I hurt like f*** at the min but have got to get it finished today so i get everything installed and rock solid stable so i'm not constantly having to sort problems with it.
Hopefully she appreciates the effort gone into it, i know she's really looking forward to getting it as she's told all her mates that i'm building it and tha nobody else will have one like it. I have a feeling it will sit unused by her though once the novelty wears off but atleast she'll be able to use it for anything she needs for a few years.
In the time she has it though i will try to teach her as much as poss from what i've learned here. Then when she leave's home she can upgrade it herself
It will get plenty of use from my mrs i think while the babby is at school as she likes the look of my graphics. Better than her xbox

Edit: I finally got the build finished but not got time to power it up tonight, Meeting about our servers. So i'll get windows installed tomoz.
Here's another couple of pics for ya. The camera washed the colour out of the stickers so they dont look to good. Turning the light off may of helped The Storm is pink
That looks totally awesome mate, really great job you have done there!

Attachment 246688I'm so happy with my first build that I thought I'd share.
Cable management could be a tad better. I wish I'd spent a bit more on the case.
Also I had to face the PSU fan inwards since when facing down it was very loud plus the case does not have filters for the PSU (could it be that it chocked when facing down?). This way it is almost silent even when under load and it stays clean.

Ganjiry: Cool rig! Vey nice gift.
Fantastic job for a first build there Bungee, looks great

ganjiry, well done. A really great build. I know she will be mighty proud of that one. You outdid yourself.


@bungee18, great looking rig. You did well, especially for you first build. Congratulations on a job well done. It looks like a great build.

Paul, essenbe,
Thanks for your comments.
I enjoyed myself so much while doing it that I'm seriously thinking about starting a new one and giving this one for xmas to my oldest nephew.
The only reason I might not do it is that since down here is summer I'd rather be out there in the water kite surfing and fishing.
Maybe I'll start a new one at the end of the summer. The temptation is strong though.
Cheers!

It's not so much a bug as it is an infection. To my knowledge the only cure is the next build !

Trust me, I know. It is quite addictive. Every time I do a build, I'm mentally planning the next one.

Bungee, to answer your question, it is possible that the PSU was choking. Just looking at the case, it looks like it is sitting flat on the table. The PSU has no place to pull air from. Put some legs or castors under it and try it again. It needs some way to draw outside air in. You can buy magnetic filters that will attach to the bottom, so it does not draw dust inside the PSU. With it up like that, it is pulling in warm air from inside the case attempting to cool itself, plus there is too good an opportunity of dropping a screw or something inside it. Then you will have problems. Just my .02 cents. But, there are a lot of people who install them fan up, so you have to decide that one for yourself.
