    You need an i7 to really handle all the block rotation calculations.

    Having sex with his motherboard.
    Why, it's an Abit IL9-Pro, it has no overclocking ability, limits at DDR2-667, max 4 gigs, and runs at 4x electrical with the crossfire.

    :(

    Son, sometimes a video card feels the need to insert itself into a motherboard, no matter how bad she may be.

    You'll figure this out once you grow up to be 4GB.

    What the fuck is that Scan-Tron card doing there?
    Airflow direction.

    It takes the air from that intake fan and directs it to the hardrives and partially towards the video card.

    I got the idea from LazyV.

    I'd be afraid to put that in my system, looks heavy enough to tear the CPU socket right off the mobo even with a mounting bracket :aaaaa:

    My RAID controller finally arrived today so I've been pretty busy getting it set up. Currently have four 500GB Barracudas in RAID 5. I'm have two more 500GB drives I'm planning to add but one is currently at Seagate for RMA and the other has my OS on it. I'm looking for a real super cheap SSD for my OS though so I can get all six 500GB drives in the array.

    Shit she needs a dusting badly, need to get some compressed air in there at some point and figure out how to organize those SATA cables. These things are such a bitch to maneuver around I'm afraid to bend them too much or put too much pressure on the little plastic connectors.


    My RAID card, a Dell PERC 5/i with 512MB ECC DDR2. It's a server pull, but only $150 CAD on Ebay with two SAS to SATA fanout cables. What a deal! Also swapped off the heatsink on the IOP333 with that blue one for a little extra cooling.

    Once the drives are finished formatting I'll get some benchmarks up.

    You can get some pretty good deals if you buy used. It's probably one of the only computer components you should buy used because you'll save yourself a few hundred bucks and most of the time they're pulled from servers and still is very good condition anyway.

    Look how fancy this shit is, comes in it's own carrying pouch.

    Took forever to get all the cables to fit.

    Pretty nice cable management for a non-modular PSU.
    Damn, just looking at the Micro-ATX motherboard and 4670 in that case makes me laugh.

    My system is finally up in somewhat working shape again.
    Please ignore the slight cosmetic defects. there is a reason it's under my desk.





    SPECS:
    Motherboard: MSI 865PE Neo2-P (or -PLS, might depend on BIOS)
    CPU: Pentium 4 3.2ghz HT
    Ram: 3.5gb PC3200 DDR ram (surprisingly, it's actually detecting it all)
    Hard drives: 2 x hitachi SATA 1tb; custom made Compact Flash SSD bracket (currently empty)
    Video: Sapphire Radeon HD3850 AGP
    Sound: Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum.

    It may be old but it's completely loaded down.

    You can fix that cosmetic damage easily enough. Sand that down, and repaint.
