Building a DX10 computer Part 2

Sign in to follow this  


Jan 18, 2007

The case arrived today and I have started putting together the system.

1. Aspire X-Discovery Case

2. Motherboard tray removed

3. Motherboard and CPU in

4. Ultraviolet fan lights

5. Aspire clear case PSU with blue led and custom UV sleeving

6. Asus P5W mounted

7. Core 2 Duo opened

8. PSU in

9. Almost done

10. It's alive!

11. New and old, flash off

12. New and old, flash on

Well the new system is together and booting fine. It took almost an entire day to put this machine together. You'll notice the door opens from a different side in the earlier pics. I had to take that all apart and flip the 4 mounts around. I also put in an 80mm fan in the front since the case didn't include one.
I'm having some trouble getting Vista and XP to install. I think it may be with the cdrom drive I put in so I'm trying an external one. The front fan I put in is also quite loud so I may replace it later. I had to adjust the timings on the ram in the bios since it was being recognized as PC 5300 instead of 6400. Once I get an OS installed I'll play around with overclocking and benchmarking the 8800 GTS.
Back to main...
