I did a remote eject button on my dvdrw, I just used a old reset button from a previous chassis...works pretty well





I'll probably add it to the front I/O panel, just need to find a suitable 'button' to put in there

Most probably 2 of these (posted it before)

smart. I'd cut a small hole in the top or bottom of the dvd drive then if you're not using the LED switch, wire it there. but I guess it'd be kinds pointless over there since it's like an inch away from the actual button.

I removed my GeminiII dual-120mm cpu cooler and went back to the oem intel cooler until I can order my Corsair H50. I cut out the mesh on the top of the case to open up that exhaust airflow, plan on doing the same to the front. Also completely tucked the I/O panel wiring...basically the power/hdd led, power switch, reset switch and usb since I deleted the eSATA and audio jacks.

I'm ordering yet another PSU, the Kingwin 1000w modular, as well. Once that and the new cooler get here I will be sure to take pics of all the new stuff.

I may use that remote-eject idea, and use the Scout's stealth switch for that. Then I can put the mesh panel over the optical drive and hide it.

Your current PSU is already WAAAAAAY overkill for your system. Why the upgrade?

I'm actually not doing it for the upgrade in power. I'm currently using an 880w(1040w max) and I'm switching to a 1000w(1050w), so the gains aren't much.

I'm doing this because the Kingwin is not only modular, but the way each cable is set up looks like it would suit my needs very well. Out of the 8 cables, I only need 4 which would remove a TON of wiring and save me the time and supplies when it comes to tucking the PSU stuff.

EDIT: Plus the MB/CPU are getting swapped out for an AMD 955/DDR3 system, and the video is being swapped out for dual HIS IceQ4+ 4870 cards. So the extra power will come in handy.

ah, makes sense. Oh, and DON'T get the mobo I'm using. I doubt you considered it but the BIOS's suck so there are little options. Max I got was 3.85 24 hours stable but I blame the goodness on my heatsink. The motherboard doesn't have enough options. I had to complain to em multiple times to fix the BIOS too. They stopped putting up with me though.

The Foxconn A7DA 3.0 790GX is the board I was going to order...crap.

Well there's no problems with it other than the lack of support from the company. Today I replaced my 24-pin connector on it. My northbridge also runs CRAZY hot on stock voltages. Your call though.

Mmm Kingwin , they're awesome psu's...and look awesome too.

I pulled out a lot of the unnecessary cables in the front i/o panel, makes it easier to 'cable manage' and all that.

Johnny.dot.exe, I don't know if you are aware but the H50 might not come with an AMD bracket, if it doesn't you can order one from the corsair website, the bracket is free but you have to pay $5 shipping charge.

I had to for mine.

They will be shipping these brackets in with the H50 at some point, along with brackets for 1156, just not sure if they are yet, thought I'd let you know incase you don't get one in the box and panic hehe.
