Hi! My SocketA beast has been running for a about a month and I'd thought post about it, btw I ended up getting a bigger PSU.

Specs:
MoBo: Abit AN-7 Nforce2 Ultra400 (Zalman Passive NB)
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3200+ 2.33Ghz (Rocker PRO cooler)
RAM: 1024mb RAM PC2700 (2x512mb DualChannel)
Graphics: MSI Geforce 6600GT 128mb
Power: Hiper Type-R 480w PSU
HDD: 1x80gb 2x200gb Western Digital 7200rpm 8mb cache
5.25: 1xDVD+-RW
Case: Aspire Xplorer
Fans: exhaust 1x120mm 2x80mm, intake 1x80mm

3D Mark 01: 14796
3D Mark 03: 7504
3D Mark 05: 3263

This is stock scores, I haven't OC'd yet

Look at the cooling, 1 80mm intake infront of the 3 hdds and a Passive Zalman on the NB which the cpu cooler blows air on to.

Cpu MoBo PWM
48 34 42 Idle temps
52 38 48 Load temps

this is after it's been running for a few weeks
Cpu temp is normal, but the Mobo i think is pretty good.

Some pics:

My SocketA Beast can beat up your socket A beast!

Just messing. Yours probably runs a lot cooler. And I like your mobo more. :D Nice system, and nice marks. :)
