well if u keep the dual fan setup you will kill both fans..

And if you drop the HDD behind the fan you can use the fan to cool the HDD.

Looking good...

Pretty good for a first mod. BTW, does that 80mm (I assume it's 80mm) fan on the PCI slot brackets help out at all?

I put it in to add an exhaust power. =)

Hey Guys!

Is it stupid to overclock celeron?...why would you prefer AMD brands?
Do you have any concrete reasons?

Having two fans on the side panel like that will actually be worse than just one.

Great airflow! Now all you need is a graphics card to take advantage of it...:p. Otherwise that looks like a very nice mod. 7/10.

What are your cpu temps like, I dont think having those two fans like that will work. I would get rid of that stock cooler as well.

yeah...AMD is usually faster for gaming. But the processor I want right now is the Intel Pentium D 805. About $120 at newegg, and overclocks to ~4GHz on air! More if liquid cooled. Beats/comes close to FX-60 and the top-of-the-line Pentium Extreme Editions if overclocked, for ~$800 less! I would says it's the best bang for the buck right now.

Great! I just decided to pick to Intel Brand as I read and saw from other benchmark sites that Intel beats the AMD (Celeron D vs Sempron). Also heard some rumors that AMD can get too hot rapidly.

I voted 2/10 because:

Sorry, but the name is very cheesy, also, the cabling and placement of parts is very illogical. I know ur on a budget, but I've seen normal systems look much better.

The amount of fans that u use clearly states that you do not understand how the airflow is supposed to work.

I'll give u a better score if you tidy it up and decrease the amount of fans you have, it must be noisy.
