To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
Well lets get started AMD 2800+,x800gto,1GB of kingstone ram with added heat sink. 80GB sata HDD,k8 series motherboard, one extracter fan under the x800gto,1 system fan,1 cpu fan, 550W psu asus DVD drive, CRT flatscreen based (evesham CRT'S for life) CRT 17'. This is about it

Mods:
Well for a start im 14 and is really all i need for what i do like gaming,game designing stuff like that. but the CPU 2800+ i have noticed it very overclockable at stock 1.8Ghz to around about 2.4Ghz 2.2Ghz depends wat im doing up i do have overheating problems with the stock AMD CPU heatsink:(:(.i also added heatsink to the RAM to cool it down . because my ram did get very hot i noticed so i put them on and it is cool but in the upcoming summer it may get very hot.

This is a very good system for me, As i do spend most of my time on my pc. i do have dual CRT bough CRT 17' and that is about ti and it really isnt that big of a mod or not even a mod just want people to see my rig.

thanks for reading Chirs :):)

Not too bad...but your pictures include shots of the wires BEHIND the case. That makes the pictures look REALLY ugly. That's probably why people are voting so low. I mean, if you take a good look, all the wires inside the case are nicely organized. The specs are impressive too. Keep up the good work.

Everyone needs to start somewhere. (Very nice for 14 years old)

I think people who give 1's and 2's are punks.

The comp is cool, it just needs help organizing the wires. (Clean your CPU and get some AS-5)

If you dont feel comfortable removing your heatsink get a can of air and blow it clean (OUTSIDE) That should help a lot.

I agree. You definitely need to take an air duster (sometimes referred to as a gas duster) and dust out your CPU heatsink because all that dust acts as an insulator and can trap heat and really limit your cooling abilities. Removing all the dust should make your cpu cool down at least a little bit.

When you clean the CPU cooler, just take out the four screws on the fan to remove the fan without taking off the heatsink. Then you can get at the fins while the heatsink is still attached to the motherboard.

BTW my friend has that CPU and he got 2.23Ghz without even raising the voltage yet.

Well i know its been a while since you put your system on here but i could not pass without voting for it i don't see how people can vote so low for your pc its nice spec, tidy, and does the job thats why i voted 10/10 although i think its more of a 7-8 just thourght you deserved a bit of cred for your hard work.
And to anyone who disagrees think of it like this. This lad is 14 and has built a system (ok may not be a super computer) but he did it. there are 30,40,50+ year old people who don't know how to switch one on!!! so come on guys in the true sprit of TECH POWER UP give the kid a brake.

ok im off now once again nice one mate pay no attention to people who bad mouth you do whats right for you. And just remember opinions are like arseholes everyone has one (and some times they stink! lol!!)

Take care :)
