Thanks mate .
So, if you have 2 Lexa's, does that mean you will have a half a Lexa more than me?
You could put it that way lol. I actually have 1 1/3 LEXAs lol. Within a week of receiving my original the top hinge on the door broke, NZXT sent me a whole new front fascia (temp display and all) from their Australian stockist.
Good news. Today is a fantastic day, hardly a breeze and the suns a shining. I'm going to clean up the case and get some pics up later today for you all.
LOL at using the grill to clamp to...
Keep up the good work
Thanks blackflag, I was surprised at how sturdy the BBQ was for sawing lol. Later today I will be posting up the final pics, stay posted.
Well guys this is my final update. I have finally finished fixing up LEXA and now it's time for the final glory shots...again lol.
Well here we go.
Sorry about the less than perfect pics . For those who missed the final pics of the original build, they can be found here:
Well that's it, all done. I may post an update later on with OC clocks and temps. Until then...
Tooo...... Much........ Sexy........ Must........Come.........to........Australia........And.....steal.......case!
HAHA, thanks Mark, I'm glad you like it.
i like it alot!
Stunning. I really love the enthusiasm.
Thanks a lot stonedsurd, I am really glad you like it.
It's looking great TB4O! nice work!
My only suggestion for improvement would be not having the wires run over the support bar. Maybe you can slide the wire holders up a bit and mount one to the back of the bar?
Thanks for the comment MM. I originally tried attaching the PCI-e power cables behind the support bar but due to me having a 20cm UV CCFL there it was quite impossible. The wires like that actually keep the disk drive cables perfectly straight also which is a nice aesthetic bonus, I wouldn't have done them that way if I didn't like it .
yeah man, not trying to diss at all. :doh: on the CCFL, my bad. I do like the clear spacing/layout of the wires/ tubes as well.
I know you weren't having a go, criticism is healthy .
Well I decided that I don't want to go to Uni on Friday so I thought I would get my OC tweaked and post up a screen shot for you guys.
Q6600 from 2.4GHz to 3.2GHz @1.38v
Idle Temp = 24-26c
Load Temp (3DMark06 and general gaming) = 36c
Load Temp Fully Loaded (100% on all 4 cores, Prime95) = 44c
8800GTX from 576, 1350, 900 - 638, 1545, 999 (Stable) - 661, 1593, 1026 (Best)(Core, Shader, Memory)
Idle Temp (Core) = 36-37c
Idle Temp (Ambient) = 34c
Load Temp (Core) = 42c
Load Temp (Ambient) = 40c
*NOTE* 3DMark06 run with "Best" clocks *NOTE*
From 400MHz (800 effective) 4-4-4-15 2T @2.2v - 498MHz (996 effective) 5-5-5-15 2T @ 2.2v
No temp data, but feel cool to touch.
3DMark06 score from 11,365 stock to 13,928 OC (some runs I can get 14,000+, just depends).
I am pretty happy with these clocks, not bad for a first attempt at overclocking lol. The CPU definitely has some more headroom and the RAM can go a bit further (I have seen it at 1066 speeds with stock CPU clocks) but this is more then enough for me.
Well this will definitely be my last post for Project: LEXA, I have tidied up all lose ends, posted everything I wanted to and said everything I wanted to say. As always comments are welcome. Time to plan my next mod . Until then...
Tb4o signing out.
Pretty sweet man. Good work, as usual
I'm just tweaking the RAM settings as they appear to lock up my machine after a hefty Crysis gaming session, nothing major, just need to drop the clock by a few MHz.
