Guru3D Rig of the Month - April 2011 -
11. Did you modify anything ? cases/video cards/other? Did you do it yourself? Walk us through it.
I put the whole thing together myself. It was even my idea to use the U bolts to hold the cube radiator down on the top of the case. I custom fit and filled the whole system with a spare power supply I had. Just trip the Power OK and a ground wire to turn it on hee hee. All case holes were drilled out with a cordless drill and then the use of tin snips. Yes it was hard. For the video card, I cut a small notch out of the stock plastic shroud to get the water tubing / block to fit. It was only a 30 dollar water block but it works extremely well. The GPU never goes past 55 degrees C under Furmark. I would get close to 85 degrees C with the stock cooler. It also drops my room temp in the summer time by a few degrees. I went with the water cooling to get the huge amounts of heat out of the case when it is warmer outside.
12. Your 3DMark06 / 3DMark Vantage score (P+GPU)
Ill have to get back to you guys on that.
13. Do you have any Future updates planned ?
I cant wait to start seeing the 8 core AMD AM3+ chips in stores. I hear that chip has about 50 percent over what my X6 can do. Its either that or Im getting a new case. I really like the Corsair 800D
