Open that thing up and give us the grand tour. Can't see anything from that pic unless we peek through the open drive bays. :lol:

I take it the PC is overheating? Or is that not a ghetto cooling system I see? I guess it would explain the open drive bays.

by looking at that pc it looks well old and naff but then you tell us whats in it, shocker. isnt it wierd that a fan that big gives better colling and less noise and can be cheaper lol.

ordinarily the bigger the fan the more CFM, and less noise, unless the fan is unbalanced which sometimes happens, and i have definitely used a window fan instead of my case door fans on more than one occasion

Looks like I might want to do a little bit of dusting lol. Only thing I thought I might do is paint the grill of the V10 to match the rest of the Black/Red theme..of course, I thought of that AFTER I put it all back together lol

Thanks :)..yea the airflow isn't bad at all...I actually have 3 200mm fans(front,top,side) and 2 120's(top and rear)..the 285's in SLI is pretty kickass..only games that I have thrown at it that run less than 60 fps is Crysis and GTA4(even that runs near perfect).Batman is near flawless.I can't physically fit a 3rd gpu though with the motherboard I have in this case. Even the 9600GSO I have won't fit with how it looks now. oh well..at least the new dual-gpu's that will eventually be released will take care of that

Did the paint myself.( Rustoleum- Semi-Gloss Black and Apple Red ) I think CM should have done the inside black in the first place but oh well. lol :)..I might see if I can get that PSU holder to retract more so I can possibly put a bottom fan in.

Ready or not here i come !

Just upgraded my case from this : http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.a ... 73&ID=1411
to this : http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Product.a ... =1480#Tab0

Believe it or not i bought the case for 85 euros. Yes, EIGHTY FIVE !
It has integrated watercooling system in it ! I only had to cut two pieces of tubing for the cpu block and just connect them with the IN and OUT tubes coming from the pump / radiator (lol i dont even know where they coming from)

So now my pc looks like this :

Side 230mm fan :O
Image

Top
Image

E8200 @ 3.20 Ghz, Vapor-X ATI Radeon HD 4890 2 GB, Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3l, Corsair CM2X2048-6400C5, Tagan TG700-U33 2-ForceII Series
Image

Side panel open (pro cable management again :O)
Image

LCS radiator fan + top of water cooling tank
Image


Oh and i almost forgot my secret weapon for removing almost any dust from all my computer's components :
Image

I laughed too at first when my fiance told me to do it but i gotta say its VERY effective.
