    C70's are crazy roomy, removed one of the drive cages and dropped in 140mm Akasa Venoms on every fan mount. Looks great, shame the machine hasn't been turned on in months :laugh:
    This thing weighs a tonne, and is very very solidly built.

    thanks for the feedback, kindly appreciated that comfort me in my future choice :D as i said once my build is named DW-Shiro (after the character of Deadman Wonderland : Shiro) and Shiro means WHITE and her outfit has some hint of red ... :D my Carbide Spec-01 is cheap (but pack quite a lot for the price) black and white (replaced all the fans with some AF120/140 and a JetFlo for that purpose)
    yet the black of the mobo is not so problematic, pupil and the circle around her iris, if you remember the Avatar i had once. (well ... mildly futile but you know ... according the thematic to the name is also important :D )

    and i don't see myself seeking for a ASUS TUF Sabranco for the sake of the white board :D

    as for the side of the Alumic ... i am dazzled how the blue side glow due to the monitor light and the finish of the surface (if i did understand correctly the black side is "speed" and the blue is "control" ? )

    edit: on a second look it make me want to scream

    "thunder, thunder, thunderROCCATs HO!" :roll:

    i think i need a retro'testbench like @HammerON goodies here today :D

    Yep HTPC, takes a SFX PSU and I have a Corsair H50 for it. Its going to be tight. Literally

    ASRock Z97M/ITX/AC so I should be able to OC fairly well

    I am rooting for you!, Though I will say one recent one I built (G3258 and Z97-G55) sadly only hits 4.4ghz with 1.33 volts on an Antec Kuhler 650. Its a great performer for a 1080p machine I built at request on a budget.

    I bet your going to have an awesome HTPC with that bad buy especially with how Tiny it is!

    well the CPU auto OC of the MVIIR is not so bad ... 4487.17 (4.5 rounded)

    welll .... i have a 650w PSU a H60V2 (ok with a hell of a good fan on it) and a power hungry GPU ... judging how many review crash at 4.8 and remain kinda stable at 4.7... i might ... be tempted to try 5.0 but not for now :D
    on the next upgrade : case and some other upgrades in that way ;)

    Well its sitting on the test bench. Driver install was perfect and W7 install done with a EVO SSD. Just need to strap on the H50 and start the OC.

    With my little shop heatsink on it I hooked up the Watt meter and it pulls 56w at full load 50c. How cute

    I guess Ill start a build log rather then muck up this thread

    Ready for a 3rd monitor! Once I have more cash I'm going to build a little stand for the monitors so they don't have to be on books

    my TV(which is the screen of "Salvager Mk II" cf: system specs :) ) is on a cardboard box :)

    next project well not my(future) pc atm...but i will have to do a mITX build for my mother :D
    base
    AM1 board (ASUS mostly)
    Athlon 5350
    SG05BB300 or 450 woops i just realized i took the same choice a @Jetster xD
    4gb DDR3
    slim ODD (well they have a lots of DVD
    1-3tb hdd (7k2 SIII ) no need for a SSD
    win 8.1 (yuck)

    and as it seems that all my retailers are in league to make me fail to get a white case ...(and also since i finally decided myself for a mat black and red motherboard ...) i think i will settle down for a Black/Red thematic my new signature kinda give out the 1st choice... the 2nd would be a 760T Black if i get a bit more at the end of the month :roll: (the fans will still be white LED AF120/140 and JetFlo for a reminiscence :D )

    Does your mom rly need a whole desktop PC? I mean I don't know if it's connected to her work, but won't she be more comfortable in the line of something less than a kilogram, that she can pop in her bag and take around? Like ultrabook or something? Just suggestin'.

    Some people just enjoy having a desktop. I tried to move my mother towards a laptop and she just straight up refused, claiming a desktop is what she wants

    well technically her carry around device is a iPad mini, she also has a Netbook (who is less powerfull than my ASUS FonePad 7 HD :roll:) also no ultrabook or even laptop are cheaper than the build wishlist i did... at last where i am, still happy that she doesn't want a Mac due to the iPad :rolleyes:

    advantage : for a HTPC it will be quite fine :)

    thanks error 503...

    short mode ... OC and playing with the testbench summary : SP120 addition and bench
    sitting on a Sequoia Root table (150kg my scared shine attest that fact: it's UNMOVABLE )
    also that setup took the role of my HTPC ... :D

    Tubing still needs some tidying up.... I ran out of 3/8x5/8 tubing and fittings and had to use some 3/8x1/2 stuff temporarily :oops:

    I now have my MX100 128GB installed in the Shoebox with Fedora 20 on it. Still not sure how I'm going to place it in there, waiting to see how I'm going to place the HDD, which I'm going to buy at some point. :p

    How does the positive pressure work out for you? notice any difference if any at all with the top as intake? I've considered replacing the dust filter top on my case to the sound insulate one, and running it as an intake.

    No dust is what i notice. And its quieter. The down side is when I had 7950s in Crossfire I had to add a 200mm to the side as an intake to deal with the heat but it still works fine. So with positive pressure + filters you will need more or faster fans to get the same cooling
