New Toys

Its tax time again, and while my x58 and I7 930 have run great and done everything I wanted, it's been awhile since I played with something new and different.

Update:
I could have had this up and running days ago but i started researching sleeving. I purchased some paracord, heatshrink, and whatever else I might need. Here is my first attempt at it:
Sorry I could get closer shot of the connector stupid camera wouldn't focus and the pictures kept coming out blurry.

That's what it looked like under the dash when I was a kid. Radio and TV too! Nice!

Quick update:
I'm still sleeving.

Since I have a semi-modular power supply i decide to rid myself of some of the cables coming out of the PSU itself. I got rid of the sata, molex, and the extra 8 pin CPU. I am working on sleeving the 8 pin CPU and i started on the 24 pin ATX.

I also ordered another 100 ft of paracord cause I don't think I am going to have enough to finish everything. I'll throw some more pictures up with the next update.

Well I ran outta paracord, just have the 24 pin ATX to finish and the PSU is done. Still gotta do modular cables that I'll be using and case fans.

Here's some pics:

So while I wait for the rest of my sleeving supplies to come I got the PC booted up and started playing around. This is where I am at right now.

Nice overclock. Cables are looking good. Did you finish the rest of them?

I am curious to see what these ADM chips can do

I ran out of paracord, so I had to order another 100ft I'll pull the PSU back out and finish it next week.

Soon, I'm stability testing and learning how to squeeze everything out of this. The UEFI bios is insane on this board, so much to tweak.

Cool, Seward is where I live right up the road from Johnstown. My wife has family that lives in Lancaster, so we travel out there from time to time.
