well, my first ocz stealthxstream made a high-pitched whining nose. Went thru an RMA, they didn't have any in stock, so gave me a modxstream pro. This mxp works like a charm, I love OCZ, haven't had one blow-up on me.

About the harddrive suspension, yeah, it probably works really well. But, yeah, it sorta does look a bit ghetto. Isn't there a way to suspend it in a more "organized" way?

Overall, i like whut u did with the computer, . Nice job with the wire-routing. I hardly see any wires!

Yea, but the OP probably did it on a purpose...I remember my dad mounting his turntable on a rack with elastic bands on the four corners to "isolate" it from the vibrations.

It looks like hell on the picture tho...

Ditto on OCZ. Lots of people here seem to have a severe distrust of OCZ PSU's, but I ran a StealthXStream 500w for over a year a while back and I loved it! Quiet and stable, never gave me troubles.

Changed my fans a little, I'm now using a Lian-Li BS-03 to exhaust hot air out the back of my case from my video cards and a Enermax 80mm fan on the cards instead of the two yate loon 120mm ones I was using. The idle GPU temps only droped 1-2 degrees, but the full load GPU temps dropped 6-7 degrees and the MEMIO dropped from maxing out in the mid 120's to rarely going over 100 degrees. I'm not so sure why it use to get so hot but I'm much happier with this now.

On rare occasion, but I've never posted pictures of my computers before.
