Default testing how pics look

howdy...so I'm on dialup. I just finished tweaking my pics...I don't think ppl need any further additional how to guides right? . Besides I don't think I took enough pics for that, lol.

so...let's see what I have in the grab bag.

cheapo case that does the job for me! $50!

Athenatech brand
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811190082

It was a "new arrival" while I was shopping parts for my brand spanking new pc

It has a nice modern 400watt psu, case has nice flesh friendly edges, and there's a mobo tray...slides out, makes it nice and easy. 400watts is enough to power the entire midtower if you fully load it, with using 1 vid card and not overclocking.

It's rather plain though, I added the green fan and extra lights. I like the glowing case feet thing ...ahem, I removed some of the silver accents. They were nice but they would have ended up being removed for other parts

oh and I added the temp/clock/hd lcd readout, that's what addes the big blue glow on the front....without it the power button adds it's own nice blue

Could you give me a newegg link to those lights on the bottom? I ran a little under budget on my build and I am using the rest of the money to "Trick it out" so to speak. They will look cool on my case too (Thermaltake Armor Jr. Black, 2 blue LED case fans installed, PSU has another blue LED on back).

Also, I am new so I have to ask, why is the forum so slow all of a sudden? Are they optimising the database or something?

Here\'s a quote I saw once on a /b/ forum a while back, I think it\'s funny:

I\'ve been thinking of \"Heck\" lately. If it even exists, it\'s got to be a much nicer place than \"Heaven\". I mean... all the gay men are down there. You KNOW it\'s well decorated.

Note that I do not in any way condone homophobia or am in any way homophobic. I merely thought that it was clever.

hmm

I actually didn't buy those feet at newegg, though they sell them. They're only $9 (both places)...I bought them from a place I stumbled on that's I think is best for modding, Directron.com. It has what I call "wholesale" shipping. Make a large purchase and you'll see what I mean. I give them my thumbs up...links to both places

Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16800888015

Directron http://store.yahoo.com/directron/footstep.html

Just note...will have wires all over the place with these Sleeve em...or tuck em well

Anyone know a temp display I could mount on the Thermaltake Armor Jr., preferably from newegg?
