I have been quite busy lately.

First up, I am working on a review of the HDA Mystique 7.1 Gold (distributed by www.BlueGears.com). I can not tell you how nice it is to have Dolby Digital Live back again.

Next up will be a quick review of the Lian Li V1000 Plus (provided by www.3DCool.com).

And finally will be the article that prompted me to change my sig away from just car stuff, Quiet SLI - Can you aircool and not go insane?

Featuring SilenX 600W power supply and 120mm fans along with Artic Cooling NV6 Rev2 and a Thermalright XP-90 with Panaflo fan, I am setting off to prove that an SLI system need not sound like a jet engine. Thanks again go to www.3DCool.com for assistance in making this project a reality.

The machine says thanks...

It has been quite a chore to get everything as sorted as it is. There will be more details in the upcoming articles.

I have a similar case from CODEGEN with metal feet. I have had pretty good temps with this style case as it allows for great airflow and a unique look. The only thing I don't like about it is worrying about spilling something on top of it. :eek:

Look forward to your review. I'm still trying to pump out a review for the CODEGEN version of the case, just been busy.

edit: Does that case allow room for a fan on the top of the case?

i am all about info on that sound card. i have an audigy 2 and i hate it. i really enjoy the onboard better, with the nvidia drivers, cause there arent any bugs in games. and to me.. the "enhanced" precision of eax doesnt matter cause i am running around blowing stuff up too quickly anyway! :)

I just removed my A2zs and went back to onboard sound. Its so nice to use NvMixer again :)

The case is awesome but has its challenges. As soon as I am done with the sound card review, the spotlight will turn to the case.
