Thought about adding one of those small Temp probes in it? Would be a nice extra touch. I want one for my build but budget is 0 atm lol. BTW what cpu cooler did you go with? or are you using a stock one? I thought about modding an old Heat pipe amd stock cooler for the "box" . Wanted to know what you got to fit in there?

No I hadn't thought about adding a temp monitor but I think that would be a nice touch to the build. I will probably order one next week from frozenCPU. I believe they are only like $10 for the one I have seen before. I also would like to order a single fan controller. Or if anyone knows how to build one with a potentiometer from radio shack the info would be much appreciated! I do not remember what heat sinks I used... I believe they were just old stock AMD heatsinks. Can't wait to get home and get my UPS package today!!!! Hope to get this sucker running tonight.

If you want a fan controller why not pick up something like THIS . You could probably do away with the bracket and mount anywhere. thumb.gif Glad i could throw a few ideas in. Kind of seems right since I have planned the same thing for the same "case" just not the same concept hahahah. Waiting for updates....

OK Guys so this beast is now 95% complete as of 10:30 Eastern Time! Still some wires to clean up and a surprise at the end. I will just post all the pics and quit rambling. Please give me your guys' input i love reading what people have to say about my builds... good or bad.





Sorry for the big jump in progress between these pics. Forgot to take pics!











Fanless Intel Heatsink, also PSU is fanless. both are cooled by the single 120mm fan. The CPU Is running at 40Celsius under normal load

Can anyone guess what i will be using this for???
