New Case TIME! - 56k user warning, many LARGE pics
So I've been mia for the last week, hiding in a dark lab, with a few monkeys transplating my PC into new Mountain Mods chassis. Below is from old to new with subtitles.. in 3d.. okay maybe not 3d, but the best the iPhone 4 camera could do.
New Parts are here!, bottom, cross bars, back peices and 5.25 trays, along with both motherboard trays
Front and back walls
Front, bottom, and back together
Its late, and I had to work in the morning, so me attempts to mock what the inside of the case will look like
The old, thermaltake case, moded to hell, dual rads and fans mounted in angle iron to the right
Close up of the old system/setup
Motherboard in its tray, some of the cards installed, getting cpu ready for a new application of diamond thermal compound
Hardware fully mounted, purging / filling of the liquid system
Tear down and insert into new case
From the left side, where future new pc will be going
PC Powersupply installed, finishing wire up to actual pc hardware
Everything wired up, ya its a mess, powersupply has waaay to long of cables for this case
Case is now in its new home
Ignore the paper, i didnt have any 5.25 blackouts on hand, so tape + paper had to do for the moment.
And thats it, this PC is on the right hand side, the new I7 I will eventually be building will go on the left side, which in the last picture you'll see as the empty side

Wow! I am impressed. What company made the case? And diamond thermal compound! Fancy! As for your CPU, I am jealous! Overclocked to 4GHz! And horry shet! You actually RAID'd SSD's??!! I don't know many people who have had the balls to do that. And I want your video card. I have an ATI Radeon HD 4850 on my desktop, and by todays standards, it is outdated. 8GB of DDR2, running at 1200MHz, I trust that you are running 64-bit OS?
I want your rig! And which Core i7 are you getting? If I had the money, I would shoot for a 960. 4 cores, 8 threads, 3.2 GHz, 8 MB cache...... I must say, that is a sexy processor!
massive delay in reply on my part lol. Not sure on the i7 yet, depends when I get to it and funds avail and what is the best overclocker out there at that time. 64 bit O/S, yes Win7 Ult x64.
Impressive machine have you seen the new 6 core AMD processor heres a link to it
wow !!! nice machine . . . thanks for the link sketch . . . !!!
I wont run AMD anymore after their Quad core complete screw up in production. Also side by side, Intel chips out perform AMD massively still, they've got a lot of catching up to do.
