    Looks so much better with the new fans.

    Are you going to bother painting the bits you missed?

    lol @ glowy stuff!:laugh:

    All the lights and what not are not just for eye candy, they also serve a purpose. Like the Voltimeter on the NB changes with the rising and lowering of volts to what ever I choose to monitor. I use it to tell me my CPU PLL at the moment. The 2 round "lights" at the bottome left of the mobo are my On/Off and reset switches/buttons. If you want to learn more about the motherboard go Here It is the ASUS Maximus II Formula P45 board.:rockout: It is the nicest board I have ever owned in my life.:D

    Thank you for your comments :toast:



    Yea, i think it looks alot better myself. Im not sure, the only thing I really missed was the top underside, and who is ever going to see that any ways? So, if I do decide to... it wont be any time soon. I need to crack down on getting some hours in so we can take our vacation this summer. I am supposed to be @ the ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL in Miami this weekend, but we have had some crazy shit happen these last 2 weeks, so I ended up selling our tickets to a couple that we work with for the same price I paid for them. $700= 2 VIP Passes for $350 a pop! Im just glad I got my money back at least!

    Sorry to hear about the festival tickets dude, nothing like being screwed out of going to one.

    Still, at least you have a freaking tasty rig to make you smile. ;)

    I've had the antec 900 for a year or so.

    I love the price/air flow but it has such terrible cable management, my case looks like medusa's head.

    The cable management is good, its only bad due to the person doing the wiring!:eek:


    I did my wiring during the build process, and part of the reason its nice.. is the way the PSU is mounted.:D

    Rig Update!

    OK First off, my white cold cathode went out on me along with 4gb of my RAM all in the same day! :eek::shadedshu:wtf:

    So I sent back the RAM for a full refund. So I now have another :respect:8GB of Corsair DOMINATORS 1066 on the way!!:rockout: (should be here next Tuesday or Wednesday!) And I replaced the non-working 15 inch white cold cathode with dual red CC's.:rockout:

    I will put up some more pictures when the new goods arrive next week!:rockout::pimp:

    Looks great. Now all you need to do is go to i7 and get a bloodrage and some of the red corsair dominators.

    Lots of 900 haters in this thread though. I love mine and I have one of the first version. Cut my own cable holes and made a nice clean set-up. Definitely better now with the latest version.

    I wanted to go to the i7 and the ASUS Rampage board. But I got this Maximus II Formula board and the Q9550 for my birthday a few weeks ago. There was no sense in buying the stuff for an i7 rig, when I already have a nice mobo and CPU pretty much for free! Im all about saving the cash ;)

    Absolutely amazing install there and the paint job is to die for....flawless....I just wish you had taken the time to cut out some holes for cable management before painting the case...but otherwise its absolutely superb....cheers.,
