so, it's been a loooooooooooooooooooooong time since I've updated. I have some good news and some less good news. First, the good news:
This PC has been up and running for about 8 months and I <3 it muchly. Beasts games at 2560x1440 with some OCing on the 690 and silent as you like. Also, I have added a windowed side panel (GPU side) and a new front panel that better suits the colour scheme.
Now, the less good news. As you can see in the photos, after 8 months my Mayhem's pastel red turned into a very odd colour, more like a deep maroon. I'm unsure of what has caused this change but it really irks me as it contrasts with the other red of the case HORRIBLY. Solution time!
What I'm thinking of doing is replacing the pastel red with pastel white. Red/white/black looks boss so I'm sure it will look good in this situation. Furthermore I have put in place the motions to FINALLY get the right side panel windowed ^_^. Lastly, and I'm not 100% on this one but I think I'll give it a go, I'll be trying acrylic tubing to get some straighter runs, nice right angles without the excessive use of fittings that I currently have! None of this will be occurring til Feb/March of next year however as I'm returning home for University holidays and leaving this PC here. However, I have a PC there I want to to work on. it's a SLi 570 set up in a rather large HAF 932 that I want to transfer into a Phenom X
Should be fun and I'll post some pics.
