thats a mad paint job.. :0
Well I decided to do a little heavy duty benching with this PC, so I pulled out my Phase-Change out last month.
It took me a couple of weeks to get all the parts and fabricate a new LGA1366 hold-down.
And then I prepped my mobo and made some gaskets.
heatsinks and cpu retention mechanism removed.
Painted both sides of the mobo socket area with clear nail polish.
filled the cpu socket with Dielectric Grease
re-attached the retention mechanism, cpu and gasket assembly.
Add power and were at a chilly -40C
Real Temp goes down to -7C and refuses to move, up or down
I've been benching SuperPi for a week or so now and I'm at 8.203 seconds @ 4.949GHz
oh you smeg head, some people have it all! rep added!
Nice Phase and nice Pi scores. +rep
^ What they said and rep++.

im so jealous! thats really cool tho
damn man, can i have a phase change? lol, those temps are insane... So can you freeze drinks in the case yet??

(haven't heard 'smeghead' in ages)
Well after my Phase-Change Super-Pi runs I needed a new mobo, after blowing out the voltage regulator circuit. So I went to the Egg and picked up this EVGA Classified 760.
My True Copper just barely fits, it's just barely touching the Northbridge Heatsink.
I bought the OCZ PC3 16000 DDR3 2000 a few months ago but I never took any pictures.
Everythings put back together and here's my new wire management.
And here we have my Black Beauties.
I envy you, I love that mobo. Turned out great mate.
Nice temps, i would like to see how far you can push your chip.
Here are a few pictures of my new OCZ Agility 120GB SSD (I'm waiting on Windows 7 before I install it).
To give you a perspective of it's size I've laid a box of Cig's next to it.
In order to mount this drive I had to order a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket.
As you can see I've painted the brackets Black and I drilled a couple of holes to mount a fan.
And here we can see the fan mounted.
Thats some nice kit you got there!
Lucky you, I really want to get myself an SSD for Windows 7 Also. I might buy the upgrade disk, I can order them for $30AUD.
