Default Well here is my rig.

I had to reduce the pics of the rig quite a bit to fit into the size limitations, but you get the idea. I have to redo the striping around the RAD as it just looks ugly right now, and I can't find any good weatherstriping in the crap little town I live in so that will have to wait for another day.

Hey!!! you got a lian-li sticker with your case!!!! ( I want one).

I love this series of cases. The cooling of them is surprising for only 4 80mm fans, and they really are solid.

Nice looking build.

The original plan with my rig was to install the 2X120 rad in the same location, but when I found I couldn't easily mount the single on the back I stuck the single in there and mounted the 2X on top.

Default Thanks for the compliments guys!

Thanks for the compliments guys. Yeah, I have to give props to the wife for surprising me with that case a couple years ago for Christmas. I just love the Lian Li cases. The dremel IS your friend. I had a great time modding that puppy. After seeing the other guys case with the RAD on the bottom I may just put my 120 x1 down there and introduce it into the cooling loop right after the VC. Always good to get a fresh perspective on things. That may help bring things down a little bit more. As for the case badge, my case came with it, and I have never seen any others with it. Maybe I was the lucky winner of the 1 Millionth case??? I have updated it a little since the pics were taken. I stealthed my optical drive, and want to put a little LCD screen where the floppy bay is. Now if only I could sneak that past my wife.

Yeah. The Opterons are fantastic. I own a few of them, and wouldn't trade them for anything. Not even the QX6700 I put together for a customer 2 weeks ago.

Did you have any particular screen in mind?

I've looked at some of the kits, but they seem kinda pricy for what you get.

I keep thinking of looking up some of the modding sites to see what's out there and how hard it would be to put together. (I cut out "front windows" in two of my 5 1/4 bezels.... it'd be kinda cool to do the same for either a single or all three of the 3 1/2 bezels to fit a screen into).

Default LCD screens

One of the things I still do to keep my hands dirty is install and repair ATMs. Some of them have a nice little 800x600 16 Bit screen that is 5.5" diagonal. With a little extra Dremel work I'm sure I could make it fit nicely. As for my Matrix Orbital Mx222 screen (shown in the pics) I was lucky enough to happen across the Matrix Orbital offices down in Calgary when I was down there training the Field Engineers for Direct Cash on how to repair NCR ATMs. I got a super kick ass deal on my screen, and I actually got to watch them assemble it right in front of my eyes!!!!! Those guys rock!

And back to the LCD, I think my little ATM screen idea would work perfectly. I just need to find the time to fabricate a connector for it that will connect to either a DVI or standard VGA plug. I know the pin-outs of both, so I just need to get the time to solder one together.
