I'm really liking that black and white color scheme a lot. How are those fans? I almost bought them, but at the last minute, I changed my mind to NoiseBlocker ELoop fans.


Very clean...makes me want to dust off my G5 and finish it...maybe this winter.

That TIM application, my OCD is killing me. Grain of rice is more than enough, that X is way too much, and wont cover the die very well. No offense to that one article, but I work in a repair shop, and about the size of a grain of rice is more than enough.


The dying process looks good for a single color, definitely. Were there any problems with the contacts after the dying process? I don't expect there would be, but I'm curious.


Any plans for custom wiring or sleeving, beyond the dying process?


Nice to see something unique again.

I find that funny because my previous desktop only has GSkill RAM in it, and it never had a single issue. I'd be more inclined to recognize an issue if the motherboard has a different voltage listed on the RAM slots than what the RAM is spec'd for.

Even if you get new RAM, check the voltages, it may be all voltage and your current RAM could be fine.

When you say "crashes at the BIOS screen," what do you mean by crash? Is the machine resetting, turning off, something else?

I would agree with Mr. D., you're issue could very well be the CPU.

As far as the static discharge from the case, it likely means your front panel (power button, USB/Firewire) is not properly grounded. This is well documented with Antec cases, and the design and front panel wiring was updated in production so the issue doesn't happen anymore.

I think that at this point, its all just nit-picking. Yes, hot air rises. Yes, recirculating warm air thru multiple cooling solutions isn't ideal. I think, however, the numbers speak for themselves.

We're quibbling over the direction of a fan when this guy got his HDD and SSD running under 30° while INSIDE THE PSU CASE!

I think this is a job well done - regardless if this is his first build or not.

I'm not saying it's a bad job, I'm just pointing out that it really isn't idea. As far as the HDD/SSD temps..they're less than 2" away from a pair of fans. If I had a fan that close to my hard drives, the temps would be the same.
