lols pwned!!1!elenty

+rep for the terminal block ... that’s the sauce. Wouldn’t happen to have done a guide or started a thread on that?

[edit]

Scratch that ... found the terminal block and your build thread thread. Good times.

lol, I wasn't fighting, that post just kinda pissed me off. no one needs to go around saying anyone's build sucks. but I'm done ranting now.

and K10, you sure do post a lot of math homework around here! I guess I would too, though... i have no idea what kind of math that is. good luck!

sure do, I actually got the idea from another member on OCN (can't remember who, though), but the actual tutorial I used was a series of youtube vids, and here's the link:


they're kinda long and drawn out, but the info in them is great. enigma actually posted a pic of my terminal with an explaination of what all the wires were, which was very clear. its somewhere in this thread...

EDIT: here it is



the right side's 2 lower terminals are the yellow and black feeds from the molex. then, you just make 2 little extensions to power the 2 upper right side terminals. then, use the now-powered terminals on the left side to power all your fans

I'm currently on year 2 of my Antec True Power Trio. I almost want a reason to upgrade to a 850watt Corsair, but I must wait because of budget costs on my hobby.

Well wishes on getting your system back, and up n running again!
Thank you mate Budget is a *****, I know. I spent 50 euro's research cost to find out that there's nothing wrong with my motherboard as I initially thought... now that sucks

I managed to get my old cow back up and running again by reconnecting some cables and getting rid of some power-using stuff I don't need. I don't wanna risk a blowout though so I'm buying a new PSU tomorrow. It's gonna be a more expensive modular one though so that I have a backup in case the PSU in my new PC might die out at some point. It's always good to have a spare and I figured since I need a new PSU anyway, I might as well throw in a few bucks more to get a decent backup version

Would be a waste to let this old baby die out just because the PSU is fail. It's a perfectly fine computer for daily browsing and stuff

I know how you feel about spending money, like on research. Guys like us will spend the money to give our PC's what they need, especially in time of a crisis. The good news is, at least you've isolated the problem. Now just a matter of time until it's fixed.

Troubleshooting tip: Since you have a 2nd system, next time you should try just testing parts 1 by 1 between the 2 systems and try to check off whats working.

Agreed. I would definitely spend the extra cash if its worth while to spend on better quality parts. In the end (I've learned the hard way), those extra dollars (or Euros) go a long way.

LOLLOLOLLOL I feel so stupid. I just now (after re-reading this page) understood your joke.

Enforcer, red & blue sirens, cop talk. In all honesty, last week was a very tiring week. Cisco academy had me on no sleep. Still funny how i totally didnt get it though LOL

And as for "all of those little slits that are PERFECT for zipties to bundle wires??" Yeah, I noticed them, while I was building a terminal block for my fans and routing all my sleeved cables...



cmon man, a little common courtesy please (and maybe research), before you show off how yours "doesn't suck."


back on topic...



I know what you mean about getting the side panel to close, it can get pretty tight. I found that if you lay the case on its side, with the backside up, you can use your entire forearms to push down evenly along the edges where it locks in. And that's awesome your PSU came pre-sleeved, can't wait to see pics!
no need for false floor mod imo

plus i like seeing the PSU but thats just me, not to mention i wouldnt be able to have a waterloop with a false floor mod >_> it limits what the scout can do.

and i didnt say your build sux, i said i think the look of those wire bundles suck ^_^

I like the false floor mod and look at that sleeve job. Good skills there. Courtesy goes a long way in the respect department. Sorry for the double post, is there a way to delete it once its posted?
