FYI the cpu's spin down to 800mhz under no load but they actually run at 2800mhz or 2.8ghz

Do you really need all that just to run a couple of glorified air conditioners? /me trying (unsuccessfully) to repress the ugly green jealous bone/

Very nice!

It is up and running, but it's still a work in progress. More fans and more HDD's
Don't think I'll have any issues "stuffing" them in scratch

"Cool" case! Hope the work in progress is fun for you. Just put the case in front of one of your mondo coolers and you won't need so many fans. Smile

<THREAD HIJACK>

Well since the penguin is showing off his new hardware to manage the mondo chillers, thought there was no reason to start a new thread to show off my new laptops.

Some nice looking computers there Welan, BDQuick! I have been wanting to build a new system this year but events have conspired to prevent it so far. It seems when I have the time, I have no money and when I have money, I do not have the time. Sad

Sure has been a cold Winter in my neck of the forest this year. Hope everyone got what the deserved for the Holidays geek

Mattb, sorry about the weather... But with all this new hardware I couldn't resist running the mondo chillers full blast Embarassed

That is one potent machine Welan. You could easily command the Enterprise with that. I'd love to build one like it, but my wife keeps squandering the money on groceries.

Is that a monitor or a TV? That should be wide enough to show bozo's location on the chiller map without scrolling sideways.

Wht's the matter, getting older and having trouble seeing that small type? Very Happy Yup, must be getting older, keeping the roll of TP handy just in case! Laughing Just jealous, I went to two 21" CRTs so I could manage to see things, and my computer desk is right next to the bathroom door. Sad Embarassed

Yes, as time passes so do my eyes. It's 32in tv working as my monitor. Works very nicely I might add. Oh and Bozo, the TP is just in case...the bathroom is right next door, but ya never know.

I would write a lengthy, witty retort but my fingers are too stiff and numb from the cold. Sad Suspect (blue from cold...)
