Myabe in a few months i may get another one and SLI 2 7850s as they are relitavely cheap and good performance or a single 7970 3GB depending on which would result in the best performance.
    I meant "which company is building it?" As in Asus, Gigabyte, Sapphire, MSI, XFX etc.

    What is the expansion card between the sound card and the first graphics card?

    firepro v7900, it's the GPU, the 590's are solely for CUDA

    Probably upgrading my 6750 to a 7850 next month. My graphic card has always been slowing down my computer.

    yes I cut room for to let air exhaust from the 240 rad in front with my poor dremel skills. Atleast you can't see it.

    What is that color? It looks like dirty white or greyish. Also, are those noiseblocker or phobya fans?

    the fans are gelid wing 120mm fans, the colour is grey and it looks really good in person but my camera is not the best.

    It's not the camera, it's the whitebalance being very off. Look at the walls and it's pretty obvious the whitebalance is too 'warm' as they call it. :B

    Why did you choose to not paint the rest of the 5.25" slots and the powerbutton and panel?

    I like it how it is to be honest, looks even better without the reservoir and only the 5.25 inch covers but the reservoir/pump combo was perfect for the build so whatever.


    @Drunken
    That's it, ill take better pictures later when the build is almost done

    Yeah I can understand that, but with the reservoir in wouldn't it look better with the rest of it grey as well?

    Truth be told though, most cameras tend to overcompensate just for the sake of making sure you get a picture. Ie my Galaxy SII's camera turns up the ISO (digital enhancement based on what pixels it was able to catch on photo), resulting in a very grainy picture very quickly. If not, it will often (over)compensate with a variety of other settings...

    So take your time with the photo, basically.

    I like the fact you didn't paint all the bays white.
    Off topic but you can turn that feature off on the SII

    I've noticed. And I have to admit I'm a bit intrigued that you think I didn't notice.

    In fairness, I have one, and haven't noticed because I don't poke around in the settings.
    Either way, unless you want to post a picture of your SII or link its specc (IF you are gaming on it) -- which would be totally cool -- we are drifting off-topic.
