Hey guys, I'm just posting this because I'm so excited that I'm upgrading the main parts in my old computer!

The parts have arrived today and I can't wait to show off the shiny new parts! As soon as arrive home I will open that sucker up and take pictures and upload them here. I'm so very excited!

Edit:
I'm not sure if I could have posted this in another forum or not so I posted it here in General Chat since I didn't want to break any rules.

For some reason I couldn't edit my last post... oh well!

Here are some more pictures of my build!

I put the parts together at night so I didn't cable manage anything when these two pictures were taken, I just wanted to make sure that it was working...

And early this morning I cable managed everything!

is that the coolermaster CM 690 case? hard to tell, but the interior looks just like mine (cm 690) and I love it, very solid case.

Ahhh.... that explains it...

You are correct! :P
I bought it about 3 years ago

Here's outter pictures of the finished PC
I put a 140mm fan on the side door, and I regret buying the fan. It's a bit loud. I didn't read how loud it was going to be on the package when I bought it. Oh well it's not too bad!

hehe I tend to check my fans noise before I buy them anymore, Ive got a lot of fans in my system (im running RAID and crossfire, lot of heat) I love the case. I have the aftermarket side panel with the window on mine however, its actually quieter then the stock side panel. Looks like a nice system you got, and I wouldnt worry about the 3 year old case, that thing was well designed to last forever, with cooling in mind.

Yea I love the case too... I wish it had better cable management options though. But for the price that I got it for, I don't really mind!
Well I saw that the fan was cheap (now I know why) and I was like ehh I'll buy it since I couldn't find anymore 140mm fans at frys.
Where did you get the aftermarket side panel at?
I wish I could crossfire and raid but I don't want to spend more money haha
I need a new usb header on top because my dog was in my room running around and got a hold of my usb cable that I had hooked up at the time and pulled it pretty hard and broke the usb input... :(

really? I thought the cable management was ingenious on it, got all my cables out of the way (most of the extras either slid into the bottom hard drive bay im not using, or behind the motherboard tray and rear side panel) I got the side panel from newegg for like 40 bucks or something like that. I dont normally spend extra on stuff like that, but this is also my show computer for my side computer business, so I wanted it to look nice. I dont have any 140 mm fans, their all 120 mm, one in front, one on bottom, one on the side and rear, and two up top. And I wouldnt worry about crossfire to much, I love mine-but its not necessary, a single, especially a single high end card, will run most games on the market just fine. The extra card does help with physics and framerate, but in every game I play, I can play the game just fine with a single card.

Well I do like the cable management, but it's not as good as on high end computer cases. I'm not saying that I dislike the case, I love it, but I do wish that the cable management was like in the high end cases. I still love the case though!

The side under the motherboard isn't large enough for me to tuck all of my cables here haha, but it's fine how it is right now.
