    actually the walls are white - that's the pure sunshine that the PSU runs on that's making the wall light up yellow like that.

    edit: thought you guys were talking about my pic (didn't see Bow's load yet and wondered what was so special about yellow paint hehe)

    and sadly no, there are no unicorns included although they bundled some kind of unicorn MMO with the copy of Windows I got. The power LED is one of those "all the colors of the rainbow" LEDs though so it does have that

    Got a few nice deal at Smiley's Flea Market last Saturday. Only $2 got me:

    3GHz Pentium D dual-core CPU w/Intel cooler
    Asus P5B-VM SE
    Antec Minuet 300 & 300W Antec slim PSU
    80mm Antec Tri-Cool fan
    512MB Corsair DDR2 400MHz
    Matrox MGI-P65 64MB workstation graphics card (Anyone know how much this is worth?)

    I added a spare DVD burner, 2x 256MB DDR2, and spare 640GB 7200.12 which all culminated in a little build straight from ghettoland.

    It looked like someone dropped the case on a corner so I had to pound out a bend in the panel to get things going again. Still the whole thing doesn't sit quite right with the DVD drive and front panel connections being a little misaligned. The panel is also scratched up, but for $2 it's impossible to go wrong.

    I need to get the memory amount to 2GB by borrowing some from another setup, and also need to reinstall windows as the current install on that drive is suited for a Dell (the new rig was randomly shutting off due to driver problems too).

    Also found was a nice looking 17" Samsung 4:3 LCD, which apparently doesn't work. I'll have to look into it further. Lastly came a Dell Inspiron 8500 with accessories for $25. Current status is unknown since it needs a charge, so I ordered a charger last night. Hopefully it will also turn out well.

    Thought about rebuilding completely, but couldn't justify it. Doing some upgrading instead- GTX 580 and maybe a SSD. Will throw it all in this thing once I can turn my computer off after the Chimp Challenge ends :D

    I saw about a 5 degree improvement maybe a little more, but the pump doesnt have enough flow rate. I get the same temps if I run my fans at 900rpm or 2000rpm
