Those Plastic exhaust pipes only come on some cases, I believe it sits above the CPU to help airflow?

Yes, it´s an intake aimed at the cpu fan, it´s not an exhaust pipe :P. and indeed it keep your CPU a bit cooler, I use them too in my cheap a** 40US$ cases :).

I used to use an intake pipe on mine too, although it was a little more ghetto (old peanut can :w00t: ). A while ago I got fed up with the noise and ripped everything out, mounted it on a board and stuck it up on a beam in the basement. I converted my DVDRW to a USB unit and routed all my cables through the floor. Now it's in the cool basement and I hear nothing but silence. :thumbup

I like that.. It's seriously more weird than I am.. :blink:

No, I like taxying down the runway in my 747. Maybe I can watch the inflight movie. If I could hear it. I always wanted to watch movies on a little screen and in an uncomfortable office chair. Must get VISTA with the built in Media Center. :no:

Maybe I should get one of these?

The blueprint showed a central PowerPC that was complemented by 1024 (that is one thousand and twenty four) 8-bit "processing elements" on a single and - according to IBM - low-cost die.

Rapport is already offering the Kilocore256, which comes with 256 processing elements and provides a performance of "25 GB operations/second at well under a single watt of power," IBM said. The firm claims that the Kilocores "feature the most advanced, dynamic architecture available today in working silicon"

You're right, if the fan is blowing on the CPU, then it's a sucker, and not a blower. :whistle:

Yes, buy one of those and throw your money away on something you will never use ;):P. IBM introduced those CPUs on the Cbit I think. Are you going to write your own OS like for the XBox360 again? :thumbup It will NOT run windows like you use it on your small rig.

I got the last of my parts in the other day so my box is complete after 4 months of saving money to order here and there. Last of the parts were the ram, cathodes, and sata adapters for my old ata drives. Removed the 80gig drive and added the audigy gamer from my old computer. Also gave the logitech mx1000 to my wife, i never could get used to it. Put my dvdrw in external enclosure to use on different computers. This computer should last me a few years till i build a new one for vista after it's been out a while :D Final pictures sorry about the crap quality, my nikon 2200 isnt up to par anymore:

finally decided to take pics of my cleaned up case

and as you can see, ive removed my ream from from my powerstream and i have a 92mm fan mounted right between the hdd bay and the psu. the psu fans are just kinda loud and this fan give me better airflow and less noise. i also have a fan in fron of the hdd bay.

The next build i do, I'm getting that same case. I should have gotten the p180 instead of this flimsy lanboy but i wanted a good case with a window, never had a window before :)

This is an old picture of a P2-233. It used to be my router for my cable-modem internet connection. This was before Linksys, Netgear, etc. made comodity routers. It was Linux and ran Squid cache, DNS caching, DHCP, ipchains firewall, etc.

If it runs 'amazing', then why don't you swap your opteron 170 @ 2.6ghz for his p2? :D:D:D

lol, for what he does it runs very well. and whats funny is that it runs faster than the p4 2.8ghz comps at my school which are not nlited, but im thinking of doing something about that when i get to be the network administartor :)

when u log into the comp, it should not freeze on you...

well even stuff like the games that come with windows... my school installed the basic windows on a computer and installed the programs it needed, edited some stuff, then ghosted it, then installed to all of the other comps over the network. now there is just a bunch of stupid stuff they did like for the games i was talking about, they deleted the game .exe's from the windows folder but not the shortcuts.... or they could easily have used nlite. they just have no clue what they are doing since my school just got xp this year, 2000 rly sucked.

that sucks, here we hate orphan shortcuts, looks really messy. Our computers are totally secured as well, the user only sees the programs we ant them to use, they cant get into areas we dont want them to.
