You are methodical Acc :)


The Storm trooper is a hell of a case isn't it!? I am doing a build with one right now.


When is the motherboard due in? Looks great :thumbsup:

Looks real nice. I love the Trooper case. CPU should OC good with that cooler.

What mobo are you going to get? :popcorn:

Haven't updated this in awhile now. I have finally received the MOBO last week (Thanks Bosco). Now, I just have to find some time to set the rig up tonight.

New pictures added.

Now before you rail me on cable management... I know it is a mess and haven't had time to work on it yet. On a side note, the Seasonic PSU cables are so short for a bottom mount full tower chassis--it barely reached the motherboard.

The build has come to a halt because I was oblivious to the fact that the motherboard does not have a PS/2 port and I do not have a USB keyboard. As you are reading this you must be thinking "what a fail!" And I concur with you. It was a fail on my part to not have realized that the MOBO does not have a PS/2 port. It will be another few days before I go and purchase the USB keyboard.
