Original build was a tuniq tower 120 extreme and the unmodified ASUS DCUII GTX580s. Overheating issues on the top card forced me to go liquid cooling, but given the age of the GTX580 and being a non-reference design, had to go closed loop. Thus the Arctic Accelero Hybrids. Not all prices are accurate as one of the GTX580s was purchased used for $200 and the Vertex 4's purchased on sale for $205. Windows 8 was the $15 upgrade offered in the first 6 months.
Games quite well, and given my investment in video cards(rather silly, could have bought a 780 for the price of components added, even excluding the purchase of the original 580 at full price 2.5 years ago)
GPU overclock is next. I don't see any issues with reaching 900Mhz or more.
More pictures added, including some inbetween stages. That jumble of cables actually has liitle to no impact on the airflow, and I have that single molex cable fully populated, there is a fan controller hiding up there and flow comes from the bottom of the case. (It doesn't help that the h80i is upside down)
To all the comments, yes I know "Closed Loopy Ghost", but hey, it was fun. The EK waterblocks for DCUII GTX580s were all out of stock, only ones I could find were still attached to cards. My plan is to upgrade to the 800 series of cards when it is released, money isn't really an object, just felt like stretching the 580 investment out a little longer.
