Yeah, you can beat those high-end enclosures that turn things upside down

Although they are a bit expensive, I have no problem recommending Lian Li enclosures.

Sure Mike,
I ran it windowed so I could keep an eye on the temps.

Stability test, unchecked full screen, 1280x1024, 2xAA. I just let it run a few mins. I had CCC overdrive opened and 2 instances of GPU-Z to track all the temps. Also, my core was at 900mhz. Ram still stock.

Its funny, there is nothing fancy there just some ram sinks, mosfet sinks and the D-Tek Fuzion GFX 2 block. I had everything so I didnt need to spend anything more to watercool it.

I love Lian Li cases...but I just cant break away from SilverStone.

Ill be getting a new case this year, I'm sure they'll both have great stuff to offer.

Silverstone cases are top notch too. I've used both. The TJ07 should have had 2 x 120s at the back though, not 80mm fans I prefer to not hear my PC.

Wow that's a tight fit. I really like to have at least 1 slot between the cards for airflow.
