Anyway, I know that this is a little late, but has anyone else seen the I Buy Power version of the Vulcan? They look kind of neat:

Options are always nice, but im going to stand behind my Zeon themed Vulcan biggrin.gif

Though, I need to buy another vulcan and fix the mistakes Ive made, but that wont be til july or something

So I went to IbuyPower and built the equivalent of my system. I actually got really close hardware wise. I'm gonna be able to do it for $250 less though. All the goods will be here Monday (wooohooo!!!!).

I personally don't understand what all the fuss is about LEDs and lighted cases. Maybe I am just weird but I think it is (no offense) hokey looking. Call me weird and each it his own I guess.

Will post specs of my machine when I get a chance to compile them. I'll post pictures when I am done building it too. Hope I get some sleep next week. biggrin.gif

To each his own, but it seems like we are slowly transitioning from cold cathode lighted systems with acrylic side windows to mesh ones being lit mostly by LED strings/fans right now. Personally I applaud the change as I find the cathode's light tends to be a little harsh after a while.

Hrm.. I wonder if the new 6990 will fit? It's huge!

The 5970 and 4870 X2 both had a single fan config, plus they ran hotter. However, I totally agree that these dual gpu cards should have dual or even triple fans on them.

My rig:
Core i5 2500k @ 4.5ghz w/ 1.272v
ASUS P8P67-M Pro Mobo
Thermolabs BADA Cooler
2 x 2gb DDR3 OCZ 1600 RAM
ATI 4870 512mb

It runs well, I'm still working on overclocking it more though...too bad the mobo is such a pain. It seems to be having the cold boot issues that many asus p67 boards are having plus you can only offset the voltage the cpu wants, not set it directly.

I took a lot of time messing with the cables but in the end I couldn't find a good way to manage the cables between of the 2 HDDs and 2 ODDs.

Any idea where I can get a long enough fan screws for a Push-Pull setup on a Coolit ECO 120R ALC? The regular 1/4" screws are too short.

If anyone has ideas on how to set this Push-Pull Config up without using long screws, please post it. =)

I'm planning on mounting it on the front 120mm fan of the Vulcan and a fan filter in the front grill for dust. Also I am planning on removing the base 3.5" expansion slots for hard drives due to the Push-Pull configuration and putting my WD Raptor 150GB on the top 3.5" slots. Will that work? Will I need to do anything special to the removed area of the bottom slots after I remove the mount?

These are all just speculation as I do not have the case yet.

My Video Card will be a Sapphire 6950 2GB with the Push-Pull Config. I hope it fits with the Coolit ECO 120R ALC Config.

Thank you for all your feedback.

Thrall, how did you get your cables to look so nice? I have the same power supply and it's a complete mess in my case.
