Its not the fact I dont know where Just is a no go.
JR is there any way of turning off/blowing up those blue led's on the tracers?
I can take a black marker to 'em. But I like em.
I didn't care if i killed them i just wanted to see what kinda balls they had. And they didn't have vary big ones. So yes in a way i did try to kill them.
Jr, the rig is looking sweet! I say, for the covering of the whole "rocketfish" case.. Sheet Metal from Home Depot/lowes.. I think I got about 12f for 7 bucks..
Thanks man, but care to elaborate on what you mean by "covering"?
use modders mesh to make a channel for it?
Sometimes Jr, in the open and neatly tied can look slick as well.
I see a couple easy things you could do, but without a dremmel, the bulk of the PSU wiring is tough to hide.
not mine, just a funny case i saw a pic of, go action man!
Find a picture of My Cosmos case when I redid the loop. I took out the bottom three hdd racks and covered it with some thin sheet metal. To hide the pump and what nots...
well, I got some pics for you guys, but first the story of the day.
as some of you know, ive been dealing with instability issues with my i7 rig. First internet connectivity was intermitent, a reboot will fix it momentarily, then a few minutes after going into windows, BSOD "machine check exception" I loaded defaults blaming the overclock for this, today i'm jamming away and the sound cuts off, then a few seconds later, the same BSOD. Shit, i'm thinking my board is loosing it! I remove the sound card, BSOD right away. So I load defaults again, somewhere along the way I had loaded my overclocked settings. At defaults, its working fine, i'm using my on board.
After a few hours of putting my E7200 in the new case (Thermal Take Element S) i reboot my comp because i had tried the soundcard in the e7200 pc, and the card worked. I was going to give it another shot on the i7 rig. Well, the PC wouldn't boot, removed card, nothing. Removed video card and put the X300 from my other rig and it booted. So I was getting ready to call it quits and say my other 4870 had gone to shits, when I decided to try something. I cleaned all ati drivers with Driver Sweeper, popped in the 4870 and it booted. So, I installed new drivers, put in the sound card, gave it fresh drivers too, and now here I am better than ever. Back to my overclocked crunching settings and all . So enough of this boring story, here are the pics of the E7200 rig for now on air, once I get a few spare pennies, i'll do the project log and watercool it
Sorry I didn't take more pics, camera was running out of battery and I don't have the charger, it's at the owners house
This board however is anti cable management because of the location of the 24pin. Impossible to hide if you ask me. Does anybody have any suggestions for that?
...and for your own viewing pleasure, these are the settings i'm crunching on the i7 rig now, for those interested in knowing:
looks good but you need more cable tube for the rest of that 24pin... once its all in that tube, you won't even notice it.
Gratz on fixing the windows shenanigans... im having some "problems" with windows 7 now too where it passes 24hrs of linpack, prime, and memtest and then 48hrs in will randomly crash when coming out of idle mode (sleep is disabled)... so if i jsut leave the PC crunching for like a day then move the mouse, the screen will come back on but it will take 3 mins for windows to come back to life - and sometimes it BSODs... grrrrr.
Thanks bro, I had done the tubing when I had it in my old case, so thats why its not looking right. When I have a few dollars, I will do a project log, it's going to go water cooled and I and going to sleeve the PSU. Then it'll look right For now that's good enough. I will also try to find a way to cover the PSU area in the bottom so you can't see all the cables just sitting there. Use like mesh or something.
I think the only way to hide it is to custom cut the 24 pin harness, either route it at the back portion going to the PSU or route it like this and using wire loom cover, just my opinion bro
Edit: I added the blue routing (just my opinion) if you dont want to custom cut, and cover it with black wire loom
hmm, thats a great idea. The cable is decently long, maybe I can get an extension. I plan on sheathing the PSU, not sleeving/cutting. Sorry I just found the right word. So I don't want to be cutting anything. I will have to see if with an extension, it would become long enough to go all the way around.
Got my new Side Panel
what does this upgrade of side panels consist of?
A 120MM Blue LED FAN blowing Cool Air on my XFX 4850
500 Post! O... Snap!!!
oh nice, I see. Any difference in temps?
As soon as I get my V8 in Thursday I'll throw a pic or two up in here. I think I could do some decent management but I hate having the damn 8 pin trailing up the side of the case!
meh, about 2C lower i'd say from what HWMonitor is giving me. my Computer is a HELL of a lot quieter now that my old Side Panel and 2 120MM Blue LED fans are out and put away. the Fan on the new Side Panel is so quite
looking forward to the pics . What do you mean trailing up the side of the case?
so cooler, and quieter. Sounds like a winner
Heh, at least now i can see how much dust is being collected. though it won't be that much anymore
Like this. Lol at my paint skillz. Red is the 8 pin.
