Not yet.... still at work right now, for anoter few minutes.... (at that point, I will have worked 29 hours out of the past 48, and gotten about 8ish hours of sleep, and there is 4-5 hours drive time factored in there).... Been CRAZY busy, but HOPING to get assembly underway Wednesday 12/26.... Christmas (12/25 for those that don't celebrate it) is a day that I will be spending the morning at my parents, and then ALL DAY with family. I have a large family, and love it. We get together alot and it is cool to hang out with them. Only downside is that I got a replacement laptop keyboard for a friend in the mail yesterday, and I am slated to swap that out for her Wednesday... I am really going to work to get this done though... the anticipation is KILLING me... I am terrible with the waiting game, and just want to jump on something and get it done.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Got the rig (sort of) put together today... still have the IDE HDD in it, need to load WinXP64 onto one of the SATA drives, and SOMEHOW overlooked the fact that I didn't put the optical drive in.... I took a bunch of pics, but have to re-size them, then will post them up. I am not at home right now though, so it will be later on.

Ok, there are still a FEW things left to do....... they would be:

1. Install WinXP64 on one of the SATA drives
2. Remove IDE HDD & cable
3. Paint the GPU rear shield to match case (not sure how I managed to miss it, lol)
4. Get extension cables for the Power& reset switch. They are currently too short to route behind the motherboard.

frikkin sweet


hey the pwr/reset wires should just be 2 conductors each, right?
easy enough to route the length you have behind mobo, till it just passes behind, then maybe 2", cut the wires and splice in a longer (4 conductor or seperate 2 conductor) piece. then put the ends that attach to the mobo on, routing them thru the bottom of the tray. like .08 cents in parts.
