Status: Assembled

I don't think I've told you guys, but I'm building a computer. Or, I should say, was.

Status upgraded to assembled!

I said I'd take pictures, so here they are!

So I unpacked my case, and and started fiddling around.

Oh look, a sock!

Motherboard mounded with the CPU installed

The SSD and disk drive mounted in their bay (the ssd is actually attached at top, not just sitting there)

I've stuck the motherboard tray in the rest of the case.

Screwing around, mounting the PSU in /its/ tray ( there are three removable trays in my case :D )


Inside of the box before mounting graphics card

After mounting the graphics card and putting the drive bay back in

Mounted the PSU bay and connected all the power cables

Oh look! It runs! Also, I am probably going to disable the fan LEDs (hopefully nondestructively), because those are going to be annoying to sleep with on.'

Tomorrow, I will venture into installing windows and drivers!

Oh my god, yes.

That looks epicly cool.

Cool, cool, cool.

If there's one thing I hate, it's unimportant LEDs.

But well done on the build. =D

That's a snazzy sock.

I couldn't stand computer lights. Are you one of those people who never shuts off their computer?

I have pictures that I took of my recent build, but everyone else's PC's are so much better that I feel awkward. :(

I'm not dissatisfied, but it just feels like there's no point.

On to your blog: Everything looks good, but that is either some SERIOUS lack of cable management or a bad angle. :P

@juurian - he is the Guardian. Predictably, he guards my stuff. Ben (my bf) gave him to me :3

@fsx - agreed. If they were red, or even green they'd be livable but blue led lights seriously inhibit sleep cycles.

@taizen - Yeah. Although if the LEDs shut off when its in sleep mode, then I am okay. We'll see…

@acid - I'm going to wait until ChIkEn ships me that drive, and /then/ I'll tie everything down. Also, that PSU has some seriously thick cable sheath. Makes them ridiculously difficult to bend.

Don't do it, he's crazy.

Should have got a modular power supply! It would have made that cable management so much easier. But other than that, nice build!

Cumputer builds are so freaking beautiful to watch. One day, I will experience this as well.

Are you putting Win8 on it?
