I have almost all my parts I want use gathered up, but I just bought a second GTX 470 for SLI action when Crysis 2 hits the streets and need to get an EK block for it.

When I start this I intend to take all weekend, give the wife a couple hundred for bingo and she'll be gone for two days, then I will have the dinning room table and kitchen to work in

all weekend!!! thats a loong time but a case of beer later and about 24 hours of work it will look amazing i'm sure! I live right next door to the shop i work at so when i was ready to build my rig up my boss happened to be in mexico sport fishing so i took the chance to use the space of the shop where i had a 20'x5' chest high table to work with. It really is soo much better when you have room to get stuff done rather than being all cramped up at a desk or something.

Wow...

Looks like there is a lot of clubs to join:

Obsidian Club (800D)
GTX 460 Club (465)
The Gr33n Club (All Nvidia Hardware)


Hmmm... maybe more clubs once I get around....

It's a large single PCB that replaces all four smaller PCBs.

Ok then just got a few questions then, any word on pricing and what if one of the four goes bad, this means you have to change the whole thing? Doesn't seem logical and economical.

Edit: just looked at a pic of the front panel upgrade kit.

http://www.corsair.com/media/catalog...b3cables_2.png

are those 2 usb 3.0 cables i see there(blue header)? why is it like that? how are you supposed to use that?

http://www.corsair.com/media/catalog...sbdongle_2.png

Do you connect this to then to a usb 3.0 header on the motherboard? Why not just make it connect straight to the motherboards 3.0 header? According to the contents of the box, includes the following, Contents:

* USB 3.0 I/O panel for Obsidian Series 700D or 800D full-tower case
* USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter cable
* Quick Start Installation Guide

so that small cable is a usb3.0 to 2.0 adapter, this doesnt make sense George.

The new SATA backplane is actually much more robust than the existing backplanes and should not fail. However, if it does fail, it's not any harder to swap out than a single backplane would be as it only uses a few more screws and accessing it wouldn't change anything. Plus, it was a better method than using four individual PCBs when it comes to power distribution.

As for the USB 3 Kit...

While we were developing the upgrade kit the internal USB 3.0 motherboard header was not finalized. And the two prototypes we had seen did not meet full SuperSpeed USB 3.0 speeds. So we had two options:

1) Use the internal header and hope that we picked the right connector and pin-out, and hope that motherboard manufacturers fixed the speed of the internal headers.

or

2) Use the rear motherboard USB 3.0 connectors (like Lian-Li and others) to guarantee 100% compatibility.

The reason the USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter is included is that this piece is replacing the USB 2.0 replacement I/O panel for people who have faulty units, and if they don't have a USB 3.0 motherboard they can hook it up to a USB 2.0 internal header and use all four USB ports on the front as USB 2.0 if they want.

We're evaluating an internal motherboard header version.

I purchased a 1/2 inch tubing bender and want to make all my runs out of 1/2 O.D. brass tubing, the bender is a nice Imperial unit, I have already
used it to make some really nice practice runs on Copper tubing

I don't drink Beer, Ale maybe or Bourbon

If the brass will not work then I will get more Copper tubing and straighten
it between a couple of steel plates
