    Would love to hear the specs on that goe3n. I can already see the 2x Asus Matrix cards which look SICK (get a shorter SLI bridge that doesn't bend in the middle so much :P) but the rest of the specs?

    Has nice glow in it! (think those dual matrixes make it)

    I'm baffled though, where's the pc in the second image? That small box on the left certainly isn't the one above!

    I thought the picture's temperature as well as the hole in the wall gave it away, but I'm pretty sure the computer's on the other side of the wall.

    I HAD to use that SLI bridge, the cards are 3 slot card and I had to leave a space in between for air flow, the normal dual SLI and tri SLI bride I have wouldnt reach.

    Logitech G5 Laser mouse (soon to be naga if GW2 densest allow key binding changes)

    My PC is located behind the wall in my over size walk in closet,that small box is my 12" sub woofer for my surround system, all my wiring feed through the wall down below and hookup to the pc that is on a tv stand along with my stereo receiver, which is also my speaker system for my room/PC. This way any heat that is given off is in the closet, not my room. PS I have an AC vent in the closet so it does still stay cool.

    Epic.

    ..And second use of the word within two days, I should really calm myself. Even though there's been a couple of just awesome systems recently .

    Looking good Marest, I'm finding that I really like that red/black color scheme, as long as you don't ruin it with LEDs.

    He could do with a single LED that lights up in dark times, but this is stuff you have to be careful about...

    Thanks! Just hoping it will look just as good when it's actually finished.

    I think I'll try out the "X-fast" RAM function/software boundled with the ASRock Z77 boards (so essentially a cache drive for the entire system). If that isn't satisfactory I'll most likely end up using it as a cache drive for Vegas, After Effects and Photoshop.

    Hehe, so do I. I did buy a LED strip and some single LEDs that I might play around with, but in the end I'll most likely skip them. There are some faint red LEDs in the fan controller that look extremely sleek.
    Getting the cables to look "right" was a *insert bad word* pain. Took me a good 3 hours to just manage the PCI-E, 24-pin and the 8-pin cables.

    Somehow I doubt this PC honestly puts off that much heat with the good airflow/cooling solutions you have! But DAMN I love how you got everything set up! I would not mind doing something like that, looks VERY clean and well-done! Props to you sir!

    You're correct, the only thing that ever heats up is the video cards, once I get like an hour into BF3 the cards push out a good amount of heat, its noticeable if lets say the pc was on the desk next to me, other then that just regular use its so quite and cool I forget its there sometimes.

    Couldn't you wrap them in some very thin fabric (something like muslin or fine cotton, or even tights nylon)? That would diffuse the light, making it softer and more uniform. And because LEDs don't emit heat, it wouldn't be a fire risk.

    Would like this too tbh. This thread is pretty boring without pictures ^^

    State the obvious, why not? Harsh. It's still pretty :-(

    Out of curiosity, why're you going IB again?
    Or: Why wait now with the bad news coming? If you're waiting for your cooler I'd just replace it with a Corsair H60 as well at this point, given the poor overclocks we're seeing after all. :<
