good job man,
I thought this would have been a stand up case when I first saw the project - works either way.

No chance of that happening, Bender is bolted in place with a threaded rod in his foot.

I opted to make the case flat as the coolers I am building will be heavier than stock and I wanted to keep the boards warp free, especially the card in the 1/2 length 4X slot.

As for an update on the overclocking situation:

So far I have the CPU up to 2800Mhz with a 1600Mhz FSB, the G33 board gets grumpy pretty quickly past that but I had it posting with a 2000Mhz FSB but choking once I got into Windows. More research and testing needed there.

And I have both GTX260s are clocking very nicely, the 55nm Core 216 is especially quick:



The 65nm BFG will be the first to get a cooling upgrade as it runs hotter than the EVGA. Pics to come when I get that far.
