The problem w/ copper is that it oxidizes w/ it is in contact w/ air rather quickly. I am not sure if the automotive protectants I use will help with that. I'll more than likely stick w/ acrylic and nickel for my builds though.
Installed the new board in the case to see what needs to be done to get it to work. This is probably the biggest issue. On the Asus board the 8-pin is reverse to how it was on the Gigabyte. This is going to be a huge headache. Will likely need to build a new cable from scratch.
Just a random shot of the CPU block.
24-pin connector was about 3-4 cm lower than the Gigabyte. However it still is holding its shape. Even just slightly more and it would start to deform I think. Got lucky here.
GPU sits in the same slot so the cables are still good obviously. Rather surprised how after 14 months the cables are still holding their shape perfectly. You can see the front panel power/reset cables are pretty much in the same place as the Gigabyte board as well.
