XD lol max 10 images per post. continued:
Starting to shape up.. ^^:
Allll in place:
Yes thats a different mobo lol. Stupid thing came halfway through, had to tear out the old one and put that in. MAN what a pain haha
I got the TC fan shroud as well but theres No room at all in there. in fact the fans themselves barely fit as it was. what a nightmare screwign them in was haha.
Nother shot, finished-ish.
power on. no idea how to turn flash off on this camera >.> oh well.
In all her glory. No idea how this one got small, was tryign to figure out flash. hahaha
Coretemp says 31-35C idle, bios said 27 last time i looked. Theres still some air in the lines I gotta bleed out. MRI tomorrow and im pretty much out of time so it'll have to wait. Even 35 is a nice drop from 50. I just put on some fresh mx-2 as well, so lets see if it goes down any more after it sets. After a set I'll post temps and crap when I start overclocking next weekend. This X38 DQ6 is sweet as opposed to the p5k deluxe. No problems at all.
At one point during this fiasco I thought I was leaking everywhere. Was like OH crap!!!!!!...
.. then realised i'd only sliced a finger on somethign or other and was bleeding everywhere haha. Was a relief, in an odd way.
Fan controller doesn't work. Fans just stay 100% all the time. it's loud as all ****. No clue whats wrong. a bit irritating.
As for wire managment, this case sucks XD i managed to cut a hole for the main mobo power cable, unfortunately the 8pin cant be routed anywhere else. I tried to cut a hole for it up top but the latch mechanism for the back door goes right over where the top of the mobo sits. So unless I can get an extention cable for it its stuck sitting right there, XD. I should look into that.
As for the other cables I did what I could. I'm using all available power slots the psu has, minus 1. In order to hide those green sleeved fan cables at the top more than they are, i'd have to remove the cpu waterblock. yes its that tight up there. lol
Anyhow it was fun for a while, but trying to cram it into two days was probably a bad idea. lol
