    Please stop quoting images without breaking the image link.
    And in fairness, it's not only a big trackpad; It's more a small computer.

    Well, it's finally finished. I hope I post the images correctly, if not I apologize.

    I'm thinking about sleeving my cables all white to match the inside of my case, but being about to replace the PSU in about a month I really don't want to do it twice lol. Guess it'd be good practice though. And I still need to work on the backside as I did what I could to keep it organized back there, but I still need to put force to get the back panel on .

    Finally got my GPU back, so I decided to make a new pic, now with all the parts in it.



    Had to move my soundcard because of the gpu reactor thingie, which is probably just a gimmick anyways...



    Pretty creative heat fin shapes aswell...

    Temps went from 98°c in furmark to 55°c.

    Well the bend on that heat fin looks more like a manufacturing error.

    It's fine, my 580 also has some slightly bent fins where the screws attach. It probs has zero difference on performance/temps.

    I like the blue PCB the Gigabyte GTX 670 has. It matches my blue and black theme!

    Finally assembled it, couldn't be arsed thursday/friday, feels like a $50 chair, guess I'm not buying from Jysk again.

    Still need to return the motherboard, but it's hard when you don't have the motherboard box, got no car & the nearest post office is 45 minuttes away.

    In preparation of my 1st attempt at custom water cooling, i spent 4 hours a couple days ago cleaning the system for dust, re-cabling the system and Throwing out 2x 2.5 inch HDDs to make space.

    Feel free to request more images.

    Did you get a waterblock yet? The GTX 470 waterblocks are pretty much not being produced anymore, I think.
    DigitalImpuls.no have it though, it seems. Only the plexi nickel one though.

    My plans are as follows:
    1. Set up a loop for the CPU, using a 200x200mm radiator and the MCP655 water pump.

    2. Crossfire 7970s or Sli 670s

    3. Cut out the top of the case to fit in a 360x120mm radiator in the top and add the two GPUs in the loop.

    The 470 may get in the way of the Pump/Reservoir because of the closed loop kit sticks very far out towards the HDD trays. So i may have to borrow a 6870 from a friend (he has a short version) until i can get my hands on a 670/7970.

    If you know you're gonna run Crossfire HD 7970s, I'd try and get my hands on the original waterblocks for them. The new CSQ blocks are fine and all, but require additional stuff to connect several cards.

    ---------- Post added 2012-08-26 at 09:29 PM ----------

    Just so you know... sometimes you get lucky with radiators. Lol.
    Terribly sorry for the flash light and shit, hard to get a picture of it otherwise.


    Anyway, I'm currently running a loop in my 650D.

    Absolutely gorgeous Drunken, looks like a lot of fun to build in.

    The water effect with that coolant is awesome.
