Cheers for the Advice mate!
As it's comng nearer to the point where I will be assembling the rig, I thought now would be a good time to recap on whats actually going in it, so here's the details:
Motherboard: Abit IP35 Pro
CPU: C2D E8400
Mem: Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 4gb (2x2gb)
Gfx: Inno3D 9800 GX2
PSU: Corsair TX650
Opt. Drive: Philips 20x DVD RW DL
HD: WD Sata II 250gb
2x 120mm fans pulled from Antec 900 modded with red LEDS
Tygon 1/2" Clear Tubing & 1/2" Barbs
Laing DDC1+ Ultra with XSPC Delta Top
Swiftech Micro Res (temporary till I get a Aqua-Computer res)
Danger Den MC TDX 775 CPU block
XSPC RS240 Rad with 2 x Blackfire4 Kameleon Fans (120mm)
Primochill ICE coolant (with blood red dye).
There are still a few things I am waiting for to progress the build, the 6mm white acrylic for the front panel is the biggest hold up at the moment. I have ordered the arcylic cut to measure and asked the supplier to polish the edges for me (lesson learned from previous build
). Then I need to cut the relevant holes for the DVD RW, front fan and switches.
I couldn't find a DVD RW with an all chrome bezel to buy, so I might just spray my existing one. It will never look as good though. I want the front panel to look clean and uncluttered, in fact thats the look I want for the whole of the exterior.
