Never thought I'd see a rig with Noctua fans that actually looked good together. I guess shoving so many of the same color scheme fans together makes it look less noticeable than my NH-D14 that sticks out like a sore thumb in my case. Solid build though I like it and I just notice it runs without a side door for more air? =o


Also love the Britain box it sits upon although I think your Queen would frown upon a box of sheet metal sitting on top of her flag. :P

Dude, I love your camera, those shots look like they were clipped from a magazine! Of course I like your build too, great job all around, from the built to the pics to the uploading there of...All done well!


p.s. Is your 920's stepping a D0 or a C0?

Thanks for the replies guys, glad you like it..... The side door is off just for the photos... The 920 is a d0 stepping and I can get it 24/7 at 4.5ghz stable apart from in the summer months where outside temps are reguarly above 40c.The walpaper is from mountain lion stock wallpaper. I love the noctua fans, at full speed they are barely audible and have much better airflow than the stock corsair fans...
