I have spent the last 6 months researshing computers, and putting together a list of parts. Ive started about 5 different threads all on this computers. And now, i have finally made a purchase. I have never biult a computer before except for a frankenstien computer out of spare parts, but it was kindof a different standard being bolted to a plastic paper tray. Does it look like I did a good job?




As for hardware. Its an i7 920 with 6gb or ram. The gpu is a 275. Im getting another one on boxing day. And the monitor is a monster 27 inchs.
I have a few questions. First, is it normal for the graphics card exhaust to be burning hot? And the case has a cord coming out of the front with 2 plugs. 1 says HD audio, which i plugged in and seems to work, and the other says AC 97. Is this supposed to plug into something?

Looks like you did a really good job, Bubbzilla....especially for your first "real" build.

If it's burning hot you might want to up the fan speed a bit.

Usually you can plug only one. It all depends on your motherboard.

Here's the newest upgrade, a Mountain Mods Horizon case. I gotta work on a way to get some more of those cables out of the way. I'll get to that when my proper fans and sound card arrive next week. Right now I only have 4 (not counting the two 200mm fans up top) fans in this thing, and they all spin at different speeds I'm sure my radiators will give me a bit better temps when I get some matching and possibly stronger fans.

Most recent shot, my TRUE is back thanks to Syncroniz3 and his generous donation. As you can see colour scheme isn't something I care much about the case sits closed all the time so really nothing to see. She's my baby and takes anything I throw at her and never complains

Noctua, Thermalright eat your heart out...

Total Poo fan count is 7 with one hidden in the bottom HDD cage which was modded to allow it to fit.

Thanks for taking a look,

EE
