Tier 2 Build (lots of pics!)

Wink  Tier 2 Build (lots of pics!)
Alright,, finally went for my first build. Was a lot of fun, but also a little stressful (I was super careful with everything, didn't want anything to break etc). The most stressful was attaching the stock intel CPU cooler. The push pins require more force than I was comfortable with, but after a while, I figured it out. I'm surprised that even with the stock cooler, the CPU temps are 30c at idle, and only get to 55c at max load. My first try at cable management was pretty poor, but the CM 690 II was VERY forgiving Smile

Here are some pics:

Bought 2 extra LED fans, but didn't notice they don't come with 3pin to molex adapters, so I didn't install those yet.

The micro atx board looks so funny inside the CM 690 II Tongue

All done Smile

Thanks to MB!

PS: I highly recommend Newegg TV's series of how to build videos, especially part 2 (putting it together). I did an external build and was happy I did. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_56kyib-Ls
