Yup. I'm fixing the problem right now. Should have everything up by the end of today
had the same problem, in 6 days I used 1500 MB of bandwith. Now I use imageshack, and it goes pretty well.
I really hate that you can only upload 1 image at a time unless you pay for more credits. I've decided i'll just make 3 or 4 photobucket accounts and spread my log pics across those
ok so i have a questions seeing as i have folded under the pressue lol. Does it appear that there will be enough room to mount a 120.1 BIP to the top 120 mounted fan? Ive got one of those high performance panflos thats about as thick as a BIP and i dont know if there will be any clearance seeing as the multifunction panel is pretty close to the top of the case...
I'm not sure yet. I think there is but i'll check again. If not then the fan is going on the top of the case and i'll have to mod the scoop
UPDATE 8/26 CABLE SLEEVING
Thos update may not show it from the pictures but alot of work was done. Sleeving cables SUCKS!!! Lemme just get that out of my system. I must admit the overall effect if gorgeus though. The pics dont really show the quality either.
$30 bucks of sleeving goodness.....and it was the wrong size so I had to take it back. I was too frustrated from 30min of extra driving to take more pictures of the sleeving. So there
A better picture of how the case looks right now since my last few were fuzzy.
A picture of the back motherboard tray. Notice the molding on the right and the foam on the upper left.
Bottom rack with more foam around the "PSU Float" and inside of it. (just to darken it up a bit because of the ammount of cables that will be down there. It'll make it look less messy.
My rig as it stands now
$50 well spent on a SLEEVED 480w PSU. Cant remember the brand but it isnt terrible. Pluss it's quiet.
mmmm look at the cables
I was takeing a molex of this Antec fan that came with my case and noticed the hinge. Cool idea. Too bad i need the smaller fan molexes
My test setup as i was saudering everything (did i spell that right?)
That would be my zalman 4 port fan controller with 2 5-9volt switches
Itty-bitty fan molex
Heatshrink on top of the sauder
First ever sleeve job. Turned out nice
1 fan down....5 to go.
Everything i sleeved before i ran out of sleeving. I still have 3 more fans, 1 more extension wire, 1 audio cable, 8 ccfl's and their power leads, and the pump that hasnt gotten hear yet.
All of the audio/usb/power headers are in yellow.
The 3 fans i completed
Testing out lighting for my case so i can decide how to sleeve my cathodes.
And the chipset block i ordered.....or at least the AMD version.....uggggh.
Nice sleeving, looking good so far
Thank you. It has to be one of the worst jobs ever.....
UPDATE 8/27 MIDNIGHT MODDING
Last night we had a loss. I was drilling out the holes in my BIP and the effin drill slipped . So now there will be 3 radiators instead of 4. This will be fine though because i was worrying about the pump and whether or not it could pust the extra rad.
ANyways. I did manage to get some modding done last night to my neighbors expense (listening to the air compressor) so here it is.
This wasnt looking to good
And this needed to be removed for the hoses on the second Radiator.
Some of this will save me from massive cleanup later which is very hard to do with this case.
You get the idea
Everything had to be covered because the paxmate is not removeable.
Came back with my 4inch and grinded her smoothe.
A little bit of this, a little bit of that
Girl shake that thang, keep crackin that back....haha i love snoop dogg. But really it looks alot better
see where i'm going with this? prolly not. I have to remove part of this fan things side for cable routing and a uv cathode
This time the entire thing gets covered
This actually took twice as long to do as the cutting itself
and the other side will get the same treatment.
My modded cutting disk
This stupid gard was keeping me from finishing the cut so it had to say byebye. I'll put it back on later.
Looks pretty with the molding
A few more shots
now onto the other side. Rough cut
Cant tell much of a difference but it will make a huge one when i start wireing and try to figure out where to stick all of those cathodes
That sleeving does look real nice...very professional. It looks so good that it surprises me that it's your first go at it!
I'm also diggin' the padding that you're laying around the case. If I might, where did you get that stuff? Looks neat.
Thank you about the sleeving. I got the padding stuff from Voyeurmods.com. They sell it the cheapest out of all of the dealers i have found. It can also be found at Frozencpu.com as well as xoxide.com. It's relatively cheap compared to painting. At only 12-14 bucks a pack (frozen cpu is 19) you can have your whole case covered. I bought 2 for this large case and i have more than enough. If i wanted to, i could cover every square inch.
SOrry in advance for the pictures i didnt realize the flash was off.
What i've been waiting many moons for.
The little box inside the big box
I was a little dissapointed to see the swiftec label because i specifically ordered the D5 because of the changeable speeds. But, as it turns out, it has the speed switch anyways.
Getting prepared for the start of another all-sleeving day.
Here is the pump cable. I used a little extra Solder on this one.
Sorry for the pic. It's the pump sleeved.
be carefull with razors
This one even gave me a nice scratch.
1 fan down, 1 to go
all fans finished : )
Started with the biggest set of cathodes. 1/2 of them done in one sleeve. I used 1/2inch chrome and was able to leave the molex's on
The next 2 i did together as well. I did have to take the molex's off these though because i used 1/4 inch sleeving. Or maybe it was 1/8th. Meh who cares.
I also did 2 more cathodes by themselves but the pictures sucked so here is one of everything i sleeved that day. Or almost everything....
marking the pump placement on the underside of the case useing the mount and a sharpie
Holes drilled. That black mark is the marker not a drill slip.
Another sheet of Pax that i can finally put in since the pump mounting holes have been drilled
figured out my flash.....and PUMP MOUNTED!!!!
I started plumbing and now you can see my first problem.
I think i can remove the bay above it by drilling out some rivets so i think everything will be fine
Hey hey, looking good
Nice sleeving - looking forward to seeing the WC loop in place
The sleeving indeed is looking good.
Ehrm... with the wc: Can't you use like a 90° whatever-this-thingies-are-called? Damn... shouldn't have been smoking that much when I was 15... this really ********s up your brain for a long time. /me being 21 now
Nice work on the sleeving Fozzy
