I wasnt exactly expecting the Fesser to be so thin, dont know why, but anyways....
I had 1/2" on a previous build and I didnt like the kinks and lack of bendability (if thats a word) Also no clamps
Lovin ghte fans and the mobo tray, really sets it apart from the rest of the TJ07's, great color choice jellyrole
Looking good Sneeky.
Jelly, that's a very different 07. But nice looking man.
My pc at the moment. Need alot more hardware.
Good thing I'm about to get paid for building this.

Nice jellyrole...looks like you're doing some modding there. Did you start a project log?
Haha I know waht you mean Radical...my CM690 looks a little bare as well. I wanted to take CP's advice and get the 4870x2 when I built my current setup but didn't have the budget so I got a flimsy HD3870.
Plus my CPU cooler, while effective, is damn ugly!!! I'm thinking of replacing it with THIS once I get the cash flow going again.
Hey, that looks a lot like my second rig Ed! Did you use mine for inspiration? How did you find that Rosie case to be? Truth be told it's not a bad little case, it's got thick side panels at least (can't stand those floppy panels).
Also Newegg has a 500W OCZ StealthXStream for $45 and a $20 rebate until noon. Better deal than the 400W Corsair? Looks very similar to it really, just $5 less and 100W more. Only thing is, it still doesn't have an 8-pin CPU power.
8pins arent really required unless you do some oc'ing or your running a high end cpu
Well the CPU is currently running a 500MHz OC to 3.4GHz, but it probably still doesn't pull many watts. Idk, I think I'd be more satisfied with the Corsair. From reading the reviews on the OCZ, the MIR seems to take like 3 months to get back to you.
Yeah, I was looking at it before you bought it, then after you got it and gave me a bit of info, I figured it was good enough for a local build. I was right. It's a good little case. The side panels are pretty decent, plus, there weren't any sharp edges to cut me that I found. Cable management isn't that easy. But I just shoved all the extra PSU cables in the empty drive bays,
I'd go with the Corsair, but that's just me. It's not like both the PCs next to me right now have them or anything...
With that rig I just built, everything was going well until I plugged in the brand new Seagate hard drive.
*Tick of death*
Then I was all like...
Seagate and Maxtor have been the absolute worst for those in my experience. Did it have any bad sectors? Like the SG 7200.10 I have in there right now, it scrapes, clicks, pulsates and has huge downspikes on the read benchmarks, but has no bad sectors and is healthy (or so it says). It works, but I'd like to get a WD Blue drive to replace it sometime soon.
It doesn't even work. Tick of death, spins up and then shuts itself off. I ended up using my WD 160GB in that Rosewill case. I have to RMA this Seagate drive back to newegg.
Looks very clean bro, simple and does the job
Thanks CP, I try to make decent rigs for the average PC user. The person I built this for was using one of those old Dell P4's.
I built it at the cost of parts, OS, and $100 in my pocket. (They are a barely middle class family, so I figured I'd be nice.)
That's very generous of you bro, those efforts pay off even if you don't think they do. Trust me I know
a little hint to whats gonna happen soon
This is the second rig I've done at that cost for "low" income families. The other was for a friend of mine who's currently a poor college student, but he hooked me up with this family to get their rig built. I'm supposed to build a third rig for another person soon.
Honestly, I'm hoping to grab up a job at a computer shop within the next month. We'll see how it goes thou.
That's very nice of you bro, just gotta be careful who you help, but all these people you are mentioning seem like they deserved your help though . I love building low cost rigs, creates a challenge, but fun.
I'm being careful. Right now these are all people I've known for quite some time.
Plus, I have a "contract" I've been getting them to sign, that way I can use copies of said contract when I apply for PC shop jobs. "Look, these are some of my past customers..."
That should help with your interview
Yeah, that's why I chose to do the contract thing. Looks good to both the people I'm currently building for, and my future boss.
I might be switching over my i7 from one of my tech stations to the Torture Rack, wanna see if I get some benching going on in a bit. That rack is better as you have more places to put fans
you do know we demand pics right?
