Scout case as well. It will be worth waiting a few more days for it....and my brother is generously donating $70 to me. Which means I can get the case! It will be worth waiting three more days for it to arrive but hell. I can wait! It will arrive Saturday if I order tomorrow before work.

I can't wait...I can finally play Arma II and Tanks! Also will end up getting Skyrim for the PC!

I just demeled a wood square block and painted it black to cover the hard drives and the ugly light blue inverter! Temps are 29C idle on both cards when using three monitors. With one monitor they idle at 27C. Peak temps are around 60C under 100% load. (this is with a 24/7 1260MHz Boost 1300 ~ 6800MHz Memory). The 3770k idles at 30C @ 4.6GHZ 1.325V. My CPU temps used to idle at 27 until I upgraded to 16 gigs of 1866 ripjaws OCed at 2133. I had to increase voltage from 1.25 to 1.325 to keep it stable for some reason.

That is normal with intel CPU's, the more ram you have the less you can OC. Did you try increasing your CPU PLL voltage any?

Thanks, that means a lot. So, enough with the pleasantries, it's stripped and gutted. i didn't take any pics of it as it was out of the box (the the internet for that), but here's all the side panels removed (even the back one that's not really supposed to come off), front panel header, all the fans and fan mounts, power cord, etc... off she goes to the shop tomorrow to be chopped.... *insert evil laugh here*

20120725_195922.jpg

and here are all the side panels, wrapped in a towel and being put back into the box until they are needed.

I was also pondering the idea of an angled one, kinda like this

But didnt know if it would look any good.
If you are into paint work, or maybe even vinyl decals i think the sloped cover would make for an interesting canvas to work with. Or really get into it and do some cutouts in the metal before painting or powdercoating, then mess around with plexiglass and back lighting. Just some ideas

I did but I never pushed it far enough so I just decided to take the easy route and leave it at what it is biggrin.gif.

I'll be doing the whole thing with plexi and spraying the back of it black.. so it wont look too fancy, but i could get a stencil or something to put on it before i spray, then use some LED's to light it biggrin.gif
Cheers for the idea!
