This is how i drain my loop




Stripping time !




And building it up again with a bitspower mb block, and i rotated my EK HF
This is because i forgot i needed to rotate it when the flow comes from the other side compared to my other build.




Rubbertaped the borders, because the coating will come a few months later




How my Raidcard looked like



And how it looks now







Bitspower block




Rubber tape looks grey, but its because of the flash, normally its black

For 10 years i always used the "better" soundcards.
But the last year i used onboard, somehow i didn't like it.

And last week my eye fell on the Asus Xense.
I fell in love instantly !
Specially cause it would fit perfectly in the desk with the chrome look.
So i was already saving some money for it.

But then ....

My PSU died ... And we can't run without it
Xense dream gone

Then i got a wonderful mail from Freddy from Highflow

Going to try to build it in this weekend.
Here some unpacking pictures.

Had some problems switching all the leds in my desk by one Bulgin momentary led switch.
All the leds are connected to a bitspower X-station.

The user "Calimero" @ the highflow forum fixed it for me ^^
I'm to impatient for this work.
He's been busy with it for quite some hours.

With this print i can switch this :

one 5V line
one 12V line
the led in the bulgin switch

This bulgin led is on a current feed now, so switching from blue (3.5V) to, for example, Red (1.8V) is no problem at all, the current will remain the same


So thanks to Calimero !











Adjustable for the bulgin switch

Finally a dream came true




Removing films, i love it !




Eeny, meeny, miny, moe ...




Took me only 10 minutes to switch the old one with the new one.
Changing the old DVI cable to a new Dual link DVI cable took me more time.
Need this cable cause of the higher resolution.




Very useful, i could start using it right away for the pics of this update.




Bling




And time for a little test ..
It really looks fabulous !






Maybe i won't be the last now anymore






Still a lot to configure, but already looks awesome.




And ready to go on again






All i want now is another Dell 17"
