Default TJ07 rough build :D

I'm absolutely in love with the stock TJ07 case

It's machined perfectly, it's got a nice sleek design, and i think it looks great. Not too happy on the price, but I bought the case @ NCIX when it went on sale.

Nice- What kind of overclock did you get with this rig?

(is that a kink in the tubing in the lower compartment?)

Any particular reason for moving the 90mm exhaust fans to the outside of the case? And yup, lots of rads, but it looks like 2 GTX 295's in the loop as well as an i7, so lots of heat to move.

lol thanks guys.

It looks like a kink in the loop but it isn't. for some reason it just came out like that.

I've overclocked the CPU to 4.4 GHz @ 24/7, but just recently dropped it down to 4.2, at 4.4 GHz, i was pushing 1.45v, which is quite a bit imo. I've managed to boot into 4.77, but obviously, not stable. HT on, always.

My PC Idle temp is 37c and load is 68c, give or take 2c depending on ambient temps.

I needed a little more room to work with on the inside, so i moved then to the outside. Not sure if you can see or not in the third picture, but the aluminum fan guard is there.

I cut a piece of wood and used a hole saw to cut out 2 holes for the fans. I painted it a gloss black, and it sits flush with the case. Using L-brackeds, I mounted them with glue and later drilled it down. it's not coming off.

I'm also using 8 GELID Wing Green 12 fans, and my pc is super-quiet. They all run at ~2000RPM and push 65CFM each, but I barely hear them, and my PC is right beside my desk.

No, that's my brother's pc, which is a CM 690 Nvidia case I won.

and I'm considering selling one of my GTX295, what would you say is a good price for it?
