I'd rep you but I can't decide if its appropriate.

there really isn't anything to interpret. If somebody posts something, and it is helpful to you, rep them. pretty simple in my mind.

If they post something that you just enjoyed or liked, it probably isn't the best reason to rep. I mean sure there are a few occasions when you can rep for them not really being helpful, like the guy that is going to build a rig and sell it for charity. That is pretty awesome, and is going to help a cause, so rep is deserved there.

This is the part that makes it open to interpretation. What one considers to be helpful might not be the same to another. I think more importantly those rules are in place to outline abuse not negligence.

Anyway this is basically a waste of our time. Were not mods so it's really up to them where rep'ing has gone over the line.

Completed my side-window mod this week. Couldn't get a decent picture so I'll have to update it later. I put a Scythe Kaze Maru on the interior HDD rack pointed at the cards and have noticed no increase in temps. Good riddance ugly side fan

Yeah, I'd like to know if it's core slackage or just poor contact between chip and heatsink.
I got a core that is a consistant 6 deg. cooler than all the others.

It is not there because you think they have a good choice in hardware, or there because you agree with their opinion, or think they are funny.
It is there so that people can look at somebodies profile and see a rough idea of how useful they have been to their peers and to the forum as a whole.

I know this for a fact because I wanted an overclocked account, so I had to figure out how to get rep. I did it by going into the unanswered threads and answering them. People repped me, because I helped them, or gave them useful information that helped them. NOT because I posted pictures of my rig and people thought it was cool, or I posted something funny.

Please people, use the system for it's intended purpose, not for "fun".
I remember when I first went through this thread, I was looking for pictures of a black Phantom case that had all red fans and LEDs (for reference since I wanted to do a light swap on mine). Unfortunately I couldn't find one. So I went ahead with the swap anyway and posted pictures of it. Someone gave me rep, because once in awhile people are going to go through this thread to try and get ideas for what different setups will look like.

So if somebody posts a unique looking fan/light setup that isn't stock, yeah, I'll give them rep. It's useful information for Phantom owners, future possible Phantom owners, and people looking through this thread.

If that hurts your feelings, then deal with it.

That looks awesome with the color changing paint on there. I never really considered the larger size tubing when I designed the bracket. That's possibly something I could look into changing if need be. Now I feel bad that you had to change your loop back around But looks great none the less.

Maybe that's just an Intel issue. I've never had one of my cores be that much different temp wise. May they do have a slacker core in them
