I hope you enjoy the log. There's a lot of twists and turns, and a fair share of failures along the way, but that's part of what makes moddin fun.



NP joe.

There is some merit to an LGA 775 system right now. This rig is a screamer by all accounts, and all the parts can be purchased today for roughly half of what I paid for them only a year ago.

As far as the ram, you have a good eye for balance, or at least, a similar eye for it as I do.

I thought about water cooling the ram, but it really really doesn't need it. The stock Northbridge solution on this board dumps a ton of heat (right on the primary VGA), so I could somewhat justify that. The Ram though, that would be a push. I did however decide I couldn't leave it well enough alone. I ended up modding out an older Corsair 3-fan cooler for it. Pretty much purely for cosmetic/aesthetic reasons.

If the weather cooperates, I'm going to try to get some new pictures up this afternoon.



Thank you yabo.


Oh, I didn't mean watercool them, as what you have put on them would do the job fine. just, if you didn't have the Ram cooler, I would just link 'em all up with the orange tubing, just for aesthetics

That would be groovy Joe. I'm not sure it's worth the obstruction to airflow over the mainboard that it would cause though. I did think about using some tubing for wire management.

Hmm.

I also noticed while horsing around that those tubes look really groovy with an LED glowing on one end of them. I may need to fiddle a bit more. This mod is serviceable and in service, but it's not quite [Complete] just yet.

Right now I'm getting settled into the new space. Once I get it set up, I'll try to post some new "shop" pics later.

Thank you Kimo

Christo, Thank you too.

Selling the case. No, I don't think I'll be selling this one. I would have to take pictures of all its "dirty little secrets" then; and then no one would want it anyway.

Honestly, it's pretty to look at, but its really not all that practical. I guess if you never want to change out or service the rads its not too bad, but all in all, well... I'll do a few things differently the next time around.
