    I did toss that up but as you can see the GPUs take up roughly 190*170*360mm of space each. I might make a quick mock up of them though in a orientation with a horizontal mobo. Make a more cube like case estimate dimensions of 400mm cubed would have 4*180 fans on the front and 2/3 on the rear depending on how GPU and mobo sit.

    Were I am at currently, dimensions are ~300*590*580mm (w*d*h) 180mm fans front and rear.

    Building my own PC Case

    I am looking to go out the bottom or the other thought is go slightly wider so that io slot fits beside the fans. Wider might be the go as it'll give me the extra clearance if I modify the GPU cooling and will give me space on the front of the case too for power/reset and USB ports. Also still deciding if I put DVD/Blu ray drives in this PC because it's been about 5 years since I used one on my main rig. The HTPC and laptop use DVDs still but not this.

    Building my own PC Case

    Been away from here for a while but am in the mood to change up my PC Case from my old Coolermaster Elite 430 So in the planning stages at the moment for a new case. Looking to see if anyone has any suggestions or experience building with aluminium t bar. Housing my z68 mobo, i5 2500k, 2x GTX 690s and a Silverstone 750watt psu. Current objectives: - lots of airflow, unobstructed - minimal noise - looks good - no lights - built strong Ways I plan to tackle all that. Aluminium t bar is very strong to begin with am looking to use black anodised 20x20mm t bar with 6mm slots. Haven't found any black hardware for joining so I'll need to paint that. This will make up all the frame work outer edges as well as some internal work. Buy/cut a mobo tray out of another case to mount mobo. Use HDD/SSD cages to mount drives. Make the walls out of 6mm marine ply, fits in the t slot and comes up nice when sealed. Mount fans and filters to the frame drawing in the front and out the back. Aiming to go triple 180/200mm fans front and back and mount everything in-between, so lots of crossflow. The PSU will be mounted so it draws and vents its own air separately to the rest of the case. Now 180mm fans can run rather quiet with plenty of airflow but GPU fans cannot. Next bit that I am tossing up still is using CPU air coolers and copper heatsyncs to cool the GTX 690s Now I really need input here from anyone that has tried this. The plan is to strip the stock cooler off stick copper heatsyncs with thermal pads to all the vrm etc and put serious CPU air coolers on the dies. Naturally the GPU width will drastically increase and this will be tackled by vertically mounting the two GPUs and using ribbon cable to connect them to the mobo. If I go this path one of the sidewalls will become Plexi because ain't no way I am making massive aircooled bohemoths and not showing them off. Anyway any input welcome SketchUp plans and other diagrams to come tomorrow

    I've had the *new* 3ds xl for a while now and it is so much better than the old 3ds the 3d follows your head so very well it's actually fun to use and not a pain like the old 3ds. Haven't used the c-stick or extra bumper buttons yet.

    What I did today .......

    Nearly gave myself a heart attack.... Had to change the battery in my phone but lets start off with I bought the battery two weeks ago from Singapore for $20 and it arrived two days ago well ahead of when I expected or even they said it would arrive especially with Christmas post. Also it came with more trim removal tools and extras like a capacitive pen, than they said it would. Back on topic and my stress related heart attack, I have a xperia zl and the battery is built in and we'll glued in too. Have to remove two screws from the back then pry the back off destroying a gasket and splash resistance then it's 8 or so ribbon cables 6 screws the camera and speaker module then the motherboard out. Now thw battery can be seen and it requires heating to soften the glue so you can carefully pry it out of the phone. Thankfully 20-30 mins later I had a working phone. For more see this lovely guide I am thankful for https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&ei=eBubVJKgOI3X8gWYlYHgDw&url=https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Sony%2BXperia%2BZL%2BBattery%2BReplacement/28802&ved=0CC0QFjAA&usg=AFQjCNFkBaAz7setIGdGGtDpUXlJPkp53A&sig2=6xYLdDnEozbcnBnKho3zFQ

    Need advice on sound option

    Well if the op has the card still and isn't going to keep it in his current system there is no reason he can't or shouldn't use it. As Wev pointed out the soundcard brings other things other than purely sound quality and that is often in the form of the software and what becomes available to you to do with your audio.
