    Default New PC shots with good camera (56k warning)







    What do you think?

    The cables will be about 20x better managed once I ship out that 80GB IDE and the 40GB SATA. All I'll have down there is one 160GB SATA.

    Oh, and the X1950XT is about to be sent back as well. Imagine a 8800GTS 320mb in there.

    I think you should remove the wire grille that's on the SI-128. All it'll do is restrict airflow and make noise. I mean, you don't have one on the case exhaust...

    I think I'll do that. I was originally worried about wires getting caught in the fan, but I don't have any wires going over the top. I've been rocking back and forth about taking that off, so your suggestion does the trick.

    Otherwise, what's the verdict on my PC? Acceptably put together?

    A wire grill is a minimal restriction at best and good insurance if you like to work inside the PC while it's up and running. I know this first hand after sticking my finger in the fan of my sister's AXP rig while I was working on it.

    It's not that it hurts (although a 120mm might) but it snapped a blade smooth off and caused the fan to start spinning with a bad vibration.

    Oh great. Now I'm back to teeter tottering.

    I think I'll leave it on since I have to access that jumper to reset my PC after a failed overclock.

    The fan on my SI-128 is actually the most quiet fan in my PC. I think I need to tighten the screws on my other fans a bit. I'll do that today probably.

    I really can't say enough good things about the front bezel removal on a Lian Li. It's so freakin' easy. I love that and the PSU removal thing too.

    Any reason why you have the heatpipes running north-south instead of east-west on the SI-128?

    You might as well get another fan grille for that rear exhaust fan.

    No specific reason. Would I see a performance increase if I was to reseat it the other way? I already run at 30idle 50TAT full load with my E4300 at 2.8ghz stock V.

    Not bad...certainly a lot better than my current wiring job.

    Just curious, though...what fan are you running on your SI-128?

    Ah, thanks, I'll probably pick another one up, then...I've got two, they're real nice fans.
