and then some more.....
dont know about the rest but i say go the coolermaster cosmos 1000 case, yeah it big but with a few extra fans it has great cooling and dont forget plenty of room
GREAT CASE.....but my cousin already decided on the Armor!
oops i didnt read the first page, my bad
no worries, m8 !
Well, the first thing I did was removing the back fan and replacing it with one of the two UV 120mm fan. Then I removed one of the two HDD cages and installed a 120mm X 35mm fan at the bottom for extra intake. and finally I used the included fan bracket to install the second 120mm UV fan on the side of the front HDD cage.
So, now the setup is like this... 120mm fan - HDD - 140mm fan.
Later I will post pics....
well, some work has been done... I will post pictures in sections.
two old drives (80gb ide + 120gb sata) and a new (500gb sata2) installed...
cable management... first action!
performed by me and finished up by my cousin.... (its his PC, anyway)
Very nice job. Did you get any pictures of the other side? (Nice case of yours in the gallery by the way).
and a few stickers....
notice the G.Skill sticker on the top....
btw my case in the gallery has none of the features offered by the armor case or any of the modern cases around... imaging that the XazerIII I am using is about 6 years old and it was the super tower of its time.... so cable management was a pain!
The computer looks really good! I'm bet your cousin is the happiest man right now! It looks sweet and nice build!
I only have this picture for now... take a peak
I will have a lot more by monday....
he is over the moon Big time!!!
I kind of feel the same way. I love my Armor, but wish I had the option of the new features like removable MB tray etc. I have the same cable management holes behind the motherboard tray, but mine were done with a dremel by me. But still happy with my decision at the time.
Very nice machine you built for your cousin. He should be very thankful and happy.
so, are you guys going to be seeing who can beat who at your guys favorite PC game now!?!? New hardware FTW!
PES2008 is favorite game for both of us and I win every time.....
now we are going to bench both just to see if one 8800gtx is better than two 3870.....and I 'll probably win again... hahahaha!!!
its the first time he could afford something like this and I know he cannot wait for the first boot up......
Hey, how did the 9700 work with the Maximus?
well, I have not powered this build up, yet. However, in my PC, on which I use the same mobo and the 9700 with an e6420, the temperatures are great.... The picture shows temps on current OC, while on idle!
go for the quad for processor, and 3870x2 for gpu
its too late to go for anything now! maybe for some customer in the near future!
oh its never to late...unless your broke
My cousin is now.... The whole thing cost him about 1600 euros.
unless you are willing to make a donation... hahahaha
