My System Specs

Default Runnin' Three Rigs

I'm running three 'rigs' right now just for the fun of it. The latest one started here with stuff from the Egg.

Took all the covers off to make it easy to work on.

Put all the parts in...Eureka, they fit!!!...... Note* Need another 5770

Performed some cable management behind the scenes.

The finished product at the workspace.


Another Rig
The case is an ULTRA m998 a real 'tank' with lots of room and a slide out mobo tray.

The parts are in with room to spare. It was long after the build I figured out how to use the 'Power Bar' for cable management. The manual provided no instructions for this feature. Someday I'll take it down and fix all the cables. Gotta replace that IDE stuff with SATA for sure.


The third rig started life as an eMachine 6542 and got me hooked on AM2 and AMD. Great machine and I loved the shape of this case so I decided to 'fix it'.

The case is small and putting all this stuff in here is like putting 10 pounds of s#@* in a 5 pound bag....it don't fit! Need a full modular PSU and more fans. Runs great with the side cover off and a big a$$ box fan blowin' in it.

Well that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Hey guys,

here is mine. I have posted it to other foums as well, so might not be new for you.

It is a basic build, I plan to mod a little bit, sleeve a little bit and add an electroluminiscent
panel for lighting it up.

Anyway, take care.

It's exhausting by looking at the orientation of the fan blades

Hey,

it is exhausting with two GT AP-15's. A bit noisy though, I would have prefered
AP-14 fans...

Yup, it was a typo, which thanks to you I corrected. Fingers can often be faster than the human brain
