    my problem is that i complicate things often, when i mod cases, and even more badly, when i have to built it from stock:laugh:
    such an easy idea as turning the tray, or even using a prebuilt tray, for a mod, never crossed my mind, until i saw them here! the GFX retention for my first benchcase, i built from a massive chunk of alumium bars, whereas a simple strip of it, would have been enough!:laugh:

    This is what the i7 860 I finished building looks like- wish I had the black or blue ripjaws, but the price was unbeatable :D And that's the best the CM can get without modifications to the case and wires :ohwell:

    Is that a 2X2GB kit? If so would you want to trade them for my blue ones? Same specs as yours. This is at 1.6v I believe. Which is default and lowest voltage on my board. PM me from here if interested.

    Little birdy dropped by and left me an 875K and Maximus Formula III this morning. 4020MHz out of the box with everything but CPU voltage left on auto. Voltage set itself to 1.38, way too high, I dropped it to 1.25 and will be tweaking over the weekend.

    I has an angry. Got the NZXT Gamma I ordered in the mail, great case, huge bang for the buck. I had thought of this crappy PSU's lines being a problem but I couldn't really check it in any way. So, I put it in there and..

    So, I'm going to have to buy a PSU. I have all weekend to look, since it'll be shipped out Monday whether I purchase it today or Sunday night. I know I could just get a $10 24-pin extension, but I'd rather just upgrade to something better.

    Indeed it is. Have you or anyone else seen a good deal on a solid, used 400W-600W modular or regular unit for sale on here? I'd rather get one new, but I don't want to spend more than like $50 shipped for one.

    That was what I was looking into getting, actually before knowing that this one wouldn't have long enough cables. Seems like a great little unit, it has a lot of connections that won't be used but I'd take too many over not enough anyday.

    Looks pretty good for the price, but I think I'd rather pay $20 more for Corsair quality. Plus, a black unit would look a lot better with the black interior than a grey unit.

    Hey, I don't blame you at all. I had that 400W in this rig up until today, I just got my new Corsair HX520W Modular installed not more than two hours ago. :laugh:

    And where has your 400W gone? Are you putting it up for sale? The HX520W actually sounds perfect for me, but I can't find hardly any sites that sell them.

    Internally the 800D has the Raven beat. They are roughly the same dimmensions.
