    What lights do you guys usually use? I wanna light the roof of my case with some LEDs, but I can't find anything that will fit.

    Yea I kind of think that is what the gallery is for but, nonetheless nice rig.One heck of a heatsink.

    Dont really have a window on any of my current rigs anymore. I used to love my old UV case. Kinda grew out of it.

    Now, I just run some LEDs the back I/O panel and Expansion area. Each rig gets a different color. It looks like its spilling out the back when the lights are off. Tasteful Tackiness I call it. :)

    outside lookin in

    I have posted this one when I initially built it, but quit a bit has changed. I just ordered a Phenom II 955 BE from newegg to replace the KUMA 7750 BE (i was insanely jealous of Super's super_Pi score of 22 sec :). so the final specs will be:

    DFI DK 790FX M2RS
    Phenom II 955 BE @ 4Ghz?
    8 Gb OCZ Gold edition DDRII
    Triple CrossfireX 3x ATI HD 4830 @ 755/935
    Sigma Shark 635W + FSP Group Booster X5 500W
    2x Seagate Barracuda 500Gb S.A.T.A II 7000.12 HDD
    OCZ Vendetta HS&F
    ASUS Lightscribe CD/DVD/DL
    Case: SunbeamTech AC-1 with corefan
    Windows Vista x64 home premium

    The mod I guess is that I routed out the bottom for the heat sink on the 3rd 4830, it draws air from under the case....right there where my daughter slid the poker chips :)

    Damn, way to over kill, I wanted a clear case like that, but they're a big pain to build.

    I wanna put this type of LED in my computer:

    unfortunately for the ones that are programmable, they are really spendy.

    lol the 295 is 2 gtx 260s basically with the 280 core and the 295 would pwn 3 4830s.
