    +1 I was going to post this question soon. This is really starting to drag now. I have a feeling that the duff mobo has kinda put everything on the back burner, unfortunately.

    Ok ok man keep ya bitchin down, guess what uncle NdMk2o1o is doing tonight?? :toast:

    Freedom you're a star, as is all who have contributed to the build. And a special thanks to Sasqui who was going to donate an mobo but we got a local one, so he donated $50. Well being as this monster has 8gb reapers and a q6600 on the awesome P5Q-Pro, I couldn't let the 8400gs sit in there looking rather tiny in comparison to the rest of the parts so I managed to scoop a nice Asus Batman AA edition GTS 250, so thank you Sasqui.

    Pics to follow, just got the board in and trying to do some cable management though the CM 430 is a bitch to work with, no holes for cable routing and the front audio header is too short and would have to be trailed straight acrossw the board so am leaving the FP out and stuffing it away.
     
    Israar, Sasqui and scaminatrix say thanks.

    Done that ;) it started but didnt post, reset and it asked me to run setup, all taken care of. Oh and the 4x2GB reapers are all recognised in the bios.... bonus. Not had time to install Windows yet, literally started at 9pm tonight and finished up about half an hour ago in between vodka and coke and fag breaks.

    Also been up since 5.30am this morning and travelled down to london and back today, am running on empty lol

    Yeah you don't wanna do this stuff while in that state. It would be all too easy to make a mistake and break something (qubit says from experience :cry: ).

    Do it tomorrow buddy, no rush! :toast:

    And thanks for the update and pics.

    I don't have a confidence problem, I just rather watch what I say in my broad northern accent and to who lol ;) I can somewhat take care of myself but that also involves being smart and not broadcasting that I am a "foreigner" lol

    A work colleague was in London a couple weeks ago for a conference and after a few beers proceeded to the tube on his own, anyway a couple of guys approached him and was all like "alright mate, where you going" and shit, his 1st mistake was speaking to them and saying he is going to the tube lol, then they were like "we're going there too we'll walk with you" that was his 2nd mistake, his 3rd and most fatal mistake was to follow them down a "shortcut" lmao needless to say he was an iPhone 4, wallet and watch lighter when they left him........

    Maybe we should take this into the UK clubhouse as it's going off topic :rolleyes:

    OK, back on topic... *nice* looking rig - the MB I was going to donate has the EXACT OCZ Vendetta Cooler on it. Creepy on a level or two.

    It's been so long since I read up on this thread, where is the rig going when it's done? Make MK Proud!

    Hey guys and gals! :)

    Loving what you've done so far NdMk2o1o, especially the cable management, given what you've done I'd personally say you've done a good job of it, since everything is easily accessible and nothing seems to look like it would be troublesome to do a quick-swap/change in the future if ever needing any :)

    I'm really greatful for the motherboard and donations gone towards the helping of this project for MK too! I'm highly positive this donation will do MK proud, not just that but the recipients will also greatful, I'm just really eager now to see how the recipients emotions and reactions are and some more shots of the project in fully working order, kudos NdMk2o1o!

    Again, I can't thank everyone enough for the help, support and good gestures done for this project, you all really are the most wonderful people on earth!

    --Lee

    Well not much to report as you see the rig is all done, installed Win7 on it last week and everything seems to run as it should, the only thing left to do is to drop it off, been bogged down with work and being poor lately so hoping to go up in a week or 2 and will get some pics/video of the handover. Thanks for your patience everyone and more importantly for your generousity to all who have donated.

    Now, the question is, do I OC the Q6600 or not? I think it wouldn't be a fitting tribute unless I did.

    Also I am so pleased with how well the components all compliment each other, has a sick black theme going on, a rig I would be proud of if it was my own :toast:

    This is TPU :nutkick:

    Also, please take pics of it for us.
