XD nice!

Uploading pics of cable management now

Also, I've reset my CMOS and am now happily OCing again, pics shortly. I have changed the TIM to ThermalTake TG2 (how good is this stuff? It lopped 2C off idle temps).

I am now running Vista 32bit, and I've also made changes to the final build, first post updated to reflect said changes.

I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu, it won't partition the drive without formatting the entire thing, which is not something I am game to do after I've got windows all set up already. Is it to do with my HDD being IDE and very very old?

Also, my first upgrade (in ~2 months) will consist of:
New HDD (Spinpoint F3 500GB)
New RAM (Ripjaws)
New PSU (Seasonic X-Series 750W)
Win7 Home x64
New KB/Mouse (Microsoft Sidewinder X4/Razer Death Adder V2) + Mousepad

Double post for pics

Pre cable management:



During cable management:




Had to unscrew the fan to get this cable through


Oh how neat!


Oh I see


Final Result:



So it's a little messier than I wanted, but I am happy with how it has turned out. The ATX cable wouldn't squish down enough to tape round the back unfortunately. In any case, it was late (~1130pm) and i couldn't be bothered taping them down, so that is why you can see the cables in the HDD bay area.

TIM application:




Second First Overclock:


EDIT: 3.4 OC

Finally stable at 3.77!! Running 1.44V through it though :S




AAAAANNNNDDDDD... 3.77 is the limit

Now to OC my 4350

Might be buying a Phenom II 550 from a fellow OCN'er for $80 - it's unlocked

EDIT: GPU was quick and painless, went from 600/300 to 760/355

Ran stable with no artifacts for 30 minutes with TechPowerUp's GPU Tool... now to test both overclocks in games!

New GPU! I bought an 8500GT from my friend for $15, pretty happy... unfortunately the Phenom II won't be going ahead, he's not selling it anymore

Anyway, pictures!
