Behold the ultimate cable management.
Main rig is back out of the case
Yes, I'm using a bedstand. Story behind this is that I installed my new E8400 on this board, which I had to remove from my Silverstone case (you can see the cable mess of it)... and that whole stuff will move into a Cosmos S (not 100% sure). By the way, thats your PSU there Paulieg
Notice how the hardware is clustered with fans:
Those two 120mm fans do a good job on keeping NB and MOSFET heatsinks cool. Or at least you can touch the heatsinks now without grilling your finger.
Well my pc is nearly done now (for the moment) I only have to buy a fan speed controller so i can use the switches for some modding i have in mind.
I want to mod it so i can place it on the inside of the case. drill four holes, dismount the switches that control the fan speed from the pins. Then stick the pins threw the case and put the switches back on the pins. Should work. Untill then a few updated pics.
orange fluid X amazing case paint job = Teh SEX. Absolutely love your case tech, must say im damn jealous.
Nice one mate!!! And you said my case was clean... cccc
Funny enough i have the same monitor, mousepad and a mouse (had, until two days ago - altho' mine was Diamondback Plasma Limited Edition... lol got it for 15$ on Woot.com and sold it two days ago for 41$ )...
Just ordered Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave... hope its good
edit: i lied... my monitor is 22", just noticed yours is 26".... great!
I was thinking to get a second HD 4870 1Gb when prices drop a bit. But i am kinda chicken about my psu. After reading some reviews, one says it can be done others recommend a 700w psu.
Yeah i really like your case man. Simple design but really nice.
Yeah it's kinda orange now but i ordered another dye bomb so it should become more red.
Also i ordered a uv case led so the red can pop a bit more.
that looks sweet bro
Well I am officially jealous now... You have an amazing rig.
I agree, looks amazing.
I dunno man... Corsair PSU's are really good... i could see your 620W running a CF rig that would need a 700-750W PSU from some other manufacturers. But on the safe side i'd say ~850W should be sufficent, although some pps say 1000W should about do it...
P.S. i bought some rubber screws for my fans, and plan on installing them tommorow, and maybe just maybe take out the HDD bay, and mount my HDD in 5,25" area together with a fan... we'll see how that goes. Getting up at 0700 hours and starting on my project. Reorganize my cables too, outside and inside of my case...
I'm up for some major cabling tommora' , and then a photoshoot using days light, tripod, DSLR... hope it turns out as i expect otherwise i'll be :shadedshu
Dunno about you guys, but when i change something in my case and around (eg. a new card or a new table) i need a bit of time until i get my mind sorted out on what to do and where...
I also have those rubber screw things. I wish i bought them before cause they are great. Just don't pull to hard on them.
Btw Thrackan. i you need a good watercooling shop look at http://aquatuning.de/. They also sell here but i ordered from the German site because they have more and a a bit cheaper. Shipping is the same i believe.
i can tell you.... they are a pain in the arse to mount... i did two of my fans the other day just to see how it goes, and one screw snapped... argh i cursed the manufacturer (Xilence) for 30 mins cuz of that!!!
Yeah me to. The first one snapped because i pulled to hard.
I kinda like them.
Lol "kinda" is a key word there
Did a little more cable management when I got my new CPU, MOBO, and HS.
I replaced the fan on the S1284 with one that pushes more air and can be controlled with my fan controller.
I can't see nothin' mate... Seriously, put that camera on some books if you don't own a tripod. And lowering the photo resolution to 1024x788 would help...
Like the green tho..
Well ok, does this look better?
It's better... IMO the pics are too big, but definately sharper... Now just to manage them cables, and it will be great...
What did you do your 1284? Mine's shiney at the top..
I already did manage the cables, that's about the best I can do without getting crazy a drilling holes in my case, which I really don't want to do.
I didn't do anything to it, I just turned the flash to a different setting.
Look at mine then yours, they look totally different..
I'm telling you the flash is at a different setting, if you want I can take another picture of it but it will probably blind you lol.
I'm liking the green you got going on there, I was thinking about getting some green fans to change from blue every now and then. But you should resize your pics, those pics will eat away at people's bandwidth.
