That is probably the sickest mod I have seen. Once again, hero.

Thanks man! :)

Sleeve it anyways! You dont even need to do the 'single braid' style. Adding some sleeving color would look sick!

Maybe next year i will redo the PSU in red :punk:

Will do and thanks.

Well the 5770's have finally arrived so I can get back to work on this, all I am missing now are two 24" SATA cables to reach the RAID array up in the top of the case. And yes, the cooler on these cards looks a lot like the 1989 Batmobile.

And they actually fit!

And with enough parts to keep moving ahead I have started wiring the case:

Had to cut the top LED strip down by a centimeter to fit properly:

And Back panel wiring has started too:

Those absolutely look like the Batmobile! Will people be able to see into your case?

No windows except for the OS on this machine (bad joke), there really isn't anywhere I could have put one with my layout. Before someone rips me for picking up the Fugly Gigabyte cards they were $60 cheaper than the Saphire Vapor-X's and have a full set of Low rds mosfets, ferite chokes and solid caps so I can live with the gaudy shrouds. They do beg to be modded though :blarg:

Does the bat-mobil plastic do anything? If not you should get some legos, and make it into 2 cars.

Once Arctic Cooling makes an Accelero heatpipe radiator that fits the 5770 I might just do that with the little car shaped shrouds. The shroud does actually direct air over the board components, so i will leave them as is until I have a better solution (warranties are nice too). :thumb:

do you have 3 fans on that heatsink? I wonder what the cooling difference would be compared to 1 and 2 fans.


Just two actually, the red item is just an empty frame to put the exhaust fan closer to the exit point on the case.
