    Franklin, I know to said "you solved all the hardware problems"..But what was the problem, your motherboard (last I remember, that seemed to be the problem).. As I am a big-Asus fan, I would appreciate more information..
    Once again, excellent work. You have one of the best looking LL v-series boxes I have seen.. :thumb:

    The first motherboard was just dead. Then I got the ASUS A8N-SLI premium to replace it. It worked fine untill the restart of Windows during the installation. I searched in many topics and fora to find simular problems. After reading a lot my first guess was the memory and thid seemed to be the problem indeed. The memory I used was Corsair CMX512-44000C25PT. I used the help program on the Corsair website to choose this stick and I even mailed them about this choice. This was a fine choice they said, even a very good one to overclock.

    I bought two sticks Corsair sticks that are in the Qualified Vendors list ( Corsair TWINX2048-3200C2 ) and the prolems were solved.

    Last week a journalist of a local newspaper came by for an interview. This interview was about modding, the Dutch championship casemodding and my casemod AlumaxX. Because I wanted to take care of some small details the fotoshoot will be done later, I think this week. These photographs will be better then my own I guess. I will scan the article and place it here. Will be in Dutch, but I will try to translate it. Never expected to get an article in a newspaper when I started modding :D I'm happy with the result of my first casemod.

    Another detail that had to be finished, the cover for the PSU cables, it still was open at the end.

    I absolutely love the tube routing, very neat and tidy looking. You should give yourself several pats on the back for that case. :)

    That's true, the picture's were hosted by a.c.ryan,
    and Franklin thinks that they, a.c.ryan, deleted the pictures after the worklog contest.That's all i know, and i hope Franklin or a.c.ryan is working on the problem.

    Grtz and don't mind my bad english

    Jeez, I really have to pay more attention to the Project Logs. I don't know how I could have missed this one. That is an awesome clean, well-executed mod! :thumb:
