2x 2GB Mushkin Redline 8000s, 2x 2GB Mushkin Ascent 8500s
2x Swiftech 655 pumps

Looks great, and damn is that ever a huge case!!!! :)

I notice you've got your memory listed as 2 ascents and 2 redlines, but both sets appear to have the ascent heat spreaders.... what's the deal with that?

Unreal. Even compared to regular MM cases... and you do a great job of pulling off the "white" look. (Although some white wire grills on the front might look good, imo).

How are you running so many hard drives? My Maximus only has 6 SATA slots and a single IDE connector.

Shame about the 4870X2 waterblock. Seems like that card is trying to give all the waterblock makers grief. EK went through 3 revisions, and there was the no-post problem, and now you're saying the DD version isn't quite up to snuff either...

Here is your answer: Redline Memory - Ascent XP2-8000 DDR2 - Mushkin Enhanced

Ascent Redlines lol. I was confused about it too when people kept saying "Ascent Redline" I was like "wtf are you talking about??"


haha
