Hey all

Two days ago I bought a new SSD for my games and storage for my main system
it's a Micron Crucial MX500 2TB SSD, and the Corsair Force 3 240GB is my C Drive and that was the SSD I used for the past 6 years, since games are getting bigger as well as Simulations and other things I Needed something beefy, and I know 1TB units are cheaper things is I only have space for 2 extra SSD's and 2TB was the minimum of space I wanted so I gave out some little extra and went for the best 2TB SSD I could get for my budget of 2250 euros, I paid 219 Eur incl shipping and yea Netherlands is never cheap but the service of Megekko is damn good that be true

So here is what I had to do to get this 2TB SSD in to my system:
It was kind of a pain to get in so I used a 5,25 to 3.5 incl convertor tray and in there a SSD tray that converts from 3.5 to 2.5 inches and voila it fits
  
 
Cable management in this Lian Li TYR PC-X2000B is a nightmare since it's a design case and around 200were made it has some flaws here and there but for us tweakers all have our ways around such things right :tomodel: As for the 2nd picture that shows the covers I placed to coverup the cable mess and yea I did remove that dust at the bottom
It's that I just made the shot before that lmao
  


After placing them covers back to place I cleaned this side as well and then applied the side panel to secure this part of the system:
  


Then I Decided to clean the front filter and the three 140mil fans , yes their blades from both sides of course
As the left image shows, you can slide in the filter in and out from top side, it's really a handy thought that Lian put to mind with this.
  


So even being a design case, Lian Li did do some helpful idea's with this case, the Lian Li TYR PC_X2000F was the actual production model of this case it has lots of fixes but one thing the F model lacks over the B model is no triple heatzone design, also cleaned the PC side of the case, the second image also shows the three heatzones this case has.
 
Zone 1 is for IO & PSU
Zone 2 is Mainboard & Cards
Zone 3 is for HDD's & Storage
 

After doing this I also cleaned the VGA card, the Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX Vega 64 PCI-E 8GB 2048Bit HBM2 from 2017:

Top & rear views:

 
Display Port & HDMI outputs & angled side view


Two nice angled shots of this lovely card:

 
Here the 20.8.2 beta drivers that I managed to install with the classic and better looking control panel under Win7 Pro x64 + SP1 UK of course:

    I'm a big fan of those type Lian-Li cases, I wish they would release an updated version.

    Hey thanks DanielM  
    it was really needed though, I managed to remove  lots of micro dust particles it was white as snow..

    Overall maintenance is what keeps our systems from overheating or from even worse escalations

    That case has some cool features in it. Seems like they get dusty fast. Thanks for showing off your old school build, it's unique and cool. {<I think}
    The Dino on the motorbike is awesome.

    Hey thanks man, this is my main build it runs all my games  and  apps just fine all the games I do run great at 2560x1600p easily  Unity Engine, Unreal Engine 4 and Vulkan API do extremely well with this setup, despite my CPU's Mainboard and ram kits are from 2011, my Nitro+ RX Vega 64 is from 2017, ut hoping to upgrade next year to an EVGA RTX 3090, that just has to happen, there are moments I just need to do something crazy in my life, did the Voodoo5 6000 and all them other graphics cards, then I'm like an EVGA RTX 3090 can't hurt then either right Blame my mom for the idea lmao
