No problems at all. I was afraid that the power connectors wouldn't line up with the optical bays, but it's perfect.

Tried to fit filter/grills to them, would have been really clean looking but the bottom wont clear my psu

Switched to R4's and added a shroud

Thanks gang, I checked in power management, peripheral setup, advanced bios settings. Nothing doing. Same thing with Mindy's board. I think the main reason is probably that Evga doesn't want you shutting off thier LED readout because it is the last thing you'll see if you fry the board.

When Digital Storm set my system up in the Scout and I'd fire it up so hot playing Crysis and the VREG topped out on what it could handle heat wise, everything shut down except that readout it was brightly lit and read 86! How apre po (sp?) that they used that number and listed it in the book as board error or power short circuit.

Just goes to show, if you want something right, do it yourself. They did fix a lot on warranty though, I got a free case, a cheap water cooling upgrade and some nice case lighting and 6 high cfm fans for only $160- over what I paid before. From my figuring it was close to $700- in upgrades. They got a satisfied customer and I got and awesome machine.

I kinda wonder if this isn't on purpose because it's known that UV light causes cataracts. I found this out when my eye doctor said I had to get an expensive set of $140- magnetic sun shades that snap to my glasses because my cataracts are at stage 3. Stage 5 is when the insurance will pay them to install artificial lenses in my eyes.

I guess all them hippy years with the black light posters didn't help huh? Oh, also they don't need to be too bright to cause the glow effect. I have a round dual CCFL with blue 120mm fan. If anyones interested PM me.

If I'm breaking the rules again maybe Mr. Twisted Pair will pop up and chew me out huh?

I don't think so I have the Corsair HX650, the modular one. I poked it through the hole behind the PSU, then straight up then top rear of the mobo and after a bit of straightening it plugged right in. Of course with my mobo it was 2 of the 4 pin processor conncectors.

So I hope you like it.
Man, it reminded me of when I saw "Monsters of Rock" in Germany. We stood through 8 hours of solid Rock in a "no seats" stadium. When the bands took a break at the 4 hour mark the mens room was no waiting but the ladies was around the block. Well, the ladies tapped on the door and sweetly asked if they could use our stalls. No problem we all agreed. I was young, I had no idea a chick could pee standing up!
Anything for Rock!

I agree, I hate rap too. With a few exceptions, #1 being the full cut of "Fresh Prince of Bel Air". Ok, #1......
Really, I'm pretty sure there was at least 1 more.

Power conservation, 1600 shader processors, lots more capacitors and if you haven't noticed the trend is going towards cards that can include HD Audio as well as connectors for HDMI and the upcoming "Display Port". Run all these things at once or connect 6 monitors like ATI did when they demo'ed the 5870 and things get super hot. If you stack a card or says layed it out face to face you're bound to hit a maximum heat dissipation zone where it would take major room to cool these things. Putting them on one long PCB with a high powered cooling duct helps out things quite a bit. Both my computer and Mindy's can run games on a 37" HD TV.

If you haven't heard one and have access to a 5870 through a friend or school or something, go into the CCC catalyst control center, check the box that says ATI Overdrive, click on the key icon, click enable manual fan control and slide that sucker to 100%. Then click Apply. Now you hear the sound of 1000 voices. No, that's the Moody Blues, uh, you hear the sound of what seems to be a Con-Air hair dryer.

Then there's, the longer you make a card, the closer it's intake air will be to the front where most of the cool air comes in on a conventional case. The HD 5970 is 12.5 inches. I think the Nvidia cards that will also have to pack in Physx on the board are going to be longer than the ATI's. That's why Corsair made the 800D a full 24".
