Build Your Own Computer – Pt. 2 – Fitting the PSU…

September 4th, 2008 · No Comments

How do you get a square peg into a round hole? With great difficulty!

This is what I found today trying to squeeze this puppy into the case.

Although the Antec case has excellent routing and ducting to allow cables to move around the case without disrupting airflow, getting the bugger into the PSU cage is a feat of endurance!

On the plus side it’s incredibly solid and fully grommeted to eliminate vibration. Plus it has oodles of power for all the fans and the processor so this will all help keep the speed up.

The pic above shows the two raptors installed and the cables looking a little messy at the moment.

I’ll be tidying it all up tomorrow when the motherboard finally arrives…
