Second ran an ek 480 with 360 radiators stacked on top of each other, i7 980x @ 4.4Ghz and 4 EVGA 670 ftw later switched to 4 EVGA 780 ti Kingpins
Third computer ran 2 danger den 120mm radiators 2500k @ 5ghz and an older zotac gtx 480

Those are some serious setups! Where did you get the open frames themselves, or are they DIY constructions?

First one is a Lian Li PC-T60B
Second is the Thermaltake Core P5
Third is a Lian Li PC-T1B Mini ITX spider
I like the Lian Li PC-T60B for its industrial look, the Thermaltake Core P5 because of how much you can add to the system, and the Lian Li PC-T1B Mini ITX spider for its quirky, sci-fi robot look. If I was to choose just one of them, it would be the Thermaltake.
