  1. hey guys been a little busy ill have pics of the case and some mods i did for it in a little while battery died on my camera.

     

    as for the case i wouldnt say that i love it but it is the 3rd lian li case that ive owend

    first was the v2100b pluse but i got tired of moving that to lan parties although it was super big and had room for anything i could ever want in it.

    2nd was LIAN LI PC-7B PLUS II BLK its almost the same case as i have know but it has a 120mm fan in back but the mb try doesn't pull out like this one does.

     

    i do like the window on this case and the good thing is is that the side panels are inter changeable between the two cases


  2. i thought about that after i had everything together but i have to take everthing out to mount the HD rack so i will change the fans when i have everything apart. also does anyone know how long the 8800gtx is from the back plate. heres a pic of the new nintendo switch with a orange led light for the power light.

  4. well guys after looking on newegg and almost everything being out of stock i went ahead and got a Thermalright SI-128 and some new fans for my case

     

    Scythe Minebea NMB Silent IC Series 4710KL-04W-B29-V52 120mm 76cfm @31 dBa (1 for HS and 2 for case)

    Scythe Minebea NMB Silent IC Series 3110KL-04W-B39-E51 80mm 32cfm @ 28 dBA (2 for case)

    they were the closest dba that i could find with good cfm and if i dont get good case flow out of that i have 10 ventec tornados from my old case i can slap into it, and if your wondering i had 5 on the side 4 on top and one in back and you could not hear anything when it was on but it was good airflow and it nerver overheated :)

     

     

    i am also returning my 8800gts and geting the 8800gtx newegg is waveing the restocking fee if i dont open the box

     

    also i know its in the wrong forum but while im here im getting windows xp for now but would it help if i get 2 more gigs of ram for 4 gigs while i have the money or wait till i switch to vista to get the extra ram. i plan on keeping this rig for another 2 to 3 years before upgrading agian, hell im still uesing the same 478 cpu that i got when they first came out, ive upgraded everything else around it.

     

     

    thanks for the help

  6. well i got a new hd last night to add to my computer i have a 160gig sata and a 320gig sata both western digital. the new on is also a 320gig sata wd drive that i tried to install last night. the 160 is in sata1 320 in sata2 and the new on pluged into sata3. i formated the new drive and went into the bios to see if it found the new drive and it didnt. i restarted and let it boot up on main boot screen it shows

    cd

    dvd

    it has two spaces like its trying to find more ide divices

     

    160

    320

     

    it loads past this and some other stuff the goes to the raid setup were you can hit f4 to enter or do nothing and it will go on to load windows. at that screen it shows a 320gig hd with a 0 next to it. does this mean that drive is in raid 0 with one of my other drives. i let window load and it shows up as a third hd that i can put stuff on.

     

     

    thanks for any help new drive is going in same rig as sig


  7. well im starting a new case project for a new computer. all of you wondering if im going to finish the xbox ps2 case i am, i pulled everything out last night and started getting it ready for the weekend. but the new case is going to be a lian li v1200b+ case. i will be moving most of the water cooling system over to the new computer and here is a layout of what i would like to do.

     

    dont make to much fun of my mad paint shop skills.

     

    so as you can see nothing is to scale. case will be blowing air from front to back. on the side im going to mount the radiator with a snorkel device sucking air through the rad and blowing it out the top. the snorkel im thinking of making it out of fiberglass. and at the top there is a little intake to suck all the hot air out of the top of my case. as for the radiator i dont know if i want to go with a single 120mm or a duel 120mm radiator and the top exost fan i might use a 80mm ventec tornadow since i have 10 of them laying around from my first case i had.

     

    well what do you guys think. any other things i should do to it


  8. i was playing on the net today at work looking for a new lian li case and ran by this webpage. has anyone bought something from this place? i looking at the v1200b+ case and they have it for 199.00 and newegg has it for 250.00. i guess id just like to know if anyone has had problems with them.


  9. i do a lot of video editting gaming comes second so i would rather stick with intel, but the computer is still about a month away from being built so parts might change and i may go with amd but i never really have had a problem with the prescott. i have a 3.2 the one in my sig and its never gotten over 42c load im my rig. if i were to go with amd what would you suggest for processor and mb?
