looking good Mandrix...

I dont know about the seasonic PSU's but if you ask them usually they do have what i want or need. I just drop them a email if i don't see it on the site.. and usually they send me a link to it on their site.

Thanks, I like it better. I wanted the blue painted ones to look good, but they just didn't for some reason. I think socketus suggested painting the whole flex bay to match and maybe that's what it would have taken to make the metallic blue work, I don't know. Repainting white was easier though.

18 & 10 pin connectors are peculiar to some SeaSonics and are hard to find. I buy stuff from PPC's all the time so it's not like I don't know about them. Since they are so close to me I actually buy more from them than from anywhere else. I have to pay FL tax but I get what I order in two days. wink.gif

Aquaero LT is behind the 4th bay cover, but I have a faceplate painted white for the other Pro when it gets back to me.

Just bought another 7950. biggrin.gif
PowerColor AX7950 3GBD5-2DHV4 Radeon HD 7950 Boost State

Price wasn't too bad, about $280 with several free games.
I'm either going to put this in my backup rig, or swap it for the older 7950 in Merlin. One way or another I need a good card in my backup Switch 810, the crossfired 6850's ain't cutting it for a long time now.

How to get SATA cables down to the pedestal without going through the light panel?

Go to the side and make some holes for a cable pass through.



BTW had to order all new SATA data cables, out of all the ones I have none would reach.

That made such a difference painting the drive and moving the others. Fabulous!

I've been running Akasa for quite a while. But since I moved the drive cage down I have to have much longer cables. I got some identical to Akasa but cheaper.
What you mean "like chris"? lol. You're the one that copied his build log. tongue.gif
But yeah, Chris has had some good ideas, for sure. thumb.gif

Let Bart see that "hole" you made - he would SO freak out. Make a hole and make it wide !

what'd you use - obviously you didn't take the case apart. Total tool noob here.
