    Update: case preperation & cable management

    Since it is a full-size case. Normal PSU won't have 8pin EPS cable long enough. So I overlooked
    Corsair's packages and took my spare one out. Corsair included one about 4" long.

    This is my spare one


    NZXT Sentry 2, it is capable about controling 5 channel, >15W each maximum. It will control all
    of the fan inside the system.

    and it's installed

    Connecting the fans


    checking out the underside of the 980X

    Then, I shall put it into the motherboard

    it's ready for some folding action

    Update: reapply TIM on the motherboard

    I'm still waiting on another package coming next week to continue on.
    So far, the build looks like this:

    Preperation of the routing of the cables from the beast, Antec TPQ 1200W.


    Routing of the fan controller/fan cables and power cables


    Other parts are waiting here


    The fan controller fits nicely with the styling.


    I got bored and decided to re-apply the TIM on the Mobo. On the back, you have remove those 7 black screws and two other sliver ones on the other side holding on to the mosfets. There isn't a single push pin on this board. Great stuff!


    Extreme Engine Digi+ VRM, 8-phase power for the CPU.


    bare naked. 3-phase each for the DRAM and Northbridge, just located below the 1st PCI-Express slot.


    3-phase QPI/DRAM power with ML Caps just above the X58 chipset. Normally. it is under the heatsink.


    So it got cleaned and applied some better quality TIM.

    Update: New fan and SSD installation

    I decided to install the OCZ Vertex 120GB SSD to one of the four hot swap bay in the 800D. I had
    trouble install at first and realise it was the mounting screw interference. So make sure you get
    some flat head screws.



    Those two screws on the bottom could cause issues. It's installed after all and we will see if this bad boy can perform any close to 250mb/s read and 180mb/s write.


    Also, I picked up a new fan from my local store. As expected, they won't have much quality fans there.
    I picked it up mainly because it also has the red/black colour theme.




    I just snapped the parts together just to get idea how it would look.
