No way, just set it up on the coffee table, making sure it blocks the TV so everyone has to admire the awesomeness.

I have 2 5.25 slots left. Either open for a future Rez or a 3 in 2 dual bay HDD caddy.

Ok, some progress made today...

I drilled out the screw channels on the heatsinks.





Mounted the two heatsinks to the motherboard.





Then I shortened and added a 1x5 pin usb cable to the end of the now shortened cord.




I have it booting to the BIOS. However a setup password is holding me back... I'm researching that now.

EDIT: booting to windows now





I have found out that this ram and chipset is really hot. I'm going to have to make a shroud to hold a fan to blow down on the ram.

Thats it for now.. Cheers Alder

Great looking build so far. Count me as subbed thumb.gif

Oh, and those CM Turbines are perfect for the steampunk theme.
It's so little!
