My System Specs

Heh... I can always remove the side to view if I wish, and the bay res has a little window I can peek through. :)

Think of it like a sleeper car, pretty quiet on the outside, but tweaked a little inside, :)

As far as the temps go, yeah I'm really happy with the GPU temps, and being an older block on a fairly hot proc I wasn't expecting miracles from a 240 rad loop with both a proc and a fairly hot GPU. The OC on the chip is also running on auto volts just for quick stress testing. I'm sure I'll be able to drop the voltage down a peg or two and bring those temps back in line. (reading around 32c idle IIRC).

Once I get stuff dialed in, I'll wrestle the beast upstairs into some slightly better lighting for my completed project pics. As usual, nothing fancy, but hopefully enough to convince folks that If I can do it, they certainly can too.

edit: Once you've got the case side back on, it helps temps a hell of a lot if you have the aft fan pointing in the right direction to exhaust rather than drawing air in..... ;)

That said, now that I've got it facing correctly (dunno how that happened..... :) ) those GTs move an awful lot of air considering they're only running at aprox 1850 rpm.
