@Chloe Price - you know that you are running your GPU in an x4 lane, right? Move the sound card around! :)

I know, but there's that thing that Ryzen 2000 series and GK110 cards have compatibility problems. It could be fixed via downgrading the PCIE lane to gen2 or gen1, but my bios doesn't have an option for that. Via the chipset's PCIE it works.

So I know that and I can't help that. :D

As far as I know, GK110 cards (780, 780 Ti, Titan, Titan Black, Titan Z) are the only ones which suffer from anything like this. I suppose that we are pretty damn much of a minority these days. :D

Otherwise, Ryzen kicks ass!

Ok, so I tweaked the setup a little more today. I removed the foam from behind the grill, I added a 120x25 fan to the bottom to cool my wd black, I also mounted all of my 2.5 spinners behind the mobo. I have my ssd in the tray above my wd black, which you cant see because it is buried behind cables. I didn't have any zip ties, so I just used the straps for now, not a big deal to me. The difference between now and when I assembled it is I do not have to bend the panel to close it, it just slides on nicely. Also my wd black no longer sits at about 45-50c, its back down to the low 30s. All of my spinners are surprisingly cool right now. So now that it is assembled properly, I am pretty content with it. The magnets on the top filter were in rough shape, they need to be reglued, so I just grabbed the one off of my mini c. I was also able to grab her hair dryer and get those badges off while she was out
Unfortunately, because my kid scribbled all over his wall with sharpie last year, I ran out about a third of the way into it, because that's my luck. Overall, I am pretty content with it. My R4 treated me well, and I didn't have a good reason to replace other than I wanted something different.

:D

The front ones are either 100 or 110cfm Panaflos, I have those on the R4 fan controller running at 7v, you can hear them, but its just a mild hum, at 12v they scream. I cant remember what kind the back one is, but its getting 12v and is whisper quiet, well, maybe a slight hum.. you can hear my rig is on, but its not intrusive. It is in the living room, and is quite tolerable, until you turn the fronts to 12v.. They are about as loud as my TY-143 at full tilt heheh.

I've done some cable optimization and re-arrangement. Using micro ATX is more troublesome than anticipated since the space is limited.

Removed one SATA PSU cable, one SSD plus its cable, one PCIe 8-pin+8-pin cable, one 120mm case fan and a couple of case fan splitter.

I don't need the SSD since its only hold a couple of games, the extra case fan can be removed since I'm using blower graphics card that act as exhaust fan, undervolting Vega card so it could be powered by one PCIe cable. The case fan fortunately using 3-pin connector and molex so I connect 3 case fan together via its molex connector so it can be fed by one fan header! I love efficiency :laugh:

I'm happy the case looks better now and all the hidden cable doesn't jumble up behind the motherboard :)

All the removed hardware from the PC. My keyboard is dirty as hell, ignore that :p

Just sold my boys 2 older computers for $160. I paid $170 for their 2 newer ones.

The older HP computers had Q9505s CPU's, 6GB 1066 ram and 250GB HD's in a SFF case. The newer Lenovo computers have i5 2400/i5 2500 CPU's, 8Gb 1333 ram and 500GB HD's in a micro ATX case.
Pretty good upgrade for $10.....:toast:

I know it isn't risky anymore, but installing hard drives vertically like that scares the crap out of me still. I just feel like it will error sooner than it would if horizontal, but I have no proof to back that up, just a gut feeling
