Wow, that was fast!
Great job, looks pretty damn good.
I remeber when my dad bought a crappy dell PC when i joined the army (even tho i told him i could build him one cheaper). Well about 1 year later i came home on leave before i deployed to iraq and i went to use it and noticed a loud grinding sound, so i asked him if i could take the panel off and see what was wrong. when i took the panel off there was a 12v molex connector wire inside the CPU fan and i asked my dad how long it was sounding like that and he said ever since he bought it. I laughed cause it had grinded it so bad the it had taken off the rubber and almost had cut the entire wire in half.
lol that's when management is important, but as i said the majority of people don't get it that bad. and all you need is basic management to stop that, you don't need to go all out with a dremel. just move the friggen wire a few inches and tuck it if necessary.
bet he liked the newfound quiet, huh?
@ Radical Edward yup im happy with it just wish it didn't weigh so god damn much must be close to 20~22KG
@ Brandonwh64 LoL i had a mates PC catch fire because of a similar problem the wire rubbed on a fan till it was through to the copper and he moved his PC from lounge to Computer room and when he restarted it the wire had moved and now was touching the metel case after a couple of minutes it shut down and smelt real nice
That is pretty heavy. I'm not sure how heavy my case is, but it's pretty hefty too. My last case was aluminum and when I changed to this one, I noticed quite a difference.
I like that CPU cooler a lot.... I dont know why. Might possibly pick one up for an upcoming AMD mini-build..
yes empty case weighs in at 12.5KG add in everything in my specs and it bumps up the weight considerably but its alot of steel the two pics are showing it sitting on a backless computer chair it over hangs it by a good few inches either side
@ radical Edward Don't get that PSU it has major stability issues on the 12v rail when under load quite large spikes and droops aswell as a lot of low frequency noise
It works pretty well, dropped my temps down about 5*C under full load. I picked it up from another member on here for pretty much the price of shipping, and I'm rather happy with it.
What would you recommend then? I'm looking for something in the 650W area that has at least a 120mm fan and doesn't cost more than $90. (Modular would be a great plus!)
wow nice case layout, not seen one that way before.
LOL he was like WTF and called dell. long story short they were like "there hands are tied" since i opened the case. i told dad that i would make him right so i ordered him a new 500W psu and installed a green LED fan onto his heatsink (the blades on the other one was chewed as well). so now he like the green glow that comes out of the case.
@ Spud yeah i know took me aback a bit when i first read a review but it works 3x 180mm intake fan on the bottom blow up through the case and all the heat follows it's natural path which is up and out
@ Radical Edward any Enermax OCZ or CoolerMaster modular PSU would be better
if you can get anything by Pc Power & Cooling or corsair those would be best, idk what you have available..
yeah no way they'd touch it. you got it resolved easily enough though and now he's got the glow very cool.
Well, I did some more searching around on the egg. Looks like I'm going with this PSU.
i've never used OCZ but the only available PC P&C is recertified, and that looks like a decent unit, so i'd say that's good...
that is the exact model i was about to post Radical you read my mind
or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...e=enermax_power_supply-_-17-194-021-_-Product
i know it's a little over your budget but it comes with an 60 buck rebate making it only 99.99
Not bad at all chicken! (I'm so glad it arrived... phew!)
With my i5 750 at 4.0 and a single 5850 at 1000MHz Core / 1200MHz Memory, here is what I was able to pull off in 3DMark06 and Vantage.
Bad Company 2 runs way better than it did with a single 5770, definitely a different world. Two 5770's should be comparable to a 5870 though, so I'm sure your games will scream chicken!
take the 600w instead, its the same psu, just a 700w sticker on the 700w
they have the same guts
Are you sure?
afaik, it can take up to 700w load
Good to know, thanks for the info Don.
np, but wait and see what others say
