New year update: Well I finally having a working set-up for this project now - it's alive! Went back to the Asus board and used an Adaptec SATA controller card. Everything seems to be working just fine now. Here's a couple of shots to show how she looks with the new blue CCFL's powered up. Nothing original but looks pretty good I think: Now I gotta get cracking and wire up that aerogate controller. Need to do some cable management at the same time too, it's a right mess in there at the moment. I have a nifty idea for that, all will be revealed soon. The thermal probe for the CPU is in place anyway.
