So the card is up and running in the system. I've had exams for school all this week so no time to put the waterblock on. During study times though i did get some benchmarking/overclocking in. I can get it steady at 1175 Core with 1.2V but anything above that and the driver crashes. Not bad considering it comes stock at 863.

Some shots in the case as it stands now.

build looks really awesome,but whats the black stuff on the cpu?

 

 

It was just some leftover thermal paste, dont worry though, it all got cleaned off!

No i just decided i wanted to make it white, and if i ever want to make it black again i can peel all that paint off. :-)

 

 

 

 

Thanks for all the posts guys!

Wait what? The description says you're using a 5970. I'm assuming you're not using that, but the pictures show both a 780 and a Titan. Which are you using?

What camera are you using? 

 

Canon t2i

Original plan was to use my old 5970, ran into some cash and splurged for a gtx780.

The heatkiller block that i wanted has "GTX Titan" printed all over it because they use the same layout.

Wasn't going to wait for someone to come out with a dedicated GTX780 block when they are essentially the same card just mine has less RAM and cuda cores.
