    What is the difference between the AXP and the AXP II?

    And a lot of heat also even though it has an AXP on it.

    That white and black theme is looking good.

    Shop Dog may look pedigree but trust me it's a useless mutt. I can't get XP to see a camera or a USB card reader and XP crashes and blames the VPU when I try to preview pictures. Sad. If it was hardware related this dog would be up for adoption...but it's clearly Microshaft XP suckage. I hate to say it but I think I'm buying an OEM Win7 for this lazy pooch. Hoping that will put some stick to it.

    I redid my sleeved cabling, installed a fan controller, added another fan to add more air to the main compartment, and changed my bottom rad to intake air into the case instead of exhausting. The fan changes made things much quieter, before it sounded like Refrigerator Perry taking the biggest green hit on the planet.

    Got it setup temporarily to get Win7 installed, Memtest the RAM, and take care of a little cable management. Found out I did not have any blue or black SATA cables left- only red.

    Still need to find a permanent GPU (GTX 560/460) and CPU cooler, get an adapter for the USB3 cable, and tidy up the wiring some more.

    Excuse the poor pic:

    Looks awesome, since it seems your using the exhaust fan reverse to cool down the mosfets might be worth making a shroud for it to direct the air a bit : ]

    Thanks. The fan is in reverse for that, but also to feed the radiator. I may switch things up again, though, because my temps last night were quite a bit hotter than they were before. My GPUs hit 46, and they usually never even touch 40, CPU was 55 instead of 48ish. Could be because I moved my tower off the ground, and I had a big fire going in the stove.

    Golly jeepers, that's a ton of tech.

    I keep all my review samples so that they can be revisited in the future if a user has a problem I might be able to check for them, and so I can update my testing results when time permits.

    With Bulldozer scaling well under cold, I think i'll be having some fun this winter(it's only 40f right this moment), so I'm going to try to increase the AMD board count considerably in the near future. I've put in a couple of requests for boards so far, and will be asking for more real soon. I don't care how BD performs...I WANNA OVERCLOCK!!!:laugh:

    your rig is all nice and neat..I may have alot of hardware, but nothing that looks as good as your rig does.:cry:

    :roll:
