    Slowly but surely I will have:

    - eVGA 750i FTW mobo
    - Corsair Dominator Series 4gb (2x2gb) DDR2 1066 RAM

    Samsung 24" LCD (T240) will be here Friday! WOOT!
    Hopefully your 750i FTW won't be DoA like my 780i was... I got to install a quad monitor setup at work yesterday using four T240's and an "Ergotron DS100 Quad-Monitor Desk Stand" mount, basically it's this thing here:

    Very nice monitors indeed, especially when linked in the above setup... I was amazed!

    uh oh... what did you do?

    buy the replacement with the window. and cut it out and make it bigger. It's not that hard. you saw the window I did on my 690 right?
    Well, I was having some difficulties installing the side panel on my CM 690 yesterday. Mainly because I'm retarded and didn't actually read the instructions that were on the Frozen CPU website, I just went ahead and started cutting assuming that it would be like all the other case window installs that I've done. However, my previous case window mods were "tape mods' so all I did was use a square piece of plexi behind the panel "window hole" and taped it into place using Scotch/3M #4010.

    However, this window kit uses U/H channel as an anchoring method. When I cut the whole in the case I used the window as a template by tracing around it, however I didn't use the included washer to add the extra space required for the u/H channel molding! Therefor when I went to install my window I found that the hole was to small to fit both the window and molding into! Noes!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyhow, the nice thing about having holes that are to small, is that you can make them bigger... Which I did by measuring the amount of room required and making a new cut to trim about 10mm off two of the edges (5mm per side x 2 sides = 10mm off left/bottom sides). Luckily enough for me, this fixed my problem! Here are some pictures (no work in progress pics unfortunately)!

    Completed panel installed on the case:










    Computer back in it's home:




    Booting up:






    Internals:






    Also removed the top plastic honey-comb:




    And of course, a nice big glass of chocolate milk to finish the job!

    (Screw you, chocolate milk is the best drink ever!)

    Yes, those are stuffed animals/beanie babies in the display case in the background of some of the pics. No I'm not homosexual. Those have been there ever since I was like... 4 of 5 years old, and I've never gotten around to taking them out and replacing them with something else... Anyhow, you can throw me into the Modded CM 690 owners category now!

    p.s. Large versions of all of the pictures are available here.
