    It's coming along, missing a titan for now, long story, and as the blocks are SO HARD to re-align with the damn fiddly O rings, I left the block on and braced it from underneath.

    With a single card, runs around 23 degrees idle, CPU at around 32ish. Need to get some more 90 degree fittings for those pesky hoses too. That top left one is really irritating me. But everywhere was closed over Christmas.

    Just a heads up Nianif, you may want to resize your images, think there is a rule where you can only have them so wide.

    Nice way to ruin your laptop aesthetics with stickers

    So much hardware though! I dig the chair.

    @Fierae, that looks asbolutely brilliant.
    Why the blue rings on the SP120's though, they have white rings in the box. Also there is 4 fans blowing in, 2 out. Is this done intentionally?

    They do indeed come with white, I was undecided, the white rings are sat by my desk. I may decide to swap them over just to see what they look like, but then again as the motherboard/RAM have blue in them, I thought it may compliment it quite well.

    As for the fans, positive pressure in the case is better, from what I've read. If you have too many fans pushing air out of the case, air will get 'sucked' in through all the cracks in the case to compensate for the pressure difference. When it is the other way around, air tries to find its way out of the case instead which is generally better.

    You must not handle things well. :P My friend who got a Sager (RL friend) has it still going and he does it for some real heavy-duty work. He makes 3D models and renders them and such. All with that little laptop!

    Build quality differs. Just because one holds up, doesn't mean another will. And the opposite. Which is why "You must man-handle your Razer/MSI/Sennheiser's (or whatever) because mine works flawlessly".
    Not everything will break because it has a chance to.

    And I expect shipping to Greenland plays a part-

    That's a fair point tetris, my only reasoning behind it is because my friend got one of the cheaper ones and as I recall, the one Inux got wasn't so cheap. :P But, you make a good point, especially about the shipping, thus I'll give Inux the benefit of the doubt and rescind my point.

    Mind if I ask how?

    I thought they each needed a dual link DVI to run at 1440p and don't support adaptors to Displayport.

    Are both of the DVI ports on one one of the cards dual link or something?

    Overclocking through the nVidia control panel.

    Not officially within the DVI guidelines.

    I think he was more wondering about how is Inux hooking up 3x1440p monitors when those monitors say they don't support anything other than DVI-DL and no DP to DVI adapters etc.
