my AM2 build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've had this pc about a month now, but i never got round to adding the build log, so here it is :

All the boxes


Getting the PSU fitted :-



My tidy workspace :-



Psu fitted, the i/o backplate next, but realised it was the wrong one supplied with the mobo :-



So after butchering the backplate, i got the mobo in its place :



Stuck the 2gig of crucial in and the gfx card :-



I originally built it using the stock cooler on the cpu :-



But then came the Arctic Freezer Pro :-





Bit of a monster compared to the stock cooler :-



Temp's looking ok :-



The End Product :-



I'll work on my cable management another day

i had to modify it because it wasn't the right one for the motherboard in the box

i got the motherboard off ebay for a tenner, so i couldnt really complain, i just had to cut the plate up a bit
