notice how the motherboard try is rotated 90 degrees, this is to maximize cooling, since hot air rises cool air gets sucked in the bottom and is pushed up and out the top... very unique case.

Some other notes about my system...

I just joined nvidias "Club SLI" and my system is already ranked in the top 10
http://www.slizone.com/content/slizone/clubsli.html
(currently tied for 8th, you will see it on the right hand side)

My 3Dmark06 scores are the higher then anything recorded by Club SLI (altho they havent posted them on the site yet). My score = 21985 see the link below

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=13892421


My 3Dmark Vantage benchmarks = 31537
http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dmv=2198724

Heaven 2.0 benchmarks = 1373
(all settings MAX)


All of these results are without ANY overclocking. When I overclock the CPU (which i should be able to get REALLY crazy with since I water cooled it) it will give my 2x 480s room to breathe and get even better benchmarks.
