Yep those are from my Case Mod Comp case and the HDD cage is from the WaterClocker rig (which took fifth in one of the comps a ways back). So it's all about Moving the Mojo onto a living project.
This rig has become a living presence...a Power
in my psychic domain. In fact I think she has over
considering I just now ordered the Opty 165, Abit AT8 32R, the RaptorX and the 2 Seagate 320 GB 7200.10 Perps from Newegg. Should be shipping in a few hours knowing the Egg. Once those are installed ICE will be at the second plateau of her development into an ideal OverClocking/Gaming/Benching station. I do not see any motherboard or processor surviving for long once clamped in her cold embrace....so when I destroy Phoenix Rising some time down the road ICE will be ready for the next victim..I am such an optimist
I decided I had had my fun with RAID and OS installations--considering the number of times I reload in a week. So that's the excuse for the purdy RaptorX. The 2 x 320 is for terminal archiving of all my other rig's data and to have a repository for my art. I need a single stable platform to work from--having all these different PC cases and bits and bobs laying about is getting hard to manage. Besides eliminating a mass of duplicated files and folders I want to develop ICE into the ideal platform for torturing Silicon into submission to my will. And then feed her my other rigs one at a time (JK)
If I ever get the hang of Tweaking and Overclocking videocards I might even add on watercooling--I have a good sized space (read: 2 x 250mm fan Rad Box of plexi) under the mobo and it would certainly be fun to do...later...after I get some actual CPU OverClocking results on phase.
Right now with the ailing Sandy and sputtering A8NSLI it is like havng a 500 horsepower muscle car with no tires....I'm getting tired of revving the engine and not getting anywhere!
