Default UD9, 980X, 5970+5870, 12GB watercooled upgrades almost done

just finished some upgrades to my gaming rig (well and HTPC)
went with a UD9 as I got it cheap, and liked the looks, was able to lower voltages quite a bit over UD3R (everything same)

complete specs:
mobo = UD9
CPU = 980X (4.42Ghz)
Video cards = 5970+5870
Ram = 12GB DDR3
Sound card = X-FI
HD = 4x OCZ SSD's in Raid 0, 1x 2TB WD Green for storage
PSU = 1500Watt Strider
Case = Mozart TX
13 fans, 2 rads-push/pull, 1 pump, CPU/VC waterblocks
good enough for now...

Nice builds. That mozart TX case looks more like a portable generator than a computer case. Think I'll have to google some more info about it.

My System Specs


Your HTPC is better than most people's main rigs. Geez. Anyways, that Mozart case is nice. But is it ever big. But big is what we want when it comes to watercooling.
