Default New computer case....Finally

I finally got a new computer case. After shopping around for awhile i settled on a Thermaltake. Very nice case. It has 5 fans, but can only control 2 fans so we added a card reader with 2 more controls, rpm, and temp readout. Looks good just need a neon blue tube to add more light.

awesome....i'd like to get a new case like that...looks good...should be very cool in there. Heard Thermal Take is the best in cooling solutions.

That looks like it set you back a pretty penny or two though.

i love my thermal take.... it looks like this :








It is EXTEREMELY sold and i probably will keep it though a few upgrades barring any major form factor changes... the only downside is that its its a little large for my 1000 square foot condo

I will give you that their new stuff is much more usable... but as an IT guy, ive always found the 'idiot friendly' interface of pre OSX apple to be annoying(osx and later being based on a unix system makes it a much better operating system). Also their cost is rediculous. i'll build you a nice amd64 based system running a copy of debian linux that will rival that G5 for far less dollars.

G5'* are very impressive. I like that pic.

Its funny looking at these cases you kids buy these days, back in my day (5 years ago when I was 16) we had to modify cases majorly to make 'em look like those posted above.

I still use my custom modded Antec SOHO case from who knows when with a side window I had to cut and install, blue cold cathode lighting, 4 high speed case fans, and a front mounted toggle switch board to control fan speeds. Now you can buy a case with all that stuff and then some for dirt cheap...damn nation!

LOL

'back in the day' -- i dont consider myself able to say that yet regarding those times and we are the same age
