You can't tell by the pictures due to the flash-on (I need a better camera to take it without flash), but its giving the case an "underwater" type of feel. Wish I could show you guys what I see.
Sorry about removing the pic Clee. my internet just stinks. DSL.. <<foowy
Bud, I'm loving that. Nice idea. it does take out that piercing LED lighting.
Looks great bud.. Nice Show......

Not that I know what the original discussion was, but based on what Danny said, personally, I, personally, don't believe there is such a thing as "overkill" with graphics. Game graphics will never stop advancing, so to me, the more the better.

Much appreciate the response & compliments Rogue.

I guess, sometimes, it takes a little trial & error with design ideas with LEDs. I think I'm official off the side of clear LED fans. I think the black LED CM R4's are the only LED fans I will purchase from here on out, but thats only if I continue to use LED fans.

Yeah I know but hold up the V6 and the V8, now hold up the V6, put a fan on the other side of a CPNS-10 and hold it up next to the V6, they look a heck of a lot more like brothers than the V6 and V8. Or, maybe it's just that light and speed controller on top. We won't really be able to tell until someone tests it. If it has the heatpipes on the pad like the Hyper 212 does then I will gladly admit it's an all CM idea.

In all honesty, how many different, high-efficient, heat-sink air coolers can there be? Seems all of the Hyper 212+ design types, like the V6 and 8 being discussed, are the way of the air cooling designs.

In other words, maybe it just the most efficient based design and the only real differences will be detailed specifications, such as weight, number of scales, type of material used, etc.

Just a thought, I'm no pro.

Hey my Nevada Brother! Oh, sorry for the edit, did it for content only.

Yeah me too, which is why I know I'll be buying the most expensive version of the (hopefully soon to be released) Fermi cards. Also I believe in Future proofing, I went 5 years without a single computer upgrade and man did I miss a lot but if this is my last build it's going to be all out. I will have the latest graphics and I've already got the money reserved for a core i-9 but after that I may seek gaming retirement. From what the magazines are saying we may have more to worry about from the next version of Xbox than from our own PC's.
For Enigma though he may not need all the power of 1440 shader cores.

Oh, I can't tell you why, well I can, the why is humans are constantly trying to out do themselves. The reason they keep trying to improve coolers, be they air or water is to get the lightest, smoothest installing, best performing piece of equipment they can with the materials on hand. When I started computing, the most a system had was a fan in the case, then fins on the cpu, then the fins turned aluminum, then copper, then fins with a fan on them. Get the idea, as long as we can make it better stronger, faster, smaller, we will.

I think if anyone should be accused of copying here it should be Zalman. They didn't even make rifle-style coolers. The had their circle shaped ones. Heatsink designs are somewhat standard nowadays.

I personally agree with u, but op stayed the 4870x2 was overkill for his needs and wanted to know what card would be a good alternative for him, so I face him my 2 cents. Me personally, quad 5970's wouldn't be overkill, even though u can only use 2 of em

Anyone thinking of spraying Desert camo this kid is the Shazilla




The 4870 x2 pulls like almost 200 watts on idle and the 5770 pull 17 and Im not sure of the 5850.
It not frames FPS that I am looking for.. I know that already. I know that 2 5770s is almost equal to a 5890 and 2 5850 are like forget it.. Im talking power green vs Horse power... I know they are both killer cards ... Thats why i cant deside. come on guys ... Advise me..

My computer stays on alot and the 4870 X2 was making Southern Company FAT. Big Power bills..

Come on if I could spend that much I would have DDR3 1800 a Thurbin 6 core and a new ASUS with the 890 SB with Sata 3 and USB 3 and then a 5970 if I had that Jack.

Hows the weather in Sparks? Vegas has been wacky. Freezing one day and hot the next..

Anyways, why would you be building your "last build"? Think this is a hobby that you can just drop? My friend, it is who we are. Techs.

You've seen my rig. What do I do with my PC? Attend discussions on OCN. Chat on AIM. Watch some movies, listen to music, and do school work. Long story short, I spend more time installing/managing hardware more than in Windows. I'm all about the hardware, because hardware alone carries my interest.

As far as GPU goes, I'm still running a single 3870. Haven't really been gaming since Left 4 Dead, and I use my XBOX for recent games. I think I have pretty much retired from heavy gaming though. I just don't have the time, and have lost a lot of interest in it.
