Well just got home with some goodies from Microcenter, ended up getting my case (pictures do not do it justice), my F3, Samsung DVDRW, 24pin sleeved extention, and 6pin pci extention. Just gotta get my mobo, and windows 7, and my PSU and memory should be here on monday. Pics soon to come.

Came home to some more goodies:



My TX650 and 4gb Ripjaw


pulled the cables through getting ready for CM


Hooked up the fans and jumped the PSU to test both at once


Ran to Microcenter to pick up a 8pin extention and ended up coming home with this




It was a return that was tested from asus. Cant go wrong. still has warranty

Did some serious Cable management, im a freak about it. Still has some touching up to do. And still waiting on my GPU to come in.




Once i get gpu and windows 7 in she'll be good to go! cant wait to get my game on. lol And i didn't realize the cpu 8pin extension i got, ended up being a pci 8pin so wouldn't work on the cpu.

Would have been nicer with an HX model of corsair PSU. That big ugly yellow label kills the whole thing. Other than that, it looks nice.

Yeah i was thinking the same thing. But I wasn't to spend more money on the PSU just to get a different color. I might do something with it.

Well just found out my GPU was delayed a few days, because of a address mess up. So from what he says should be here friday or saturday. I hope so, don't wanna wait til monday. Just waiting on that and my OS. And we will be ready to boogy.

But did a few updates with the CM, ran cables a little differently in the back seemed kind clustered up in one area. Tried to spread it around. And routed my front panel USB 3.0 to get plugged in the back. Pictures to come as soon as i find my camera cord.

No more ugly yellow label!

OP changed a little to reflect upgrades I would like to do.



Front header USB 3.0
