I have the same case I use as a Server / HTPC now. Didn't know if anyone would still have this nVidia edition lying around :)

Mobo's giving me grief, looks like it's panning on dying. So out with the old and in with the new. Jumped back to team Green after a long hiatus. Last AMD build I did was still socket A.

Welcome to team Red, again! I'm just assuming you went with the CL14 Vengeance sticks?

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstance I didn't have the funds like I was hoping for a new build, but the old folks and wife chipped in for $100 to Micro Center. I like how the case for my HTPC/Plex computer keeps things a lot cooler so I found myself picking up the same tower for my rig.

About 4 years ago I spent a good chunk of time sanding and painting a case. I had it for 1 main reason, I had always been using SLI builds and I liked the extra space for cooling in full towers. I found a Fractal Design Arc XL calling my name. I liked it, but black and white is boring. Hours of sanding and painting resulted in this guy (as you can see, she's a bit dusty, I hadn't wiped down the outside for a while....plus is doesn't help the kids have to constantly touch it.....)

I spent a good hour pulling parts out of this tower, cleaning them off good and completely cleaning the tower (inside and outside). Then I finally unboxed my new case.
20181020_183906.jpg


A lot smaller, but it's large enough to house my 13" 980Ti AMP! Omega. Here are a couple of shots of the inside pre-installation.

(Side shot - you can see all the parts in the background that are going inside)

The MB tray comes out to allow easy access to the PSU and hard drive cage. I had to install the HDDs (1 SSD and 2 HDDs) along with the Blu-Ray drive first, then run all power cables and SATA cables for them. I had to then add a power cable for the GPU and an extra one for H100i (don't forget the obvious 24pin and 8pin for the CPU & MB). Once those were all in place and all cables pulled out in the direction they needed to I moved to the trickiest part of the build.

With the Corsair H100i on the front with two fans, I had to wiggle/jiggle and use just a little force to maneuver it into position after I installed the MB and GPU. I couldn't get the GPU installed with the radiator screwed into place. It took a few minutes to get everything into place and then screwed in. I also added a 200mm fan to the top of the case. The case consists of 3 fans being in use. 2 - 120mm fans on the radiator and the 1 - 200mm fan on top. The system runs whisper quiet. My CPU runs a few degrees cooler with the current OC. It was flirting with just about 90C under stress testing. Right now it tops out around 85C. As for the GPU, she usually ran around 65C during most gaming sessions, now she doesn't break 50C (at least this is the highest I've seen the temps reach for now).

Here are two pics to show the interior and one gives a closer look at how the GPU is resting against the radiator.

I just thought I'd share my new case here. So far, things run great. My system specs will list what's in this build, if you're curious at all.

The voltage likes to wander off a bit on this board, we'll see if the updated bios fixes it.

Finally got the GPU waterblock. If you wonder where's the pump/reservoir, it's behind the motherboard tray. Corsair 740 Air has that dual-chamber design.




edit: and it kicks fine with the original backplate! :)

Does this qualify for this thread?



What's going on here is I'm taking the 24 pin off a "donor" crappy power supply to replace my Corsair CX600w's infamous "burned up" 24 pin connector. Note the two cut +12v leads. That's what the hacked up 6 pin connector there is for. I'm splicing those wires together again, hopefully one last time, before I put them in the new connector. That unit seems to use thin gauge wires for that 24 pin connector indeed... I think my very budget evga 500w uses thicker gauge wires... though they seem about the same as the crappy donor PSU.

Those are bent staples sticking out the end of that 6 pin connector. The hammer is there to hammer them all the way down in the connector, so I can pull the wire out. In lieu of having the proper tool for the job, this works.

I'd have to say that one of the worst experiences I've had with working on a computer is re-sleeving PSU cables. I had a proper tool.....damn POS it was. Worked maybe half the time before it ended up breaking. I resorted to pretty much the same method - a couple of heavy duty staples and a bit of hammering them down tended to work better, in my opinion.

I've finally managed to find some more 1U rails so I'll be using those on Saturday to try and get them all setup and sorted out :) I've got some cable tidy trays as well so I'm hoping to install those too..

I do however need to get my X99 rig in a case.. I have the Thermaltake X9 sat doing nothing, so it would be nice to make the most of that :) Would have liked to paint/spray the case white just to make it a little different...

Think it might be time to get it a little more sorted....

What a mess. The 24 pin connector from the "donor" power supply came out "easily" enough, but not the one on the Corsair unit... I wound up just cutting all the wires off. Now I have to decide between hacking the wires on the other power supply, and splicing literally every wire, or getting some pins and finding a crimping tool somewhere and wind up paying the same for that as I would a new power supply... :banghead:

You should PM @Meatloaf and see if he can give you a good deal on a new PSU.
