the red thing is a duct for the cpu fan. the psu is flat along the bottom of the case. it is the bit of flame paint you can still see when the door is open.

why are the cards so close to each other? how are the cooling fans supposed to work like that?

Haha its probably because of the frickin weight of the cards, like 15 pounds or something

Actually in the pic, the graphic cards don't look watercooled...isn't that going to overheat like crazy?

I really want to know the temps of that beast. Dell prolly went their usually course and put in 1 80mm fan in the back or something.

I just want the 30" screen, that would be awesome, wouldnt fit too well on my desk though.
