I finally found the digital camera, so I though I'd shoot some pics of what I've been doing...

This is going into the Scout, and the other one is going into the HAF (I got them for a steal of a price, so got 2 )





It's an awesome board, I'm really loving it...I wish it was red though, could match the Scout, but oh wells

I won't put the board in till next week...most of the other stuff should arrive then, so I'll do everything together.

I extended the 24 pin atx extension cable...











I still need to sleeve them, to make them look all pretty...I just wanted to make sure it was all okay...unlike the first time, I did all the cables in heatshrink only to find out it just didn't reach...



The finished product should look roughly like that ^^^ I would do sleeving but I can't be bothered, it's not like you're going to see most of the cables, so it's a waste.

Thankfully the 790FXT's layout is soooooo much better than the M2N SLI, it will be easier.

Oh the poor HAF is just sitting there, not being used...poor HAF. I'll probably pull out and swop around the components between the two cases until I'm happy and not bored anymore

Dude...Buy some of this and just solder it where the pins are and slap some heatshrink over those parts. I got 200 feet of that black one. Best prices anywhere as far as I know.

Oh boo, that would have made it soooooo much easier and probably avoided me getting the damn solder on my lip.

It's a pity they won's ship to Aus, but thanks for that...I'll nick down later to the Hardware shops / Automotive shops and see what they got.

Oh, forgot about the location. You can get cheap wire(as low as 0.12 USD per foot) at www.performance-pcs.com. I'm not sure if they ship to Australia though.

EDIT: Here's the link. http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...5f379ac397768d I'd get 18 or 22 gauge. If you get 100 feet+ the price goes down a bunch.

It'll probably be easier for me to find it here locally, but thanks for your effort and help.

Grrr postage, paypal, surcharges and all that other crap annoy me...they hike the price up so much, you don't wanna buy it anymore.

Yeah, fortunately for me Amazon likes Hawaii unlike every other site, so I got free shipping on my wire. Was going to get some really nice sleeving(same kind that naf uses(nylon multifilament)) but the shipping was like 30 bucks so I just bought black wire instead and don't regret it one bit. I love how organized, single-color wire looks.

Shipping is the killer...but you've done a awesome job on your 900 so far, and the black looks good. It helps and saves having to sleeve and heatshrink the entire cable, only have to do the parts you soldered.

The murdermod sleeving looks cool, but it would be pointless in my case because I try to hide every cable...so why go to all the effort to sleeve and make it look nice if it isn't visible...

Thanks and I agree. I loved how the wires looked in this worklog so I tried it out with mine.

The H50 is installed, still at 33c...crap!!!

I think the CPU itself combined with ambient temps, is not allowing me to drop below 33c at idle. I haven't tested under-load temps to see if they're lower than before.

Crap I hate wasting money.

What are you comparing it with? In many situations a cooler will idle at same temps as a much worse cooler but will have much better temps at load.
