Haha! It was almost impossible for me to get the side back on, it took me and two friends!

Viper, that looks really good! Nice work!

thnx, it's and old pic though. I've got more cables running through there right now. I also was forced to clean it up because it wouldn't fit :p.

Great job, hopefully this will help some of the noobs out so we can just point them to this thread, well done.

I had the same problem, the cables were too bunched together in certain spots which made it impossible to close the side panel. I was able to clean it up though. :)

Thanks! I wish I made a DIY on how to install a water cooling setup, maybe next time I rebuild my computer I'll do that.

Hey...just had a question. Just built a system, and I saw the external connectors on your GPU are the same as mine. I was just about to hook up my monitor when I saw that the connectors wouldn't be able to go in, and even if I was able to take the connectors off of the cables, and attach the connectors that came with my GPU, I still wouldn't be able to connect the monitor...know anything that could help? (still really new to this)

VGA connector is blue and a DVI connector is white. Which connector do you have on your monitor? Im assuming you have DVI (white) on your gfx card right? Which connector does your cable have?

I have 2 white connectors (I assume it's DVI, the holes are a grid of holes, 3x8, and then next to it is a +-shaped hole with another 4 regular holes altogether in the space between the prongs of the +) that are both the same. I have 2 connectors I can use on my monitor, one, is a white connector that has to sets of 3x3 pins, and then a - shaped pin on their left. The other one is blue and it has 3 rows, 1 and 3 are in line, then row 2 is staggered so it's between, so it looks like this:

EDIT: Dangit, the layout of the dots didn't work in the actual post. it looks like that, but with the middle row staggered to the right a bit so each hole is between the space of the holes on the two sides of the 1st and last rows, and the last one is just outside on the right

Inevri, maybe this will help you explain it better. Which one of these are you talking about?
