    I will update the VGA cooler once the Nvidia 300 series cards come out in a few months. I didn't want to spend money on a better looking VGA cooler when I plan on upgrading my Graphics card. At that time I will drop a dime on some nice EK blocks for the SLI set up as well.

    did you sand it down, paint black and then a clear coat? or did you just paint on the standard shiny metal with that? looks like rhino-spray for the back of a pickup truck

    Its a beauty!!
    Loonym...You are missed.

    The element of one

    Breathe me in
    Breathe me in

    I disbelieve in separation. I close my eyes to see you.
    This is for you, everything I am. This is for you, take it from me.
    I, I disbelieve separation. I close my eyes
    there's no escaping me
    This is for you, everything I am. This is for you, take it from me.
    In your heart in your soul. I perceive rejuvenation

    Breathe me in. I am forever. Deep within I am eternal.

    I will return to you. I am with you always. I will never turn away from you.

    I did not sand it down. Just cleaned it off an applied the spray-paint. The Rust-Oleum Textured Black does give the appearance of Rhino-Spray, but only after applying the second coat.

    Update - 10/12/09 - Temps

    I had a chance to Overclock everything and recorded some temps for those who were asking for them.

    With a CPU OC @ 4.25GHz, my temps for loop 1 are as follows:

    • CPU - 61 C
    • ChipSet - 62 C
    • VREGs - 54 C


    These results were recorded after 30 minutes of a CPU burn with Prime95.

    I was able to reduce these temps even lower, but it was by cranking up the fan speeds, which for me kind of defeats the purpose of a quiet, liquid cooled PC. The temps above were recorded with the Rad Fans @ 1,100 RPM which is barley noticeable. At 1,500 RPM the temps go down, but they are a bit loud loud for my taste.

    On loop 2, my OC'd 8800Ultra @ 715MHz, 1250MHz RAM never got above 55 C during a stress test using both ATI Tool, and rthdribl. Obviously only having one card on the loop is making it pretty easy to stay cool. It will be interesting to see what temps the GPUs will maintain when I throw two GT300 series cards on it in SLI. Hurry up and release the new cards already Nvidia

    Sad that the chipset runs hotter than the CPU even under water. Still within safe limits though. Nice job!

    You know the first time i saw this case, i thought it was really ugly.

    But the more and more i see you guys build off it, its starting to look better and better each build.

    Now you guys almost got me wanting to get one.

    Very nice job..

    Don't know exactly, but it isn't light. I would estimate around 60-65lbs.

    Your screen setup is awsome too. Everything looks so clean and nice! =) How about some 3DMark scores and such?

    My 3DMark score is nothing to brag about since I am using an old 8800Ultra to hold me over until the GT300 (Fermi) series cards are released and I get two for SLI. But here you go:

    I really like your log and build.

    This is really good work on the new case.

    Please keep us updated as you upgrade parts within the system such as graphics card.

    The nicest dark blue tubing I've ever seen. That's saying a lot, as I usually hate dark blue tubing.

    Great job overall.
