Nice! Yeah its a nice case, balanced on most fronts (except it could use better front intake). Nice to see another Apollo kicking around!

yeah, they are nice cases...haven't had any problems...okay, well I did have one, but that could be spinned as ASUS' fault for putting outward facing SATA ports on the front side...it was cramped getting those things in...


edit: and I think that was pretty ingenious of you putting that extra fan in the front

That would be my iStarUSA Mobile Rack with a AeroCool Highflow LED Fan behind it.

Suprisingly enough, there is some airflow even when the door is shut on the case. If I end up getting a Swiftech Cooling setup I'm going to add another one at the front of my computer to increase the intake even more.

Its a fairly cheap upgrade to make on this case, which is nice.

Any Pics of your Setup?

Regards,
ST

mmm...maybe in the future, I'd be embarrassed to put my year old build up and have it compared to the builds people have on this site....

Hey man its okay. This is work within your means. Not everyone has the Coin to do the setups people have here.
If you built it yourself, then be happy that you did.
Mine isn't perfect, but it works.

Trust me,
ST

Nice rig man, but I think I know what you want for Christmas: a new Camera :) . The pictures are a little blurry, probably because of the low light, but I don't know. Nice Intel rig!

Thanks Bo!
I know its not = to the elite rigs we have on this site.
I am happy with it though. Plays the games I want it to play, runs stable, runs cool (CoreTemp Logs have yet to record a Temp Exceeding 42 Degrees).
A second iStarUSA Storm Rack is on order right now, 7-21 days though
and I'm hunting for some flexible Mesh to change out for my Smoked front Bezel.
Increase the Airflow dramatically when I do that.
I am truely shocked that my little ol' Mascool 8WA741 is up to the E8400 Challange, but when the E8600 goes in thats when I WC the whole rig.

I appriciate you looking at it!

Best Regards,
ST

P.S. Camera is my Blackberry.
My Digital Camera has a special cable MIA at the moment so I'm stuck with that.
