    OCZ are cheap? Ruhroh raggy :paranoid:

    On topic: Last night my HTPC was giving me grief by not booting and my HSF not spinning. Too the PSU from my gaming PC used it in the HTPC everything worked fine (thinking the HTPC PSU was at fault)

    Assembled the HTPC again with original PSU and put it back in the case, booted up first go, fan spinning and watching movies. :confused::confused::confused:

    hmm, what have I done today.

    I pulled apart my G15 to remove and replace the USB cable with a bigger better badder one. (it got ripped in half coming home from a LAN)

    Got halfway through making the control circuit for my custom PC's external control box and got pissed off with using a prototype board so am now waiting for my bottle of ammonium persulphate to come to etch a PCB instead.

    found out that motherboard standoffs are NOT in fact metric coarse M3 but I can't figure out what they actually are (If anyone can help with this It'd be much appreciated)

    Yesterday I upgraded my 1 x 1TB storage drive to 2 x 1TB in RAID1 for peace of mind. I now have an even dodgier hard drive mount for my SSDs than CM96; they're currently leaning on a tube, held up by the SATA cables :lol:

    Also need to reattach the front bay covers, and mod some silicone fan dampeners to work on my quad radiator so I can reattach the fans (currently the only fans are on the 184 rad, still going fine :lol:)

    pretty much non existant, its 2 of these one down each side with the little wire at the entering the case with all the wires for front panel IO and connected to a fan power splitter with the heads cut off.

    EPS12v 8-pin extension cable so I can route the cable along the side (wouldn't fit through the hole to go down the back).

    1. Pulled a noisy fan off the i865PE chip on the mobo,
    2. Blew the dust out of whatever I could without completely disassembling the thing.
    3. Replaced the CMOS battery with one that actually has a charge (at least I think it does, I found it in my bits 'n pieces box).

    Bow down before my 1337 elxtronic skillz.

    haha yeah, im pretty happy with it its a bit more subtle that the lights in the rest of the system so is a lot nicer to look at, and most people are intrigued by it figuring out of 1/3 of the LED's are broken.
