When it was brand new Feb 2008 Just unboxed it.


Stripped it down Sep 2009


Micro ATX Cable Management 09/26/2009


Just finished painting 09/28/2009


Lot of overspray, I may touch it up if needed.


Rubber Gromets for cable management holes / Rubber pads for PSU


I'm thinking RED for the side mesh Maybe??


I will try to mount 90CM fans in the middle, back of the drive cages X 2, and no fans in front.


Underneath the top/front panel, 200MM Fan, USB, 1394, etc...


Still waiting for the E5300, HDD, DVD-ROM, & Zalman CNPS7000C


Ultra X3 800 watt PSU needs a to be polished


Back


Through the front bays


Mounted the 92s together for a rectangle dual fan


I think this will pull in some air..


Moved the drive cages up 1 bay to center the inside fans..


Powered on,, updating Windows & Drivers


Temporary Intel Stock CPU cooler, Waiting on Zalman CNPS700C Solid Copper


Extra motherboard bracket, I guess originally it was an AM2 socket only..
Maybe that's why they sent the extra metal socket 775 bracket.

This is a very heavy solid piece of copper, Which will be very effective at CPU temps.


When I installed the Intel Stock Fan Heatsink CPU Cooler it warped the motherboard.
This Zalman back bracket not only holds the copper heatsink in place,
but also keeps the motherboard strait.


I used Arctic Silver Thermal Material remover to remove the old thermal paste.
Followed by Arctic Silver Surface Purifier on the CPU & CPU Cooler.


I used the Zalman ZM-STG1 Thermal Grease - Brush on..
Notice I lightly brushed it on, and evened it out across the CPU, very, very thin layer..


This was the easiest Zalman I have installed, was very simple.


Notice that the 4-pin cpu power cable is run diagnal around the gpu..
This is due to the PSU being mounted on the bottom as opposed to the top.
I'm ordering a 12" 4-pin CPU power cable extension, I can run it up the back side.


Added a 9800GT SSC 650MHZ, Overclocked to 670MHZ
Also changed ram to Corsair XMS2 DHX (Dual Path Heat-Exchange)

Overclocked the Intel E5300 Dual Core to 2.86GHZ


Complete & ready for gaming... CyberMC's New Gaming Rig..
