In my usual rush I did the paint job and despite the humidity it didn’t do all that bad. It seems Krylon not only makes a gloss and flat black but also one called “Satin”. Guess that would be their name for Semi-Gloss?????

Anyway the color looks good but the cutout was rougher than I thought….just hope people will be too busy looking inside to notice the rough edges. [-o<

The texture and uneven cutting of the hole saw is a lot more noticeable than I would like. Now on to getting the lex and figure what to do about fans.

On another note, for S & Gs I decided to take a look at the HSF for the build. It is a Zalman CNPS9900-NT, which is the latest incarnation of HSF started with the 9500 series. The big difference here is instead of a fan in a large finned cooler the fan is placed between to sets of circular fins. And it is one huge cooler. I just can’t get into condo style of cooler yet and may run a few degrees warmer because of it. Also being the –NT version it is a burnished nickel instead of copper and has a green fan.

Here are the usual shots of the box, front, side, mounting hardware, base, along with some shots showing fit. These were taken before the Trident memory came in but the earlier DDR3 is the same height. The 9900 was placed in the socket without the proc in place so I should be able to clear the mosfet cooler with issue……..fingers crossed! :)

This’ll be it for a while until I work with the mobo assembly on the tech station to see if I need to flash the bios to get it to work with the 1055T. Also want to get a little overclocking in with DC AM3, the main delay however will be the wife coming home and honey do catch up time! :axe:
