Hello Everyone.

Here it is all complete, up & running.


I haven't overclocked it or run any benchmark yet.. will do that in the coming days!

I'm still working on the room though.. I put up some 4'X8' X2 sheets of foam, not liking it!? I think I'm going to go with a track system & put some faux suede (black/red) on the walls, something like a home theater, should look okay I think!?

Anyway, on to the system.. this is now my primary gaming system, It will be used for mainly gaming & some internet use.. I'll be doing all of my software, photos etc. on what is now my old system! I've got this new system locked down pretty tight.. I've installed a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) chip & require a password during BIOS boot to even access the system! WHY.. WHY NOT!? lol When I leave my house, I shut the system down, the drive is totally encrypted & NO ONE is going to gain access to my system but me.


Here are some pics I took today, sorry they look so bad.. all I have is a cell phone camera! lol

Thanks, Phil B.

Ah, much better :)
I really like the wraps around the fans, that's something I haven't seen before!

ATMINSIDE,
Yeah, Thanks. I was thinking, how can I dress up the system fans.. make some stitched covers for them! They turned out like I wanted, but the black Edge Kote I used left the edges shiny.. not quite what I was going for!?
I've got a few more ideas brewing in my head for some similar system-wide mods, cable/fan wraps.
Later. Phil B.
