    Closed Accounts Posts: 12,421 Anti


    So atlast some of the stuff has arrived form overclockers. With their shoddy stock controll every time i have orderd it was all in stock, but by the time it was procssed parts are out of stock. No harm in that, the pieces i ordered were popular, every time i rang " oh part should be in tomorrow or the day after " 2 months later the parts are still out of stock......

    But ive managed to get the case and mobo and cpu cooler shipped and its arrived today. For the time being this will be a 100% aircooled pc untill i can find a place which stocks everything and gives me time to measure the inside of the case to see if it is possible to fit 2 x 240 rads..

    Should hopefully have some pics up later on this evening.

    AWESOMESAUCE :D

    pics pics pics :D








  • Yeah i was following that, but lost interest when the muppet starting postign pics of his basement and his bet down looking boord. Looks pretty decent though.




  • New build is up, am posting on it nao :D

    So far im using a E2140 @ 2.6ghz and ideling at 23c and 27c load. Have a load of pics and will upload them tomorrow.




  • So, overnight i ran the gpu and cpu [email protected] clients and decided to turn all the fans to their lowest.. Still running this morning. Cpu @ 31c Gpu @ 55c... Im shocked how cool this chip runs and how quiet the case is. Granted the Antec tri-flow fans i stuck in are noisy as hell on full pelt, but the Scythe Zipang cooler and the nzxt fans are all inaudiable even at full pelt !! Will try get pics uploaded now.

  • And here they come !!

    The case all opened up. A real joy to work with. Super high quality, no rough edges.

    Dont mind the mess ;)

    A very stealthy grill from that angle.

    Lots of room inside for a matx case. You can see where the board stops where the standoffs are. These came attached to the case.

    Hard drives slide in easilly, and have a rubber strip on both side to stop vibration. There are 2 fans moving air from side to side just under there the 2 hdd cages are.

    A view form the other side.

    The side panel off with the standard nzxt case fan which is super quiet and the antec tri-flow/tri-cool from a antec 900.

    The first problem, the fan controller is a little to big to fit into the floppy drive. Out with ze dremel !

    Apart she comes with 2 screwes and grind away ! about 2/3mm had to be shaved off... Hope i dont plan to change it, as its not comming out again !

    Motherboard went onto the tray with no problems at all. All the holes lined up with the standoffs perfectly.

    The motherboard on the tray with the 2x2gb Geil black dragon ram installed and the 2140.

    Black mobo pcb and black ram pcb... Rawr sexeh :D

    4kffetshf8dtlxd6l8.jpg

    Now the the G92 8800gts installed. Shame about the green pcb :( But oh well no window to see it through so who cares ;) As you can also see the sata ports are blocked completly apart from sata 1,5 and 6. But you can still use them with the 90 degree cable.

    The Scythe Ziapang. Tis a big auld thing, but the finish on the base is perfect not bowed at all. Apparently its silver plated too... And this push in screw things is an absolute nightmare to get in. I thought the board was going to snap in half.

    How to apply thermal paste, it dosent matter if its a dual or quad.. This is the only way it should be applied...Ever.

    Lights test !

    Plenty of room to work with right? errr... no. The Zipang takes up all the room here. Forgot to take pics of it though :(

    Oh so messy. But its got no side windows so i dont mind for now. I think ill shorten alot or the front panet stuff, and just cable tie the rest.

    574754ud4sysqupzavui.jpg

    Bright enough considering the curtains are open.

    yp72vas13pz1k6y19f6.jpg

    Will change all the fans for red led's when i can find a site that sells decent ones.

    sxshceb895ncdt7c1kez.jpg

    The only window in the case. As i said before needs lots of tidying.

  • I like, bigger than expected but sits grand on the desk. Top stuff.




  • nice 1 bud ,looken good




  • Nice, That board is an animal! Better FSB than a lot of full ATX boards




  • Nice job m8, its a little bit bigger than i imagined, but nice temps.




  • And if you notice, no more dodgy photo's ;)




  • Whats the volume of the case? I wonder if Conzy's custom full ATX SFF case will be smaller... That would be embarrassing :D j/k

    ***EDIT***

    Conzy's Case : 26.45 litres
    Anti's NZXT Rogue : 45.32 litres

    Oh snap!

    P.s Its highly possible that I ****ed up somewhere but I think I got the maths right :p
