    Hey guys about my Antec case earlier what would you think if I paint it metallic blue and add some white stripping to make like an old musle car? Remove the optical drives and put a single black one dvd-rw ?

    Yes, stripes do make it go faster :). Put in a black, or a Metallic blue drive if you can get one, then paint the drive metallic blue if it already isn't, then paint the platter white, that would look sweet.

    I just installed Xubuntu 12.04 LTS in it. I'm satisfied up to now but I will look what it makes on the long term. It's faster than XP home at first try. Let's see.

    My ATAT Computer MOD

    I am building a Star Wars ATAT computer.

    Using a Star Wars ATAT Full Size Model Kit from Toys-R-Us
    Using a ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe ITX mother board.
    GSKILL 8G 2400 MEMORY Intel 3770K processor
    Mini ITX Athena Power supply 400W FLEX
    Corsair H60 CPU water block.

    I have cut out the 6.7x6.7 square out of Plexiglas 1/4" thick. I have installed Corsair H60 water cooling block
    Will send PICS after installation.

    I recommend you use Debian or atleast switch ubuntu over to XFCE or LXDE

    It will be less bloated.

    i posted mine earlier in the thread. 12 externals, minimum 1.5TB drives


    (i find internals to be bad. externals can be powered on/off individually, thus extending their life and protecting the data)

    Nice amount of data.

    You can turn off internals quite easy. Enable power modes, turn off hard disk after so many minutes. Mine are set to 1 min. So main drive still spins while others are 100% off till i click on them.:)
