Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

  • Maelstrom System Build

    This is a system that I built from spare parts lying around. Case is the NZXT Source 210 White, which is the same OEM design as the Bitfenix Shinobi. The three case fans are hardwired to 5v and there is a voltage reducer on the CPU fan line.















    Components:
    NZXT Source 210 White Case
    Seasonic S12 II 520W PSU
    Intel Core i5 2500K CPU
    ASUS P8Z68 Pro-M Mobo
    8gb G.Skill DDR3 1333 RAM
    MSI N460GTX Hawk 1gb GPU
    EVGA Superclock Heatsink w/ Fractal Design 120mm (undervolted)
    Intel SSD320 80gb SSD
    1x NZXT 120mm rear exhaust and 2x Nexus Realsilent 120mm top exhaust all at 5v
    NZXT 24-pin Single Sleeved extension cable

    I highly recommend this case, its inexpensive and highly capable and expandable

      Thanks. I wanted to try out those parts in a system and they go really well together.

      One thing that I've never done before is to install the GPU in the bottom slot so that it overhangs the USB, front audio, sata cables. The USB and f-audio cables were run underneath the motherboard anyways.

      Basically, I was trying to create a super-clean system in a white case.
