Pics work for me.

Are you going to leave it like that? Wouldn't it be really dusty or something?

Oh I get ya Infiniti ...lol....hmmm a case within a case....maybe smoked acrylic...nooooo!...stop it!!...can't do anymore "projects"

I will probably leave it as is, it is only for the summer months so no point in doing anything long term. As for dust geokilla, I did the pantyhose trick at the top of the vent as a filter, works like a charm

Jon di2? maybe next year I'll just look for some pvc tubing and paint it to match

Nasty Tstorm a brewin here....heading out to watch

Ya really bad lightning, thunder scared the day lights out of my little 3 year old.
Would there be any problems with condensation with that kruzn4evr or because the ambient temp of the house is the same there's no worries.

Good job there Bob! That's quite the missus you got there to remind you of the pc ghetto mod you need to do.

Any difference in your gpu temps? Get some folding going so you can really test your new cooling system!

That storm was wicked! Last year, when a storm came, I told the office staff at work to save their work, as the power in Ajax always went off in such weather. It did go off, and I was the only one who had saved all work, sht down pc, etc. I gave the same warning today, and was lucky enough to be at the Harwood Tim Horton's for lunch when the power went again. When i got back, there were several messages from staff begging for help due to lost work.....
