To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
Athlon64 3700+ 754 Clawhammer 2.4GHz @12x209MHz; Powercolor-GameFX RadeonX850XT(@PE clocks);1.5GB RAM (3x512MB,DDR400 @2.5-3-3-7);Gigabyte GA-K8NE/nforce4 passive cooled chipset!!; LogitechMX518;AC ATI Silencer5-Rev2;Noname CPU-cooler,looks like a Zalman, but was cheaper and does its job quite well;PSU: Revoltec ChromusII RNPS450 (430Watt)

Mods:
3 blue fans:1 blowing air in at the rearside, 1 blowing out at the rear side, 1 blowing cool air to the AtiSilencer5.I used Arctic Silver5 as thermal paste for CPU and VGA.I put on the top a few passive coolers, the CPU fan is slowed down at non hearing point and keeps it in gaming constant at 50°C.The case has in front a multi-color LED, which changes every few seconds it colors.For better airflow i put some wires behind the mainboard.

This is my first self-built computer and it has a good gaming performance although its 754 and i dont have dualchannel.I think its not a bad system for a 15 year old and i get 6200 3D-05marks without full overclocking in ddr333(ddr400:7530).Oc'ed i get 70063Dmarks with 580/620 vga freq and 209 HTLink frequency.

Nice Mod

Nice mod. I have a Gigabyte MB too. The only thing I would change is try to clean the wires a little bit more even though it's a pain in the butt. Nice mod. Just one question why would you use a ATI card with a NVidia chipset?

I always match chipset's when building PC's. If you don't lose performance then no big deal. Good job young buck.

You might want to check your actual memory speed because I really doubt it's DDR 400. When I put three sticks in my socket 754 board it ran at only DDR 200 until I took one out.

I had one that ran 3200 with one stick, 2700 with two, and 2100 with three. But yes, generally it runs 2700 with 3 sticks and 3200 with two. Other than that nice system. Thumbs up.

Nice

You have the same specs as my system as far as CPU and graphics card goes. I would reorganize those wires. The photos of my system are old, wires are not messy anymore. And whats with that fan??? Shouldn't it be mounted on something? lol But nice specs...

I tested with cpu-z and everest homedition and both are showing 201MHz clock and 402MHz DDR-clock so i guess it runs at ddr400

sweet mod! I was just wondering, when you fool with your X850's fan speeds, any trouble with ATI silencer 5 fan?
