Fri Jan 7 00:31:20 2011 
Finished cleaning the Antec 1200 X58 SLI 3-way GTX 285 Gaming Rig
The E758 motherboard looks brand new,
I use a Mini-Blind vac brush to clean it's very effective.


A lot of dust acumeulated under the top bezel


Here it is all clean, used a vac with round brush,
and the mini blind brush to get the tight areas



The fans were tough, but after a good vac,
I use a Microfiber cloth to get the blades.
Being a Non-Smoker they were easy to clean, No alcohol needed.


Here's everything laid out to be put back together


I call this a Zip Tie mod, if you cant use screws 2 zip ties work well, I just use the head from one. too bad I could'nt use it.
The VREG cooler is in the way.


I probably could have done a better cable management job,
but I plan to move everything into a new case in the next couple of months.


As opposed my prior install of the H-50,
I installed it the standard way, only with fan flow out the back.
I want to see what my temps are vs. the way I had it before.



I left the big drive cages out.
they were just in the way, my drives are in the SNT RAID Cage.
This will open the case up more, and have better airflow.
Not to mention I used 4 thumb screws per fan vs 8 before


The reason for the blue line, is
This fan was making noise before I cleaned it.
I want to see if it was off balance due to the dust.


Everything is all back together, I will test it tommorow.
