System from last summer || Updated 6/9 PICS [56k]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Built this one last summer (sig) for around $750 and got the monitor for around $175 refurb. Unfortunately I didnt take any pics of it when I put everything together, I even did some cable management mods that I think came out pretty good for a first timer

Anyways I just picked up a zalman 9700 and as Im planning on doing some OCing Ill try to get pics up soon. However I want to get 2gb more ram and Im torn between getting two more 1gb sticks or replacing what I have with 2x2gb. Thoughts?

Anyway Ill update this later when I open up my case and start installing the heatsink ( came in today and I got it for $45, sucks though that frys is selling it today for $20 but thats my luck )

6/9

Well I still havent ordered my RAM but I got tired of waiting for it so I figure Id post what pics I took

Plus my case was started to get really dusty heh

Sorry in advance if the pics arent too clear, I try

So heres the what the case looked like from the outside, def needs some cleaning...


Open it up to reveal lots of dust


The back....


Side panel



So took stuff out, did some canned air cleanage, and things begin to look alot better

Made sure I cleaned this


Also, one of the reasons why I opened the case in the first place: Zalman 9700!


Its in!




Side fan power setup


And were good!



And while were still on pictures, the cable mod I attempted a while ago, I dont think its too bad for a first time



So overall the Zalman did what it said it would do, temps idle dropped 8 degrees and I guess Im ready to try OCing now
Just need to get that RAM eventually and I think Ill be a happy camper
