Thanks for the guide poyyiee. I am going to have to try that because I just love the way it looks! biggrin.gif

Sad news though, today my OS drive failed frown.gif I am going to have to start looking for a new hard drive but with the HD market so expensive right now - any recommendations? I am willing to switch to a SSD but am also okay with a disk drive. Any opinions would be appreciated smile.gif

I would personally go for a small 64gb SSD as the performance increase is amazing! As long as you have an additional mechanical hard drive for storage as the size is quite limiting.

I recently got the Samsung 470 64gb SSD for £60 online just to try it out and I was amazed at the speed of it ...even though it is considered the cheap end of SSD market.

Hey, welcome smile.gif my first bit of advice to you is that it's a risky idea in terms of stability mixing ram the way you have, even corsair are dead against it(something that is all over their support forums in the memory section) back in the older days of computing you'd be fine mixing it, but these days not so much, if you get any stability issues at all, that'd be the first place to look wink.gif

Enjoy your stay, and nice rig!

i understood every word of you're guide dude.. so much that i intend to copy it partially, i might just use sheet metal instead of perspex/plexiglass/acrylic glass though, easier to work with for something that i don't want to be see through wink.gif

yeah, using metal/aluminium sheet was in my original plan..much better/solid build especially if involve nut n screw..but don't have proper equipment to handle with metal at my house, so have to make do with acrylic/plexiglass redface.gif looking forward to what you can make out of it thumb.gif

Try formatting your OS-drive on another pc, I also had some problems with my OS; plugged it in on another computer and deleted everything.
Gave it a new partition and stuff and it worked again. Sometimes drives are a bit of an ass*****.

Btw, I think I'll get my NZXT lights today!

I run the corsair force series 3 - 120g and its rock solid after i updated the fw. Used to have a few BSOD but that has all disappeared. Had it for a year now with no trouble. If you can handle SATA3 i would use this one if you can swing the price... its on sale for 169$ at newegg and includes the bracket.
