OMG it looks amazing. I'm actually so happy that you accomplished what I didn't have the time or patience to do myself.

I hope you enjoy it. I know I would have :)

Now I know nobody cares anymore, but I did make some changes:

OS Ubuntu 10.04 x64
Video BFG GTS 250

Also installed VDPAU (VDPAU - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Runs like a charm :)

That looks awesome. I want one.

I love that episode of South Park too. My favorite episode in years.

I know those pumps, and yeah they really are SILENT. I had a couple of those in my main rig and changed them out for their big brothers - since I was so impressed with those. I'm not so impressed with the bigger ones and am going to go back to those when I find some time. But I'm pretty anal about noise, if I can stand beside my computer and tell it's on then it's too loud.
