It looks like an angel.
any cable management suggestions
Can you not get the front panel/USB/etc wires up behind/under the MoBo more? Is there no room behind the MoBo tray or sidepanel? If the HSF wires are long enough could you run them up to the top, across the cage then to the controller? I'm assuming there is a controller based on what I see
thx gonna try that
When I head home from college for fall break I'm setting up my parents with a new system (AMD X4 965BE) to replace the C2D I built for them a few years back:
I have a Biostar 880GZ board, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB HDD. I'll be re-using the old case and Corsair VX450w PSU. I have it crunching right now as a stress test
Wrap the sata cable around a long screwdriver
Here's my build from ~2003-4
PSU is fried and a few capacitors on the motherboard have thrown up.
I have the same HP rig, it died a while ago when I was trying to clean the heatsink and the processor came off with it.
Same thing happened to me with a socket 478. The paste was so strong that it came off with the heatsink and broke a cpu pin inside the pin socket. No way to se it then i installed back the cpu and it blowed the board.
If it's a half-way decent system you can recap it for about $10-15. If you don't need it then you can always donate it to a local charity.
I did the exact same thing as you, except I spent $30 buying a new CPU
no more out of you until we get updated pics..... j/k
I really do want images, but feel free to comment at will
If you ever come across a heatsink that refuses to budge, run the IBT for a few minutes and then turn off the PC to try again.
My new toys:
The 620 is fantastic, pretty quiet too. I added a Noctua P12 or F12? -can't remember which one- as a second fan.
The fan on its own is pretty much silent but once you fix it to the radiator it makes quite a bit of noise. It's slightly louder than the N520 I was using. Anyway, part of the reason I switched to WC is because of RAM clearance (planning to get some Vengeances later).
IMO the fan on it is actually quite quiet, even on the radiator. At least compared to my GPU fans, I can't notice it.
Well, yeah, I game with headphones so it's not like it disturbs me either but you can certainly hear the turbulence from the air going through the fins. It's the loudest on my system ATM but not by much.
Man everyones pcs look so nice, I need to do some wire managment on mine.
lol picked one of these up yesterday too. On sale at microcenter to cool my newly acquired 2600k alongside other toys that i recently came up on for dirt cheap. ill take pics in a bit.
That'll be fun for ya [H] I seen inside white boy and damn there's not much room left what with all the goodies you have packed into it
Shitty picture. Hard to keep a phone stable haha. Heres what my system setup looks like now.
My desk isn't as clean as Phenom's, but here's my setup.
(Excuse the crappy photo, need a new camera.)
Lol. I just took a picture of my computer building table that has EVERYTHINg that was on my desk before I took my desk picture haha!
We all have desks like that...
But you don't have your whole kitchen on it!
