    If he is going to keep that one for a bit, he should pick this up (i get mine at Autozone, but lowes or home depot should have) and wrap the wires in it and the really wide areas he can use electrical tape, does a world of difference :rockout:

    If you do a better job than the one in this pic, it looks great. I'll try to post one of my pics:

    thats fan is an intake because i was tiered when i put in, and lazy after :p I do intend to get a new psu but i have no money left, and i no bla bla psu most important part, bla bla, buy it first bla bla but hey. and on the cm point i may take up that idead CP i have managed to hide most wires except the ide and power for the dvd drive. Purley coz when ive finished re-installing everything (fresh os) ill be removing it. Oh and the 24pin but thats coz theres no where to put it, no hole in the mobo tray.

    oh and i got that ram coz i heard it was good for stabability rather then overclocks coz this board is meant to be very picky with ram

    Whatever you want to tell yourself dude, but if that cheap PSU goes it could take out your entire rig.

    It's a Zalman fan mate 2

    It's a fan controller.

    Last I checked you can get a decent cooler master PSU for around $30-50 USD. Depending on what your wattage needs are.

    Heh, I'm "unemployed" and yet I still manage not to skimp on my stuff. You just have to spend money wisely, that's all.

    Yeah, they are great for stability, my buddy has been running a set for a few years already no hiccups.

    is that good or bad? :confused:

    Like rad ed said, it's a fan controller.

    Honestly the first one was the best, the second and third were mediocre.

    I like action/comedies/horror. I mean really I may love the movie, but I'm discouraged by the trailers, like people doing ducking bullets and shit like that.

    Ah, so it's more of a prejudicial thing. I'm ok with that :D If you ever decide to watch it, just watch part 1. 2 and 3 don't even belong anywhere near part 1.

    But sentinels are like giant fucking techno squid, pretty well designed.

    Agreed.

    Though the second was fairly decent imo.
