I know what you mean, I really enjoy messing with computer parts as well. Unfortunately I'm not all that wealthy at the moment and must keep the part buying to a minimal... for now. I noticed that not only do we have the same case, but also the same CPU cooler. How high can you clock an i7 with it?

Ah... Well what you make is none of my business I just assumed that since you have an i7 system, a gtx 260 and a 5870 you should be doing well. I still have most of the core components I bought a year and a half ago.


But back on track, you can get 4GHz on a Hyper? Amazing, plenty of people shell out $80 for a H50 or something to do that. What fans are those, do you have a link if you don't mind looking?

I just noticed this thread. I chose the Tempest over the popular Antec Nine Hundred because, well, hardly anyone else had one. I got tired of seeing so many people suggest the same case so I made sure I deviated. Then when I read the review in Maximum PC, I knew I had to grab this case. I don't have any pictures uploaded of my rig running ... yet. I'll have to grab my camera from my sister. The camera on my phone just wouldn't do it justice.

I'm wondering if the tempest is large enough for the UD7 ( there's not 8 slot but there's a long gap between the 7th expansion slot and the PSU that seem enough to take the extra length of the board .

And if yes I just do some moding to do a hole under the last expansion for the 4th card

It would be the cheapest and best case I could buy if it can take XL-atx. for only 100$ compared to 175$ for xaser ... And it's look way better than a Xaser .

And it could be my little friend until I can have an HAF X .
