new motherboard = new rebuild

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
EVGA 780i FTW arrives today.

That means a complete rebuild with some serious wire management and relocation of some lighting.

Final build will contain everything in my sig-rig minus the P5N-E of course.

EVGA 780i FTW
Q6600 G0 (1.325 VID)
2 x EVGA 8800GTS 512MB
Corsair 750TX
Seagate 7200 RPM SATA HDD (Took it out of my mom's dell)
Vista Ultimate 64-bit

GOALS:
#1: Have some decent wire management

#2: Push both my CPU and GPU's to the highest clocks possible (on air for now)

Build went extremely smooth. I'll post pic's tonight, although I still have a load of wire management to do.

Sorry it took so long. Here's some pics.


Opening the box from UPS








Mmmmm... Accessories....




Here's the board!





Just for reference, here is what my setup looked like before hand:





Q6600 in its new home:





I'm surprised how smooth this went. Everything went together without a hitch. I still have a lot of cable management to do but I have some 1066 ram coming early next week so I'm going to wait until I get that to do it.



Blurry:




Also going to be moving the HDD up to the top section and removing the HDD cages. I just need to fab up some brackets, AKA zip ties, to hold the intake fans in place.
