    Thanks I'm happy with it, made a couple of mistakes that I would do differently next time.

    I would crimp the wires next time and not solder but I couldn't really afford the crimps and tool at the time plus I would push the paracord into the body of the psu and then tie wrap the lot instead of using heat shrink on every single cable.

    Yeah it's worth crimping and doing it the heatshrinkless method - but it's a bit more expensive (and harder on the fingers haha).

    You've turned out a decent result though :D

    Yours looks awesome, I like black and blue themes and getting water cooling into such a small space is great.

    Mine hasn't changed since install really. I put my rad up on the HDD cage and that is it... wish I had the creativity some of you guys have... I don't have enough patience either. Still, as long as cables are hidden, WC loops always look cool. :D

    Bit of a throwback but I built this recently with some cheapy bits a few guys from Bit-Tech have given/sold me.

    [​IMG]

    Asus A8V Deluxe - Recapped it due to the historic 2k's cap failures.
    4800+ X2 (after hours of bending pins back straight, works despite missing one!)
    4GB Corsair DDR1
    6600GT
    Creative X-Fi
    Coolermaster ATCS case ( Yes I know Xp sticker!)
    Thermaltake PSU - Recapped.

    Runs well, need to dig more games out for it!

    Correct. Cable tied like a pro*.

    Look at those sweet ass golf ball fans. That is turbulence to the max.

    What a sweet Coolermaster case! I remember lusting after that case back in the day... I bought my Lian-Li though instead (which I still haven't been able to part with... 12 years later :lol:).

    And now for something completely different...

    [​IMG]

    Yes, I am a heathen with an AIO, and the GPU module is notably missing which means I'm on onboard graphics as well! Shock horror!

    Was just cracking it open to pop the USB dongle for my mouse/KB back in to the internal port (why does every motherboard not have this?) so took the opportunity to snap a quick photo, just to make you "real computer" types cringe :D

    Specs:
    A motherboard
    A CPU
    Some RAM
    A drive
    Another drive
    A power supply
    Some other stuff

    And now a USB mouse/KB receiver

    Fit an MXM module damnit!

    I do like that HP workstation. A lot easier to open up than an iMac!

    I nearly did a couple years ago and even went so far as to put in a couple "best offers" for 680Ms on ebay, and then it occurred to me that I'm an idiot because I don't game on my PC, have little aspiration to game on my PC, and it was just shiny for shiny's sake.

    The only game that I was excited about that wasn't available on console was Planetary Annihilation, and look how well that turned out. I cancelled my pre-order, fortunately.

    This forum is, generally speaking, a bad influence.

    I thought the DVD drive had died and raised a call for a replacement - the drive came to life the next day. The replacement had already dispatched, so swapped it anyway. I've not had issues since, but then I've been using an external BD drive on the rare occasion I need to spin a disc.

    Common issue, I take it? I've had it for a bit over 2 years now and other than the temporary DVD drive hiccup, it's not skipped a beat.

    If any of the Z1s under your care have a K5100m that's being neglected, you know where to send it :D
