My latest project was to upgrade an old Compaq SR1710NX and keep the old case. It came with XP, Athlon 64 3500+, 1GB DDR400, fast for it's time.
I completely disassembled the case and washed it, even the front panel parts and card reader and painted the outside. It's now The Dark Knight.
The new parts, some of which I already had
Windows 7 Ult 64 bit
ASUS M4A88T-M
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T, 2.8GHz, clocked to 3.68GHz
G.Skill Ripjaws Z 1600 8GB, 2x4GB
Corsair HX650 PSU
Hyper TX-3 CPU cooler with two Noctua 92mm fans
1 Noctua 92mm exhaust fan
Dirty case to start with.

After the paint job.
Attachment 213086

Some parts ready.
Attachment 213087

Board with some cables attached going in.

Attachment 213085

The wiring process in progress.
Attachment 213093

Wiring done, OEM cases don't lend themselves to much cable management.
Attachment 213092

Here she is up and running well. I had the board running on the board box for 3-4 weeks to make sure it was stable.

Attachment 213089

..and the completed project back at home. This will be used as a backup rig.

Attachment 213084

And the scores you'll want to know.

The cooler leaves just enough room to get to the RAM.

I got a new WD Blue 250GB HDD today and cloned the old one to it, my WEI drive score went up to 5.9 from 5.4. I'd discovered the old drive was SATA 1.5GBs and was failing.

The reboot time is good too.

Alsisgevat,
Oh happy days! That is some powerfully cool graphics you're about to install. Congrats and we all know you'll be happy when the fittings are all tightened on these bad boys ! If you can shoot a whole series on your water cooling install and the set up and install of these.

Hehe, thanx mate. Yeah I will try to make a build log or something. These cards are ALMOST as beautiful as Megan Fox in that transformers movie.

I basically have all the parts,pumps and fittings, I just need time to install it all. So when my xams finish in a week and a half I will upload those pics

ello folks
finally my cougars turned up yesterday so i could finally install my H100
ive swapped out my xms3 memory for some 1600 vengeance 2x4GB
installed the H100 under the mesh cover on top with 2x120 cougar vortex pushing up through the rad n out.
1x120 cougar rear intake so its bringin col air just underneath the h100.
1x120 cougar as intake in the bottom.
my case temp has dropped by about 3c,
cpu idle temp is down to 31c. its usually about 39c at this time of day.
my gpu idle has dropped by about 4c as the cougar is bringin more air up underneath it. so all is good i just have to get shot of the stock corsair fans from the front and side as i can hear them over the others.
