Insane... thank you. Insanity is what I aspire to .

As a little side note, the recent update to Valve's source engine-based games to enable "multicore rendering" shall be tested thoroughly. lol. As will any other application that claims "multicore" support. I fully intend to put all these pieces of software to the test.

It had better be for the price im paying for everything, lol. All said though, It will still cost me less than half of what the retail price of the components would be (deals Ftw!). I'll keep everyone updated as the parts start to roll in...

My System Specs

Default Coolermaster = Awsome!

Lades and gentlemen, today the Stacker 810 arrived at my door... and what BEAST this case is:




But.... the best part? The case was shipped with UPS from the States (which made me somewhat sad since UPS always charges import + duty + whatever for bringing stuff in). However, I was shocked when the delivery man didn't ask for any COD... and instead returned to his truck and drove off. "Why?" I thought, "Why didnt I get charged?" So I pull off the invoice and see this:





Way to go CM!!! By saying the case is of "No Value" and pricing it at under $1, they have denied UPS the right to charge me import taxes and the like (since AFAIK those fees don't apply to items $1 or less).

Just missing a couple parts now.... and then the BUILD can start Stay Tuned!

This project is already straining my wallet... and I haven't sold near enough stuff yet to make up for it all (although I'll have Another FS thread later this week). Besides which:
#1- I haven't watercooled in many years... like 5-6 at least....
#2- WCing is still 2x-3x the price of aircooling
#3- I don't think the spacing of the two rear 120mm fans is correct for a 240mm RAD (there's a space between the two 120mm fans) so I'd have to mod the case for that too...
#4- ..... Its a Beauty of a case. I normally don't mod new things (but then again im putting HR-05's on the motherboard.... )

Arggggggg, what to do... need more votes.... anyone?

1. It's like riding a bike, you never forget. Worst case, I ain't too far.
2. Yes, indeed. But I only found server-type HSFs which are far from being the equal of a high-end HSF, and even less from WC systems.
3. It's easy to fabricate a bracket with the correct spacing.
4. Agreed, but it can be done with taste, and professionalism.
5. We are mainly pulling your leg... and I'm sure the end result will be quite mind-blowing!
