As they should be, great cases
Very nice, yeah I'm really liking it (despite the issues I'm having
Was hoping this was going to be more positive than the last one, however things did not exactly go as plan....
Start off on a good note, new stuff
I wonder what's in the box?
New fans to fit the colour scheme a little better, even me with my lack of colour awareness realised that the random blue leds of the black fan currently on the radiator wouldn't fit in with the overall look.
The new GPU being a Twin Frozr 7950 from MSI
The SSD for the build, a Seagate drive, had it for a couple of months now, been saving it for this build!
Potential location, most likely attached to the side of the radiator, off of the base.
Let's get some RAM in this thing, and the Samsung sticks are perfect, nice and small like the rest of the build.
Went to install the fans, and found that the orientation of the radiator as it was, with the hoses coming from the top was a little awkward, so decided to flip it around.
Looks a little more beefy now, and fits nicely into the space! (before anyone says anything, yes I need to remove one of the fans to bring the power cable through but I forgot!)
So, to installing the gpu!
Wait a minute, that looks a little familiar....
Not what I wanted to see. Got a quick ruler out and what do you know, the PCB wasn't 261mm as stated on MSI's own specifications page, but was in fact around 267mm, basically the same length as my previous card and so it doesn't fit!Now I must say here, whilst Scan haven't sponsored me at all with this build, I do want to thank them, thanks to them using DPD I've been able to get stuff ordered for next day delivery which has been a life saver. They also offered a complete refund of the MSI card considering the circumstances which is greatly appreciated.
So I was in rather a panic, spoke to Justin at Parvum about the possibility of cutting the acrylic, but wasn't sure how to do it without ruining the front, since cutting all the way through would be seen via the logo on the front.
In the end I ordered a MSI (risky I know!) GTX670 OC card. Meant to be 242mm, so even if it's a bit out should have plenty of room, the plain black look of the card shouldn't look too out of place either. Once again thanks to Scan that will be arriving tomorrow when hopefully I can actually get everything plugged in and at least check to see if anything is dead, then hopefully get Windows and some games installed ready for the LAN at the weekend!
