Computers aren't so fragile that to touch a part of it would fry it.

How do you think I check to make sure my 8800gt's VRM's are running decently cool? I just shove my hand underneath the card and touch em...

Same goes for my NB cooler, my memory, and my pump.

really? Dang. BIOS says that 1.35v and up is in the danger red zone. I may need to increase it more so i can OC more and have better stablity at those levels eh? I went from 1.2v to 1.3v and i noticed better stability.

Yeah I feel around in the case a lot too. Temp sensors are nice but nothing beats touch.

I did feel around on my heatsinks... but that was some time ago... Anyways heres a new pic or two... Not great, then again, I plan on ordering a Chieftec Bravo full tower case, around the same size, but it doesnt appear as old and allows for slightly better cable managment...

Nope... The game doesn't use the disc when playing.

Unless your talking about installing the game which would probably be true.

updated my wire management skills:











i took out the CD-R/RW and IDE cable since i dont need to use it anymore. I switched the SATA power cables, i moved the Tuniq fan controller to stick out of the water pump hole so the wire isnt squeezed anymore down there by the PSU. I hid the Tuniq fan controller cable behind the mobo. I moved the PCI-E 2 x 6pins cable down to the bottom hole and connected to the HD 3870 x2.

nothing else was changed except for replugging in everything so i can move that Tuniq fan controller, and i found out one of my case wheels broke and i tried super gluing it togther twice but no luck, need better wheels .

so what score do i get now?
