Re: Show me your wiring.....
Just fitted a new CPU, mobo, memory and PSU. All other components were from my last system and the case I have had for 6yrs and has gone through 3 builds, it's lasted very well. Difficult to tidy up the wiring in in mid size tower as there's very little room, this is the best I can get. The power cable by the ram slots will be tidied up again, can't plug it into my second DVD-RW in the middle as this is an IDE DVD-RW and the mobo has no IDE connector, has a floppy one though
Didn't take it out as I would have had a big hole, need to pickup a second SATA DVD-RW or maybe a Blu-ray drive to fill in the hole
Easiest upgrade ever, I went from a Q6600, 8gb DDR2 and DFI X48 mobo to a Core i7 2700k, 16gb DDR3 and an AsRock P67 mobo. Plugged it in to test and Windows 7 Pro x64 booted up and installed the drivers, never needed to reload Windows and the new system works flawlessly as do all my programs, hell of a speed increase and saved me hours or reinstalling my stuff
Just picked up the Cooler Master 212 Evo cooler to replace the pathetic Intel one. At stock speeds, the Intel cooler idled at around 41c and and at full load with Prime95 hit around 88c , the new one idles at around 37c and at load 64c, much better
Just bought a fractal design ARC case today. I really wanted a "fat" case for me to be able to hide the wires without a lot of work. It was quite a breeze to work in, and i really liked the design. Here is a few photos of it as it stands and i still have a few cables to hide a bit better but im happy for now.
