@ Striker. I think I found you some pics of a 5850 block that are clearer and closer than the ones I found on the EK website.

When you say "water cool it", do you mean Aquamist ?
I would definatly want to chip that, full induction system, straight through exhausts, swap all consumables for high performance stuff and for peace of mind a decent roll cage with minor weight reduction

As long as it's got the 80+ anything rating there isn't usually a problem with the heat because the housings are good enough now and the thermal design is such that (most of) the heat leaves the case no matter which way it's oriented. Anything 80+ Silver or better doesn't really even make much waste heat. I know personally switching from 80+ to 80+ silver not only made a major difference in heat but in size (smaller thinner), weight and I also saved 45watts when running full load.

Oh yeah, I don't think I've ever actually seen a study as to what difference it makes one way or another. They used to have the fan pointing in because they were at the top of the case and they figured it would help vent the hot air. On the bottom, pointing down is usually the coolest part of the system, on the floor or desk. Pointing up I can't see that it would increase air flow, if anything it might take heat from a card close to it and help vent it. If you point it up just be real careful nothing ever drops into it.
Well said, I was pretty worried something would fall in there when I had mine fan face up
The only thing I would add is that it seems all PSU's I have seen are made to face down(lable is the right way around). Also if its not 100% modular then the fixed cables will be closer to the back of the case, giving you more cable for cable managment(is that a good thing ).

Looks good with the lable facing the right way around and it doesn't look like it would benafit you flipping it anyways.

Why not just go with something propper like this -> http://www.swiftnets.com/products/APOGEE-XT.asp, scroll down and you get exploded pictures and a breif description on how the thing is made
(I still want that block so badly , but then means I need a full custom loop)

On another note, its winter here. The H50 seems to like winter(well no duh). I am browsing the net at 3*c less than my usual idle. Does anyone else notice big differences in temps throught the day ? Usually on a normal summmer morning I am idle at 28*c, then in the same afternnon/evening I am at 29/30*c ?
Right now(morning here, GMT+2) I am at 24/25*c.
Actually looking at the individual core temps I think I might have a problem. Heres screenshots to show you what I mean ->

IDLE(with minor browsing)




STARTED PRIME95




SYNCED WITH POST DISPLAY LED




The -32 min CPU temp on Hardware monitor is from when I suspended the PC last night, dunno why it does that(can't be true, else it would be flash freezing the CPU).

The individual cores are all way to different in temps ?
Also two of the workers fell behind quickly, the 3rd being the furthest behind.

I'd really love to, but I can't justify spending that sort of money like that for something I may take an interest in.

Do you have any friends or family with a DSLR? You could borrow it and try one out for a day or so and then make upp your mind.

No, unfortunately not. I think I am the only member of my immediate family even remotely interested in photography, let alone technology. I'll have to see what I can find used, I guess.

Here is some Pics i took using my Nikon D3000 and my parents Nikon Coolpix S500, the darker pics are from the S500 and the warm more vibrant ones are from my D3000
All pics where taken from the exact same position using my tripod, with maximum of 2 minutes in between so the lightning is basically the same in all pictures except for the Bigger and Macro pics with the S500 which used the flash.

PM Me for originals, they are alot bigger and easier too spot the difference in.

Macro Photography, using Manual mode on D3000 and Macro mode on S500


A Bigger picture with alot of details, the D3000 delivers smoother details and sharper edges


Picture of front Led fans, the D3000 manual settings alowed for longer shutter time and therefore a feeling of the fan moving compared too the S500 which makes it seem too be standing still.

Glitter paint-done. Water cooled-done. Chipped-on the list. It's gonna be mocked up to look like Eleanor. Well Eleanor inspired anyway.
