Sometimes the best course of action and I've had to contact them in a couple of situations like this and they're very good.

Hi All. I got the motherboard drives to install and the system is up and running. A very long story short, it turned out to be I have the Windows PATH for TMP/TEMP set to a different physically drive, which was not installed yet. Apparently, the CD needed to find it and couldn't. I installed the hard drive and things worked just like they should.

Thanks. Really not much to see and I got so 'consumed' with the problems I was having, I didn't take many shots. Well, I took a lot of shots of the error messages I got, LOL.

The box is stuffed on the shelf so no case shot. I did attach a Web shot of the same case so you can see what it looks like. I like the Thermaltake Soprano case so much, I have two of them. That hump on top is a SATA hot swap bay; pretty handy!

I did take a shot of the inside of the old system. It's almost identical to the new build as it's in the same case. The visual differences are the motherboard is MSI red instead of Asus blue, the video card, and the PS. Even the heat/sink fan is the same model.

Oh, and in a different thread on video card back plates, Lady Fitzgerald wanted a shot of the back plate, so I'll include that here, too.

Nice systems and you may consider adding a 120mm quiet fan next to the PSU on the floor pulling cool air up to the GPU and CPU as well as the front case fans.

Hi linnemeyerhere. I kind of have that, but in reverse. The case has two 120mm fans, one in one out. Notice the shot of the old build: the PSU is mounted with the fan down. I don't really like that, even though it might be best for the PSU, as I have long haired dogs. So sucking up all that hair can't be too good, either.

Also, I remember when PSUs were on top, sucking air out of the case and that just seems right to me. It's hard to see, but in the 2nd shot, of the back plate, you'll notice that the new PSU is mounted with the fan on the inside, sucking air out of the case, hopefully drawing it in from the front filter. So that's one 120mm fan on top, and one on the bottom pulling air thru the case.

Also I went with what I thought was overkill on the PSU, too. I'm not going to SLI or anything like that, so my power demands are kind of low. Still, I got a EVGA 850W Gold Plus PSU. For what I have stuffed in my box, that should just be barely off idle, sort to speak. Heck, the 'old' build was running just a 650W PSU and I didn't have any issues.

If my thinking on this is off, please don't hesitate to let me know. How else does someone learn?
