Welp, 2nd time was the charm.. ebay says it's being shipped!! Went ahead and put the other components together.. Case hardware I got (Rosewill - Challenger) is cheap as you know what.. Case is pretty nice, but the mobo "standoffs" strip out very easily, when you screw the mobo down.. So the board is mounted in there finger tight, basically.. Got all my fans, case switches, cpu cooler/fan hooked up and installed. Just waitin on the PSU.. :nerd:

Then we'll lose him to ACC, round the clock Bancplainin'
I sure hope not. I just got my car painted.....It is pretty bad ass though. It's why I built this monster of a computer, UnReal4 graphics are pretty intense on all the resources. and @M_Nesevitch you can run it on the stuff I sent you, but you'll have to dial some stuff back. When you get settled in I'll help you anywhere I can.

I hate to ask you this......but........is there a "vent" on the top of the case? And if there is, the fan is pushing hot air out....right?

Well, the swapping of HDD had "some" success.. Pcars2, Dirt Rally 2, Assetto Corsa Competizione all run fine.. But NR2003, rFactor, Steam (games) will all need to be reinstalled.. I went a got a small SSD to put a new install of windows 7 on, so it's needing to do it's own -mating dance- with the gaming HDD, unfortunately.. But, I will be back! Jut gonna take a night or so to get it all reloaded..

Installed and still had all my added cars, sol, shader patch.. But the game/content manager no likey..Kept crashing. :confounded: So I just deleted the whole steam directory and started over. :'( Like watching paint dry.. :angry:

I have so many little bugs in each sim I may have to do the same thing.

I'm looking into a new mid tower case, If I can find a wiring harness for my old case would you be interested in it? Same deal as before, pay for shipping and it's yours. I'm heading in a little different direction than a giant mid tower air cooled system. The photo is pretty much my build except I'm running a 240 argb radiator up top not a 140 out back.
