Nice build, it will be interesting to see the WS Revolution in action. You could have a decent one rig Folding Farm with that thing...

What a monster... and a monster system to go along with looking good.

You should have the inside powdercoated or painted jet black, it would hide those cables a whole lot better and look freakin awesome.

looks quite good for your first build!!!! When you said that the v10 was a lot bigger than other heatsinks, i was kind of skeptical.. but wow, not anymore.

Now you tell me

Seriously, that's a great idea for my next build and with all black cables it really would look "freakin awesome".

I tucked all the extra cables in the lowest drive bay, so they really aren't all that noticeable and don't interfere with the airflow one iota. However, on this build I was debating between a modular/non-modular PSU but now there is no debate; modular rules!

All in all I'm thrilled with my new rig but the "monkeys" been whispering "build another one" and this time powedercoat it, put in black cables, use a modular PSU, put a couple of light kits in, replace that GTX285, put in quad GTX295's, get a couple of 30" monitors, use a i7 965 etc. etc. Well at least I can dream - eh?
