Ummm where's the sli connector gone?
I couldn't see it, did you forget it?

nice case choice btw :)

And having one of thoes zalman fan controllers I would advise connecting the wires first esp if you have a dvd below it, then it can be a bugger to reach it.
Gobsmacked!! was the pc plugged in?? Sod the credit crunch i wants it, Hmmm just need a cunning plan to convince the missus that i need these things. good job fellas..:)
I have resistors for my case fans (CPU is water-cooled) as I know even at their limited speeds they're enough to cool components down. However, I have to say I've always had my concerns about using manual fan controllers for CPU/GPU. If the device is getting hot enough for it to require a higher fan speed (which the device automatically controls) and you're manually limiting it, surely you're going to run into overheating problems?

That's a good point. I use a fan controller at home for the CPU and GPU. When building the system I always stress test the system and monitor temperatures as if I was using the PC as normal. I would then manually change the fans speed to a point where I am happy with the noise and also the cooling they provide. I then know when temperatures raise the provided airflow will be enough.

I did this with Nick's PC but it seems to have been edited out, not that I am complaining Nick :D :rockon2:
Sorry guys, time constraints on the length of the video did mean we had to edit some of the bits out… but believe me, the PC is running, healthy, performing very nicely and sadly upping my electricity bill each month as I forget the bugger is running cos I can't hear it.
