Thanks street.
This is a cool liitle box I built for a local customer.
It packs a ton of speed and power into a little package for $2,000.
Not easy to work on because of the size constrants, but once you wedge everything in it is very sweet.

Suprisingly heat and noise are not a factor even with all the high end hardware inside.
2 PSU fans, 2 case fans, CPU and Vid Card fans yet you wouldn't even know it was on until you see the little blue power-on indicator lite.

In short, a whoop butt fast gaming and CAD machine.

I am dissapointed in the SONY DRU-120C "all disc" burner I put in this box.
In sony's defence it is still a free replacement minus my cost to get it there, I just expected it to last for the life of the box but it never could (as far as we know) burn a CD from the get-go even though it read everything and burned DVD's fine until it was just recently tried to make music CD's.

I have a better replacemnt in place for this customer so all is good and I'll wait on this replacement and give it my own tests ;-}

** update 10-11-07 **

I am sorley dissapointed in the Intel uATX motherboard I originally put in this machine, it didn't even last 11 months.
I picked Intel because I expected it last well beyond the machines usefull lifetime.

You would think when they designed a uATX motherboard they would know it was going to be a tiny case and everything would need more board chip cooling than a larger case would need.

I'm not going to get into the motherboard disc drivers and software that it installed just now, but suffice it to say that they don't want to go away when you change motherboards and it took hours searching the net and reading the posts of hundreds of other pissed off people about it before I finally got the Intel motherboard crap of the otherwise working XP system.

More later, but the customer is up and working and it's a good box again.
