My Humble Build ... i7 960 Wraith Cosmos CSX 041 / 300
  1 / 3    
Hello forums ! Hope that everyone is having a great day .
I will admit that this not a new build , but I have been playing with it , and I am lacking funds ATM bored ,
and never posted anything here , so I thought that I would post a few pics . I figured that it would be better
than posting a shopping list ... Next upgrade will be Graphics .

While this particular Chassis is not the Ideal for Radical overclocking , unless liquid cooling
( there I go again , getting sucked in to this sh@t , Damn ) thinking about it ...
it is however Quiet . The Haf 932 was nice , except the noise levels of the large fans .

A different angle ...

I use this fan controller and select the Auto feature to monitor CPU , Graphics , HDD , and System temperatures
and control fan speeds , it works pretty well .

[img]http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll121/darryleshelly/007.jpg[/img]

HDD Cooling Mod , I have also upgraded the case fans from the standard
1200 rpm models to the 1600 rpm models

[img]http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll121/darryleshelly/083.jpg[/img]

The Haf 932 also has better cable management , and with the CM UCP 1100 w P/S
( Talk about tentacles everywhere ) cable management is a real challenge with this
case . I work on it a bit and then put the side cover back on , kind of like when your
car has a squeak , and is remedied by turning up the volume on the radio ... LOL
I figured since I am an Oakie ? I can get away with it . All in all ? she has been pretty
sweet so far .
