I think kj mentioned that card a while back. Seems to do a good job for the price; was just hoping you'd lean away from the dark side.

YES ITS DUSTY! Gonna clean it up this weekend. Just wanted to get the dang thing back together after rebuilding the cooling loop. Works A LOT better now. Especially now that I got a fill port and a drain port.
lol that is one nasty looking case. I've never been one for aesthetics but as I said this new card forced me to change my ways.

Comparison of two cards lined up.



The situation that made me take everything apart and route my cables correctly.



Final result.


With this, to the right I had to remove a HD bay. Luckily it wasn't being used and was easy to remove. There was a fan in front of the PSU that I moved up to blow directly onto the card and also help push air in the correct direction through the case.

The before pic after unplugging cables, preparing to remove Vega. The HDD bay can be seen to the right. clicky.
