I would not recommend anything related to water when it comes to thermaltake, their units are simply not reliable enough.

I'm getting close to achieving my vision. Just need to replace the monitor on the left and get some speaker stands so I can get them off the desk.

I have some Klipsch speaker stands and these wall mounts I don't use anymore> http://www.klipsch.com/na-en/product...cket-overview/ I had the rears on the stands and fronts on the wall....

New rig Pics; everything is up and running. Windows installed, and about to install the drivers, check the temps, etc. The only issue I've run across is that on this type of mobo its impossible to run crossfire and have a pci slot open for my sound-card. I'm either going to have to run onboard, or see about a pcie alternative. To be truthful, not sure I can even go that route due to the special cooler installed. I guess I could simply run just a single 5870 :nuts: ?

Here's my rig... it's a small case and some of those cables just won't disappear no matter what I try!

caveman-jim Jan 17, 2010 02:16 PM

Just use onboard. They're not that bad.

SSXeon Jan 17, 2010 02:42 PM

Yeah i use onboard, they really are pretty damn good.

Hi - Using onboard with another pc and the sound is terrible. I get this background distortion that I did not get with the pci option. However, I went ahead and took the custom heatsink out and this freed-up one pcie slot and the x-fi titanium fit in there perfect :).

Personal Note: Not sure if its me or the drivers but Catalyst can be such a pain in the arse(personal opinion).

AMDme Jan 18, 2010 06:55 AM

My new build, pretty happy with it...




OverclockN' Jan 18, 2010 07:03 AM

Damn, that is one clean case. :drool:

SSXeon Jan 18, 2010 02:19 PM

VERY clean nice man!

As well you should be. Excellent job man. :up:

Greasy Jan 18, 2010 03:17 PM

Very clean setup AMDme. Seeing this makes me want to dump this lian li for something with better cable routing.

I'm digging the hell out of that Corsair 800D case right now.

Dungeoncrawler Jan 18, 2010 03:26 PM

...agradable!

...nice

AMDme Jan 18, 2010 09:27 PM

Thanks guys, it took some planning but it really came out nice. I have one of the steel Lian Li K series cases but I could never get decent cable management with it, this has turned out much better. I can't believe the options for hiding cables on the Mini P180.

IMHO its the beginning of the mobile Linux revolution. It is basically a small Linux PC in a phone's form. I'm amazed at the stuff I can do and it has replaced my use of my netbook.

AMDme Jan 20, 2010 09:37 AM

Is the Linux revolution starting again?

Actually, its not much of a stretch to label it a computer. I'd take it over a netbook, in fact I did.

My new Sager notebook. She came with an i7 (950) and the mobile 280gtx.

Course you can, just take out the bottom drive cage.

You could probably just barely fit an HD5850 without removing the cage... 9.6" is a fair amount of space for a GPU. Won't fit the highest end or the dual GPU cards, but I think it will fit a card that could be considered 'proper' :)

I don't need any more than I have, I'm not much of a gamer these days. I've played Torchlight, Trine and Audiosurf more than anything the last few months on PC, everything else I've been on my 360 since that is where all my friends migrated. I built this machine more for virtualization and testing for work (I owe it 4 more gigs of RAM actually).

Just bought a Cooler Master HAF 932 case and got the new system installed. Everything looks so tiny in it :lol:. Case has amazing wire management. Even came with a 8 pin extension for the PSU-CPU power because I can't imagine them expecting one to reach normally. The amount of USB ports up front (4) is nice aswell.

Came with wheels aswell which is nice to have on the wood floor.

Such a good case.

I have had mine since September 2008...

The space, cooling, ease of use putting it together, silent nature; is pretty hard to beat for a case in this price range.

Got it for $149 with a MIR aswell of $20 so $129. Cant beat it. I use to get new cases each upgrade I had the Cooler Master 690 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-137-_-Product ) which was pretty good aswell. But I will be keeping this one for awhile me thinks with all the positive reviews it has and how much I like it.
