Here's a protip. I bought a window AC unit for $70 from Home hardware. Run it for a couple hours a day tops and no more sweating to death or can't sleep. My power bill barely went up. Everyone can afford AC and everyone should get it.

What happen if the cat decides to just go there and sleep? It been proven that cats try to sap our electronics device.

Really nice setup, I like the fact of having and open computer like that, easier reach and such!

I like it! To see the guts all hanging out like that is cool. Reminds me of the first time I saw computer parts out of a case, I was hooked at that point. Is that a transmission cooler??

I really like the idea of running that thing passively while being overclocked, I can just imagine what its like to have that few moving parts =) I personally dont mind the sound of loud fans all that much but I deffinetly see the alure of running almost 100% silent and I really like the way you did it.

Thanks again all. the nb fan on the EVGA x-58 is now the loudest part. I may have to put a waterblock on it.

Pretty nuts. Although I kind of liked it with the rad loose against the wall, it made you look more like a mad scientist. Cause you are. It would be "pimp" if you could get some retro looking led's to blink sequentially or something so it looks like a star trek TOS super computer or something.
