    So my wife is a diehard NY Rangers Hockey fan....Her entire office is dedicated to the rangers with every sort of memorabilia possible....so since my first Build this past month went well and her PC died a while back i figured i would build her a new one for her birthday which is this sunday while she was away in ROME....

    i decided to do the Rangers theme last minute and went shopping o find all of the little items 2 nights ago....i think it turned out well....my only gripe is that i should have taken all of the parts to my uncles Auto Body shop to paint them in his Spray Booth(he lets me use the shop and booth any time at night)...the Krylon came out decent but not 100% up to my standards....

    AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition PCU
    ASUS M4A78 PRO Board
    4GB OCZ Gold DDR2 800 RAM
    WD 320AAJS HDD
    Cooler Master Centurion 5 Case
    Cooler master 500W PSU
    ASUS 22x Multi DVD Drive/Writer
    Bytecc Card Reader
    CPU Cooler is the Stock cooler from My Phenom2 X4 940 BE which was alot nicer looking than the stock cooling that came with the Athlon:rockout:
    added a Cooler master BLUE LED fan in the front for some more cooling
    Windows XP Pro 32Bit
    LG Flatron 19" LCD Monitor(my old monitor since i got the 24":rockout:)

    dont mind the painting dust in the bottom i just cleaned it out after i saw the pics..LOL....

    its been up and running since about midnight last night and all seems well....she should be happy....

    case in stock form

    I like the curled SATA cable. Do those come like that, or did you just wrap it around a dowel?

    Otherwise, nice case!

    Looks nice.

    I built my son a system with the same case, CPU and PSU. We're using a DFI 790FX mobo and a 3870 VGA.

    Have you OCed the 7750 yet. With stock vcore and cooler we top out at 3.0Ghz...

    what tops out first though. Vcore or the temperature?

    In other words does it over heat or a reboot/BSOD or something?

    Different team but same colors...could easily be changed...LOL......

    Thanks.....:)

    Why thanks you....:rockout:

    i cant wait to show here this thread....she loves seeing fellow ranger fans....you from NY??

    i havent OCed it yet...i will probably play with it a bit once i give it to her...after what she had prior to this i think its fast enough....she had an old Pentium 3 with 128mb RAM...:eek:

    I would gladly build another if you wanted one....you could pick all the goodies and colors as you wish....i would only ask a little something for my time(i put a TON into this LOL)....you from NY?

    Jets case may possibly be next....Brother in law is a huge JETS fan and his PC is almost dead...i have been telling him i would build him a new PC and when he sees this he is gonna want a JETS Themed one i know it....


    to all those that replied if i missed any Thanks for the compliments.....

    Wow a Rangers PC :O Rangers is my 2nd favorite team (NJ being first... I'm like the only NJ fan that also likes NY :laugh: ) :) I tell you... Rangers have LOTS of potential... they just don't use it :(

    Sweet case btw... you can make a business out of it.... try this in Montreal (here in Mtrl, 90% of the ppl are Extreme canadiens fan xD) and you'll be the richest TPU user xD

    hey man great job with the theme. Looks like you chose a good time now that the Rangers got Sean Avery, seems to be becoming a crowd favorite quick :toast:

    Right now they are hanging on for a play off spot, good luck!

    Hope your wife enjoys it :rockout:
