I'd call it "The Oracle" since it reminds of that thing relating to the Oracle in Halo 1/2 or whatever game I'm thinking of.

If it's broke FIX it. If it's not broke, OVERCLOCK it. If OVERCLOCKING breaks it, get ready to buy a new one

The cases red 'slot eye' in front reminds me of a Cylon from the TV show...
Maybe just name it Cylon 1.

oh i moved, its now on the ground with nothing in the way, don't worry xD

this sucker needs upgrades like mad, and the motherboard is starting to go nuts, and oddly, its quite powerful, but windows keeps annoying me saying that computer performance is low and constantly reverts to windows 7 basic on me, yet i only have a web browser and a chat client open. i've tried KC's faster PC pages, ive made a new windows install everything, and it still does that. odd.

another thing is the sound, the sound once in a while randomly just stops working, then after the 10th reboot, it works again.

Also, I have often USB errors, like its saying usb bandwidth exceeded, or random USB cutouts, i've never understood why.

Last, i cannot for the life of me be able to suspend this computer, although i never even shut it down, its still weird what it does. It will suspend, but when it wakes up, it'll makes the fans run at 100% for 10 mins, then show the windows logon screen, and the second you click on your name to log in, itll reboot, and take an hour to do so.

I guess the first thing you would have ruled out is heat.

But it sounds like your saying these problems got worse shortly after moving the PC to the floor?

I was just thinking.

I would expect my homes carpet to cause heat problems for both my PC's if they were placed on the floor. Mostly from restricting the air intake vent on the bottom of the faceplate. And then from more dirt down the road.

Just a thought...

Get a large enough piece of wood or hard surface and set your tower on that, carpet + pcs = bit no no

Ya and even then a PC at floor level will still get 10x the dirt inside the case too.

no no no, the sound problem has always done this, just never really cared til now, its actually cooler where it is, plus i clean my PC often, so i dont mind the dust it gets. But not to be worried, this weekend im upgrading this sucker like mad, going from 2.2 dual core to a 3.4 quad, and from ddr2 to a ddr3 :)
