You say that like it's a bad thing.

got all my parts in, completed the rebuild

new H50, Seasonic 8502 and Case are all put together

really happy with the CM 690 II, let me do a wonderful wire management job without modding the case. might post pics if i get ahold of a camera. looks like it had some minor shipping damage, but its not enough to be worth shipping it back, ill just deal with it, its not really noticeable.

having a problem getting the board to post. Discussion thread here. hope my new PSU isnt bad....

PSU is fine, removed board from case... all my troubleshooting has solved nothing

wondering if RMAing the board is necessary at this point...

9 Months Later:

RMA COMPLETE!!! ITS ALIVE AGAIN!!!

my trusty netbook has served as my main computer in these past months and has done a wonderful job, but im so glad i have something to tweak and OC again. MORE CRYSIS!!!

i think im gonna let the AS5 set up a bit and do a fresh win7 install. then im going to OC to the sky and play MOAR CRYSIS!!!

with my new PSU i will finally be able to Oc my GPU and possible hit 4.2ghz or more on my CPU!

YESSSSSSSS IT LIVESSSSSSSSSS!!!

i got my board back from gigabyte and i put my computer back together and it booted into windows on my first attempt!!! their repair is sealed up by a small spot of adhesive glue and its on the back of the motherboard, so it looks just like the day i bought it. i went back to OCing again as soon as i got this board... XD i told myself i would let it run for a bit and let the AS5 set up... but i couldnt resist. temps are good and i usually dont enable LLC, but i have and it seems to be working really well so far. keeps voltages steady, you will see why in a bit

SOOOOOOOOO happy!!

my new case is looking sexy. the front panel USB and buttons are working. it seems to be allowing excellent airflow

my H50 is setup as a top mounted intake and i have another intake fan up front and an exhaust fan in the back and my GPU/PSU are also exhausts. the H50 is doing great! i have my E8400 running at 4.4ghz (489x9=4401) right now!!! 1.360v @ 489mhz FSB and my ram is running at 978mhz. i also OC'd my 5770 to 960mhz core and 1350mhz memory, but that was just something i threw together in 5 mins. (need to remember how to enable unofficial overclocking in MSI afterburner lol) i did spend some time on my CPU OC, tho it was fairly simple because this CPU is such a great OCer, specially on this board! CPU only hits 45*C in Crysis and the GPU only 66*C!!! im averaging 30fps (thats the minimum i consider playable) at Enthusiast level Details on 1680x1050!!! no stability issues in Crysis, and i did a bit of stress testing and the CPU did ok. this isnt a 24/7 OC, i just wanted to see if i could play Crysis on it and it does completely fine.

my new Seasonic M12D 850w isnt even lifting a finger to do all this! the PSU is barely warm to the touch while playing Crysis Warhead with everything OC'd to the wall and im just blowing through crysis. my old PSU would shut down from over heating during any sort of stress test when i tried to OC my 5770... im so glad i jumped on this PSU when i saw it on sale. my whole rig, even OC'd probably doesnt pull 350w so this thing is getting great efficiency numbers while lazily pumping out clean, stable voltage. ive never seen my board, CPU, or GPU perform like this and having this rock solid PSU makes me much more comfortable about doing all this.

Windows 7 seems to have much better memory management than XP. i had to pop out my 2x1gb Corsair kit because the 800mhz kits dont have a chance at hitting 978mhz, even after i loosened timings and upped the Dram voltage... my Gskill sticks are 1066 sticks so they are underclocked right now, but still running stock 5-5-5-15 timings @ 978mhz. Crysis used to BSOD on Enthusiast when i played on XP (i know i wasnt actually able to use DX10 on XP) cause back then all i had was 2gb. windows 7 seems to offload a lot onto the pagefile and really reserve the ram for more intensive programs. i love XP and still run it on my netbook, but windows 7 is doing great with gaming nowadays

im completely blown away by my PC right now. im so happy with what is able to do for the small amount of money i have put into this relative to the other rigs i have built for friends or seen around here lol. i really just need a GPU upgrade (GTX560 or something similar) and an SSD (my HDD is kinda slow, its a WD blue so i get some lag when games autosave, etc.) and this thing will run beautifully. i will have a new job in a week or so and i hope that will enable me to do these upgrades. i will probably do a clean W7 install too. maybe i will be able to upgrade to SB when they are re-released.

thanks for listening to me ramble, im just happy to have a desktop back. this build log also serves as a log for my own reminiscing purposes so i can keep track of what i did and when

thanks again
