    My newest acquisition. An AsRock AM1H-ITX and an Athlon 5350 along with a 80mm Fractal Silent Series R2 fan to replace the stock fan. Currently running with my 2*4GB Avexir 2400CL10 kit, but I am going to get another kit for it at some point. Currently running it off a borrowed Asus charger, but going to get a similar power supply for it. Also have an Intel wireless 7260-AC with 2 laptop antennas on it.

    Next plans: SSD, memory, perhaps HDD and case.

    Looks pretty nice! I'm just wondering that what were they thinking on AMD, since AM1 doesn't have the similar retention bracket as AM2-AM3+/FM1-FM2+ :S People sure have old big tower coolers, which could run those AM1 chips passive very nice.

    That's probably because it's large. And to be honest, the stock fan wasn't loud at all. The 80mm is just because I for once want to try to make a silent machine. :p

    It can run without the 24 pin connected?
    Are you going to add a pull fan? I have come to the conclusion that for that kind of case layout, pull fan just adds more turbulence since the rear exhaust is so close. Looks good!

    At least I don't need a pull fan since the exhaust fan is so close to the heatsink :D

    Vario, I'll probably throw in another TY-147 in a month or so. Those fan clips are a nightmare to work with after the heatsink is mounted, though, and that's the only way fans can be installed.

    Indeed. Straight off a 19V DC adaptor. One of the big reasons I bought that particular motherboard.

    I have been wanting to try one of those myself! Cool system, I love that motherboard for the way you have it hooked up (the power adapter).

    I'm having second thoughts about using the test bench i bought now due to the amount of dust it's going to attract and also i would have to run my fans on the outside of the bench because the radiator is so thick.

    I'm just going to connect it up through a pci pass through and keep using the TJ08 for now.

    Now that is a radiator, very nice selection! By the way, how do you like that Lamptron Fan controller, never really used that one as I went for the Akasa FC Trio and have been curious since they look like good controllers.

    little change and also modification in the cables

    doubled the AP121 on the Seidon 120V side 120mm on the PWM chassi fan plug on the board (and as you can see the Gigabyte is at ease in that SG09B)

    a bit weird cable routing for the fan but pretty quiet (thi i use a Coolermaster Blademaster 120mm 600-2400RPM as side fan ...) the little adapter is a SATA to Molex 4p that i use to get rid of the 4x4p molex cable on the back.

    Only thing in Greiver's set disturbs me is the Thermaltake PSU (they aren't not so well quality) but very cool otherwise :toast:

    edit: Maybe my next pic will be with HD5870 CF since I'm getting those little bastards in a trade to few NES games :toast:

    and that Smart SE 530W hold pretty well no matter what i throw at it :D (well the heaviest card i had on it was the GTX580 and the X4 760K OC to 4.6 with a multi heaven 4.0 pass ultimate settings)
    that Smart SE is a DSAII OEM ... Corsair CX and CM use it ... so you can remove the "not so well quality" :D yet much better than corsair: cheaper (oh the non 80+ certification might be for something... ahah) and all flat cables :p ofc the DSAII is a cheap budget oriented PSU yet quite reliable. (i had a Chieftech Nitro+ 650w also and never had a problem with it)

    I buy only 100% Japanese caps PSU's... different thing is what I get free :D I don't trust that Chinese caps filled Delta 350W on my #2 PC so maybe I'll buy a 450W 100%japcap PSU before I put GTX470 to it ;)

    BTW there are my temps on BF4 64player MP

    a totally awesome cooler... if it fits... i replaced a Macho by a H70 (old H80 equivalent) then Macho again, silent and cool no other beats it on the price/perf ratio (nope not even Noctua or the copycat Raijintek and the Ereboss)
    PHOTO_20131111_153458.jpg PHOTO_20131111_153513.jpg PHOTO_20131113_155203.jpg PHOTO_20131113_155238.jpg PHOTO_20131113_155330.jpg

    well they rate it 87% efficiency and also 3yrs warranty ... so i am quite confident and... i might change it later if my financial status goes better :D

    seems they use Teapo cap and Aishi for the main cap, and the soldering quality is not bad at all (expected for a CWT DSAII)

    For some reason when I see the word "ECO" written inside a gaming PC, I feel like everything I was ever taught in physics was just plain wrong.
    I want to see an oil transport liner capsized in the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by 100 million Gallons of polluted water with great white letters "ECO" slapped across the side of the ship in Comic Sans MS.

    Clean build though :D

    Thanks! I did have sleeved extensions for all my cables, but the 24pin broke and I really didn't trust my attempted repair of it. It looked really stupid with just the 24pin not black and blue so I took them all off, and said fuck it.

    Did you put a little fan on top of the graphics cards GPU, or is that just the angle? If so, how much has that helped the temps on the reference card?
