I swear the dumbest crap can cost you hours. So I get a wild hair up my but and decide to turn my PSU over since it has a red LED fan. So while I was at it, I thought hey I'll do some cable management clean up. So I get it all put back together. HDD wouldn't boot. Turns out the power came unplugged. No biggie. HDD still doesn't boot. I have a modular PSU, so I'm swapping out power cables, SATA cables. Even put my wifes HDD in just to make sure It wasn't the drive. I even reset BIOS. Finally I thought I trashed the psu somehow. The 24 pin was pulled pretty tight so I figured I broke an internal connection. Finally I went into CMOS to check boot order. Don't know why, just did it. Turns out when my hdd was unplugged, CMOS changed my boot order and made my Seagate external first boot drive. So it would just stall right there. Changed it, voila...Windows boot screen. All this just because I decided to turn my PSU over. Yes I am rambling cause its 2:40 in the freakin morning! lol

They suck at keeping the sun out of your eyes but they are great for keeping the shards from getting in the old eye sockets.
I was snapping a straight line.. lol. Acrylic is not easy to work with, much respect to those that have to deal with it on a daily basis. After talking with a friend tonight, I realized it turns out I had enough to finish the window if I would have turned my piece 90degrees.. hah. maybe I'll make a spare window.

dkev. Your tribulations are scaring me. I too could flip my PSU and get a nice blue led fan. But, then it's more cable management duty... and...

Safety first..."I always wear eye plugs and ear glasses! WHAT! I can't see what you're saying!"

Gonna post some pics of my rig tonight after i have put a fan in the 5.25 drive bays, Thinking of going for a red and blue or White and blue lighting inside the case, since gamersware.de removed the blue set of 20cm cathodes i ordered so had to pick a white 10cm instead. Not sure if i will use it or not, but since not to many uses white i might do it so im not like everyone else.

Found this 5.25" lcd display (http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_5477.html) i might buy since i then can control my media from the sofa without having to deal with keyboards and such, and get info about how hot the Cpu is getting without having to alt+tab out of a game. Not sure how usefull it is since i dont have any1 who have had anything similar here i live before

Lol i have done stuff like that many times but in the end you gain experience from it and are better at troubleshooting because of it. Just about 3 months ago i had my sata hdd's in the wrong ports and couldnt get my macihne stable to save my life. Live and learn.

Well, today I decided to overclock my cpu. I didn't want my cpu temps to go over 55 so that was my cap. I first tried for 3.6ghz, wasn't stable. I went all the way up to 1.5v and it still wasn't stable, and it was much too hot for my liking anyways. So I went down to 3.4ghz and tried for 1.425v and it was stable!!
My cpu is idling at 38c right now with my system temp being 37c. It tops out at about 53-54 which is just where I wanted it. WOO HOO FOR STABLE 24/7 OVERCLOCKS

Behemoth777...you need a better hsf. What you have isn't bad but not really for overclocking. Especially for a quad.

Ya i agree there, i would recommend

Prolima Megahalems 60~70$
Thermalright HR-01 Plus 50~55$
Xigmatek HDT-S1283 35~40$
Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme 55~65$
Scythe Mugen-2 30~40$
Xigmatek Dark Knight 40~50$

Im sure theres better ones out there now, they are released all the time. As far as i remember these were among the best a few months ago.

Yeah I know, but I was planning on getting rid of this setup in a month or two so I didn't want to spend the extra cash. I am going to buy a mega shadow for my next build though. 4ghz, here I come!
