    Definitely...
    Fortunately, I didn't "learn" anything on my sister's PC. It went together in a snap, and works great. Although cheaper, it has a better case design but was lacking fans. Seems I had all these "extra" fans laying about to fix that....;)
    It looks like I'm going to be getting even more guinea pigs...err, uh, I mean..."practice" building PCs as my work partner wants me to do a major upgrade to his wife's machine. If I keep this up, I could have a good side trade. :thumb:
    :cheers:

    Hey doin' that at my last job (before forced retirement) w/ about 700 ppl there and fixin' old ones for them got me started along a business road that hopefully in the next 5yrs will amount to something that will give my family something to profit from. :)

    In these last 2.5yrs of enforced retirement I can't even hazard a guess at how many PC's have left these doors but they have certainly kept my funds topped up to enjoy a few things and provide the family w/ some minor luxuries (even just cleanin' out a PC and reinstallin' the software is an easy $40aus a hit) and I'm still doin' one a day here (I'm not spose to be doin' anymore work atm but I'm a sucker to help ppl out).

    Awww, you're no sucker....just a decent human being (Getting harder and harder to find these days it seems).
    I was talking to my partner today about the solid advice I'd recieved from you. I've surfed quite a bit researching for my project, and I've read the gamut of advice given...from kids tweaking things beyond capacities and whining about what crap said product is when it fails when it was obviously O.E., to technically oriented articles from very well educated yet rigid-thinking individuals with no sense of fun at all. I can tell that you have learned by experience, and the systems you've built show it. No flash, nothing bleeding edge, yet your stuff WORKS. I'll get to the flash later, as I MUST satisfy the creative side of myself. I am already plotting my next machine, but not before I get some good hard use of this one and experience any limitations. So far, other than the cooling issue, I haven't. I'll just tinker with this one, keep up on the new innovations, and continue my self-education.
    I am a carpenter by trade, but a couple summers ago, I got involved with a mountain bike racing team that did a 24 hour race....that's right, 24 hours continuous! Technical support was critical, we realized, and as the tinkerer, I forewent racing and became the team mechanic. The team grew over several years as did the support which we opened up to the public. I lost count after working on 75 bikes during a 48 hour period, but it made me a master bicycle mechanic, and very well appreciated by some folks that had lost all hope. Oh, and we never charged a dime, but the satisfaction of helping people made it all worth it. I am no longer with the team as a divorce financially forced me to quit , but I still hear people refer to me as the "bike guy". I've checked into starting a bike shop and dropped it as a means of income. There's just not much profit in it. Now computers....everyone needs one, right?:thumb:

    Well I just got back from a quick 1500km (900miles about) only to find 2 x Volcano 7+ HSF's and some 34cfm 80mm LED fans plus 2 of these here to which I'll insert a LED fan into each window over the AGP/PCI cards. :D

    My biggest let down has been not bein' able to ride my mountbike or my slightly worked (145bhp@rear wheel) and tournin' setup GPZ1000RX (one of these pictured below). :cry:

    Sweeeeeeeeet!
    Both the bike AND the cases....he he he. :thumb:
    Wow....we like a lot of the same things...but, I have to wait for the motorbike....I set my goals high with the BMW R1100GS, and it'll be a LONG time before I can afford that. :cry:
    OK, I could look it up, but what case is that? Who's it for? Is this for YOUR new system or to dress up the family's? I never did hear if you'd decided on another AMD or a Pentium....

    Yes.... well..... I spose that I should let them know that I've decided..... to build both setups but....... then again... :D

    I might as well have one of each to double as display models. :devil win

    This particular UNEEC case is marketed by Enermax as their FS-710B Server Case w/ side window option (cheap but it has excellent airflow characteristics to start with) but it's also very solid (1mm steel). :thumb:

    WOW! BOTH systems!
    Man Wiggo....will you adopt me? :laugh:
    Well, knowing you, I'm sure you have full system specs roughed out....care to share? I can't build anything in the NEAR future, but I'd sure love to see what you come up with.(Dream specs for me, no doubt)
    I checked that case out. Nice :) OK, you're a steel man...is your mountain bike steel too? I'm a tall drink of water, and always preferred aluminum. Perhaps that's why I paid more than for that Enermax case for an aluminum one.........that doesn't cool well:scream:
    OK, I'll get over that once I do my light mods....he he he :devil win :cheers:
