ANTEC 900 two Build

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, this is my first time building a computer, and I think it came out pretty decent. Still some stuff I want to do, like clean up my cables a bit and ordered green led fans instead of the blue, but it's pretty much done.

Here is the pre build loot layout.




I used the Enzotech Type-X AM2 Retention clip to mount my Dark Knight. I took the stock screws out of the clip and used the ones that came with the DK for the intel chip. I used some nylon spacers from Ace Hardware instead of metal to cut down on weight. It works, but the threads in the Retention clip, they're plastic, so a they got kinda stripped when I took out the stock bolts, one of them is really bad and barely holds the bolt. So I'm going to redo it soon, any ideas? I've got a few, need to go to ACE and see if they have the hardware I need.






Skyscraper.



And here are some more shots of everything put together. Let me know what you guys think, this is my first build so any tips on cable management or really anything else are greatly appreciated.













I hope to learn a lot from you guys about case modding and hope I can contribute something too.

The 8/4-pin motherboard power wire can usually fit between the graphics card and the motherboard.

Amazing job mate. I can't see the cat in the case which means you did a pretty good job at hiding it .

Where between the mother board and the video card? Do you happen to have photos of this?

I had to take the cat apart to make it fit lol


Thanks for the props guys! I've done a few more small things, I replaced that ugly stove like grill on the power supply and put a different fan on the dark knight, it's pretty sweet, with the UV rings, I put a grill on that too and I it hooked to the switch it came with since I don't want to burn it out to quickly.





I also got rid of the plexi glass on the side door where the fan mounts so I can have more ventilation. I want to replace the big piece too with some mesh, that way I can mount fans and stuff where I I want on it. I also noticed my system was running hotter with the side fan in place, mainly the gpu. I tried both pushing and pulling, It looks like the problem is from the cpu cooler, its creating turbulence with the side fan and hitting door, as you can see from the collection of dust I've taken a photo of(my room is crazy dusty). So I'll see what happens when I go all mesh and try some different fan arrangements, I'm thinking of going 80mm instead of 120mm where the gpu is.



Which brings me to a problem I'm having, maybe you guys could help me. I have this cold cathode green light I want to put in the case, and it's from the same manufacture as the uv ring light on the dark knight. I want to hook the green light to the same switch as the ring light, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I know how to solder and have a basic understanding of wiring, so basic that this has me stumped. Only things I've wired have been on my car.



You can see in the photo that both lights have the same blue box and the same wiring. Hope you guys can help me with this, thank you in advance.

Also, anyone have experience with these fans?
