    Case came with an 8-pin, braided in black, extension. I already had the 24-pin one from Crysis Gamer;) I would have just thought Corsair would make it easy and add that little bit more.

    Thats cause the picture isn't focusing on the base. The fin dimples and the large hole was more my aim for this image.

    Not so sexy, but it is close up.

    story behind it... Chipsets were running hot so I had to pull the 3piece cooler from the X38A Foxconn. Being "glued" on it took some force at the expense of a few surface mount "thingys".

    [​IMG]

    So I got out the soldering iron and made a real mess of things, but the board seems to boot so far, I just need to see what happens from here on out. the little glob on the right between the two "thingys" got removed once I saw this pic;)

    Thise little "thingys" appear to be capacitors (hence the "C" before the number). Did you freeze the board first before you removed the heatsink?

    I prefer heating it up, but freezing is an excellent method too.

    Not too sure if its just due to being new or a bit cleaner power, but it seems I can run my VGAs higher 24/7 and I was able to drop the CPU volts for the same OC. Being fully modular, I think it took me like 10 minutes to put the thing in.

    Kudos to those who can name the hardware in the pic!

    Looking at my system specs is cheating!

    BTW, this color is called Lemon Chiffon ROFL
