    So I'm back, with photos!

    Crappy cable management, but it cleared up the front at least, managed to get the NZXT LED kit installed and got me a Corsair Vengence K90 and loving it so far.

    If only the K90 could do what Logitech G series keyboards could do and turn pretty much any color. Red keyboard + red case lighting would've been a nice match

    Yeah it's unfortunate >.< That's one feature I miss from my G19, it's gonna take me a while to get used to the layout of this keyboard.

    X58 + GTX480 SLI awesomeness ^_^ now there's a setup that uses enough power to make most normal PSU's cry and curl up in a ball.

    Is the CPU cooler able to get enough air sitting like that, only a millimeter or two off the graphics card PCB?

    2x Ref. GPU's sitting ontop of eachother get enough air, so I guess it does. :P

    something is telling me i have done something wrong with this build but i have gone over it 20+ times anyway here is the pic's

    I'd argue removing the bottom fan on that cooler, but eh.

    Here's Calzaeth's rig. This is the rig I'm sorta techsupporting. We're done with that, we're just kinda fucking around waiting for something now.

    Specs
    i7 3770k
    Antec Kühler h20 620
    Sabertooth Z77
    G. Skill Trident 16GB kit running at 1600MHz
    MSI Lightning GTX 680
    OCZ Max Iops 120GB
    Seasonic X-...dammit, I forgot.
    Corsair 500R




    What're we doing that's fucking around? Well, till my brother gets his replacement watercooling fittings the computer's staying (since Cal's borrowing a PC from me for the moment anyway). My brother wanted more drive space, and I suggested RAID. So here we go, 2x Corsair Force 3 240s. (Not sure if in RAID yet. Let my brother try and figure that out on his own.)

    While true, virtually any movement whatsoever will easily change that to any other orientation.

    This is mostly a myth as far as case airflow is concerned, the natural convection currents that carry warm air up are so weak that fans pretty much have a 99% say in which way the air goes. Especially in a closed environment like a case.

    Hot air goes up, except when it is pushed by fans. Then it goes where the fan tells it to go.
