My System Specs


Tiny case is hard to wire! Many pics to follow.

Some tweaks since last update:
i7 860 heavily undervolted by -0.125 in BIOS, LLC off
10 GB RAM (2x4 + 2x1) 9-9-9-24-1T @ 1.5V
XFX Radeon HD5770 Single Slot
My Brother is going to install his own DVD drive

Figures that the day after I took apart my HTPC, my eBay order of an ATI DVI-to-HDMI adapter arrives. A special one is required in order to transmit audio. HiTi generously gifted me a few adapters a little while back but unfortunately they were not the right kind :(

Overview -- I hid the fan power cables underneath them to tidy it up a little. There is barely enough space.

Drive suspension is cool but it may interfere with the last expansion slot, and also makes wiring quite sloppy.

This is where the grommeted drive sits - right above the PSU.

Unfortunately it looks like it's limited to a single 3.5" HDD.
