So yeah: reboot every single day. Or, just reboot whenever you are going to leave the computer for like an hour or more. But always reboot.

Thank you for bringing this up, Doat!
Does this happen to everyone? Because I keep my PC on for weeks at a time and nothing really changes lol? If anything its slower right after I boot it and it just gets faster.

It sounds like there are two different things being discussed.

Of course, what you're experiencing is how everything is loading from memory instead of from the HDD. But, even though I don't know how to explain it or verbalize it, I think I understand what doat is talking about. Rebooting makes everything nice and fresh.

Also, I want to mod in an on/off switch for my two top fans.

Anyone got ideas for where to put the switch?


how about on the imput output panel on the top one above the e sata and one below

It's better, but you can certainly put more effort into it. I mean, check this out:

http://www.overclock.net/6443821-post5332.html

And that's almost 2 months ago. So, it's even more perfect now. I should try to take new pics. For some reason, these pics just don't show how clean it really is.


yeah I'm still working on the sata cables they are in a prick of a spot inbetween my two graphics cards . but geeze the back of the eg you gave me is a mess but since I don't have a window and don't intend on having any I think it's a little less of an issue I'm not going for pretty as much as I'm going for practical

Yeah, you like it? hehe

For the SATA cables, try to do what I did with mine.

For the CPU power cable, you might be able to run it under the video cards near the expansion slots.

Regarding the red eSATA cable: notice where mine is and how I stuffed it behind the motherboard tray.

You may also be able to sneak the external USB port cables underneath the slave video card.

Other than that, it's just small details to make it look pretty.

P.S. If you want your system details in your signature like the rest of us, then do this:
  1. Click on "User CP" on the black bar at the top. Alternatively, click "Quick Links" over on the left, and then choose "User Control Panel", which is on the third dark bar down from the top of this menu.
  2. Once in the User CP, click "Edit System" on the left.
  3. Fill it in as best as you can. The more complete it is, the better.
  4. When finished, press Enter. Alternatively, click "Save Changes" at the bottom.
  5. The save confirmation is when you are automatically scrolled back to the top.

I notice no change at all. BTW I'm fairly certain that the memory gets wiped only when cold booting.

I know this sounds dumb but is there any way at all to isolate and find out where unsightly vibrations are coming from in the case like for instance yesterday with my messy cables I didnt feel any vibrations but today I feel them through the desk and even worse when I fully close the box up

Start taking things out one at a time until the vibration goes away.


P.S. Your avatar = creepy hahah no offense or anything.
