Small update: I received my Torture Rack, Intel X25-M, and Caviar Black in the mail. I haven't assembled the case yet, but I peeled some of the paper coating off and took a peak at the smoke acrylic panels -- they look great. I work ten hour shifts, so I'll be gone until 1 AM tomorrow, but I'm going to put the case together on Sunday and I'll be able to post some pictures at that point. I may or may not do that metal mesh case mod Sunday night, but if not it should be either Monday or Tuesday.
I got an e-mail from the place I ordered my smoke Xigmatek fans from, and they finally
shipped out today. Once that shipment (and my order from performance-pcs.com) arrives I'll be able to make the trip out to Fry's for my mobo/CPU. I'm estimating that the computer will be all put together somewhere between Tuesday the 22nd and Tuesday the 29th.
Once she's up and running I think I'm just going to throw these piece-of-crap Logitech speakers in the dumpster and use my nice Technics headphones until I can afford some really nice 2.0's (Audioengine A5, perhaps?
) There's also a chance that a blu-ray drive might make it into this build on day-one... we'll see. Stay tuned!Edited by koda - 12/24/09 at 5:16pm
