EDIT: btw i just noticed the hack job you've done to get that card to fit........niiiiice bit of top class bodgery what did you use a hammer?

The spot coolers are decent. Three settings for them. Not that loud, air flow is 15/18/22 cfm.

The gpu used to fit with my old mobo, but with this new one it did not, so I used some pliers to bend the metal. =D

My tool selection is limited.

thanks for the info I might have to look out for one of these until my crosshair V arrives.

you should totally add that photo to the ghetto rigging shenanigans

being an Engineer I love ghetto rigging so much there's nothing out there that can't be fixed with either a hammer,duct tape or zip ties.

Nope, i don't have any sleeving to do it with, but in hindsight you've made me wish i'd gotten some while i was waiting for the I/O panel lol! oh and the old one got broken by me being clumsy and standing on the wires for my headset one day, jack sensoring on the headphone jack doesn't work anymore and the mic jack is slightly screwed too, but CM don't know i did it myself, otherwise i'd be £20 out of pocket right now lol
and besides, there was something wrong with the original I/O panel from the get go, see this post in the our thread for what was wrong

I must be very lucky as I have stood on my turtle beach wires no end of times and its still all right....Doesn't help that my rig sits in the middle of my living room


I also believe I have some sort of problem that is due to my front I/O panel but it sometimes causes my pc to fail to turn on i.e no lights no fan no beep no bios no nothing? The only way I can get it to switch on is if I switch off the PSU and hold the power button down for 30 secs then wait 5 mins and then like magic its fine?

At first I thought it was the PSU as my original 350w was running close to its limit so I went out and bought a 600w corsair but it still did it so I RMA'd it twice with no luck. I got so fed up waiting for the PSU so i could at least use my pc I went out a bought a icute 1000w and have been using it ever since.

Anyone else experience this random fault with this case? I know it must be the case as i ran my system for a month out of the case making sure to switch it on and off at least 5 times and it never happened once.

the only thing i can think of is that you have a cable somewhere shorting onto the case itself, have you checked all the cables that run from the I/O panel for bare wires? and also, have you checked none of the motherboard standoffs are in the wrong position in the case? it does seem like you've got a short somewhere to me, time to strip it down and get checking

I get it sometimes but in more than one case. I switch the psu off for a minute then fire her up,i dont have short tho and my cables are sleeved. Personally i think its just one of those things switch related.

this is different. dark's problem goes away when the machine is ran out of the case, that makes it an isolated problem with the case i've never ran into issues with powering up any rig i've had, you have a problem if you can't power up without turning the psu off for a minute

Thanks for the input guys

now you can see why I am confused as I have no problem with chaffed wires or with shorting as I have done a visual and continuity test with every wire on the system including my PSU and also done a resistance check and everything is fine. I have tested the switch also and the points do make good contact with no problems with resistance or anything

Its a shot in the dark but I am kinda swaying towards static build up in the I/O Plate or from the case somewhere causing some interface issues???
but that would at not effect my PSU so even IF my mobo didn't boot at least my lights and fans would still be on.....which doesn't happen

its the strangest thing and it is so annoying as I like to dabble with my clock speeds and ram but its been hindering me achieving 3.8ghz+ on an unlocked x3 450 as I don't like to reboot in case it happens again and messes something up or worse dies completely.

EDIT: I would like to add that this problem doesn't happen all the time just very occasionally but its very embarrassing when it happens at a lan party as it makes you look like a total n00b...which i consider myself not
