NH-D14 w/ 2x Aerocool Shark 120mm :) I was considering zalman ones but I went with Enermax Clusters (120mm white led) to Aerocool 120mm white led. I still wouldn't mind replacing the sharks on the cooler for some zalmans just because they are solid white without led, I just hope they do my cooler well :)

I need to find a way to clean the dust off my cooler, would 91% or > iso alcohol work to get it back to tip top shape like when I first bought it e.g. I dip it into a tub of the isopropyl and let it soak. Not sure :/


but yeah I love the cooler ^_^ cant wait till I get my black SLI bridge!

Finally reached the last page since I got behind :wahoo:. So many great rigs and I really want to update my main rig (found on page 5 in this thread) so I post an update :sol:. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until November before even thinking about upgrades or a new system :cry:.
Guess I'll just enjoy the gallery :love: until then.

I'm back! I've got my system in a temporary case that I borrowed from a friend for now. Working on a new case. Here are some pics of it in the temporary case. Not the best CM but this case is somewhat small for the size of the power supply cables.



Custom HDD mounts cause I couldn't find the real ones :p


Only temporary


Doesn't look too bad


Inside from the front


A little dusty

I'll post right now!




The cable management is hard in this case I can't put everything in the back because it gets too fat and the back plate doesn't want to close. I don't have a modular PSU >.<, so I have the two pci-e cables stuff in the bottom.

Looking pretty good. I'm actually using that same case right now while im waiting for my NZXT Phantom. Pretty good job with cable management considering the case isn't great for doing so.

This is so weird...I was going to get the NZXT Phantom as well but decided to switch to NZXT Switch for the nice Side panel view. The side window on the switch is bigger than the one on Phantom 410 and the Phantom Phan doesn't even have a side window, thought the fan controls are really nice :|. Also thank you, it's so hard to cable manage in that thing.

so no CF-X bridge but are you getting the scaling performance, is it really technically CF-X or you just got two GPU's in there.?
if all handled by the x16 slots then I doubt it could scale well at all if it is CF-X.

tell me about it..

regardless:
I'm sure a HD 6870 for around $130 is got to be a better set-up.
just curious and opinionated..

It really is CrossfireX, the 5670s were made that way. You don't need a crossfireX bridge, they don't even ahve slots for them. I would show you the AMD chart but it's updated since they stopped making the 5670. Now it performs somewhat like the 4870 and 5770. The story behind me cross firing the 5670 was because I got 1 5670 as a gift. I decided to build my computer (my first one), and was budget restricted. I just got another $50 cheap 5670. I'm playing MW3, WoW, Skyrim at great FPS.

I'm just curious bro, never seen it before.
if it works for you then that's all that matters..
All low end GPUs can do Crossfire or SLI without bridge, the PCI-E lines are capable of mange those configuration without problems. 5770 or above in this case, need the bridge.
