Probably nothing, since it'd make more sense for me to drive around the corner and pick it up.

Sorry, couldn't resist!

Hank is probably sending it so you quit hanging around and get to work.

Probably scaring off paying customers!

Oct. 30th Update

Alrighty, time for a quick update before my most-favorite time of year....All Hallow's Eve!

First of all, some products arrived from one of my project's gracious supporters, Xigmatek.

A Red Scorpion CPU cooler and two XLF-F1253 120mm fans. I had everything else I needed, and I thank Xigmatek and namely the rep Sam for the help!




These, I feel, will fit in just fine with the build. Stay tuned for more.

Nice CPU cooler too.



I've used the S1283 cooler before, and oddly enough inside this very chassis. The rep was worried it would be too tall for the case, but after producing a pic of a previous build based on this chassis it changed his mind quickly.

Let's sleeve the CPU's fan really quick. I have a bunch of UV yellow sleeving, so why not, right?







Looks nice to me! And quiet too. I love the PWM-wired fan too.



Yesterday, I was finally handed the base of the system; the motherboard and CPU. I didn't know what was going in it, but now I know. That's a Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H mobo and AMD Athlon II 240 CPU.



Should be plenty of power for what it's replacing. Plenty. A definite step up from a 478 Celery!

Board looks about the same as my old 780G from Gigabyte, minus some things here and there. My board's rock-solid running in my WHS at home, so I have no doubt this refresh is just fine as well.



Dropping the CPU in the socket real quick and adding some TIM to it for cooler install...



Oh, I also spent a few mins. and cut out and drilled some modder's mesh for backmounting for the front intake fan. It should look just fine and nondescript in the background there... and a different color, of course.



It cut some of the airflow a bit with the fan due to its restrictive properties, but that's also relative considering the fan really pushes some air. It still moves more than enough for introducing fresh air into the chassis.



-------------
Thank you to:

Thanks for watchin'!
