Since the power supply and case were the first things I got, I had the most time to work on them. I could almost say that I spent 4 months on them, but it was only for a half hour or so every day. I went through a million different techniques. I think the wire loom lookes way better than a bunch of wires just tie straped together.

Yes, excellent work my friend. That thing must get some nice airflow. I guess I will have something to beat when I finish mine, which should be within a week or so.

@m3trj:

What temps did you get before and after with the VF-700?

Make sure to get this one than:

I noticed that you got the Zalman 7000, and not the 7700CU, which is 100% copper. Get an all copper one, it is a better conductor of heat and the extra dollars it costs will go a long way.

I planned on that. The reason I didn't get the 7700Cu is because I cart my computer from college and home almost every weekend (Im too attached...) I dont want that thing to fall and break everything, that would just suck.

How did you get your wires to look so neat, What did you use? Where are all of your other PS connecters?

With no overclock:

Stock: 40C idle and 80C load.

VF700-CU: 31C idle and 50C load.

Also with the lower temperatures I could achieve a higher overclock before it began to artifact.

I have the all copper version, which I reccomend. I was concerned about weight, but the card seems to be perfectly structurally stable.
