There ya have it. Pretty bad ass system. Didnt mod anything, it is a stock case, but it looks far cooler design (and is glossy), and supprisingly, cheaper than an antec/chieftec, it came with a 420W PS also.
I would like to learn how to stealth the DVD and CD-RW drives behind the faceplate. I am also interested in water cooling, but I have never attempted liquid cooling yet, and I dont know if I should risk my first learning experience on my brand new badass machine:
Raidmax Dragon case w/420W PS, two exhaust fans, and one intake (side) fan.
Added 2 intake 80mm fans in front
ASUS K8V SE Deluxe Mobo
AMD 64 3200+ (2.0Ghz version) stock
Thermaltake Venus 12 Volcano
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro All in Wonder w/cable tv-in.
Two Western Digital 10,000RPM SATA HDs (RAID 0)
Slowly breaking 16X DVD...want to replace with 16X DVD+/-RW SATA 8MB buffer dual layer....but they dont have dual layer of that specification yet, and really pricey.
Samsung 48*24*48 CD-RW
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 with digital coax out to digital home theater receiver for digital 5.1 surround sound.
I have wireless 802.11G 54Mbps USB adapter plugged in, and when it is plugged in my CPU temp is at 47°C. When I disconnect it, temperature lowers to anywhere 37-40°C. When playing Doom 3 on high details, temperature rises to 51°C. Case maintaines a steady 37°C. 8 fans including GPU fan = a little noisy.
When I setup my machine, after I configured my RAID Array, it took 9 minutes for a total format and full install of windows xp pro. Fastest machine I have ever been on, wish it were quieter. Other than that, extremely happy.
