11/30/06 (plans for mobo have since changed - the P5B-VM does not support RAID, nor OC very well)

got bored and printed out a 1:1 picture of the mobo I plan to get (Asus P5B-VM G965)... and figured out how the XP-120 would sit in the case





took a picture through the PSU opening - the 80mm side fan is basically right against the side of the XP-120 - hopefull it'll be able to fit in there alright on the actual board (you can see the fan clip resting just a mm or so within the fan housing - the actual board will be raised up about 1/4" from the standoffs and the clip should clear the fan then)

OK - so work has resumed on this project - the PSU (PC P&C 510-SLI) finally came today, so I got started on wire management:

first off, I rarely use the front panel connectors for USB/firewire/audio, so I pulled out the entire unit and replaced it with an aluminum plate that I cut out of an extra Lian Li 5.25" bay cover:



then I installed the sunbeam 6-port fan bus, and then started setting up all the fan wires that will go to it:



PSU got installed, and then I cut out a section of the bays to allow the PSU wires to pass through and be hidden:







and the back of the case with the PSU installed and vented PCI plates:

2/12/06 (finally resumed work on the project - really want to get this done, and then will just redo my main rig come late spring/early summer )

card is in - its an x800GTO˛ that will do 570/640 with upgraded cooling, for now its on stock, but I have a x850XT stock heatsink coming for it



now I still need an E4300, P5L2D-VM DH, and 2x1gb DDR2-667 before its actually up and running (going to be using my 2x250gb Hitachi T7K250 SATA II drives in RAID 0 for it)

Looking great, attention to detail (screws) is perfect. Just wonder where everyone would be without a dremel.
