    WOWOWOW. And I thought the old man's server had a lot of drives :O From memory he has 2X 4-bay NAS boxes along with a fully loaded CM692 (<- funny coincidence eh?). All filled with 2 or 3 TB drives.


    Why delete stuff when you can buy more HDD's? :p

    Hah, I have every single one of his books except about 10? 77 in total, including some random rare book that cost me a little under $100. One book i dont have is worth about $300 but i dont remember which one that is, I'll get it eventually ;)

    http://www.amazon.co_uk/dp/1587671409/?tag=tec053-21

    If anyone in America can get it cheaper and post it, I'll be glad to pay less than £330 for it :D

    1. Holy Christ Batman, resize the pics!
    2. You need emergency rewiring and cable cleanup services, stat!

    I agree with the resize but the wiring is not too bad.

    I'm more curious about the PCI Slot Blower between those two cards. That thing is massive. Seriously think it's gotta be wreaking havoc on the top card's fan closest to the back of the case. Unless of course that fan is no longer functional.

    actually it's lowered the top cards temps by 3 degrees. and the case has no window, so i dont care about cable management.

    Here are some pics of a recent upgrade

    old setup with my videocard removed

    [​IMG]

    old mobo m4a785-m, next to new one asrock 970 extreme3


    [​IMG]


    took awhile but got the cooler on the mobo, did a pea drop of paste cuz it was looking thin


    [​IMG]

    because of a stupid mistake i have 32bit so only 4gb will do, and the red blends in

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    finally all done, needed to ziptie the cpu 8pin cuz it was touching the gpu heat pipes and some neat cable manegement doesnt hurt

    [​IMG]

    after maybe an hour, all done and booted up nicely

    [​IMG]

    the other side with a random sickleflow green fan

I'll be water cooling this slut soon as I did get some few help on the Swimming in the Ocean thread I made ^_^. gonna upload a better pic once I finished buying all my water cooling parts since it would look better (I think)

    If you can, try to run the 8-pin power cable behind the mobo. If not, you could get an extenasion, or you could just try running the cable below the GPU between the slot and backplate.

    before the upgrade i bought an extension for a 4pin and routed it in the back, but i might do that for the 8pin cuz its looks really noticible
