Maybe I'll take some pics of my new BFG 6800 OC, as apposed to my old BFG 6800 OC that BSODed and gave me artifacts. Same card, slightly different.

there ya go, ya the pic of the power leads is blurry, i may decide to retake that one and maybe some more pics, even of the vidcard with its cooler on it. I didnt do this to look pretty or anything but effective, also one thing the IDE cables are no longer tied to eachother as i believe i was getting crosstalk on them.

What videsh, that you can link to a single post now? LOL

Airman, it would be easier if you just posted all those single pics in a post in the pic only thread...easier to see.. ;)

I guess I just don't have the patience for cable management, but I commend those who do.



LOL..It does take some time, I'll attest to that. Sometimes, it will take me 2 hours just to get the cables in the right spots where I like them. But that's what I do, and I love that part of building..

It's not that I don't have the time or that I don't try, I'm saying it's damn near impossible because of all the crap I have to plug in for power.

Thanks man...I just took the original bay covers, cut off the clip ins, removed the front bezel of dvd drives, and then glued the bay covers to the dvd door....then attached a screw on the corner, so that when pressed, it touches the button, to open the drive..=)

hehe yeah, it's a little dusty. But the front of the case looks really dusty, and it really isn't. Alot of it is how the light hits the front of the case ;)
yeah, this case is awesome:D

Two things Josh, clean that dust out and get some wire managment going. I thought my wire management was bad. No offense :)

In my opinion Brin, your wire management is a 9 out of 10. It could be better but its better than 95% of other peoples rigs as far as wire management goes. Mine wire management is like a 7 out of 10. Sean Costello's is probally around 4/10..haha just kidding. It is bad though...

haha yeah. With my old computer (athlon XP), I had great wire management. But I just haven't take the time to do it with this baby yet. You guys have inspired me, though. Guess what I'll be doing for the next hour ;)
