Now the work log:
Forgot to take a pic of the case before I started pulling it apart. But it is a Silverstone FT02BW.
Case interior after I removed the fans/shrouds.
Drive cage has been stripped. Mounted motherboard + PSU.
The Rasa that I'll be reusing. I used some Koolance 38mm radiator fan mounts to secure the block since I haven't been able to buy the actual mounting.
Must say that the IO shield for this board looks fantastic. But look at all the steel rivets. Those definitely are going to need replacing.
HD7970 all nekkid & sexy. Block is back ordered. Hope to buy two more here soon.
Fusion-IO ioXtreme. 80GB. My gaming and application drive.
Crucial M4. 64GB. OS drive + less important applications.
Titanium HD which will be my headphones card.
And then the trusty Auzentech Prelude for analog 5.1.
Did some testing for a few days. Can we say ghetto?
Yup, that looks secure.
Desk at the moment. I have two U2711's that will be used for some serious eyefinity. Just waiting for the mounts to arrive.
Some pics of the sleeving so far. Spent way too much time on 24 pin. There is a wire or two I will likely fix before all said and done. Also gave the case the MDPC-X treatment. Replaced all rivets and screws with black ones.
The desk is from Ikea. It is rather cheap but it is long enough to fit 3 27" displays easily enough.
