i forgot to get a picture of the wires before i put the back panel on as and it was quite a struggle to get it on i left it as it is. but all wires are round the back of the case

Didn't have a metal bender so made my own with screws MDF and a vice.

It was a fun experience some strange quirks put the GFX card in with back-plate attached didn't work pulled hair out took apart put back together without back plate and it worked. put back-plate on while attached to mobo and it worked must of been shorting somewhere.

I am now in the process of saving for a new build thinking about building a machine in a prodigy case as im finding this one is quite heavy to take to lans.

Thanks Guys,

was alot of hard work. (only worked with wood before)

one of the hardest parts was waiting to afford tools. I am currently in the proceess of saving for a new computer as this one is getting a bit dated (still using DDR2 memory) the jar is almost full so maybe a january sales buyout will help :-)

Pic of the jar


If it doesnt happen January thinking of taking this Crossfire BUT i think the core or the pc needs replacing because of the above reason.

Computer has moved to a new location will take a pic and upload.

Thanks again
