Default My rig is complete, pics at last!

Well I finally took my time to upload the pictures out of my parent's camera so here it is my PC named: "Orihime".






Not the best wire management but at least I manage to get the wires/cables out of the important hardware airflow.








From right to left: Raptor 150GB, WD 750GB 16MB, & WD 320GB 16MB.



Here is a better view of the whole case on the inside.



Yes those are some white "tape" on the back of one of the slot, since those are not "re mountable" I just made a "quick fix" for now, :laughing: .



My New monitor Samsung 226BW.

Agreed with AP4LIFETN. It should be mounted the other way, so the fan blows the hot air towards the rear exhaust.

That ide cable looks gross and as previously stated your artic cooling heatsink is mounting pointing the wrong direction.

I know that cable is not only gross but is also very old :laughing: is for the DVD + RW drive.

I need to change the Artic cooling heatsink even if the fan that is face to face with him is "exhausting" air?

The heatsink blows air from the side with the fan, through the fins and and out of the heatsink.

With the rear exhaust fan blowing air out the back your disrupting the flow of air and losing a significant amount of performance.

Happened with my tuniq. Faced it the other way, and temps went down at least 10C.
