Re: June 2010 CyberPower Power System Drawing w/ Intel CPU

Holy cow!!!! I just came home from work and logged in to see who the winner was and I almost fell off my chair. The last time I won something, was like 17 years ago when I entered a autoparts contest and won some halogen light bulbs. My thanks go out to Legit Reviews. CyberPower and Intel for putti...

Overclocking DreamCatcher AM3

For whatever suckie reason all of my overclocking notes for the 785G & 955BE have gone to the nether world of scattered electrons. :( So it looks like I’ll be starting over from memory, which is a total joke. #-o :rolleyes: Also add to the fact that I’m now running 4 x 1GB of ram as opposed to the o...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Didn’t bother taking pix of putting it together. It didn’t quit go the way I wanted as there is a bit of warp in the case that I hope will go away once stuff is in place. Anyway first off is a pic of the left panel in place showing the color of the chassis. It is not as dark as I had hopped, as a ma...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Now that I’ve gotten DC AM3 to run on to trying to get this together!! First we have the pieces of the puzzle and the start are I did a bracket I didn’t have to remove. Guess the white rivet heads won’t be too bad. Have to wait to see what it looks like on the rear. http://i34.photobucket.com/albums...

Re: DreamCatcher AM3 - THE LAST VERSION!

Well ladies & gents I give you DreamCatcher AM3…………… Not sure what the issue was but it must have been related to the NB cooler. I had taken it out as mentioned before and it wouldn’t boot in the Tech Station. For whatever reason something told me to “wiggle” the NB cooler and BAM it booted up! I we...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Managed to sand down most of the parts yesterday, re-prime, and get almost a full coat of paint on everything. Finished up one can and grabbed the second on and .........nothing. :? Had a brand new can of spray paint without any air. :evil: SO swapped it out at the store on the way home from work an...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Think I may have come up with the name for this system….. “Death Wish”!! Couldn’t find the steel wool I wanted to use on the chassis, but did find one of those “sponge sanding blocks” that did almost as well. There are so many nooks, crannies, and whatnot that it won’t be perfect and the one thing I...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Grabbed the drill and dismantled the chassis………this thing is well engineered and fabricated. Meaning it was a bit more to take apart than planned and had to take it down further than I wanted. Now I need to find what the wife did with the steel wool and sandpaper as she has plans to move with the ho...

Re: DreamCatcher AM3 - THE LAST VERSION!

Guess I’ll go ahead and show you the pix I took while putting it together that ended in the non-boot. Decided to do a bit of wire management differently, usually I put everything together and then try to find hiding places for the excess cable. However this time I tried putting know cables and wires...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Well with the fiasco that was my painting attempt I’ll throw out these pics associated with it. Also managed to do one of my worst grill cutouts so this thing seems to be jinxed! I’m used to working with round stamped grills but Zalman has done “square” on both the side panel and the rear of the cas...

Re: DreamCatcher AM3 - THE LAST VERSION!

Well it seems I’ve just wasted 24+ hours this weekend!!!! So it was leak tested twice over two days (out side the case) then assembled today in the case getting all the wire management and bling snit just right. So I power the sucker up and no video! I can't tell if it is booting or not as there are...

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Total bust on the painting between the humidity, "breeze", and whatevers, back to square one as I'll have to sand and do whatever to undo the mess. :toimonster:

Re: As Yet to be Named Build..........

Finally picked a paint color but don’t know how well it’ll work as it might just look like the natural aluminum. Keep gravitating to white but that has already been used. Going to throw at a few pictures to show that I am doing something (mainly working on DreamCatcher AM3). We have the chassis rear...

Re: DreamCatcher AM3 - THE LAST VERSION!

“Houston we have lift off!” Finally got around to starting the leak testing before cramming it into the SG01. As I had a question about what a leak test really is, I ended up doing what Bubba suggested over in my DC v4.0 thread. Before my entire leak testing was done static……I’d run the pump long en...
