I upgraded my rig again this time with a new Coolermaster HAF case and a lovely Q9650 due to the recent price drop.



Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 at 3Ghz

4GB 800Mhz DDR2 RAM

1x SATA Western Digital 500 GB, 1x Seagate 200 GB hard drive

4870x2 2GB Sapphire ATI Radeon video card

32" LG LCD HDTV at 1920x1080 1080p

Antec TruePower Quattro 1000W ATX Power Supply

1x 20 LG DVD Burner

1x LG SATA BluRay & HDDVD Combo Drive

Running Windows XP Professional x64 SP2 and Server 2003 SP2

Gigabyte GA-EP45-DQ6 motherboard

Coolermaster HAF 932 full tower case

At least this time I did some cable management, though not perfect but better than my previous rigs.

Also, I need a new cooler because my Zalman can't handle a quad core when overclocked.

Yeah, I saw that too. I payed the same price for my Q9450 (2.66GHz), and I could get a Q9650 (3GHz) instead!

However that is today, I got my Q9450 six months ago.

new specs!

Core 2 Duo E6750

MSI Neo P45

ECS nVidia 9600GT

M-Audio Delta AP 24/96

6gb G-Skill DDR2 (will be 8gb of DDR2-800 by the end of the month)

HL DVD-RW drive (have yet to get one with Lightscribe, but i can still wait)

Apple Mighty Mouse

Logitech wireless ergonomic keyboard (i'm getting a normal wired USB soon, can't stand wireless much longer)

FSP-300W (may be replaced with a 420HX soon if necessary)

some generic card reader (but i need to replace it with one that can read SDHC)

1x HP f1703 (the second one died, i'm waiting for a good price on a new panel)

For cooling, I've got a Scythe Ninja Rev A on the CPU, a Thermalright HR-05 on the Northbridge, and an Accelero S1 Rev 2 on the 9600GT. I would have done more on the southbridge, but i'd have to get the Thermalright HR-05 SLI, and even with that, I don't think it would fit with the chipset on an angle.

Temps are solid and low, CPU idling around 28C, GPU idling around 35C, and both drives idling around 34C. Northbridge sits around 30C, southbridge is around 26C.

I finally wired up the front panel audio as well, works like a charm, even though it's not exactly wired correctly. since there were no jack detection wires, i just plugged in the audio headers so it will actually play audio out front and back at the same time, the back doesn't turn off.

also reinstalled XP and Ubuntu, i finally have full support for my hardware in Ubuntu, graphics look amazing, windows is much more responsive now as well.

the new optical drive is also shorter, and gives a lot more breathing room to the case, it's nearly flush with the end of the drive cage. the inside of the case feels much roomier than it was, and much more complete, with the card reader and front panel audio now working. I'm also glad that the Scythe Ninja still fits, when i first got the P45 board i looked at it, and saw right away that the socket was closer to the edge than my old P965 board, which was a close call anyway. Luckily it all fits perfectly.

and considering everything i'm running now, aside from the chipset and graphics card (which weren't out at the time) this is the exact setup i wanted to have when i built this computer for the first time.

and with a spare drive running vista, my experience score is a 5.3, lowest being the hard drive at 5.3 (80gb WD SATA-II) , and the CPU being 5.5, all other scores happily at 5.9

I must say the inside of your case is super clean and clutterfree! Quite awesome! My case insides are another matter with all the wires lol.

Anyway my machine is in my sig as below but it is getting a bit of upgrade from the 8800 Ultras to GTX 285 SSCs so that should be interesting. They should be here in the next few days. Cant wait!
