30 means your computer woke up from sleep or hibernation. If you shut down and turn your machine back on it'll say A0.

Decided that the Aerocool was a little too cramped. I would have never got a second GPU in there anyway. You can keep it up there for archival purposes though smile.gif

Pretty well complete - for now - with the exception of some wire management in the back compartment. Going to clean it up a little bit when I can find my soldering iron tongue.gif Huge thanks to everyone who helped me get all the stuff together I needed for this build! Temps in the mid 20's idle.

I removed the top and bottom grills to paint them red.

Back compartment view - I drilled out the motherboard tray pop rivets and gave it two coats of red paint.

Painted the PCI covers as well. Starting to assemble it together.

I placed a 12" True Red Logisys True-Color CCFL Light Bar across the top for lighting.

You can see the Koolance drain valve in the bottom of the case/loop. I am not real crazy about how the loop looks though.

Blue PCI-e connectors!? Why blue!? I might swap them out at some point with black or red ones.

Close up of the EK-FC780 GPU block and the backplate (backplate MUST be revision 2.0 for Kingpin owners)

p1007300402-4.jpg
Back compartment - I am glad I went ahead and painted the back too. I cut a vertical slot for an additional 5.25 drive (LG Bluray). Monsoon was mounted vertical as well.

Close up of back of the reservoir - Upper left is the fill port, which was a pain to use because it kept getting air locked.

I'll have to grab pictures of mine when I have more than a single lightbulb in the room.

Anyone know of anyone or anywhere besides ebay (All come from china and will take weeks) that I could grab an IO shield? Got my mobo as an open box deal and the only thing missing was the IO shield. frown.gif

Having a weird issue -

If i have my sony optical drive connected during the boot process it wont load the OS but instead boots right in to the bios.

If i disconnect the optical drive via sata power it then boots normally in to the OS!

All i am trying to do is burn a cd lol.

NVM just updated to the latest bios update and apparently it fixed this issue for me.

I just got mine yesterday and put the mPCIe slot together. I still have to tear down the whole dang thing to get it secured to the motherboard and I/O shield.

Hi members, I'm currently considering getting this board, what really interested me in it was the MPCIE slot which you can apparently put WI-Fi modules in and small sata SSDs I can't find many if any other board on the market which provides this slot, my main interest is the ability to put Wi-FI modules in it which is beneficial to me as I plan to fill the PCIE slots with GPUs or other components, but apparently for these modules you'll need antennas so i was hoping to clear it up before I make my decision on getting the board or not, what kind of antennas would be needed for this and how would they be mounted, inside or outside the case? are they included when you purchase them or are they separate from the module?

I'm not in the US so I cant get the one which i quoted from amazon sadly.
