    That 1055t @ defaults scores a 7.4 in windows. wonder what its like oc'd

    @Bungee. good job nice rig but some how i don't think you will leave the cables like that now. You'll have to start fiddling.
    Thats how it starts n then you stuck

    Hadn't been getting notifications for this thread for some reason
    Ganjiry,

    You coulndn't be more right. Right after posting I started browsing some of the pics in this thread.
    Could not help it and had to take the thing apart once again!
    Luckily I had some cable ties (several sizes and colours ) to help me do a proper job this time around.
    Also I couldn't bare the old skool look of the PSU fan facing inside, so I went ahead and turned the PSU upside-down again.

    As you said, I'm stuck.

    I'm already planning my next build. I think I'll go Intel this time. Not that I need the additional performance, but I want TRIM in RAID and the new ASUS Sabertooth for Intel is nothing short of amazing.

    As linnemeyerhere said, I'm beginning to think it is more an infection than a bug.

    Cheers.

    Here's how it looks now

    I'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! Very nice gift.
    Good job on your 1st rig Bungee18. A Guy

    What's that mean Ryan? To the GFX team it would e be red/green/blue referring to a color palette. Great looking machine for your daughter....I'm available for adoption to a good home if you'd like another kid.

    Juan, that's quite a good cabling job you've done!

    I'm only keeping as a single colour though. She'd love it purple but since the pink behind my monitors is meant to be purple. I'll go with red to match her fans led's

    Ahh ha! I would keep a single color as well. I think constantly changing colors would make me sick and/or annoyed.

    I was planning on doing the RGB led tape too! Down here it goes for like 20 bucks a meter. They'll cut it to any length you want and then weld a a molex connector and any switch you like to it, but I've been unable to find a switch that I can mount on my chassis, and I want to be able to turn it on/off.
    Then I found a set of two cold cathodes (they come either in R, G, B, Y or W) that already comes with with the 4-pin connector and a switch you can mount on an expansion slot to turn on/off and regulate intensity. Sleeved cables and everything.
    I think I'll go that way.

    BTW, now that my case has proper legs, they are like 4 times. taller than the cheap plastic things that came with the case, my PSU doesn't scream any longer when under load.
    I had them on a hi-end turntable which has been replaced.
    It is nice to recycle old stuff, and I think they even look cool.

    Yeah, I'm happy!
    Now I gotta get out of here and get in the water and catch some sun to compensate for the hours I spent tweaking under the hood.

    BTW, the other day you mentioned that you were going to OC your daughter's 1055t.
    Maybe you can help me out: Right now I have my 8120 at 4.3K and 1.404V. Temps are nice and low, peaks at 50 C after and hour or so of prime95 blend. Memory is at 1866 10,11,10,27 (1600 CL9 stock).
    I would like to take the CPU to 4.5K, but been unable to get stable past 4.3 so far. Tried rising the voltage and defaulting mem to stock. I'm doing multiplier and voltage only so far. The rest of the stuff is far too cryptic for me at this stage. Anything beyond 4.3K I fail p95 within a couple of minutes.
    Any advice?
