*Edit* Sorry, stupid question... You have to use parallel wiring when using 4 led's or more... Could you take a photo of a finished led fan that has been connected to the Lamptron Hummer?
Tell me if I'm wrong but do you want a working fan that has its LEDs wired up to the hummer so they can be turned on and off while the fan keeps spinning? If so, I haven't done that. I've just got a stock LED fan connected as you can see. However I am going to perform that mod in a build coming up in the next few weeks. Should be sweet! Oh and don't even get me started on how awesome the colour choice is! (Its still a secret.)

OK, so with that mammoth cooler on it,and I do gotta wonder how it stacks against Megahalems, Silver Arrows, Venemous X's etc...... what is the CPU clocked to? Those boards, for being simple... and basically a X58LE with extra SATA/USB clocks REALLY well.
And I thought the build for my other half last year was overkill. X58LE, 920 (no clock....only because she specifically requested it), 9800GTX (likely to become a 560 when Diablo 3 comes out), my old 1st gen Raptors on RAID0 and the CPU on water (she wanted QUIET, and I wanted cool.... this house is an oven in summer). I thought hers was overkill.... I stand corrected.
First of all, when you mentioned how hot it gets in summer there, it reminded me of when we first started modding our HAFs together. Man I love that memory! Makes me want to get out and paint something!
At the moment I haven't manually overclocked the CPU at all so its at about 3.3 I think. I'm pretty sure I'll leave it stock as I don't want my sister ringing up asking me why her machines bluescreening or anything! That said, I might just have to have a little play with it before I hand it over again!

What's the final spec list for this beast? (Excellent colour choice might I add
I don't think I ever did tell everyone why shes getting this big upgrade. Its because the 780i cata-exploded. Well not really but for some reason it would no longer display anything no matter what. Dead... At least your sisters rig is still working!
