I'm about to go new mobo and ram in my machine
2x4GB DDR 1600 Corsair Vengence LP
Asus Crosshair IV Formula
I'll be reusing my PII X4 965, HDD's, 2x HD5770's (until I can afford to replace them)
New fans, and controller.
+1 internets to you sir for having a steins gate wallpaper
Finally got around to taking some snapshots of my new case from what i can gather from google its a very uncommon lian li witch makes it just all more special to me, has the classic internal layout and a sleek front bezel. its going to look much better when i get the hole cut out for the front power switch - im using a 22mm white ring vandal proof switch also modified the stock power and hdd led up top to white leds for just the HDD activity still a list of things that need to be chopped but need some $$$ first
did some testing on the loudness of the pump after a few mods and i cant even hear it any more when the doors on the case are closed
when i get my 570 sold gonna move to a passive 7750 and buy some parts to finish off the cpu loop for some passive goodness action.
why buy a case with psu on the top?
what psu ? you cant see it, it doesn't make any noise therefore there must not be one
One word: Carpet
You suck all the dust from the carpet right into your psu.
Haha dust also falls from the air man, it does not matter were your power supply is located either way you will be cleaning the dust out of it. Most cases that have bottom mount psu have dust filters on the bottom anyway.
Dust fall everywhere but carpet are more dust catcher than linoleum.
That is true I remember when my basement had carpet the front fan of my case i was always cleaning like 2 times a month now since I had linoleum installed only like 1 time every 2 months
ok i agree .
i dont have see the carpet on the ground but top mount psu with not fanhole on the top on the case for bring fresh air is nonsense for me xd
nice lian li but your pics looks like pics from 80s
I personally don't see anything "nice" about that case ... outdated "classic" layout with bad cable management , i think i would be a lot more happy with something like the great Corsair 500R , actully even my old CM690 II has better internal layout than this Piece of aluminium .
the PSU is a 850 watt seasonic gold the thing barley even gets hot and the fan is rarely ever on since its a hybrid fan - now that im going more power efficient and dumping the high power video card its going to be total overkill and the fan probably wont ever turn on again - - problem solved
How so? not sure i get what you mean
To each their own, some people like more of a challenge when it comes to modding i don't have a lot of time each day to work on it but trust me when i say it will look 100x better when its done.
Guess I'll be the one to say it.
I like it.
I think the reason it seems to everyone else that the cable management is bad is because you have a m-ATX board in a case for a full ATX board, thus making the board look tiny, or conversely the case look huge.
Heres mine. Taken a couple days ago, been trying to get rid if that glue mark on my psu using terpentine and nail polish remover but still no dice. Since this pic was taken ive also just installed a xonar dgx sound card.
Finally got my window panel after shipping from CM took farking forever.
Bugger, looks like my s3 wint copy the tinypic link properly. Heres a link to my thread showing my pc. Near the bottom of the page is pretty much how its looking minus the xonar. Thanks man ill try that eucalyptus oil.
you missed a "/" in the last img tag.
Hahaha sheeit thanks dave!
The air comes usually from the side panel or the front hole.
That's what she said
