I like the desktop
I really love the case, Its my favorite case of all time Very sturdy but heavy cause its steel.
Hm sounds good. I was considering the Sonata III but I wasn't sure if it would keep my parts nice and cool as my Sonata II made my other setup overheat (but then again, it was a Prescott setup so I shouldn't have expected any less). Hope you enjoy your new build
I forgot,its also small. the 8800 GTX will not fit unless you modify the case. here's a pic
It won't fit without modification
Edit: not my case but a member from another forum
*Horrified at the modification's grossness*
Nothin a little lovin with a dremel can't fix. lol
I want an antec SOLO .... its so quiet and im getting new gear as well... but no case yet...
I know what you mean I love the case so much i didnt do any modification on it. Dont wanna mess with the black glossy paint job Normally, i would use my dremmel everytime i get a new case but this one is off limits
lol sladesurfer what do u think about mine? (DAMN NON MODULAR PSU )
Its not silent the PSU fan is so loud >_<
i have to say that board looks terrible for cable management. the 24 pin and sata's are very odly placed
last time It was the case and now... the ..... motherboard? *Eyes twitching*
I think he's showing sympathy for the pain it must be, to get good cable management, with a power arrangement like that.
I know that But u guys just pressure me to buy new stuff
EDIT: where's sladesurfer...
Haha. Alcapone's 3DMark06 thread does that to me. lol
Oh yeah slade, how did u get ur camera flash not to whiten everything out?
Heh you guys never doubt how a case can affect how silent a machine is...
My 3 120mm fans and a pci slot cooler inside my other system-
Intel 915 @ 2.8
Antec Smart Power 2 450watt
2 15k scsi 320 drives
After I added the sound dampening to this machine and now its being used as a server its a dead whisper... That case he is using is much quieter than this old case, and he has much less fanage, let alone missing 15k drives... I don't know how many of you have heard those in most cases, they are like industrial warehouse loud. Mine aren't even mounted in suspension, and that really helps.
Looks good, I actually contemplated buying that case when I got my Lian-Li.
*Which by the way is also pretty darn quiet even with my 2 1950's *zalmans*
I know about that, I temporarily used a mousemat in my old case and it negated my PSU noise
New cpu E6420 @ 3.8 and new cooler Thermaltake V1
This chip is sooo sweet
nice work man, I think you should go with the 9700.
Edit: ah that v1 looks pretty.
you put my computer to shame lol. Ive been to lazy having to work now and all.
Sladesurfer spotted on another forum. I too would want a window for my antec SOLO... a perfect square one~!
I think that is going to be one sweet system when your finished.
Beautiful case,how big is the rear fan? And hey.. ASUS
Exeptional cable management!
