Diary Entry Log #3154-J8.
I haven't a clue what had come over me to do such a silly job with cable management in the 4th month, but that was another part of the solar system. It is now void of activity, as the planet has moved on, and so too, have we.
All silly kidding aside, have some pictures!
Picked up the Fractal Design Define R4 case yesterday when I returned the MSI Z77 MPower, since I realized my mistake with my power supply cable being loose the other night and thus my old motherboard is working just fine. ^_^
This case was a DREAM to work in! It was very well-thought out, that's for sure! Absolute pleasure. The case looks and feels leagues and bounds beyond the Cooler Master HAF X. I did think the power LED was going to be blue... not red, but oh well, it's still lovely. Installing an extra fan (old Xigmatek orange LED 140mm) in the front spot was a cake-walk. I love the SSD-mounting on the back of the motherboard tray, very well-planned. Surprised they only have two spots for that. I look forward to filling this case up!
Enjoy. (And yes, bad cable management was because of impatience, I just wanted to get it up and running and move on with my life! lol)
At first the white and black dog, Jocko, was a bit scared, but I actually got him to go up and sniff the case and all. (btw, front panel is a massive dog hair magnet!)
I'm telling you, it's a mess.
New case and new desk look pretty professional together. ;o
