My friend has that motherboard and it is a royal pain in the a$$. Did you ever get hard drive lights to work with the integrated SATA? By the looks of that card you didn't even try though. BTW I gave you a 7 for the nice clean sleved cables and supposed quietness.

Nice, but don't you think you went a little overboard with all the stickers?

I got the hard drive activity light to work. The cable is plugged into the SATA card. If you look at the pics, it's the cable that has blue cable sleeving on it plugged into the card. It works fine. Even before I had RAID in the PC the hard drive activity light worked. Thanks for the 7.

Oh no, I haven't even rated your system. I usually just comment on peoples systems not rate them. I'm just one for the clean look myself. You did a good job though. And atleast you put the stickers in a pattern. :)

That's Cool

That's cool. I was going to say I know it's not the best mod but it's not the worst. I really like your mod. Not very often do you see a server CPU in a PC. I wish my case was a little bit cleaner. I really think you did a great job with your PC. Not often do you see cases as clean as yours.

nice

i would add some blue lighting in that case to liven things up though. that corsair memory still makes me want to lose some of my money though.

Actually the pics doesn't give the PC any justice. It lights up blue pretty good. There are LEDS in the PSU and the case fans are pretty bright too. The Corsair RAM is worth the cash.
