Default mATX Power

Hello all,

I have been a regular visitor here at HWC and I really enjoy the site. I have found some great ideas here, many of which have made their way into my rig. I figured it was about time I posted my build and hopefully it will give some of you a few ideas to incorporate into your own machines. I find the mATX form factor perfect for my needs as it is nice and compact while still allowing for the use of high end components. With this build I was looking for the best bang for buck while keeping the size and noise to a minimum.

This is an on going project and I don't envision it ending any time soon, but for the time being I will leave you with a few teaser pics:





Thanks for looking, more pics along with full specs to come.
