hey guys sorry about the poor posts lately just a public holiday has made my rads get here even later than normal and didnt think youse would be interested in seeing a ssd still in its box .i picked up another corsair force 3 60g ssdd to go with the 2 i have already and the score above is only with the 2 ssd,s in raid 0 stripe wich to be honest is quick butt been haveing an issuse whille whatching movies and vids of my potable they deceid to go offline this is why ive bought another 1 lol.plan on runnig raid stripe 5 anyway and have benn leaning towards 3 wd 2tb black sereis harddrives or would i be better of with a different brand .any words of advice would be appreciated as always .

p.s i hopefully should have atleast one of the rads this week coming they orederd in one but there supplyer needs to order in the same rad because i bought there last one. so ill have to wait an another week or so for that one but aint going to let this slow me down next the EK-DCP4.0 pumps and my 2 manipulation resivours .now the pain staking process of waiting on the parts to arive

Cool design dude... looks good.

I find sketchup to be frighteningly addictive. I made the mistake a few weeks ago of sketching mockups of the next project one night when I couldn't sleep. Now I must resist the urge to start another project before finishing the first one.

ok so i started to put it all together this weekend and it seems i was a bit out onmy measuremnts with the hdd rack (about 6mm ) .i had it aal cutt correctly but was meant to weld the top and bottom plate mounted inside of the side pannels aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!! . so that put a stop to things .witch is really annoying cause with the setup of parts i have so far and a few from cuurent rig(the 1200wat psu and my 6970)i rekon i might fianally post a meaty benchmark score as my current setup is lacking in dont gett me wrong its a good setup just not a great one .i should have 2 670,s within the next 2 months and a third later on down the track .

p.s i thought 16g of ramm was over kill. know 32g or 64 g is total over kill butt with the ram prices thesee days why not

been busy spending money and ordering ing parts .so ive started sleeving cables throughout the pc build .they had sold out of 3x3 fan spliter cables so i just made my fans all ran the same length cable and sleeved them .then i ran 3 fans throught one male fan header .tested and it was a succes .witch is good because i now have the lamptron 8 ch fan controller .man this things a lot more intense then any other fan controller ive had before lol.for those hod like doing the sleeving i used the modsmart proffesional kit butt would advise on buying the lamptron sleeving tooldue the flimsy 2 prong 24 pin remover tool i bent mine madlly doing my pci-e cord and had to really force it in.pullng out the cable using my lamptron tool was a lot easeir just not cheaper lol.all right thats enough of me blabing hers a pic
