Hey Long:

Here's the link to Silverstone's site and direct link to the same tower I have. If you're looking for a tower that is NOT FULL SIZE, THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU. It's Full size in LEGNTH and Mid Size in HEIGHT. Just perfect if you decide to use the UD7 Mobo. I should know I own one and will be producing a vid here shortly showing what I was able to fit in this unit. I think you're going to like it. Let me if you think and if you want one (or any other one you choose) and I have it dropped shipped to you. If you decide to go with a full size tower then I can help you there too. Here's a recent (excellent review) of it compared side by side to a Cooler Master HAF Full Size tower:

At the end of the day it's up to you, but this is BY FAR the BEST COOLING unit on the market and it's QUIET !!! Unlike me... :-D...

Wow, it's really nice, though it's double what I had planned on spending on the case, haha. I'll do some more research before choosing that I think, no offence.

None, taken. I just know that there is no better case out there when it comes to scientific proportional airflow; Cold air coming from the bottom and warm air going to the top and out of the unit. Mac Pros are known for their airflow, but I always knew that truly wasn't the most efficient way to produce that kind of airflow; I works BUT this is how it should have been built to begin with. I'm sorry about the price tag. I didn't realize what your budget was. At $239.00 it's STILL a discount compared to what I used to own (a Mac Pro). You should see what a empty Mac Tower is going for on ebay and it's pretty beat up mind you:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Apple-PowerMac-G...#ht_3072wt_913

Simply RE-TAAAAA-DED. Also, look at how much an empty cardboard Mac Pro box is going for on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Apple-Mac-Pro-bo...#ht_500wt_1154

Even more RE-TAAAAA-DED. What gets me is it ACTUALLY sold. In fact 3 of them sold !!! I never even thought I'd ever see the day a Mac Pro box get sold ?!?! That's why I prefer my Mac Hak Pro, using the Silverstone FT02 Tower, because I have Windows 7 on one SSD and Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4 on the other SSD. The best of both worlds and I'm very grateful... :-).

Again, whatever I can do to help when you finally make your decision let me know...

Thanks for that mate.

Budgets are funny, I intended on spending $2000 in total, though adding everything up, estimating the case to be $150, the total cost is $2700, so I guess I have a bit of leeway.

I'll see how I go Though I have a local computer wholesaler here who's a good friend of mine, so I'll be asking him about pricing and advice also.

Only bad thing that i have come across with this case is that when the lid is on the top my wireless does not get any signal


I'm sure that can be fixed with a router upgrade though.

So can anyone who has hit over 4ghz post up what they disabled and what voltages they changed with this board.

For some reason when i use 21X my system wont boot and the bios resets itself. Doesnt matter what voltage it seems.

That sucks about the wireless, I'll have to try it and see. Things have been delayed, so I will be getting the case and PSU next Sunday, not this one unfortunately. So close yet so far!

If I get above 4Ghz, I'll post my settings, no doubt I'll need some help tweaking them anyway, haha.

Haha, because that's the hard drive I'm currently using. I'm building this rig piece by piece then deciding what hard drive to get. I'll be moving to solid state, though I've heard constant read/write kills the drive quickly.

Only thing is, I currently use 111Gb with installed software and games, so I'm assuming I'll need a 128Gb at least, possibly use this 1Tb as a secondary drive to install everything to, though if I do that, will I be getting the full use of the SSD? Until I figure that out, I'll stick with this drive.

My ssd is only 64gb so I cant put my 100gb of steam games on the hard drive so i have them on my 2 x 150gb harddrives in raid 0.

The games still load fast enough for my need's.

When it comes to making your ssd last longer you can do things like what is suggested here http://www.overclock.net/ssd/761471-...s-folders.html

Their is also topics on linking games from your steam so you can still have the main games you play on your ssd to make full use of it.
