    Enermax case + NF7 Mobo (Big Pics)

    Building my new PC, got my case and i've just inserted my new NF7 Mobo.

    So far I have brought
    1 x Enermax Twilight Midi 350W Silver
    1 x Abit NF7-S
    1 x Cooler Master Musketeer
    1 x Pioneer 106 OEM

    3 x 80mm Blue LED fans

    any tips and comments are welcome

    Inserted the Mobo

    Installed the fans (brought from e**yer for £1.44 inc VAT each)

    Installed the Cooler Master Musketeer controlling all 4 fans.
    (Makes all the fans run slower with the slider)

    i think this should be moved to the case and system modification forum, nor do i think you need to **** out ebuyer

    is looking good so far though,

    i suggest cutting out the meshy part behind the fans, it will give you better airflow, will be quieter, and will give better visibility of the LED fans, you can use a wire fan grill http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/product.php?subcat=17 to protect the fans and your fingers

    M8, for the love of quietness, cut the metal out of the fan grills. It's like 5% holes and 95% metal at the moment. What are the ebuyer fans like?

    The fans are great very bright with 3 Blue Led's and Surprisingly quiet. I brought 3 2 for the Case and 1 for the side pannel. Need another for the front bottom so it can draw air in.

    Bit of a bargain for £1.44

    Don't worry about resizing, they're not too big, honest!

    I have the same case, and I will get around to cutting out the metal behind the fans one day!!

    i would recommend resizing them (especially the BIG ones!)

    looks cool though

    how noisey are the fans?

    looking good so far.

    to cut out the fan grills, you could also use a jig-saw or a dremmel type cutter. depends what you got available. Hole cutter is probably easiest though.

    I see you still got the supplied generic PSU. I would consider replacing this with something better (unless you already planned to).

    so, what else you got going in?

    The fans are about 24db not too bad, I find the PSU very noisy, I will have to replace later i think. Need some hard drives now, might go for 2 raptors.

    I've got a very similar setup to you, m8.

    Got the same mobo (no suprise there ), case, fans and Coolermaster Musketeer. I've still gotta paint my drives and sort out the numerous scratches around my case from going to LAN's and stuff

    I could really do with a replacement front panel, that's where the majority of the scrtaches are. Wonder if it would be possible to get a replacement...

    Anyway, looks good so far Just a quick question, where did you get those little clip things to retain cables? I really need some!

    little clip things to retain cables?

    I found these by luck the place I work was going to throw them away, they are great little things, and do a good job.... boy can they stick

    I have 100's PM me you address I will post you some.

    That goes for any one else who wants some for modding their PC's.

    Just loaded the first piccy and noticed both sticks of ram are in one bank, move a stick to the far slot for added performance.
