    There is a cooler behind it , and another dual rad in the front, so think will do just fine. And if not , t can always change things.

    You just gotta Love EK!
    One Question on that though, are the blocks silver-plated to that they fit-in with the shineness of the case ??

    Was no option for silver plated at the 8800GTX blocks , so now took all copper , otherwise will be to much different , now all blocks look the same .

    Have you ever seen mercury? The case is so shiny it looks wet, and for sure it's made of metal. Good name IMO.

    i just noticed that there are two EK 8800 water blocks there, dose this mean SLi 8800 GTX's


    also please colour code them to the mod, i see so may mods done well, then they stick water blocks in as they are.

    Solyent Green is a good example of colour coding. :rock: :D

    Wanted them all silverplated , but was no option at the 8800 blocks .

    Then put the cpublock at his place.

    [​IMG]

    Also the radiators have the same highflow fittings now.

    [​IMG]

    I hope the nb block will fit there with the vga cards, but the blocks is in place.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now hope the vgacard still fitts .

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It;s real close :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But it works :)
    Now put everything back on the mobotray.

    In a word... WOW!
    I would have thought that chroming the entire case would have been too much, but damn that looks good!

    So having sponsers makes you like, a professional modder. Do you make a living doing this? If so sweet! That computer + case when finished will be worth like 3 months salary for me, so I guess making a decent living on it is possible, huh?
