the case looks great...

but the innerds couldn't take it...

I hooked up 6 old hard drives.. and let it run...

about an hour later, it died...

but the test wasn't a complete failure... it was cold...

in fact... the only thing that got hot was this thing:

the case and heatsinks remained cool


my case was a success...

the insides are rated at 500W with a +12,14A... which, from what I've learned... sucks...

I imagine the rail couldn't handle the power being forced through it...

oh well...

I will probably put the 300W antec in that case when I get it...

(sorry bout the crappy pics... I don't have a decent camera)

and for my next trick... I am going to replace the coil...

I have another...
whos wire is about twice as thick...
I wonder how well that will work...
