Guys,

With all the beautiful systems and impressive overclocks that I have seen so far here in OCN, I have now decided to fulfill my satisfaction.

The most rescent and descent shot is this:

Here are the photos of my system before the mod.

I think this one is sexy

I didn't know that as I found some people not liking koolance. I bought this one beacuse of the sexy look. Aside from the fact that it really looks like a performer.

I ordered it from the acrylic compny. They cut it our for me including the holes. they did a pretty clean cut.

I disassembled my great fan to look like a skeleton. great fan from AC.

I am actrually planning to remove the grill.

it was never planned but it seems that the fan fits nicely onto the 6mm thick acrylic.

if i may make a suggestion. what about a nice (mesh?) cover to go over your PSU/rad?

still allow for airflow, and hide the rad/psu

looking good anyway


this is one awesome idea but i am not sure where to get the mesh!

Guys I made some progress.

I need to cool the Video Cards so I have decided to change the direction of the side panel fan from exhaust to intake. That made my SLI cards 10 degrees cooler in idle and about 25 degrees in gaming load.

Here are the photos with a little bit of side panel modification (added a vynyl on the edge to make it looks better/at least in my eyes)





...adn I have another question, i want to put the Autobots logo in my case, is it good to put it on the top or on the side panel?


LOL

Thanks, I will probably just leave it there at the top as the other side is facing the wall.
