Well his case is fairly new .
Btw soultribunal, since the Lexa S, and the M59, virtually have the same internal chassis, how are you liking yours so far.

The backstory is, alot of this hardware was either BDay gift, the Board was Techwiki so that saved me the coin there, the Matrix I won here for FOlding contest.
So, thats why there is outdated (but good for folding) hardware there.

A EVGA 260 should be due in a few weeks hopefully, and then the X3 will leave the case and an HX750 will take its place.
So, PSU isn't overkill, but the room is tighter than I thought in that case.

My initial impressions, its definetly a little better than my Apollo (the grommets and wire holes with Fan controller is nice), but I think the metal is a little too thin (my apollo was thicker) and with a high end multiple cable PSU down bottow it does get tight. All in all, I like it for a budget build.

Good airflow when you have the top 140's populated.

Regards.
ST

Haha nice, yeah my side panel sticks out, due to the 24pin cable from my PSU, with larger ones definiately troubles fitting.

All in all nice budget build that's very serviceable.

Yeah XP is very Multi-gpu Friendly. No Dummy plugs required so its simple to setup for folding.

And Silver, I will take better picture once I have a good Camera again, and don't have to rely on my BB.

Isn't Vista/Win 7 multi-gpu friendly as well now with the latest nvidia drivers or am i mistake.

Also, rig looks great ST since we all not every little ppd counts towards helping find the cure to cancers and diseases. Glad to have you back.

Feels good to be back, Vista and win7 are, but you need dummy plugs and such , XP you just keep extending your desktop for each GPU attached AFIK.

Go Little Anvil go!
