    Very, very clean mod there, certainly looks the part. Not sure I like the amount of lighting but the workmanship is awesome.

    Cheers guys :rock:

    A minor update from Insomnia 44

    Purely coincidental but while wondering around i44 somebody noticed the Tuck Shop selling Kingston caps so we asked to borrow all they had for a photo opportunity with the X79 mod..........it took some explaining to the bemused looking girl but we got there in the end :D

    Very nice system, 4.8GHz seems to be the limit on these. Did you go straight multi or did you push the FSB?

    Are they HyperX BLU RAM modules, what speed?

    Really nice clean lines. I have the same "layout" with the water feed out of the port on the GPU nearest the CPU running horizontally across my case, which is the only thing I've change on my build - yours looks more intentional, and therefore cleaner, which is great to see.

    I assume you have 2 loops going on in there. What's the temps like, and what settings are you having to use to get it running at 4.8ghz?

    You going to get it folding? :)

    Top mod mate.
