Should I install a filter for my side fans?
Front bottom- 140mm intake Top: 120mm intake & a lot of Pizazz!

Side, top & bottom: Low power intakes. Some cheap fans that only cost $9- for two. I was going to give her two of my Zalmans when I overclocked it but she never lets it go long enough, I got it up to 3.0 one day. She got nervous & made me stop!

Back: Exhaust, 120mm pull through her H50.

Top: 120mm W/ 140 adapters Noctua, exhausting upwards, the draft is around 2ft.

Filters: Naw, they just clog up too much, esp when we were near the river. Not so much here, we have an office air filter, HEPA with UV light. Air can dust the vents once a month, vacuum the room every two weeks & take the panels off to clean the fans every 3 months or 3000miles. Your mileage may vary.

We started the office arrangement today. Well, last week cause Mindy took my towers for the living room & I got a bookshelf & a set of drawers. Today, we moved her stuff around & started cleaning up. It's one of those things, all this will change after we get our taxes cause she's getting an L desk but she couldn't work in the space the other way and our chair backs were bumping.

Here's the Scout:
She's facing the window, the printer is on the filing cabinet in front of the desk and the office shelves will be behind her.

Here's my stash ready for cable management:


Here's one of Brutus basking on the rock retaining wall:


@ HubWub: Use Enigmas guide for painting, it's always in my sig, it's the best.
What that other guide suggests is wayyyyy overkill for painting a case, that's more for restoring a car! Sandpaper: 320, 400, 600, 1200, 2400, he's describing lapping a surface, not prepping a case. Wax & grease remover... HA!! When you see oil spill cleanups, look at what they're using >>Dawn<< it's the best grease remover you can buy, if there's a wax buildup on your case.... You're going to sand it, why buy wax remover?? As far as $120- worth of equipment to paint an $85- case! C'mon man!! I re-finish antiques & re-build, re-face cabinets, I don't have $120- worth of supplies in an entire cabinet re-facing job, why would I have that for a case??
Sandpaper, 600 grit wet/dry, $4- at Home Depot, Dawn dishwashing soap, $3- for a small bottle, even if you buy TSP (Tri Sodium Phosphate), the ultimate paint cleaner $5- at my Home Depot, which is known to have higher prices. Now here's the important part. Meguires, clear coat paste wax or even the kind in the spray $12- then use the rest on your car. Microfiber for cleaning & waxing?? Why? Use a clean, soft t-shirt, 100% cotton, can't get better than that. Primer, get the best you can afford, not the best the guy at the store says, the best someone you know uses, then clean, sand, clean, primer, clean, sand (light, just a scratch), clean, paint, apply top coat, apply wax, finish.
Oh!! Tape & paper, use a lot of tape & paper, you can always re-paint but you can never get that paint off the side of your car!

@ Virus: Ok, I have this thermal gun: Fantastic gadget, I think every home owner should have one. Feel a draft, shine it around & if you know what you're doing you'll find the cause of the draft or cold spot or hot spot. Read the details though, 8 inches away from the target the spot you're testing is a 1 inch circle, also says +or- 4 degrees. Know what? You can pay $200- for one of these and still get the same results.
These are not designed for the kind of testing we do on computers. You can't get a focus that fine. On mine there's a switch that turns off the laser, you still get a reading, the laser is just to show you what you're pointing at. If I get 2ft away, the circle goes to 3"! That is not accurate, they are infrared themometers, not laser temp testers. You need a contact tester or a highly focused beam, your system is going to cost less than that!
Save your money or buy a good fan, much more return than one of these, unless you're going into home inspection or buying your own house. You can never get closer to your hot items than the built in sensors, so why try?

@ Shiggins: Wha's up dude?? Hows tricks? I see you down there!

I have tried- Netsh winsock reset
I have tried-win7 repair and it say's (diagnostics service not started), so I went into services and a couple of them were on manual start and I set them to automatic and I still get (diagnostics service not started)
What am I missing?
It goes to the Internet, finds site and waiting for site and stops.
Any ideas?
Dang! Almost forgot this, sorry dude!
Gigabit router, wireless N, with g,b, 300mbps. That right? First, you installed a new router.
Did you uninstall the drivers & software of the old router?
Did you look at how your old router was configured to talk to the internet? Did you run the setup for the Wep, Wpa, Wpa 2 encription?
Did you open Firefox & open your routers setup page? You know, like 192.168.1.1??
Download Master technology.... Is that software or hardware? Mine is this little program: http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/ Between it & my 22Mbs connection I can download a movie in 30 minutes. If yours is software based, you may have to open a hole for it in your firewall.
You don't say who your ISP is, that makes a difference sometimes, do you dial to get a signal or is it always on? Does it have a standby button? That's both your router & your ISP connection device.
Have you tried a different DNS provider, like Google?
http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/

How about: Run / Cmd / ipconfig/all c:\\ipreport.txt
Do that then go to your root directory & post it here or PM it to me.
Also go into..... Oh man, brain just quit, somewhere there's the details on your connection, like IPv4 & IPv6, under IPv6 you need to look at the Toredo Tunneling Adapter, if there's a yellow exclamtion by it, delete that adapter.
Gotta go, I'll check on you tomorrow.

Just take a look at people's pics on here.
Hid as many wires as possilbe behind the motherboard.
And make all wires visible as short as they can be.
Lots of zip ties.

that will make it look it's best.

You need to look at an automotive supply store to get something that accurate, and Harbor Freight doesn't have anything worthwhile in this category.

Thanks BriSleep,
Did I uninstall old software, der, nope
Old router died, could not see how was configed.
Wep, wpa, not using as a wireless, this is a 5 port router with wireless.
Yes I was using the set up page to config, my Wan, the lan was fine, just would not connect to the Wan
I flashed to the newest firmware, still no Wan

After 28 hours, I got a reply, from a dude named Dirtyworks, here is the info he gave me; Asus' firmware has been absolutely terrible for stability. I'm using Oleg's firmware on my RT-N16 and haven't had a single problem. I'm on 1.9.2.7-rtn-r2164 right now. Website: http://wl500g.info/ Downloads: ftp://core.dumped.ru/rt-n/ .
So I flashed to the above 3rd party software,and everything is Great!!
The Wan connected with the same settings that I was trying to get the Asus frimware to do.
Thanks for the help!!! +rep

Got my XFX GTX 460 1GB





having the pci-e cables on the end of the card really helps with cable management and aesthetics.

Thanks to you for finding the answer!! This is why we're club members cause no one person can know it all!

I'm very glad you got it going, believe me, I know how frustrating these things can be. Our Linksys flying saucer router didn't survive our move & we had to buy a cheapy to replace it, now I can't get the printer to work if it's not on USB and can't use our laptop if it's not hardwired. Just waiting for our taxes so I can get a good wireless N!
