I accidentally tried to put my headphone jack into my USB port, which is right next to the aux connection on the front port section of my tower. Shorted it out and the pc wouldn't start after that. So I knew all I had to do was just removed that USB connection and it should be good after that. I thought while I am at it, might as well clean it up. Looks so nice now.
Here is the before
Yeah, these get clogged easy, and bad. GOODBYE
View from the back panel, no obsturctions
My temps now are around 5-10C+ difference than they where before. Very happy, and it looks very nice.
Been wanting to share this for awhile now, ... but have been concentrating on other things.
This is my PC I built two years ago, ... that I am typing on right now.
ASUS M4A87TD EVO
AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition (3.5GHz)
Mushkin Enhanced Ridgeback DDR3 1600 (8GB)
Sapphire ATI Vapor-X Radeon HD 6770 PCI-e 2.1 (1GB GDDR5)
ASUS Xonar DS 7.1 PCI
Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 2.5" 60GB SSD
Western Digital Caviar Black 3.5" 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6.0Gb/s (x2)
Pioneer Electronics DVD-RW SATA Combo
Pioneer Electronics Blu-ray/DVD-RW SATA Combo
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ CPU Cooler (2 BladeMasters in push/pull config)
Mushkin Enhanced Volta 600W PSU
ALL sleeve, crimps, molex housings, molex connectors, molex pins, mounting/routing hardware used was obtained from MDPC - Million Dollar PC -, out of Germany ... ( http://en.mdpc-x.com ). This stuff is light-years ahead of other offerings on the market like "TechFlex" ... both in coverage, & quality.
Anyway, ... I started off with an empty Cooler Master Elite 330 chassis I had, & went from there ...
After removing the front bezel & panels, plus dirty, old fans, ... I ended up with this ...
New 120mm "intake" fan with blue LEDs, of course! (A matching exhaust fan, too ...)
I decided to custom cut/sleeve all wires, cables for nice look, protection, organization, & better airflow/cooling should I begin overclocking.
Here's the front power switch/reset panel all sleeved ...
... now mounted.
... Audio/USB panel, above, too ...
I had to get my mitts on a cute 'lil tool so I could pop out pins before sleeving Cooler Master 120mm BladeMaster CPU cooling fans' cables ...
SATA 6.0Gb/s cables from ASUS ... for SSD & Blu-ray drive data ...
Being that orange is my favorite color, I figured I'd stray from the color scheme & sleeve the SSD SATA cable as such ...
More coming ...
First of all I like the fact that I can post this on the SMD forum.
I joined and im jealous cuz I don't have this long lavish breakdown of installing my own car audio.
