A 902 can't be that heavy. My P180 is roughly 30 lbs and it's HUGE.

I just weighed it and it's 16lbs. So estimate about half. After I build my new system, if you decide you really want it, set up the shipping and send me a shipping label. Just so you know I'm gutting the case. I'll post a pic and list what I'll put back in. Maybe 2 120s and the 200. None of which have LEDs. The mesh power supply cover I made and the handles for the front bay covers. I'll also include an Antec 5.2 hot-swap hard drive bay.

I also have a modded Sunbeam Tech Rehobus Extreme 6 ch fan controller that now has red LEDs instead of blue(one set of LEDs is not working). I also have the Kazemaster 6ch fan controller that I may or may not keep. I used the 6ch controllers to control 5 fans and two 4" cold cats. I like to have my lights on a dimmer.

Speaking of lights, this might be a good time to ask if anyone could make me a board. I would like to be able to do the following with my lights. On a four- way switch that has the following; OFF- turns the lights off. ON- turns lights on. POS 1-I'd like to have this be a heart-beat/throbbing light that would monitor the video card temp. This way the cooler the video card temp the slower the pulsing, the hotter the faster. POS 2- sound activated. I've seen the arduino units and they look like fun, but I have to do more research on those.

Again, Anyone have any tips on removing the pins from the female side of a 24pin extension cable?

Now back to the build!

Looks good installed. Any tips for covering the pcb on the video card? Blue just isn't working for this project

I say you make a Back-plate that attaches onto the stock cooler's bolts, and runs to the end of the card to cover it up. I'm currently paining some Older T3 80MM Fan Grill - Vintage! It rules :3


But yeah, if It's 16 lbs, then 20-25$ for shipping is not a hassle, if I can sell my MSI 880GM-E41. It's been given 55-60$ here on OCN For Used in Appraisals. I'm sure you can sell it for cheap, if you change your mind and want a lil' bit of cash (In this case, cash if you sell the mobo, if we swap). I'm sure you can take this board, + A Athlon/Phenom Chip and make a HTPC W/ 2-4GB's RAM and a small HD 5670. Or, just make a lil' compact gaming machine with the board.

Painted the H70 fan blades grey and put a carbon fiber patch in the center. I am using Enermax fans and not the noisy Corsair fans.

Thanks for the offer but I don't think I want to trade anything. I'm trying to get rid of old stuff. Some stuff like the modded Antec 902 case I'm willing to donate if you pay for shipping. I have some other older hardware I'm looking to sell like two EVGA GTX 260 SOC video cards and other stuff. Lets disucuss this in a pm or email. But for now feast your eyes on this!



Absolutely no cable management done! I bought a power supply tester from Fry's and I'm not sure if it did something to my 750 or not. I'll be taking the tester and power supply to Fry's for them to test. So I used my Corsair 850 instead. Anyone have a suggestion on mounting this to the back side of the mobo tray without drilling holes and that would be strong enough to hold the cables?
