Buy the cheapest crap that fits your fittings and holds water. Home Depot generic crap is my choice.
LOL I played with some tape today, THIS is how you mount an SSD on an Antec 1200
Yea I've been on the search to find pics of a HAF X case with all the panels taken off so see how similar the frame is to a 932. I've also been contemplating on replacing the mb tray, i/o shield, and top psu location to make room for a 10 PCI slot + i/o shield back plate.
I like my 932 just think it would be better with a 10 slot PCI back plate since there is a lot of unneeded room at the top.
Finally I decided to disassemble the entire machine for cleaning. The fins of the heatsink had dust balls stuck to it.
Now I understand why the CPU was so hot when working under full load and the temperature dropped from 73 to 67ºC
there we go, newer image of my setup, with external HDD's visible (and not as blurry this time)
Cleaning out dust can definitely help drop temps significantly. I should probably dust my H50 rad eventually
That reminds me. I need to dust out my rads as well. Been a while.
ATM you ask?
Build log so far :
Still got to colour the inside (all black) and finish the back panel. Should have it done by the end of the week.
Daaamn, so clean. Nice setup.
I need to do the same with my system, definitely needs to be taken apart and given a good cleaning.(haven't blown the dust out of it in ages.)
Mind the bright light.
Lookey here at what ol' Joe got in the mail today
I know it doesn't make much sense to have a fast storage drive, but I wanted something that wasn't going to fail anytime soon and in my experience the WD Black drives are damn reliable.
However my personal experience with Western Digital has been the exact opposite, the last 5 I have bought have all died within 3 months, and the RMA's took 2 months! So I have sworn off Western Digital and I will only ever buy Seagate.
Nice Joe, is it going inside your computer or USB dock?
It's going to replace my second 640GB Black in the computer for downloads/storage. That frees up said smaller drive, so I may sell it to help recoup the cost of this new one or put the two 640's back into RAID.
+1 for Raid
-1 for Raid, just had an array drop out
nice rig largon, which GTX465 did you get that unlocked?
I've the same two WD2500AAJS 250 GB HDD's running in raid0 as my boot drive for the last 3 years maybe your drives are gettin to hot that's why their dying
The 465s' brand is Point of View.
My GF's PC is a little smashed ATM since the bottom of the box gave in while I was hoisting it up the stairs... As far as I can tell only the CPU cooler, case and diskette drive are broken though, the curves on her NZXT Lexa Blackline S absorbed alot of the shock I guess.
