Had a lot of crashing. Not GPU related though, but hard drive related. I had the same issue when I built it into the other case.

The 2TB Firecuda 2.5 does not have a retaining mechanism for SATA cables with clips. This means if you use a thick one it will keep pulling out of the socket or moving whilst the rig is on. Last night I got really angry and decided to do something about it. Firstly I half stripped the rig back so I could wire up the two Eloops. When I removed the HDDs I noticed how hot they were. Not that this was the cause of the crash, but a hot hard drive is not a happy one. I have only ever lost HDDs when they didn't have cooling. Eventually the bearings go, having being ran hot.

Then I made the first cover panel. This is before.



And after.



I also moved the Firecuda to the outer slot, which makes it sit higher. This has stopped the cable pulling out. If it happens again? I am going to sugru the motherf***er on. It's really starting to p1ss me off.

Next up is making the cover panel for the other side. Then I will move onto the front cover to replace the glass that sits on the GPU. Not had much time to play with this yet, but did knock up an outer template I can change designs on and etc.

The hard drive died last night. SMART as crap as ever. Doesn't tell you until it's too late.

I had two drives left over from the last big PC I had. One was a 2tb, but 3.5. So I stripped down the back side and did a mod to get a 3.5 in the centre channel.

Have lost some albums I downloaded since going ITX, but those are all at my flat so I bought an external shell and will bring over what I lost when I come back.

I had three power cuts the other night, so that may well have finished it off. I will still low level it and stuff once I have what I can retrieve off of it.

PCs eh. Spend all your dough on making it look nice then it kicks you in the balls when something dies and you ain't got no cash left
