A new Idea i got.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am not finished yet, i have 2 eVGA 7800 GTX KO's that i water cooled..that being said i had to take off the nice covers that come with the video cards..considering they are 600.00 US each i couldnt stand those covers not being shown off. so what im in the process of is mounting the covers and fans on the black side of the case to match.. and i bought some dye that will make my water glow with UV lights. so..im going to put Blue LEDs under the video covers to make them glow... i will put the original fans back on the covers to make it look good as well.....this is the progress iv made so far what do you guys think. i will post more pictures when its complete..

on a further note...if you got a small enough radiator a person could use the video covers for a rad cover...

Now you could put some 60mm fans in those gaping holes.

i suggest going all out on your case now that your doing a little modding (as am i =]) also.. i know you didnt ask, but i would suggest getting a dfi board...90% of you computer parts are R4P3 , but you got an asus... jp but the dfi's are the *****..just a suggestion =\\.. um as for mod suggestions.. i would say paint everything that is silver on your case black.. and aslo i would suggest getting white cold cathode =]..idk i can't thi9nk of anything cool at the moment so whan i do ill get back to you -trey
