Nice looking rig acid
me liky liky that koolance block aCid
ripping my rig apart atm ready for the 1090T and the Crosshair IV Formula due tomorrow
This block is the best band-for-buck out there in my view....not very far off the HK3 but a lot cheaper in price, cant go wrong.
And you can use this on pretty much any setup with a $10 top plate...the one I have fitted now works on AMD (AM2/3) and S775....I do believe I also have the S1366 too.
I want a nice 6 core but cant afford it yet, need to offload some parts before I can upgrade anything.
New case Antec P183 and motherboard Gigabyte UD7 And my dremel is dead so work has come to a holt =/
Here is the inside of the case some work left to do
And the motherboard.
Don't know about you guys but I am fully erected at the moment
hv => WOW, monster
Acid => Nice pic
I see no pink and flowery cases there. That's why I was disappointed, because I was able to find the case and it wasn't what I expected.
As I found out, Dremel will replace their stuff for just about any reason. I killed mine by over-working it until it over-heated and the magic smoke came out and they replaced it without even needing a receipt or invoice or anything. They also sent me a free collet set, a rust-removal bit, and a dvd with project tips.
Yeah, it wasn't easy to get used to, but it did. One big benefit is if the block springs a leak, it won't get on the cards.
I suppose that would be a pretty good benefit. Also, I do agree with others that cards look better with the coolers on top. There are some other things I would like about the configuration, but I'm just so used to standard ATX, and I'd also have to turn my case around so side-fan/s wouldn't be against an object.
Got my replacement top panel for the Sniper in the mail today. Although it took almost 4 weeks time from sending in a part request to getting the part to my doorstep, and I never paid a penny and they kept in the know about the process, so I'm impressed with CM's customer service
I discovered that the panel's I/O area has a modular design.
So I was able to take out just the board that contained what I needed (headphone jack).
Now, I also have a cool little power/reset switch and fan controller to toy around with, along with an extra top panel.
I'll enjoy my computer for the remainder of today, but I'm going to have a lot of stuff to do to it tomorrow. Install the new I/O board which will mean I have to disconnect everything else coming from up there and undo some CM straps. I also think I'm going to flip around my DK to how it should be positioned.
Sweetness, running overclock at 850 and 1200 max out everything at 2560x1600 on BC2 and no lag at all. Amazing.
Here is my PC at the moment, probably the last time you'll see it since I'm going to be joining the i7/Corsair 800D Club in the following 2-3 months!
I've spent most of the day fiddling around with my rig, doing some changes. Here are some of the highlights.
How it looked at 11 this morning.
CPU cooler after 11 months of use (not that bad compared to how others look after 6 months).
Did a flippy jones.
Here's how it's looking now. I took some pictures of the case in my makeshift studio. Debating on selling it for something smaller...
Great cable management joe
