    Corsair sent me a gift that I couldn't resist

    I run all the cable through the backplate and connect them to the green extensions

    [​IMG]

    Corsair also wanted me to have their new Vengeance Keyboard and mouse. They won't be available in the states till December

    [​IMG]

    I was even able to get the hard drive cage back in place. Funny thing is, I won't be using any standard hard drives

    [​IMG]

    The main power, CPU 12V and the PCIe lines are already attached, so I only have to add one SATA and one Molex line

    [​IMG]

    The lone molex line is only for the fanbus, which is where my lights and a single intake fan will be controlled

    [​IMG]

    I'll be using this low tac film to protect the backs of the video card and PCIe solid state drive. They'll act as a substrate.

    Then I glue construction paper to the film

    Not sure if I like this or the PET more now lol That case from the FX-8150 is a great keepsake though, I highly doubt many people will have one.

    I cut and glued down the Steel Diamond plate to the cards

    [​IMG]

    And added cold cathodes. More of them coming too

    [​IMG]

    Once again, I always sign my work

    [​IMG]

    I'm hoping that once I get the OCZ software downloaded and installed the drive will perform better. Right now it just blows and so does the AMD chip
