Thanks mate!

I put the HD audio on top, because on my motherboard the pins are a bit more to the top than the bottom, see the pic (its at the bright spot). I think this looks better then putting it all from the bottom. Plus that will probably interfere with my video card

I wonder what to do with that nasty Audio97 attachment that is dangling around though... I have no use for it.




Anyways yeah I'm gonna take things real slow and think 3 times before doing the next thing. I was totally sweating when I put in the CPU I never did that before but it was a piece of cake. Just need to get over it and do it, lol. Next is the cooler!

Wish me luck

I'm hoping your stuff will soon be there for you to put your eager hands on as well
Thank you!

I hadn't realized the audio pins were that high up the board. Learn something new everyday I guess. However if you have the reach, I'd still go from the bottom up as it will not interfere with your card.

Or you could do it like this, again with no interferenceAttachment 139356 and your video card will hide it to the edge of the motherboard then you can zip tie it in with you SATA cables. Nice and clean. As for that AC97 connector, if you're sure you have no use for it and won't in the future, cut it off. I'd rather see you zip tie it to the main cable and hide it under your video card in that routing configuration I have in the pic, so that you have it the future. Oh I hope you don't mind me using your pic. I should have asked first, my bad.

Good Luck!

No problem with the pic mate, why would I object to your helping hand

I decided to keep my own layout though. I taped the cable with black tape so it's a bit more stealthy You'll see what I mean later

I managed to remove that toolless thingy and install the fan controll (HUGE mess of cables, lol). Also installed the CPU cooler, which was surprisingly easy except that I had very little room to turn the lever on the AM3 socket. Also put the optical drive in.

Now the SSD and HDD, and then all the damn cables, lol! And I'll be set (except for software of course)

I suppose I can put the eSATA cable in any of my SATA ports?

Also, should I put them in order: SSD port 1, HDD port 2, Optical port 3 and eSATA port 4? Does it matter? I'm not using RAID.

Great job on the build so far. I'm pretty sure that order does not matter as I have my SATA cables in different ports and haven't noticed any effect, but I'm sure another member can confirm this for you.

SSD and HDD were a piece of cake! Luckily I can power them all together with the optical drive, with only one modular cable. It was tight but it saved having to use another cable for just one item.

Here's the result so far! I'm quite content! Obviously it needs some management still, but whoot!

Well, it doesn't matter much. Ok, instead of doing top of my head I got out the book and looked it up, 5 pages worth. On your motherboard, no, it makes no difference, all drives are treated by the bios as drive 0. You can change the drive letter in the OS and you can change the boot order in the bios.
On both of my motherboards the only difference is the I/O panel has e/sata and the front e/sata is above the video card, they're treated as last served. In Raid it makes a difference, it will tell you which way to put them in your manual. Also on your mobo it looks like you have 2, 6gb plugs, if you get a faster drive in the future remember to use them but right now there are no drives that can keep up with the spec.

Well I thought they would be even better if I bought 2 more 120mm fans and add them in. I put one in the door and I put one in the 5.25 drive bays (zip tied of course). Then suddenly my temps shot up to where they are now. So i took the fans out and they didnt go back down. Ive tried everything. I turned my PSU to where the fan is pulling air out of the case and out the back of the PSU and that actually made it even worse. So yesterday I flipped the PSU back around and reseated my V8. Im using some Antec Formula 5 for my thermal compound. Im going to radioshack today to buy some AS5. My temps have subsided a little. They are at 37,39,39,40. But that is still WAY too high.
Man, whatever you did to your wifes is the right way. Mindy's is running at 27idle, I haven't O/C'ed it yet playing her RPG's it only gets up to 32 maybe 36max. Mine idles at 29 and plaing Crysis rarely goes over 46. I used Arctic Coolings MX-3, it's more forgving if you put too much or too little and it hardens up over about 72 hours of break in time.
I would say it's your thermal interface right now. Maybe you bumped the cooler or it didn't quite spread right, something like that must have happened. You should get something that shows you the temp on all 4 cores, (also you need the Vreg temp) if one's hotter than the others and isn't in Turbo mode then the thermal goop isn't spread right. An i-7 is a massive piece of silicon. I have a video that came with my book but it's not public domain. You seem to have done it right once though, you should be able to do it again.
Good luck and let us know.

The 24 pin I would recomend running behind the mobo. It's long enough.

All ACTIVE new members that have been on regularly and have acted in a manner fitting to a new scout Should get one of these. IF I have missed you please remember I just finished my new novel and I am spending all my waking hours fact checking and fixing my SYNTAX ERRORS.

Man you better have the side panel on when you run that cooler, especially if you have small childerns, or pets or anything not bolted down. I have visions of that navy seaman that got sucked into that jet engine when I look at it
