Can you post an open pic!?
Are you using a pair of bungee cables there?
Sure, bad angles thou - have a hard time getting a better one since the desk is on small side
Have also re-installed the third HDD-cage since i wanted to have another two drives in, hence the 120mm fan on the right that wasnt there on the first pic.
There is also some frosting added to the window (have to redo that, do look like crap, and i as writing this noted that the "work-light" withe led strip not only was left on, but also have fallen slighty of its cable-hook on the far right of the window ).
Actually they are 18 AWG speaker wire, double half hitch knot with a zip tie around the end. Holds the card very level, otherwise it sags horrendously.
Posted this in the memory subforum but fast replies here:
My 2x8 HyperX Black Memory performs better in slots 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2. Tested this many times in benchmarks to confirm. Its a few % better consistently. Should I keep using 3 and 4 even though manual says 1 and 2? Gigabyte calls the two matched channels 1 + 2 and 3 + 4. Its not like I put the ram side by side like a noob, its staggered ...
Looks awesome! My kinda aesthetic!
I don't see very many mouse mods these days, nice work!
This was the lovely PC i had.. It went through a lot! (see gpu cable)
and hell of a lot of ocing!
I Also painted the inside of the case (NZXT Hush) i got bored with the grey color... and the result!
A little dirt of course!.
I upgraded now.. had this running for a week without a case!
And the PC ATM.. Nothing special.. But i really love this!
Here is my Silverstone SG10B
Nice, that a 290x?
Back to mATX again for now until i get the watercooling bug again.
What's this i just got in the mail?
Finally got meself a better cooler
This is before... (Don't mind the dusty exhaust, i took care of that when moving it to the back of the case)
Old VS New!
The Ashura installed:
With this thing my FX-6200 runs 30 (!!!) degrees Celsius cooler . Just need to MacGyver one more front intake in there for more lovin'.
THIS happened. It appears the size specification did not count the little rivets on the top, and now my case won't close. That's going to suck with pets. Best part is it would have closed if those rivets weren't there
I know this is a bit ghetto, but since it is so close, maybe you can add a bit of a bump to the side panel in that area with a knee or something. May not look the best, but it should give you the few mm's of room needed to get the panel back on.
Also, to follow the thread....
New memory testing rig:
ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition w/ 4960X, Corsair 4x4 GB 2666 C10, MSI GTX780 GAMING.
I tried, but the Antec Gaming One has a wierd shape in the side panel that makes it impossible to bend it without screwing up the panel. (took a lot of crap to get it kinda sraight again ) And no, it still doesn't fit. Because of this shape only the top 2 rivets are in the way though, i might drill some holes in the panel for them, although all of this means i won't be modding in a window anytime soon...
Just ordered a few phobya rad grills to put on my Cosmos. I want to see if I can fit a 360 rad grill on the lower portion (one of the 120mm parts under the power supply) and a 360 rad grill on top, a 240mm rad grill on the drive cage facing the pull out HDD cages. Gonna put up pics when I start cutting the metal. I don't plan to water cool any time soon, but I want better airflow and more options. The grills will be silver with a hex pattern so it should look close to oem. Hopefully I'll be able to fit two 120mmx38mm fans at the bottom of the case as intake (with filters) and won't have to have the power supply sit back a bit. This should greatly increase cooling for my GPU.
I also have to refinish my H100, CLU reacted to the bare copper and formed some glob of crud that I can't get off so I plan to lap the copper and I'll probably run that instead of the phanteks with four 38mm thick fans.
now im tempted to switch the macho for a Ashura ...
or do a windows moding with a extruded plexi, like my GR one has
a bit blurry but as you can see the plexi is not flat. (i know the GR one is not as small as the antec one and i have near 2cm from the macho to the side panel and 3.5cm if i count the plexi)
ofc this is not a Macho ... its a H70 but ... ahhh whatever
You could do as i did with my window - put it on the outside. (pics on this and the page before)
I did this hence having pets, i have enought airflow in to my case that the overpressure prevents anything from coming in there anyhow
But how am i supposed to get a plexi panel like that? does it have to be custom made? ionno, i don't feel like pulling out the jackpot since i still have an 8350 to save up for.
A heat-gun is your best friend when it comes to plaxi/acrylic (unless you like to custom order).
I buy thick plexi panels off of ebay. It can be cheap there.
You finally got a cpu for that Black Edition motherboard
So I brought back an R9 290 (non-X) from Hong Kong, only to discover it black-screens on BF4. Can't play 10 seconds straight without black-screen quit-to-desktop (which don't force a reboot). Fuck.
Wow that really sucks
Still a bit work in progress (backside wiring doh) on my main pc. Next get a PSU and case for my 4770k test rig... I am thinking AX760i and 750D.
Actually, I got a few :
Working on binning right now, well, that's where I am at, CPU binning. still need to pop in the third chip.
