Picture time






So, i decided i wanted to go micro atx and so i did. I have yet to sleeve the cables. Im still deciding on doing it myself or getting pexon to do it. I will sleeve my old psu as a test and if it turns out good i will do my cx500m and my fans. I will be using paracord. I also got a hotswap bay for some reason that i will probably use in an upcoming server build. Back to sleeving, i messed up the end part near the 3.5mm jack. I didnt use any heat shrink because i didnt have any at the time and it untangled. I am half way finished customizing my cables to make them shorter. I am currently using molex + sata but i hope to only be using sata once i get more new hardware. I am really happy with it so far. Also i enjoyed my haribos, one of the reasons i love using overclockers.co.uk. I need help picking a fan controller also. I will be buying a fan controller last as it is the lowest priority. My biggest priority is to be able to stop using a socket 775 board.

I should have enough for some sleeving soon, and also check out my awesome cpu cooler: It is waay bigger than my stock cpu cooler. It doesnt even fit in my case so i need to cut bits out of my case.

This is my 2nd cube case build, you can fit so much in side them but they take up so little space.

This is defiantly going under water at somepoint, after seeing TTL's review of the XSPC radiator stand that gives me more room to work with inside my tiny case Im also getting an SSD for this in less than a week and then the week after i should be able to afford some hardware

SSD+SLEEVING should be inside in about 1-2 weeks. Im getting a network switch and a vga switch soon also. If i get some Microlabs solo 6C speakers i will probably invest in a decent sound card at somepoint. For now i am going to try and focus on saving up for essentials like cpu, motherboard and ram. Im probably going to get a pentium, MSI Z77MA-G45 and for ram 16Gb patriot viper at 2133Mhz. After that i will upgrade to I7 3770K get another set of patriot vipers so i have 32GB and then either get a 660 or a 670. Just depends how money is at the time. Who knows i may even get a 680. I dont think im getting the XSPC external rad stand when it comes to watercooling as i have found a phobya one that supports a pump and res too. It will be my first time watercooling and i will be overclocking by lots. Will a 240mm rad be enough to cool a 660 or a 670 or maybe 2x 670's and a 3770k?
