Bleh!!!!!

So, my hope to take pictures, ever, has been derailed for a while. My main camera is down for the count.
However i did make a subtle change today... First person to point out the three changes gets a prize!!!!




Please excuse the horrible picture. It was taken with my Samsung GSIII

I'm also thinking of a couple of things to change.

I'm thinking of drilling out individual holes on my mid plate for each wire of my PCI-E Cables so they just passthrough, or i might just have another one made.
If not, i might pass the cables from behind the mobo, from the bottom.... do you guys think that would look good? or should i just go with the midplate option?

Good day Matt, looking real good.

I like that idea of putting the cables through the mid-plate.

Excellent build, I must say! Have always loved the TJ07.

How about black tubes, blue coolant and fittings at the mid-plate. :) Looks good.

Wow i'm behind with posting in this thread :S
Thanks Toyoracer :)

You're Right!

Im excited to state there should be some new stuff coming soon, and if plans fall through i'll have a special write up on this SLI setup I'm running.

Currently i'm working with ColdZero in development in custom parts that will be available for sale when this project is completed. We're designing a HDD mounting system, as well as custom midplates and a few other awesome little parts.

I also have some case modding that I just never seem to get around to doing. Lots of cable management has gone by the wayside, and to be honest, that needs to be done asap for me to be happy at all. Still lots of work.
Maybe I should change the title to "Long Term: " lol

In regards to the Galaxy 660ti's, I love these cards, together they are probably the best bang/buck you can find. Individually, with a slight overclock, they keep pace with GTX670's and together i'm getting ~75 average ~90 peak FPS in BF3 at 2560x1440.
i'll have more detailed information regarding scaling etc.

These things are beasts. Best bang for your buck under $700
