"ALIENWARE limited edition v5 5500"

Ok there is no such ALIENWARE case so i decided to make one, first i wanted to keep it as 2000 to 2001 looking as i could, second i wanted it to be as fast as i could make it using a v5 5500agp card.

so i started off with the case, i figured ALIENWARE went all out on there dragon case,aluminum,watercooled, for this i needed 3 cases to begin with(ebay here i come)

next i ordered a etched window, got some new hardware to hold window also. fans where one of the few items i didnt go for the 2001 look, i wanted certain fans and black ones didnt cut it

I have 2 hard drives since mobo has raid function, i tried a couple different drive coolers but they just didnt look right to me so i went with thishttp://img276.echo.cx/my.php?image=bfg0621kp.jpg
i wanted some air on these passive collers so i glued 3 bays together and cut a holehttp://img276.echo.cx/my.php?image=bfg0639qo.jpg

So this is my 3dfx v5 5500agp mod, 2 peltiers, 2 v3 2000agp heatsinks, 4 vsa 100 fans, peltiers were wired to molex and fans power leds combined to use there normal power output off board, this card ran the 2001se test at o/ced to 200 with gforce copper coolers so i hope for at least that still, without ram upgrade i dont think it can go any fasterhttp://img289.echo.cx/my.php?image=bfg0592de.jpg

BFG, in case you haven't noticed yet; those [URL=] tags don't work here. Unfortunately this forum has very limited capabilities.

it's fixed, but it would be a even better idea if u change them to [img] so that the images will show when we open the thread...
BTW, a great work!! you just make the 5500 look like 6000 and even more awesome!!

No way a 3DFX collector...just a 3DFX die Hard Player~~

<--- i had it that way and only i was able to see them, i used the [img] that said it was for forums so i have no idea why it didnt work.

more awesome!!

<--- ty, i wanted that stock look but also it had to be able to cool the peltiers, thats why i used 2 fans each heatsink
