Thanks. Plus I have at least two backups for some of my HDs. One at home and one off site. I do use some of my older HDs for backup though.

Initially I tried cold cathode tubes -- what a colossal waste of time and money. I had a bunch set up throughout the case interior. Of course, they wouldn't reach to the inverters which I had fastened to the backside of the motherboard tray. No way was I going to have those ugly blue boxes strewn about the case.

So I bought extensions -- And this is the rant part. They DO NOT work. Any length over six inches or so causes the cold cathode to become inoperable. Long story short -- wasted a lot of money for nothing. Why do suppliers sell these things when they know full well that using them is a no-go? They could at least place a disclaimer in their description of the item in their online catalogs that cold cathode tubes will NOT work with extension cords. Oh well. Live and learn.

All in all it's been a fun and educational experience. Spent waaaay more money than I intended to but what the hey -- at least now I have a kick-ass system that will run with the best of them.


Happy Computing,

Bo
Sweet ass build there bud. Nice job.

Here's a personal peeve of mine. Why does everyone call cold cathode florescent lights "cold cathodes"?

That's like calling the engine in your car a piston, or an aluminum block. "Yeah, I had to have my aluminum block repaired today". I know, everyone does it. As I said, it's a pet peeve of mine. They are florescent lights containing cold cathodes, or UV lights containing cold cathodes. Just saying "cold cathode" does not provide enough information to tell you what type of light they are (UV or florescent).

Of course, some people call a computer a "hard drive", but that doesn't make it any better....

That was my "grump of the day".

rickm000 - Thanks very much. Yeah, get with the program and pretty up that case of yours -- it's a lot of fun, but it sure does drain the wallet in a hurry...

I see that you have one as well. Those folks at MnpcTech do good work, that's for sure. Good luck with the water cooling effort.

Will be starting to order parts really soon for my first build and I will be buying a Corsair 600T case and of course the side panel.

First I am getting a Corsair H70 for cooling the CPU and I want to do set it up so that I am taking air from outside that case and blowing it into the H70 and another fan taking it out of the H70 into the case as it seems in that type of setup. I also want to replace all the fans in the case and for the H70 with ones that offer better airflow. Money is not an issue on the fans, and neither is noise. So if the fan is loud it's now sweat of my back. Basically I just want as low a temps that I can get for the CPU, and I want to keep the case cool and as dust free as possible. So please let me know what would be great choices for replacing the fans in the case and for the H70, keeping in mind, that I want to add fans to the side panel so I can blow cool air from outside the case and onto the two 6970 GPU's I will have.

I was going to get the side panel that Corsair offers for the case but I have seen in this thread full panel windows with fans in them, that is something I would love to do as well but I have no clue how to do so.

Thank you all for your help it is much appreciated.

Yeah, probably not the right neighborhood to infer my distaste for Star Wars I guess... haha.

I don't think I'm gonna let it stop me though. That case is just too freaking sexy.
