My System Specs


Yeah, there was a period of time when all motherboard manufacturers were putting those little piezo speakers on the mobo, during which time the case manufacturers decided to save $.50 / unit by not including a case speaker.... fast forward to today when motherboard manufacturers decided to save the $.20 / unit that a piezo speaker costs (plus whatever miniscule amount it costs to solder an individual part onto the board) and now cases don't have them......

Both ASUS (motherboard) and Thermaltake (case) have gotten kudos from me lately for including one. :)
