    Default Project: 8core

    So I have gotten kinda lost on my previous builds. Project Karbon kinda just halted, not being tossed aside but still put on hold. Project: Fish tank media pc is also put on hold. I have all the parts to finish it, I just don't have an acrylic bender or the materials to make one, so yet another, on hold. But I think I have one that I might be able to finish in the near future. I think I am going to shut up now and let the pictures do their talking.

    Stock case without fascia


    Opened up a bit

    Top taken off

    Taken bays out

    Taped and marked where to cut on the top

    All went well until the holes for the fittings needed to be drilled. Should have done first maybe?

    Oh well, I compromised.

    The motherboard finall fits. I cut out the other side of the 5 1/4 bays.



    The top put back on with the PA120.3 and 6 Scythe SlipStreams

    Holes for fan cables. (going to be sleeved later).

    My extension/ G3/8 to G1/4 adapter.


    The order before I started on the case.

    2 heatkillers+Bitspower goodness.

    PA120.3

    More Bitspower goodness.

    Tasty


    More hardware pr0n

    Looks nice. I assume dual Xeons from the shared memory bank? What's going in the quad PCIe x16 slots?

    Oh yes. Xeon 5405's. In the pci-e slots, as of now only going to be some 8600GT's, but later on once more money rolls in, maybe something a bit nicer.

    I think Skulltrail fits in there just as well as it does in the damn Cosmos S my buddy has his in.

    Gee, it damn sure took me long enough to find and add the origin of the first quote...

    Nice use of that Dynex case. I've got one sitting over in my parts corner as well. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
