Wow, that video card bends a lot under the load of the cooling system, I would do something to support the card better.

Thanks for pointing out, didn't notice when i installed it... Fixed now, it was bending down because of the pipe coming from the CPU. shortened it and now it's ok :)

I know its hard to make out, but the two labels on the front say "UNCLE SOCKS" and "CHINESE WARLORD" respectively. This server was named after a background randomly placed on all the image servers. This one got characters from this series:

I can't remember all of them, but one was called "moocow" and had an up close shot of a cow's mouth licking a camera.

I'm doing an internship at a software development company, so here's the specs on my work machine:

Dell Dimension 5150

Intel Pentium D Dual Core 2.8 GHz

1 GB DDR2 RAM

ATI Radeon Xpress 3150 (?)

It has dual displays (not dells), a 20" DVI SXGA and a 19" VGA SXGA, and a Microsoft IntelliMouse

Not super-speedy, but works pretty well, and I love having dual displays :D

Cleaned up the cabling completely this time. Looks way better than the first system that was inside it.

Hi there hardware people! I wanted to post the specs (and soon pictures) of my Shuttle SS59G LAN-BOX! It was built for, you guessed it, LAN parties and gaming/general use in the bedroom.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Pentium 4 630 3.0GHz (2MB L2 Cache model, runs OK but wanna upgrade to a 3.2 or 3.4GHz model for a small boost)

Cooling: Shuttle I.C.E. 92mm with a Zalman ZM-F2BL 92mm blue LED fan. I'm going to get another one of these Zalman fans soon to screw onto the back of the case for a push/pull configuration so that none of the hot air goes back into the system once it has gone through the I.C.E. heatsink. I will also get a front 3.5inch fan controller than can take more than two fans and is silver to replace the black one that can only take two fans.

Motherboard: Propriety Shuttle board with a socket 775/AGP/DDR SIS 661FX chipset

RAM: Kingston Value RAM 2x512MB DDR 400Mhz Dual Channel (gonna upgrade to 2x1GB RAM in the next two weeks so don't worry bout my low amount of RAM at present!)

Hard Drive: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB (wanted lots of storage cause the shuttle case only holds two 3.5inch drives and one of them is taken up with my fan controller)

Graphics Card: HIS ATI Radeon x1950PRO 256MB (did the job at first with the 1024x768 res it currently is on but its going with a bigger 19 or 20inch soon so I'm getting a Powercolor Radeon HD 4670 1GB with a Zalman VNF100 cooler...pretty much the fastest AGP card you can buy!)

Sound Card: Integrated AC97 (would think about a cheap new sound card but really I wouldn't tell the difference much and the only PCI slot is going to be taken up by the Zalman GPU cooler soon)

Optical Drive: Some cheapo DVD drive which is only used for OS and games installing then I take it out to save weight (yes, weight) and make the front panel look nicer

Case: Shuttle "G" chassis

Power Supply: Shuttle PC40 250W with two Sythe Mini-Kaze Ultra 40mm fans (these little 1U power supplies are very tough little things and a 250W model can run a modern system like the other, more powerful, PC in my sig fine!)

Monitor: LOL...17inch CRT monitor made by IBM about 10 years ago... :P Gonna upgrade to an LCD like my main system soon!

Keyboard/Mouse: Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600/Basic Logitech mouse (being replaced with a Logitech G5 along with the other upgrades)

Speakers: Hey, I don't need speakers. I have some headphones I got for free!

Operating System: Windows XP Pro SP3 heavily nLited. Might consider Windows 7 some time in 2010, wouldn't be too bad at all with the DX10 GPU and the 2GB RAM when I get them.

Pictures will be up in about two weeks when I get the new RAM/GPU/GPU cooler/extra CPU fan/mouse!

Sorry if this has speeeeling mistakes in it, it is 11.45PM right now on the 31st of December. Happy New Year! :D

EDIT: I cut the rear fan grille out today with my trusty dremel and temps dropped by a few degrees. It doesn't look clean, but when I get the other fan screwed to the back you won't be able to see the sharp edges of the cut.

EDIT2: I have got the new RAM in, but the GPU cooler is still on the way. Have mounted a fan on the outside of the case and also got the G5. I did try using the GPU just without the case on so it fit but for some reason the latest drivers did not install at all and the drivers on the disk caused a loop of reboots. So I'm going to stick with the x1950 until I get the GPU cooler to make it go in the shuttle permanently, then I will reformat and start over.

Pics are finally up! Take a look!

img0008p.th.jpg

This is a standard front on shot of the shuttle. I put a DVD drive in and don't have the silver fan controller but ah well, looks OK.

img0009r.th.jpg

Side view. Was thinking of cutting out a window but can't be bothered now and I like the "Shuttle" written on the side.

img0010v.th.jpg

Rear view. You can see that I have cut the fan grille out and also mounted the fan to the outside of the case. It is powered on but you can't see the blue LEDs because of the light. Look at my other pics to see the LEDs! Not a massive amount of ports but its got firewire and I can put an ESATA bracket in the PCI slot next to the video card so I'm pretty set.

img0011j.th.jpg

Here's the video card, the HD 4670 with a passive Zalman cooler. You can't really see but I have cut part of the drive cage out to allow the third heatpipe to fit. The card has not exceeded 50C at idle all day which is slightly better than my old X1950pro did with a fan running at 35%.

img0012kp.th.jpg

The PSU side. Nothing much to say, looks all neat and tidy enough.

img0013ox.th.jpg

This is where the HDD, optical drive, fans, and fan controller all connect so it's pretty messy. Under the cables is where the fan would normally mount in front of the heatsink. You can also see part of the passive GPU cooler which takes up the PCI slot behind it.

img0016y.th.jpg

Let there be light! Sorry for blurry photo, it's hard with a disco ball!

img0017k.th.jpg

Better photo of the fan. Note the Champion System sticker. Got that at a mountain bike race but it goes well with PC's too :P

img0019dp.th.jpg

Going cross-country.

So yeah, other pics I did have somehow were lost off ImageShack or something, but anyway :lol:

You made that picture with the axle in your hand? :sneaky:

Small system, not the newest one but those shuttles do look good indeed. Digeratiprime is a HUGE fan of those too by the way.

Haha I should have put the axe leaning up against it to showcase how tough these little things are. It gets bits cut out of it, carried around outside to take that photo, a way better graphics card and HDD than it should have, I reckon it would withstand an axe no probs :whistle:

Yeah its pretty old but I got the mobo, case, PSU, optical drive and CPU second hand so all those things cost me under $200. Then just got the RAM, HDD and graphics card as well as the main fan, one PSU fan and fan controller all new. Its pretty quiet too but I still have to replace the other PSU fan with a slightly quieter one and maybe put a Noctua fan in for a push/pull CPU heatsink configuration.

Thanks for the tip on image hosting, I will check it out.
