Case came in.. even more shipping charges COD lmao. Guess I'll stick to canada only ordering from now on. Anyhow the thing is HUGE. I expected a big case but man.. lol The photos are huge so I'm just going to link em, sorry to anyone who has 56k. I can't resize them on this pc its crap and I don't have the time to go installing new stuff lol.
Here's the gear.
I've run into a quick snag concerning the power LED, see bottom for details maybe you can help. So I havent booted it up yet. Another thing, turns out i still need my sata dvd burner in my old setup so I can burn off some crap to transfer, unless I can figure out how to connect the two Directly (no router) with decent transfer speeds. bout 100 gigs worth of stuff to xfer. Any ideas?
So cable managment is out the window right now. IDE optical drive causing problems, also forced me to put the ultra in the top PCI-Ex16 slot because it blocked the IDE slot on MOBO. Luckily right now I only need 2 sata connections lol. SO its messy as **** and will be for a couple weeks, sicne I went over budget ordering my sound card hahaha.
One thing I will note, is theres no hope of stuffing cables behind mobo tray. theres nearly no space between removable back panel and the tray. So thats a bit lame. Don't know how much I like the bottom mounted PSU either, the 8 pin 12V power connector cant properly reach without sitting in front of the GPU. That might change when I get my SATA Optical and get rid of some cable mess.
Only problem so far. is this darned power LED.
someone tell me whats goin on? In short the connectors dont match. >.>
Can I just connect one of the prongs? or did the case come with the wrong wire? >.>
Will the PC boot without the LED? I dont see why it wouldnt but you never know I guess.
link to other post.
Finally building. PLED problem? help XD
Ill post more pics when I get the sound card, network card, sata optical installed, have the cables all tidy and the watercooling in.
yeah i've got the stock HSF on there, itll have to do till WC i'm broke lmao.
and MAN fitting that thing on sucked.. Those push down fasteners suck. I'll take a good old Screw and Screwdriver any day of the week. lmao.
