With a new motherboard installed and some final design adjustments, Babalon really starts to shine.
I aborted the plan of cutting a totally custom fan controller faceplate for something a little simpler.
The sleek and streamline looking back of the case and my Thermaltake Toughpower 700w looking cozy down at the bottom. The rear 120MM fan grill is a recycled part from a Lian Li GPU fan mount.
Again, I like to recycle would-be scrap part from my case, as I did here with this small shroud like piece.
Here are my Scythe S-FLEX fans withn their gaskets and shrouds. With the seal almost air tight and these well balanced fans in a pull config, this radiator stays pretty well chilled.
Finishing up my cable management and a few other internal things. The yellow SATA cables will be replaced with black ones, to blend them in better. I'm also thinking that I'll add a few more drops of UV dye to the loop.
As far as an overclock, I'm stable thusfar at:
3ghz @ 11x272
29C Idle, 39C Load
htt multi: x3
Right now I'm pushing my RAM timings and overclock.
