Never did like viewing the back of a graphics card.



So I thought Id do something about it.
Got myself a 0.5mm sheet of aluminium.
Did some cutting and bending and ended up with this:


It looked pretty crap so I painted it black and added some lights and now it looks much better.

That looks great, much better than the crappy gigabyte cooler which I think is the ugliest thing in the world, nice job

Ok so it was yesterday, but anyway...

Installed my 60GB OCZ Vertex II SSD and put Windows 7 on it
Installed my two new 1TB Samsung F3's in a RAID0
Set up my Previous boot drive (Seagate 250GB) to have important data on it

Cut my hand on my case

And realised I should buy another right-angled sata cable

well I bought a pump and pump top in the for sale forums last week... today I sleeved it and fitted a bitspower casing. This is also my first real attempt at sleeving, using some sleeve left over from my psu, which I also bought in the for sale section. It will be a while before this is in my rig, but it's all coming together slowly and steadily.
