    That cannot be safe.. Speaking of, I'm thinking about spray painting the inside of my case over the summer. Do you have any tips for me? Also, what kind of spray paint should I use (I want a matte black finish)?

    I masked off all the parts that put out quite a bit of heat. I've painted motherboards in the past w/ no issues.

    Painting a case is tricky. If you want to do a quality job it is going to take a lot of work. Otherwise the paint will scratch off easily. Hell even if you take a lot of time w/ it, it will scratch.

    If you can afford $50-$75 I would HIGHLY suggest getting it powdercoated. Super durable that way.

    I painted one case in my life. It looked good until I started to throw gear in it. The paint scratched off so easily. Then it looked like a ghetto rig.

    I was thinking about powdercoating, but I don't know if I'll be able to afford it. I knew spray painting would scratch of easily, but I looked up how to do it, and apparently it's pretty common practice, and a lot of people seemed to have spray painted it without any issues.

    Man, that matt black 8800 does look sick, but couldn't you at least remove the EVGA sticker? :p

    I don't think the eVGA sticker looks all that bad. Didn't know if there was a visble bearing underneath or not so I just left it.

    Anyways, finally watercooled my gaming rig last night.

    Damn these 2nd generation i7s are good with OCing...

    Is the top shelf of the rig bending slightly? It kind of looks like it is. Maybe its just the angle that the harddrive is on though

    Not exactly new but this was my third or so Skulltrail build and the plan was to turn a Coolermaster ATCs 840 into the Zotac GTX295 Infinity retail packaging and mount a Nitro into the front bezel which all turned out pretty good :)

    Cool, I've see a few of them in the build threads....... Nice work indeed.

    Do you expect someone to follow now with their measly quad core, crossfire setup? :rolleyes:

    That's not BTX. It's an upside-down EVGA SR2.

    Wish I had a better camera, makes it look bad. Now that I've settled on a fan configuration I thought I'd show this off.

    Cooler Master Cosmos 2 with 10 case fans +2 CPU fans all connected to the built in fan controller (3 splitters in use):
    -CM 200mm LED top fan, 120mm Gentle Typhoon AP-15 Top fan
    -AP-15 Rear fan
    -Dual AP-15 fans in the lower hard drive bay
    -AP-15 fan in Middle HD fan bay for GPU cooling
    -CM 140mm front fan and a CM 120mm front fan just below it which adds cooling to the HDDs.
    -Dual AP-15's in the side door blowing out
