This was my biggest problem as well and the fact that I like black interiors.

I also didn't want to add more "damage" to it that I've already done, so I was contemplating the PC-P80 instead. It's freakishly humongous and apparently barely fits the SR-2. It's also ridiculously expensive @ almost ~500.00 after shipping and taxes I lucked out because NCIX had a sale for PC-A77Fs this week for $279.00 after taxes and free ground shipping. It's still obscenely expensive and only has 8 slots, but when I have to look at the alternative... it's almost "alright". Too bad the interior is bare aluminum.

It's something you have to accept when building an SR-2 I guess. Even with a "medium tier" SR-2 with the L5639's it's still gonna cost you... a LOT. I just hope it's worth it in the long run Good luck to us all

I've done a fair bit of research, and I know the board fits inside my Lili A70. You should be fine with the A77.

I was sorta contemplating it for a while... but if the wifey ever intercepted the credit card bill I'd be dead meat... no questions asked. I however consoled myself by picking up a GTX 470 today ($199. at Canada Computers Black Friday sale) and I have two more GTS 450's on the way... Hopefully I can stay competitive once everyone get's their SR2's online. This could get really interesting... I'd just love to see our team top NCIX's PPD average, even if it's only for a short time...

If we can ever get close to NCIX I would be honored. There are a few NCIX guys who fold for us too, and lend a hand when needed, so I deeply respect those guys and their team. They have been Canada's #1 team for years, so due respect is warranted too for that reason.

Agreed!!! when I first started folding DT was pumping out around 200K PPD for our team to help us out... I wasn't even aware at the time that he was from another team as I was new to all of this... NCIX also helped us out enormously during the chimp challenge to make the great showing that we did... So yes due respect is definitely warranted. It would just be really to get cool to get to their level or beyond...

I don't know what pie you reckon Ncix is giving out to their folders, but there has been nothing except a few draws for Ncix points in the last year. I think you'll find that HWC has had more contests/ giveaways. The idea that Ncix is anywhere on the same level as Evga in terms of giving out benefits to entice folders onto the team is pure cow manure. I apologize for going further off-topic in this thread.

Looking forward to seeing more progress on the SR-2 builds
