  • You should paint your optical drive black or buy a black one in the future.
Thanks for your feedback.

*What's wrong with Zalman?
*About modern mobo's I had to find out the hard way I don't change my computer all so often. Last time was a DFI Expert (Socket939).
* Thanks. I also like it.
* Yep. Will probably paint it as it's not so old.

Soon I'll be overclocking this beast and validating.

  • Zalman coolers are often overpriced and inadequate. You can find a cooler that'll perform better for much less. They do look nice though.
  • Yeah, my 939 had 2 IDE and 1 FDD. I want mobos with no IDE or FDD.
  • Getting SATA burner/s and/or HDD's are a great thing to do. I'd upgrade to em just because it's so much cleaner.

well... at least when there little things like a jigsaw and a square hole in the bottom.




As you can see... when you put the bigger psu in there you have to make the hole bigger. This worked fantastically.

I finished my first watercooling flush and I couldn't beleve it... stuff grew in there!

I finally closed it up and carried it somewhere... IT WAS HEAVY AS HELL!

I wish those fan ports on the side panel were over the ram and not stuck under the pci cards... they don't cool much down there.

Do I smell a window mod coming?

Does anyone know exactly what color of paint to use to mimic the black matte on the inside?
post #465 of 28613
Don't use matte finish. Go with Satin and buy it at the auto parts store. The engine color paint and the body color paint is really good quality. Also go to wal mart in the stationary and the office section and get you on of those paper holders made of modders mesh so you can cover that hole in the bottom of the case.. Your gonna have critters living in there if you don't close up that hole. LOL

Will I have to remove the top fan if I get a Dark Knight? Dunno if it's already been mentioned. Too many pages...

yeah, with a Dark Knight, you'll be fine with the top exhaust fan still in. Don't think the top fan on the side panel will still fit though. I've actually been thinking about switching to a DK in a few months. I've got a TRUE right now, and it won't fit vertically because of that big top fan. And I'm sure I'm losing a few degrees with it mounted horizontally and blowing out the top.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone tested their temps with a DK mounted horizontally vs vertically? Preferably someone with an extra fan mounted in the top drive bays? I'm wondering if it's really worth it to buy a new cooler

Oh, good. Dont you get horrible airflow with 3 intakes and 1 out? Also a friend of mine is getting the DK in just a few days, I'll tell you by then. He also has a Scout.

Your front is intake, your side is intake, your top is exhaust and your rear fan is exhaust. Where'd you count wrong there?
