Building the Test Bench!
Time for an update:
I used the nice quick release thumb screws to remove the EX 560 radiator from the TX10. I used two extra pieces from the tech station to build a support beam for it:
Then used some of the accessories to grip it either side so it was stable, but yet also quick to remove:
Then the 2nd R4E board came in:
And a 2nd cpu:
Installed the motherboard - I learned I should loosen the standoffs from the tray a little as they holes have enough movement that the standoffs may be mispositioned. After screwing everything in I want back and tightened it. Then added the cpu:
Then some ram:
Then removed the ram in order to fit the DT 5Noz using the Sniper thumbnuts:
Then put the ram back in:
Added a gpu (9800 gt is enough for the cpu test) and that's it for now!
