Hey all, I just wanted to report that I got my motherboard in today and hooked up all the wires, hdds, cd/dvd/floppy, switches, sensors, fans, etc. and it WORKS! obviously no cpu, mem, vid. card. but still...she's ALIVE! I need to get my @$$ in gear on wire management, though. Any tips on how to make that bundles of wires bend where you want them to?
Boy does she hum
.... honestly, I don't think 98cfm 120mm exhaust fan is that loud. It's hard to tell what makes the noise, but I imagine having 4 other fans plus the hdds doesn't help. But that's okay, I like the noise as it helps me sleep at night.
Anyways...this is me excited.
