    zalmanis obviously better but more important is that noisless,

    [​IMG]
    procesor can get 240FSB, what mean 2650MHZ but not stable maybe because my crapy power supply...max stable fsb was 235 what mean 2587MHZ, but stil too much to run 3Dmark03 and PCmark04 :( lets go down 230FSB = 2530MHZ (CPU 1.6@ 1.8V, AGP 1.5@ 1.8V, DIMM 2.73@ 2.9V, VDD 1.61@ 2.0V) temperature on cpu after some tests (6hours full of 3dmark and pcmark) grows over 64 celsius :( 33 in case and 35 degrees WATER TEMPERATURE

    Imho You should get the Zalman res to look silver/grey and somehow mount it in/onto your case!
    It's a bit longer I think, maybe on a side like on the mods of Defyant. :naughty:

    This is an awesome case.. but I am dying to know.. Did you color that CD rom with a marker??? Oh, and congrats. on winning the Zalman, that thing is the bomb, never realized it was so HUGE though. I gotta agree, strap that bad boy to your case some-how.

    The thermal stack effect won't work if the reserator isn't standing upright.
