no give or take..i do have every official game ans every game ever considered as an official game.

The trouble is..i still have a bag of bits, although the board is assembled. I have no case..
Due to the current postal strike in England, my case is in a sorting office somewhere..ggrrr

Nice stuff Blum 3

CPU and ddr2 ram have really dropped in price this half of the year, perfect for some gifts..

Personally I'm running a couple PC's without cases, usually easier for testing and such, but in my case (pun?), I'm not testing much anymore so I suppose it's just me being lazy. But some excuses could be: space and cost saving. The only problems with not using the case would be signal interference (ie EMI) but that shouldn't be a problem in modern spread spectrums and stuff.

Though I was planning on finding a plastic/cardboard box to hide those sometimes really bright LED's... Or maybe I'll just 'cut' them off.

Luckily i have a guy who will order parts and let me try them before buying.

so today i picked up...

3x Seagate Barracuda SATAII 16mb x 250gb drives
1 logitech G5 gaming mouse
my 54g network card
and extra pair of fans, its gonna get hot

and a rather tasty 600w psu..i was planning 800 but im told with this one its well capable.

and i got my Keyboard today too. Im testing both keyboard and mouse right now, as that is all i can realistically do without...

MY DAMN CASE :oops:

When I order several computer parts I usually order them all from one site lol. And not 10 different sites :wink:.

1st boot = COMPLETE

BIOS setup = COMPLETE

1hr system monitor = COMPLETE

windows XP = INSTALLED

She is currently sitting nicely at 26 Celcius, and has been for a couple of hours now. The primary HDD is running at 28 celcius.

And boy its quiet!!!
I can get it down another 2 degrees easily..but with all 7 fans running at full speed...its not quite so silent Wink

Wiz, if i had a computer like that, i wouldn't worry about lowering the degrees or makin it a little more quiet

Sooo, any bets on how the RvS/SWAT4/BF2 tests go? hehehe

As anyone who has built a pc, will tell you. One of the most important parts of setup, is what temperature it runs at.

It is vital, after setting up the BIOS, that you sit and let it run for an hour to check the temperatures.
This is a fairly good way of detecting if anything was assembled wrong or is faulty.
It is silent right now...but for those intense BF2 nights...i can crank it up.

And yes i have kissed it Lol

Wiz, i was saying, if you have the degrees fine and the sound fine, but its possible to make it lower, I would try it, but it wouldnt be my first priority. But yeah, you gotta make sure it's at a temperature it can operate at effectively for the time its going to be running.
