You know you built your machine right when you get results like this…

I just played CoD4 for about an hour with the resolution set to 1280x1024@75hz (My LCD’s maximum res/refresh) with all the graphics turned up as high as they go…

First of all, it ran beautifully.

Second, my CPU core temps never reached 40°C and my overclocked videocard just barely reached 50°C.

My computer is almost silent. The CPU and videocard are passively-cooled. The whole case is cooled by two 1200rpm fans, and one 500rpm fan. (Scythe Kaze Jyu-Ni 12cm sleeve bearing fans) The CPU performance no doubt due to Scythe’s massive Ninja Cu copper heatsink, in conjunction with Innovation Cooling’s micronized synthetic diamond thermal compound. (I’m not making this shit up!)

Until I finish the write-up on the construction process, here’s some Hardware Porn™ for you to drool over. (And more of that to come, as well.)

A peek inside the mad, mad, mind of Baka-chan. Animator, artist, hater of stupid people, and evil genius. Look upon the undoing of all order in the universe, and tremble.
