Yeah, I either remove the whole drive and get a external one or get a black rounded IDE cable.
Yup Koolance bracket, it BARELY fit the fittings, tight fit but it works and no leaks :)

Thanks btw :D
Black rounded IDE cable will be much better. If it's a optical drive I just got an external one, makes life sooo much easier :laugh:

Internal drives are very cheap, you can get a nice used dvd burner for $20 shipped. That mixed with the fact that they're easily installable in every case and that you're going to have to have a SATA power line out anyways for the hard drive(s) leads me to believe that there's no real reason not to have one. That's just my opinion anyways, I'd always have one. Although I don't burn a ton of stuff I wouldn't want to have to deal with an external one and its lower burn speeds and such.

I got my 2nd radiator in today, it didn't turn out as I hoped unfortunately. I had a couple angles off. I need a second 45 degree fitting to replace the 90 degree on the block so I can flip the rear radiator around. Had a leak.. fixed it. It's going to take a long time to get the air out of this thing. Even with just the pull fan and the cheapest 120 radiator I could buy, I shaved about 5 degrees off my temps.

That is 1/2" ID. I got some new white stuff, but that will go on after I get my fitting situation settled. :)

Nope, not anymore. :laugh: I just figured I could use the extra cooling with a Thuban on the way. Plus, I should be able to run my current processor a bit higher since things are staying below 45c.

I'm thinking so. My memory controller on my 965 isn't very good, so I need to run close to 1.4v for a 2750mhz NB. That creates a lot of heat right there.



Before I would be at, at least 48-49c already. Having the rear radiator properly mounted with a push\pull should help even more. It is a PITA working in this tight space with little room to work. Getting the block mounted properly using a micrometer is really troublesome with the tubing in the way. :ohwell:

Internal drives are very cheap, you can get a nice used dvd burner for $20 shipped. That mixed with the fact that they're easily installable in every case and that you're going to have to have a SATA power line out anyways for the hard drive(s) leads me to believe that there's no real reason not to have one. That's just my opinion anyways, I'd always have one. Although I don't burn a ton of stuff I wouldn't want to have to deal with an external one and its lower burn speeds and such.
Newegg actually has a very nice Sony Optiarc for $20 shipped right now. I got one, just haven't felt like turning off my PC to install it yet :laugh:
Going to order another for a different PC as well.

That looks like a really sweet deal Jebus. Back when I was putting my rig together I ordered 2 LG 22X burners at like $26 shipped each. One's in the case now, the other sitting in the closet. Both are excellent drives, never had a single problem with them.



I just reinstalled Win7 after about an 8 month run on the old install. Everything went without a hitch except one little problem. Here it is, a visible "System Reserved" partition, it annoys the living crap out of me:

There's nothing in there, I have no idea why it made that partition. Should I try to get rid of it? Also, that floppy drive has always been visible but I have no floppy drive installed. That also annoys me.

Oh that's something else. I can't make any changes in the BIOS without it doing the 3x power up-fail boot loop (like when you do some ridiculous OC that the computer can't handle). Whatever changes I make stay and take effect, it just fails to boot 3 times. I have nothing overclocked, everything is at stock.

I have no idea about the extra partition, but I think "Black Backup" should be renamed to "Blackup" :roll:

Can you or anyone else confirm this? I know they're not very expensive but there's no reason why mine should be going out so soon.
