    Gotcha! Repost when in the rig. Not that it will be matching anything since your heatsink and gfx cards conceal most of the mobo's color scheme.

    Got a ASUS SATA DVD-RW/CD-RW Lightscribe drive today for $4.99 at my local thrift store.

    Just saved myself the hassle of having to order one off newegg. Yes, it works fine. :D

    [​IMG]

    Also changed a few things around inside the case, mostly just cable management. I'll have to redo it again soon in the near future. When my new fans arrive.

    I've been meaning to clean it up, I've been busy.

    The drive isn't as awesome as a find I found on Monday thou. Found one of the newer Logitech G15's for $3.99. My brother bought it. :D

    I love my local thrift store. I really do.

    sometimes local shops can give you sweet deals, i also grabbed my Evga E-Geforce 8800gts there, for 50 euro,used,but like new, which i consider cheap, regarding the fact, most internet shops here have them for 100+,still;)

    Yeah, I would think that too, except "my local thrift store" is Goodwill. A major non-profit chain.

    They just don't care, the trick is, to get there as soon as they open, after they stock the shelves with new stuff.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    Don't have to buy a new cpu :D

    Decided to retry the thing today and its working :D

    The only thing different is time, and also I accidentally launched the processor across the room this morning. Must of hit it just in the right spot or something crazy XD

    Also got my 5770 installed.

    Now I just need to tidy my rig up.
     
    shevanel says thanks.

    The processor was sitting on the side in like a flat tube of cardboard, you know for storage, but I picked it up and turned too quickly the processor went flying out the tube like a bullet and hit my coffee mug!
