Nice!

Things should speed up a lot the next couple of days. Going to be a great weekend :-)

Should you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I think my main concern is going to be lack of airflow over the board, so I'm probably going to ask about your board temps and if they are in a safe range. My build is going to be on a Lian Li T1 test bench, so it has litterally no case airflow but then again doesn't really have a case around it to hold heat. Going to have to remote mount the rads somewhere on my desk but that isn't so much a concern as the boards getting to warm.

I see. As soon as the system is up and running, I'll do a temperature check for you :-)

Thanks! Also, I see that you are doing some cable shortening on the PSU. Are you going to sleeve as well, because if you are going that far and with the theme you are going with I think it would be criminal not to! Very interested in how your cable shortening goes as well. I'm a bit scared to do that but it's almost necessary.

If the cables in any way become a mess to look at, and I am VERY picky, when looking through the Window - then yes, I will shorten it and sleeve it. One of the advantages about using the Reference 670 and having no HDD bay is the amount of room I will have though. We will see :-)

Got home - Saw package left at backdoor - Got in - Yelled hello and vanished into "The lair".

Ripped box open - Ripped another box open - 8 minutes later Reference cooler is off and left in a corner to die.


Must say, they are leaving more "swag" in the boxes than what I am used too - Stickers, more stickers and a huge poster - Useless!

Can't wait to see how much that shortens the length of that card as compared to the MB it's going on to. Loving the short PCB.

Here you go, a naked Reference GTX 670 in all its splendor attached to the Mitx MB.

Will post as soon as the Waterblock for it, comes through the door - Shouldnt be long now.
But as you can see on the Watercool.de pictures I posted earlier, it does not add to the length or width (Just alot of weight, lol).

As I stated earlier, this combination will not exceed the motherboard tray at all - Giving me loads of room to play with regarding cable managment, radiator and fan (I already knew about this, hence why I ordered the Plexi 180 shroud from phobya to go between the fan and radiator).
