    Custom Desk Build - Addons?

    I don't really like computers in desks. They get too messy IMO.

    Custom Desk Build - Addons?

    BEFORE I START I DAN'T KNOW IF THIS IS IN THE CORRECT PLACE, PLEASE MOVE IF NEEDED. Okay, now that is out of the way, in the forthcoming weeks I will be moving house. Which means new desk, I've got a pretty good idea of what I want to achieve. But I also want to make it kinda geeky. I've already had the idea of putting a wireless charger into the desk. But I'm stumped about what other awesome stuff I could build into it. If you guys have any ideas or know of something I could add I would love to know!
  4. Always Higher, I'm running two 780s and they still kick ass for everything I play!

    High SATA power connector

    Really?! I've not had any drives die on me like that, just normal wear and tear as I would call it.

    High SATA power connector

    haha I'm currently at 8 + the SSD. I can ghetto mount another 4 in just need to be able to power them! :lol:

    High SATA power connector

    Really? I might be able to pick one up cheap on eBay or something. Cheers for the help!

    High SATA power connector

    I'm currently using the 4 molex harness to power 4 of my drives. The sata cable with two connectors is for my boot SSD and the 5th WD red. Then the three sata harness for the three 5.25" to 3.5" hot swaps I have in the front. Kinda crazy using all of them. Only reason I'm asking is I've got a few extra drives kicking about that I can throw into the system. Just need more power! Maybe I could just buy a second PSU and run them in a separate enclosure. Maybe a mod for the future.
  9. So after upgrading my file server a few months back I'm using all of the molex and SATA power connectors on my little CX500. So my question to you guys is if you know of any power supplies that can power more than 8 drives (I think that's how many I'm running currently). Now I probably won't just run out and buy one, just kinda want to see if I can get one for a semi decent price which can then kinda help me decide what i can do next with the server. A little more info on the PC. It's an i3-3220 running in a Z68 mob, 24 Pin ATX 8 Pin CPU. No other "regular" connections needed.

    "GEFORCE GTX" LED Not Lighting up

    If it's anything like mine on my 780s it's just one LED that shines down a plastic piece and lights the whole thing up. It kinda bounces the light against the two parts to create the full effect.

    Ghetto HDD Mounting

    Once the door is on I won't be seeing it so I'm not really bothered how it looks to be honest. I have got some green self adhesive carbon effect sheets that I could cover them in. Maybe when I get bored in the coming weeks.

    Ghetto HDD Mounting

    I could but it wouldn't be able to get any air from anywhere. I'm on the hunt for a better case anyway. Due to the door on the front the front fans barely get any air.

    Ghetto HDD Mounting

    You should see how I've got them mounted in my TJ07! zip tied to the back of the mobo tray
