Outside the case.
Inside the case.
This is the entire insides, but this was when I was using a 240mm radiator which doesn't work very well in the 500r, so I've switched to a 120mm instead which works much better and looks better in my case.
My first big case mod project, using the Cosmos 2. Going with Formula VI once it comes out and the Red/Black theme (had doubts about it, so many blue/black and red/black themes out there ^^)
I want to do a purple theme, but noone makes purple accented parts

FYI I heard that that 770 4GB version suffers the same issue as the 680 4GB in that neither the GPU nor the memory bus can make use of the extra vRAM no matter how high the resolution (compared to the 2GB version). Only if you step things up to 2-way or 3-way SLI does the 4GB come handy at 1400/1600p or higher...your monitor is only 1080p.
$510 was pretty steep for the extra vRAM, did you buy it with future resolution upgrades and SLI in mind?
I'll be upgrading to one of those monster Korean 27" 1440p IPS monitors asap as they're able to be overclocked to 120Hz and as you've already guessed, I purchased the 4gb one so I can go SLi in the future as well! I don't know about the issues though as it doesn't really affect me at 1080p atm.

Finally got around to adding a third monitor and moving my room around a bit. Yes, the cat is part of the setup.

Alrighty, finally got something going!
