    Hereís a little project Iíve been working on since Christmas, its taking time because moneys a factor But Iím in no rush I call her Scully



    Iíve had the mobo since Christmas (Gigabyte 7N400PRO2) and bought the PSU the other day which is a Silent XPower AOpen, I chose that because of itís ď12 fan and huge exhaust, itís meant to be incredibly silent Ė Itís even got a knob at the back for complete control Might try it out later in my current machine

    The case is a Cooler Master Cavalier Ė TO3 Ė picked it up at PCWorld the other day, would have cost much more with shipping online. It looks so very sexay, thereís two USB and one Firewire just to the left of the front and audio/MIC to the right, the hinge on the door is solid too, canít see that breaking anytime soon. Very pleased with it indeed My only gripe is that the fan control for the Processor fan isnít flush with the rest of the front, itís got to sit in deeper so that the door can close, my knobs too big




    The fans a Gigabyte 3D Cooler Pro, All I need is an AMD XP for it to sit on, thinking about going with a 3000 Barton



    My only concern is whether or not the cooling and fans contradict themselves? Thereís an 80mm at the front which is sucking air in and then thereís the 120mm and the ď12 PSU fan sucking air out, but when you add the Cooler Pro into the equation, itís going to be sending some air into the wrong direction, would it not?

    Iíve got a 90mm Acoustifan thatís not in use, could I place that somewhere useful, or where ones needed?

    Already got some DDR lined up, but any suggestions for a DVD-RW and hard drive are more than welcome

    Got the board awhile back and the 64 option was a bit too pricey in the long run, And I'm only buying what I need, not the latest stuff - not a big gamer at all really, so it's not needed

    (though it would be nice for playing Morrowind, my second home )

    Nice gear, it's going to perform at least as well as mine, and I have nothing to complain about with my rig so far.

    I'm getting a bit bored with the brushed aluminum look myself, my case has that too, though. Was planning on painting mine glossy white or black.

    If you care about the looks of it you might want a couple of these.

    Coolermaster aluminum drive bezels
    They fit most drives and they don't cost very much, fitted one on mine and it looks quite nice.
    they also come in black.
