PRON UPDATE

band.gif

Ignore the date on the pictures I know its wrong. I am not using my camera. redface.gif

So I immediately came home yesterday after work and I am greeted by three shipping boxes. biggrin.gif



Initial thought are school what is school I have a machine to build!!! But alas I held out from the impulse to miss class last night. I still believe I made the wrong decision there... rolleyes.gif

However back to the CASE PRON!

So when you have three boxes to open which do you open first the small ones or the big one first. thinking.gif

Well I decided to start with the big one first since I've always loved the Case Labs Cases.



I have to admit I have read many build logs with Case Lab cases stating the packaging is superb for these chassis. I would have to agree wholeheartedly that the packaging is superb. The next pron will I give is the M8 Chassis out of its shipping box which was suspended in the middle by four wrap around corner pieces of dense blue foam. Now I have seen packaging of a lot of expensive equipment before and I must say the packaging that Case Lab does takes the whole cake. See the plastic used to wrap the case its so thick its not even funny your not going to be getting through that plastic by no means easily with out a very sharp knife. I would estimate the plastic to be at least 3-4 mil thick if not 5 mil.



And the M8 unsheathed.



Front View



These next pictures are taken inside after I came home from school last night. 03/19/2013

Here is what the packaging of the inside looks like. Talk about not allowing anything to move.



Inside of the case with out the packing paper.



And here are all the extra parts you get with the M8. This picture does include some of the parts used for installation of the grounds on the motherboard removal tray. biggrin.gif




Okay so now some HARDWARE PRON

Hardware Displayed on top of the case.


Sabertooth x79




Checking the pins for the CPU



Checking the DIMMs



Checking the PCI-E


Checking the VRM Heatsink


Checking the TUFF



More to come figured I'd give you all a little eye candy while waiting on the others images. thumb.gif

Whatever it is you decide to do with watercooling your parts... Rest assured, that case is the last one you'll ever need, or want. tongue.gif Seriously, probably the best built and most versatile case money can buy. Particularly with the pedestal, it's literally unmatched in water-cooling friendliness.

Yeah I absolutely love this case I can now actually visualize how big the MAGNUM TX10-V really is and OMG that thing is a monster since it dwarfs my case. lmaosmiley.gif

Yep I have a M8 with pedestal on the way. I saw a TH10 in person and it's actually just too big. M8 is perfect, you don't need any more space unless you have a significantly oversized motherboard.

If I were to recommend a cooler to hold you over until it's watercooling apocalypse time devil.gif then I'd have to recommend the noctua NH-D14 SE2011. Probably the best built air cooler around. Silent as hell too. I had the regular, non-LGA 2011 version before I went under water, and it was amazing. Kept my chip nice and cool at 4.6GHz and 1.35v.

short overview: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/holiday-gift-hardware-computer,3091-12.html

IMO Cooler Master stuff is pretty cheaply made. I have a HAF-X that is bursting at the seams I have so much stuff packed into it, so I've had to modify and cut a lot of material out of it. The quality of the materials isn't anything that approaches what other vendors offer at similar prices. Your i7-3820 deserves something better!

I plan to order a pedestal down the road when I get my water-cooling parts. I plan on it being maybe 1-2 months before I have them ordered since I have a check each month only one bill comes out of I see it happening pretty quickly. biggrin.gif I looked at the Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 but I'm looking at another $40.00 more than the CM Hyper 212 Evo on a CPU cooler that may only be used for a max 3 months. However not that I think about it better to buy the best and not need it than to not have the best and later not be able to water cool for some unfortunate reason... thinking.gif Okay now that I thought about it that would be a better idea at this time. I just hate the cooler of those fans. wth.gif although I may have a plan for them. sneaky.gif

>>UPDATE<<

Ordered Correct CPU Cooler
post #29 of 61
Thread Starter 
I tried to complete a POST today after I received the new Cooler to fit my motherboard. And the Red Led for the CPU lit up instantly on the first POST. I've already taken everything apart and check the motherboard no pins are bent on the CPU socket. I also checked the CPU and nothing is wrong with the CPU. I did double check that the CPU was installed correctly in the socket the first time. I'm hoping I don't have a DOA for my CPU. Any thoughts that would also cause the CPU led to light up? Nothing else lights up except the green stand by before the system is powered on. When its powered on Green light is still good, but now the RED LED is on. frown.gif

On a bright note though I have more pictures I will upload of the new CPU Cooler and more Corsair AF120 fans. biggrin.gif
post #30 of 61
Hey! I got an idea!
If your fans are just too loud here's what you can do, it's a sure way to keep them DEAD SILENT.
Send the whole rig to me, ya won't hear it from my house. biggrin.gif

J/k aside, it's all lookin good. You will really like putting all that stuff under water.
