Default LambofGods New Build with Pics on a Pool Table

Hey All,

I just built another PC for myself..

The backbone is a MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 Board, doing all the work is an Intel Q6600 Quad Core Proc cooled by a Arctic Cooling Freezer Z Pro , memory is handled by 2 Gigs of Coarsair XMS2, throwing out video is an Vanilla EVGA 8800GT with an Zalman VF900-CU cooler Flashed to 680 Core, 950 Memory.

Write up on this is here
http://www.computerforums.org/showthread.php?t=67599

Running my OS is a 74Gig WD Raptor with an HDD cooler, and my storage is a segate 750Gig 7200.10 also with an HDD cooler. All Powered by a Rosewill RP550

All this is stuffed inside A Thermaltake Saprano...

Built on a pool table, perfect non conductive surface




All thrown together, still messy



Cleaned up



Cover on, ready to roll

After Installing windows, (fastest install ever) next to imaging

I kept careful eye's on my temps, all seemed well. about 40C at Idle



I then ran 3dmark 06 at stock settings - result = 12347




Then I set the FSB to 1333.. Core speed of the Quad core resulted in 3.0GHZ... All stable so far at stock voltage... 3dmark score = 13857



The PC is stable, the temps have not changed (40C) and i do not want to push it past this for the time being. I am plenty happy as it is.

Hi dad! It's the son you've neglected for almost 18 years. You owe some child support here.... That new computer of yours should cover it

Well, it worked fine for me.. Its not perfect though, you could generate static electricity via the carpet... If you have a rubber mat put that under your feet.

But i did it on carpet and had no problems.

NICE!!!
Very neat and tidy job. Stealthing the wires on the back side of the drive cage is real smart. I trust it runs as good as it looks.
Just a tip here. Next time try automotive split loom. Comes in all sorts of sizes and is much less labour intensive than wrapping with black tape.
