  1. Graphics Card Sponge

    Graphics Card Sponge

    The small rectangular sponge that supports the graphics card. This originally had a ATI Radeon 9800 XT installed and I distinctly remember telling myself ‘Don’t lose it!’. Of course I did, but fortunately I still had the one from the dual 1.8 G5. Just one of those details I guess.

    Very tidy!.
  3. Fans


    The two Noctua NF-B9 redux 1600 92mm fans drawing air from the front and out the back. Really quiet, simple to install and both connected to the Dell 7010 motherboard via a Silverstone PWM fan splitter cable.

    A bolt from the original motherboard screws into a standoff just under the top shelf.

    Top Shelf

    The right side sits on top of the rear fan guard. It’s held in place by a screw that goes through the top of the heat shield.

    Amazing how closing the plastic cover helps to straighten everything out, really satisfying!.

    I replaced the rear fan guard. Excuse the USB 3 dongle, when the right angle USB 3 cable arrives, Ill either put inside or into the top PCI slot.
