After looking endlessly for excuses to build a SFF rig, the girly's failing HD was finally the answer! ;)

I gutted her system, sold some parts, and threw it in a SFF box. I must say, this thing is pretty badass, so small and packs a punch as far as performance goes... Contains 1 AGP 8x and 1 PCI. I wanted to throw in my old Audigy, but she needs a modem.

Here are its now revised contents:
P4 2.6c 800FSB
865 Mobo
1gb Corsair DDR400
Gigabyte 9600xt with Tweakmonster sinks!
36gb Raptor SATA 10K RPM
52-32-52 CDRW Liteon
260w PSU with 19A on the 12V! :)

I want to run overdrive on the 9600xt, but I'm a little wary of it... The P4 processor, 10K RPM Hard Drive and video card are likley enough to cook an egg :) Overdrive will just make it cook faster..heh... The air this thing spits it is HOT. And thats just idling. Like a free hand warmer :)

Here are some pics! :nanahump:

Yes, very nice. And that warm air coming out is a good thing, at least it isn't staying IN the case. :)

heh, my old case was like that... with a box that small i wouldn't really be surprised. if anything add another fan, or replace in with a higher CFM if it bothers you... riiiight, like you needed to know that, lmao.

anyway, nice box, looks neat too :D
