I see you went to all the trouble of sleeving your graphics card, but not your PSU? Too hard or too time consuming? I found it both to be honest ... :cry:

Mainly just the new Koolance RP-402X reservoir and MCP35X (PWM controllable). A fair bit quieter now (thankfully!) and that's with the pump running at 12V.

I think it's likely due to the acoustic foam that I stuck between the pump and the side of the drive bay.

I think I'll likely buy some better foam for my side panels as well since I don't think the Silverstone stuff does anything at all.

The only pending issue is UV lighting to make it glow nicely. I've never been able to successfully achieve proper lighting effects and as such removed the stuff I had in the case. Got to shop around and see if I can find something suitable since I don't exactly have much space to work with.

My room was a bit bright when I shot these though so maybe I'll do some more later this week before it get's too dusty ;)

Well the FT01 has been re-built yet again! Now it's off to my brother.

This time, it has an all-internal loop, with a Magicool 180mm radiator up front attached to the Silverstone Air Penetrator 180mm. Only the GTX580 remains watercooled though, I didn't feel like giving up my HK3.0 CPU block.

Nice JD. It's beyond me how you keep dust buildup to a minimum, if at all and even in the most difficult places. Cameras always pick this up but I dont see it. Do you live in Intel's chip production room or something?

Nope, I just clean things well before taking photos :lol:

I use this Pledge Multisurface spray that does a pretty good job at cleaning and keeping dust off, at least momentarily.

All my system do get rather dusty after running for a couple months. Can't do much about that.
