Guess what came today?








It's huge. A lot bigger than I expected. It's got three fans, all of them bigger than any of the fans in any PC I've ever seen. Did I mention it's gigantic? I'm so glad it was on sale for thirty dollars off.

I can't wait to get started building, I just need to wait for the rest of my parts to come. It should be less than a week, though.

I'll keep you guys updated on my progress. Smile

Yeah, it's a lot cooler in person than it is looking at the obviously photoshoped images from newegg.com. Smile

I'm probably going to make a video all about the PC when it's done. I would do so now, but this laptop can't edit video at all. Smile



I hooked up the front LED to an old computer's power supply, and it looks really nice. This picture also shows size, compared to your average Dell PC. I apologize for the horrible lighting.

Yeah, it's also made almost completely out of steel. It's heavier without parts in it than any PC I own with parts in it. But, being a desktop PC, I doubt it will move around the house much. Smile

All those breathing holes are great, especially if it's steel. Hope you got a good fan. happy dance

That's what I said when I saw it. I didn't think it would be as big as it is! Smile

The case has three fans, two 200mm and one 140mm. I don't think my PC is going to overheat any time soon, especially because I'm not overclocking anything. If I really needed to, I could add another fan to the side panel.

Erm, that might cut it. Maybe.

For more powerful gaming systems, I would certainly add more cooling, but for what I'm doing, it should be fine. Also, the fans are very nicely placed, with one 200mm fan right next to the hard drive bay, and the other two near the rear.
