I have built several rigs with this case....it's an awesome case.Very quiet, easy to work in and very pleasing to the eyes. Excellent build quality as well. Great pick, Jim!

I'm the Uncle your Aunt won't talk about. Go ahead and pull my finger!
Cool. Good youve used them. I was gonna put the new stuff in a Lian Li...but maybe Ill pass that one along to my daughter.
Maybe this will work out well.
Killer case Jim/Bob.
Well I`m almost done assembling. That 120 Ultra was a real PITA!!! Just got to install the motherboard, and do the wiring. Then hopefull it will start up with no problems.
Also, I sold one of my dual cores already. One more dual core sale, and I`m going to build another quad.
I just shut down 3 of My 5 PCs, Due to power costs($278.80) and PC5 needs a new psu as It has a failing psu that was exposed to an overclocked qx6700 cpu a few times too much.
Anyone want to buy a pair of AMD Opteron PCs? $600 will take both.
Edit: And I need to give $450 to social security, Then they won't be taking $25 out every month anymore.

So thanks for trying Fluff.
OH yeah.... yer in California... right... sorry! For some reason I keep thinking you are in Nevada... I mean, I KNOW it's Yermo, but I 'see' desert... ah well.
Hey, maybe it'll go on sale when it's time to buy 'nStuff!
Real world benchmark...
The MAIN excuse I used to justify my expense in buying/building my quad-core machine was that I will be using it in my photography work, specifically, I'll be working with large image files in Photoshop.
I didn't expect the photos to come out better, but I fully expected them to come out faster!
For my test, I opened a largish (11.9 MB) file in the .cr2 format using Photoshop CS2 (I'll update to CS3 in a little while). I opened it on my old system:
AMD XP-M @ 1.98Ghz
DDR 2 x 1GB @ 180Mhz
and it took me 61 seconds.
I opened the same file in the new computer, see specs in 'My System'... running 9 x 380Mhz for a speed of 3.51Mhz.
Less than twice the clock speed... and Photoshop can't use half of my cores. What do you think the final time needed to run the same test was?
Okay... I'm happy now.

Well, I don't know about running it out to the Hundredths... But it is about that... This is a lot of fun; delays that I took for granted were normal just aren't there... converting from .cr2 is just a click away.
