@ cncghee358, it is awesome. It is SO bright, and has 3 different levels of brightness.
and @ Uther39, It just BARELY touches the side, and I am currently working on a custom lexan side with a hole cut in it for the V6GT. And by BARELY, I mean, if it were about 2mm shorter, the side would fit on.

@Uther39, Yeah, pretty much. I'll post pics when it's done. I'm just waiting to get 2 case fans from a friend, so I can know where and how big to cut fan holes. They should be here within 2-4 days.

Here's my rig:






The specs:

Power Supply: Corsair TX 750
Motherboard: Asus P6T
CPU: Intel Core i7-920
Cooling: Zalman 9500
RAM: 12GB Corsair PC 10666 (6 x 2GB)
HD 1: Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB
HD 2: Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB
HD 3: Samsung Spinpoint 1TB
Video Card: Dual EVGA GeForce GTX 550 2GB in SLI mode

I had my old furniture completely removed and just got the new stuff in, and had it designed around my PC, TV and media cabinets. I know about the cable management - I'm pretty horrible at it but getting better. Although I did figure out a way to wrap the 12V cable around the other end of the motherboard finally. :lol:

Have you oc'd your cpu any? My brother owns the same mobo/cpu with corsair dominator ram with 2x gts 250's (so old lol) your setups are pretty similar except a few things and the tv in his room is 46 sony bravia.

What kinda benchmarks does your 550's get?
Haven't OC'd the CPU yet but I don't really know what I'm doing. I'm planning to upgrade the fan to a Noctua NH-D14 so overclocking should be no sweat (literally).

I haven't really benchmarked the 550s using 3DMark since I got the second one, I think I'll run that tonight.
 
Wow... You should probably do some intense cable management on that build. You've got the case that makes it easy, but the cables are a horror story in there. Haha it's worse than when i had my antec EA750's cables stuffed everywhere in my 902.

Yeah it's definitely a rats nest in there. Although I can guarantee the computer I use at work is even worse than that! :lol:

When I get my Noctua D14 I'll definitely spend some time and really rearrange the cables.

Yeah my antec 900 v1 has completely no cable management so what I had to do was fit everything between gpu and hdd/ssd lol and I had to redo my cables like 4 times to get them somewhat presentable.

Now I just need to figure out where to stretch the pci-e cords and I also gotta go back and re-lay my sata cables because they are getting ugly to the eye through my window lol...


You will be able to beast style oc that thing

I think the corsair h100 would go epic in that case lol, you could prob oc the 920 to godly limits lol
I was looking at the H100 but I don't really know much about liquid cooling and I don't have the extra cash to spend on a new CPU right now if something goes wrong. And knowing my luck - it probably will! :lol:

Yeah. I suck at cable management too. I could do it, and my case is very good for it, I just haven't gotten around to it. And, also, a lot of my cables/cords aren't long enough.

After much deliberation I finally decided to order the Thermalright Silver Arrow, when I get and get it installed I'll post an updated picture and hopefully get a lot of the cables cleaned up in the process.

Yeah. I'm planning on doing some intense cable management once I order my new power supply. Also, I'm getting 2 blue led case fans, and am currently working on a custom lexan side. I'll repost pics when I finish. Although, I think I may buy Starcraft 2 instead of a new power supply. Lol.

Pretty much the motherboard, CPU, RAM, and original optical drive are the only things I have remaining from my original build - everything else has been upgraded or changed at some point in the last two years. I think I'm obsessed. :lol:

If I remember correctly this was my original build:

Case: Antec 900
Power Supply: Ultra X3 850 Watt Modular
Motherboard: Asus P6T
CPU: Intel Core i7-920
Cooling: Original Intel stock fan (knew nothing about CPU cooling at the time)
RAM: 12GB Corsair PC 1066 MHz (6 x 2GB)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green 320GB + Caviar Blue 1TB
Optical: Plextor PX-B880SA
Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate
Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX 280 1GB
Keyboard / Mouse: Logitech MX550
Monitor: Acer H243 24" LCD Monitor

And this is the build now:

Case: Corsair Graphite 600T
Power Supply: Corsair TX-750
Motherboard: Asus P6T
CPU: Intel Core i7-920
Cooling: Thermalright Silver Arrow (replacing Zalman 9500)
RAM: 12GB Corsair PC 1066 MHz
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green 320GB + Caviar Blue 1TB + Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB
Optical 1: Plextor PX-B940 SA Blu-Ray Burner
Optical 2: Plextor PX-B880SA
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Video Card: Dual EVGA GeForce GTX 550 2GB in SLI mode
Keyboard / Mouse: Microsoft Cordless Desktop 5000
