Should I have the cooler facing the back? I think I need to reapply thermal paste anyway.

I would turn it around so the exhaust fan can pick up the heat . Thats just me though.

Well the fan is blowing up for the big fan, I put it facing that way as hot air rises but it's pulling air from where my 4650 is instead of cool air from the front. I might as well turn it since I need to reapply thermal paste.

I noticed improvements in temperature when I rotated my Ziggy 90 degrees so that it was exhausting out of the back. You're right, as it is now your CPU fan is sucking hot air right off of your video card. Idle temps went from 34 to 32, and load temps from 53 to 50 after my rotating. I have an AM2+ socket, so rotating mine was a little more difficult, but I think well worth it.

I always like to see how well my last thermal paste application went when I pull my cooler, and before I rotated I may have had a smidge to much, but I still think my temp drops were due, in part, to the more efficent exhausting.

It is hard to fit a heap of hardware in that case isnt it.

Absolutely horrible :laugh:

When I bought the Zalman all I could think about until I got it was how dreadful it would be to access the back of the motherboard... And it was :banghead:


Worth it though :toast:

Sorry for the crappy quality cell phone pics :eek:

Just took it apart today to give it a good dusting, and after i put it back together I took these shots. Best cable management I could do without drilling holes, which one day I will do.




Heres the backside yay electrical tape! :D


and my battle station:

Thats my server on the right, have it hooked up to my main monitor via KVM switch.

I moved it off the floor and onto the desk, did a little cleanup and dusting, and took all my extra fans out. I didn't see the need for extra noise if I wasn't overclocking. Also took off the duck feet, I wanted to make it as short as possible if it was going to be on the desk. Quack quack :3

+1 Soylent Joe, those HDD's must be fast. The 640GB's are some of the fastest I've seen. Nice build.

Oh by the way, do you overclock? You could get that e8400 to 3.6-4.0GHz easy on that cooler and mother board.

I ran it at 3.6GHz for about a week, tried for more and made some noobish mistake that put my PC into a never ending reboot loop. Then I just put it back to stock and forgot about it. The extra noise, excessive wear, unstable performance and worrying isn't worth 10 more FPS in some games and faster program loading times. So yeah, just my little opinion.

well, I tweaked the last itty bit of wiring that was pissing me off. I got some still behind the pump I would like to hide somehow, but I cant fix that unless I do some taking apart.

What do you'll think. Before the DVD Drive power and sata cable were exiting by the little space between the tray and the HDD cage. Now, hey! where did they go? :p



Here is a more complete pic of the rig, slightly out of focus, but not a bad pic :D
