I know you are antsy to get things installed in your shiny new case (heck, who wouldn't be?) but you might want to wait and bench everything before installing any of it into your case. It will make getting at everything easier should you have a problem. Once you know it will post, install only the bare minimum to get the OS installed and running, then add one thing at a time so you will have a better idea of what, if anything, is acting up.

Thanks for your concern Lady F, but I only stripped everything out of my old case a day ago, so you could say it's been tested for many months lol. I am not reinstalling Windows as there has been no hardware changes. It is basically a transplant from the old case to the new.

Well actually I lied a little Lady F, I have used some of the components, namely the PSU, CPU, Ram and Cooler to benchtest an old motherboard to see if it was faulty (which it is not) So apart from the Sabertooth motherboard and my GPU I can confirm everything else is working just fine, I am using what is in the picture as I type this.

Looks familiar Paul. I test everything before mounting a new board in a case, memtest, drive tests, install an OS, and optical drive and run it all. All the better overclocks I have posted are from the Sabertooth laying on a box on a table.

Well it's finished for now. I still need to put some lighting into it, I also need to change the cooler to a dual rad one. I didn't really know where to put the Antec 920 but I didn't want it at the back of the case as it is so thick with both fans fitted.

I just can't seem to take a good picture of it, it's a pain it the ass, it looks considerably nicer than it does in the pics. I will try and take some better ones soon when the light is better.

The wiring went pretty well and it looks fairly tidy to me so I am happy with that.

This thing weighs a ton now it has all the parts fitted I tell you!


Paul.
