I'm sure glad you still post here, Muya.

And you're rig is still very competent and potent still. I rocked a Q6600 with 8GB of RAM. Such a rig is no slouch, even today.

Somebody give me newegg links to the best pc I can piece together for 2000 dollars, please. I think I'm going to get a new one and am so out of the loop on current hardware it isn't even funny. Also, brands do not matter anymore, just want the best.

Thanks.

Go to the last page and take a look at my rig. Then you'll feel better about yours, I promise.

Further advanced the build by tidying up the wiring so it's less noticable( still more work to do there), added black touch up paint in certain areas, and added the fan controler for the GPU loop as well and cleaning up the interior:

Thanks, guys. I feel like an idiot for even asking that. I know I could research it, but felt like I'd just ask others. Thanks.

I was going to buy on of those black XF bridges but I didn't like that it said fire pro on it, so I just painted mine satin black.
I'll be posting some new pics soon, just adding a couple of XFX DD 7950s....looks awesome btw

Thanks, guys.

Nice as always, Darth. If I hadn't needed that bottom tray for all my SSDs then I would've mounted the radiator horizontal like you did. I think it'll work out fine this way as well, though. It's actually working nicely since the fittings on the drive bay res and radiator are sitting almost parallel to each other.

Muppet - thanks. I've never gone all black with a build so thought I would give it a try. There will be a little color. I'm using blood red coolant, and that hasn't gone in yet. Thought it would give the impression of blood running through a black creature, or something.

Lee - the bridge doesn't bother me. I actually purchased it separately because I hated the ugly orange MSI bridge that came with the cards. This was the only black Crossfire bridge that I could find. I know you can always sleeve them, but I really didn't want to mess with sleeving right now. There's nothing I hate worse than having to sleeve cables.. although I know it's a necessity if you're after that extra clean look.
