this was my very first attempt at any modding, the case is a pre-mod enermax, but everything else i did...my favorite part is the hidden cd-r and dvd drives

any suggestions or comments are appreciated

thank you

The hidden optical drives are totally cool.

Only sugestions I would have is...

Ussually the PCI slot directly under the AGP slot shares it's IRQ with the AGP slot. I would move the sound card and other PCI card down one slot each. For better performance and cooling (more airflow between the cards). Also I would seperate the optical drives with an empty bay for better cooling as well.



















Why are overclockers obsesed with cooling???

Wow that truly is a beautiful machine. I wish I could afford a nice case. Instead I'm basically building my own out of an ammo box. I reckon the outside will be ok but the inside will not be so pretty...

Oh yeah get a bigger heatsink and fan, this is the overclocking forum after all

i did have a volcano 9, but for whatever reason, i would be running at like 60 celcius with that...and the stock hsf runs at about 40-42 celsius....so i left the stock hsf.....gonna get some loom to clean up my power cabling soon too...so i should be able to update the pics soon...thx for the suggestions


also, i can't overclock, cuz i'm not about to try to unlock my 2000+ i don't have the money to mess it up and have to replace it
