Things changed:

  • Installed Cold Cathodes
  • Added 80mm fan at bottom
  • Added DVD-RW drive
  • Cable management
  • Hooked all fans to Fan controller (Exept Gpu fan)

80% done



Before it was horrible,I couldn't even shut the back panel because there was so many cables, i couldn't compact them in anymore but now ive done it,the door now shuts properly and no cables are in the way :P

I like my PSU but its cables are way too short ,I had to buy a Cpu power extension cable+ 24Pin cable extension too.

4890 has been taken apart,cleaned...re-applied thermal paste and new Thermal pads on the cards Memory and VRM.
I was going to buy a new GPU cooler,But they all have problems cooling the VRMs on the 4890s for some reason,There was one cooler i came across that was okay for the 4890 because you could buy a separete VRM cooler but it was and i was not willing to spend that much.




And the finished product:


I will get an inside shot tommorow
CM690?
Same case as what I bought 2 weeks ago. I love it.
I know how you feel about the PSU cables being too short too, I cut mine and soldered some extensions...
It really does look better with black insides... so I think I'll have to get mine painted up too.
I think some pics are overdue... I'l get some up tonight.

I've still got to do a bit of tidying cables, especially for the harddrives.
And I need to sort out some power to the rest of the fans, and lighting.

Before I changed my mobo yesterday my H50 kept my CPU down to 27C steady and 38C whilst gaming. Since installing the Crosshair IV Formula I'm getting 33C and 41C

Palit- 9500GT 1024MB/128bit.
Its the bottom one in the list of pics on that site.
Its rather decent for the time being.
But because of the lack of fans on it, I decided to get that little purple/orange twinfans.

The H50 is lovely and quiet. Made a few people go ooh and aah already.
The whole reason I bought a new case was because the radiator is 120mm, and my old case could only hold 80mm fans.

By the way, where could I go to find the CPU temps?
