Very impressive...that's some serious firepower of a cooling system:D Did you do that color insulation on the pwr rails yourself?

Posting a couple zoomed in images with the CH4EX with the full coverage black in place and fully hooked up. With the 8800GTS SSC cards taken out I also took out the single 120mm rad for the time being. I'll put it back in when I figure out what I'll put in next long term for video cards. Been trying to find 2way tint instead of 2way pre-tinted acrylic/plexi but hard to track down locally. I do have 20 black light LEDS coming in either tomorrow or Monday and a Corsair AirFlow Pro. I'm hoping the leds will be a good replacement for the cathodes. Trying to slowly make things less obvious. I also finally have the parts I need coming in to mount the center push fan on the 3x120 rad which you can see there is still a gap there.

Sidenote: things are a bit of a mess (dust etc) and a touch un-organized right now compared to how I intend to have it since I'm prepping for other changes.

EXOS>CPU370>HD6990(bottom)>HD6970(top)>HD6970(middle)>Exos.
I would have used a connector between the middle and bottom graphics card but someone said they wouldn't line up >:[ , and theres a random drain valve at the bottom. Those are my excuses for the messy setup. MB is ASUS P8P67 WS, 2600k cpu, Haf932 case (Had to remove some features so Exos would sit level on top of it XD).

Went through all the pages and I must say I am really impressed at these setups. If my PC wasn't down cause of the exos leaking I would post my project. Been building this sucker over the winter and when I am done with it and get everything in I will post some pics up.

By default, my setup is minimalistic, and looks almost factory-stock.

This is my 2008-vintage IBM IntelliStation Z-Pro 9228, with two dual-core Xeon 5160s getting cooled by a pair of CPU-300-V10s and an Exos 2.0. The machine's current video card is an overclocked MSI Twin Frozr HD6870 with two quiet 80mm fans, so there's no need for a waterblock on that yet. Replacing the stock IBM heatsinks and fans got rid of the jet engine sound while the machine crunches for SETI or runs SolidWorks, among other things.

It's kind of busy inside all that steel chassis, but that's IBM for you:

From the front, showing how the Exos 2 sits nicely on top of the IBM workstation, complementing the hard drive fans:

yes i just painted them. I was thinking of spending more time on them, but i just did it in my free time at work, so I didn't color sand the orange peel out or anything, or clear coat them. Prolly taping them off and painting took me a total of an hour at most.
