The moral of the story, children, is that rust can indeed save your pc. If only so it can live out the rest of its life as the hardware equivilent of a quadrupal amputee...sigh. poor Galvatron never did overclock as well after that.

I have those also. They work fine, but on the 1/2 - 3/4 tubing; on the cpu water block the clearance is VERY tight trying to squeaze two of them in right next to each other.

Are those IDE cables? wow, haven't seen those in years. Flip the hard drives around backwards that should get rid of some of the clutter at the bottom.

Finally got a PSU for my folding rig, so I re-did the wire management and added my two other 880GT's:
And yes, I know that the cooler is mounted differently than it's supposed to be. Since the northbridge on this board is right on the side of the CPU socket I can't mount it how I want to. I might get a new one...
