What's called a labour of love, and I don't think I'll be building one anytime soon....but then I'm not a gamer.

Cool case mod, but why is it that everyone thinks only gamers mod there rigs?

Well, cool as in the temperature sense maybe.But orange?
Lot's of blues and greens,then it would really look the biz.
I'm surprised that he's only managed an increase of around 33%(3GHZ to 4GHZ) regarding the CPU speed as i have a 25% overclock with just air cooling.

He modded his case after the film a clockwork orange, so im guessing hes not that good at case modding so i expect that's why he didn't overclock his cpu to its maximum.

I agree about the colour, iv seen some truely stunning case mods, far better than his anyway.

3 GPX cards? And 2 blown up?! I would hate to think how much he spent on that machine.

I'd forget the whole thing about watercooling and change some of the components rather.

i7 940>> i7 920 overclocked to 3.8Ghz(stable)with
a good CPU cooler (Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme

3x Gtx280 Tri-Sli(waterblocked & extremely expensive)>> 2x Gtx295 Quad-Sli, a saving of £400ish and beats the Tri-Sli.
