Thread: my first noob steps!

  1. #1

    my first noob steps!

    my stock system

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13Ghz Conroe
    Kingston DDR2 PC800 2Gigs RAM
    Maxtor 180Gb HDD SATA
    XFX 8500GT 512Mb GDDR2
    Sony DVD-R/W
    on a generic china-made mid tower case

    i just started with the wirings...

    tried to clear it off the motherboard because my pc case has a big fan on the side...
    i was hoping for better air circulation

    you'll see 1 led fan intake at front and an old 90mm dia. exhaust at back from one of my broken down PSU...

    after sometime i had some money and bought a Tt SilentWater...

    and i tried to keep the uncluttered wires...
    but i had difficulty mounting the whole thing at the back becasue my case wasn't a thermal take and even though a 120mmdia fan can fit there... the radiator-fan assemble just wouldn't fit...

    so i decided to cut the drive bay support at front by drilling onto the metal rivets...
    drilled some more holes on the front of the metal case.

    and decided to put that there...

    my next project is to slowly upgrade the water cooling system... and replace my ASUS P5B VMDO motherboard.

    maybe after that id start modifying the exterior of my machine....

    plus i want to collect the tools first before i start messing with exteriors...

    hehehe...hope somebody can help me improve!

    Looks pretty good so far. What you should do is get another cheap case like that and work on it WHILE you have you system set up in that case. Plus you won't have so much pressure if you mess up. good luck and have fun!!

    that's what im thinking id go for the MOBO... because my PSU is already 5oo watts with dual fun... although it is still one of those generic china made... but i swear after the MOBO id buy a 550 watts or 750 watts thermaltake PSU... hehe...

    but i must buy that MOBO first before my wife get's back here with me!!!! Because im sure i will not be able to buy anything for my pc when she comes back! hehehe
