This fucking beast runs like a CHAMP! I've been monitoring the internal case temperature and it stays around 29~31'C. The CPU temp resides around 32~34'C while doing normal activity.
I was able to turn Doom3 up to super ultra mega destroyer choade graphics and turned on 16x anti-aliasing. Never choked once. Meanwhile the internal case temp rose to ~35'C. I couldn't check the CPU temp while playing, but after I shut down Doom3 I ran my monitoring software that came with the motherboard (Doom3 isn't alt+tab friendly) and the CPU temp was at ~34'C.
How's that for fucking AWESOME?
:: AMD Athlon 64 3000+
:: 1GB (2x512) Corsair DDR RAM
:: Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-SLI Mainboard
:: eVGA GeForce 7800GT PCIe x16
:: Thermaltake SViking Chassis
:: Lite-On DVD+-RW Combo Drive
The case is nice. It has the cool temp guage up front with two knobs to control the two case fans. Sounds like a vacuum when I turn them all the way up, but apparently I don't need to!
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go play with it some more.
By the way, everyone needs to check out this song:
Day of Fire - Fade Away
But don't download it. That's bad ... *wink wink*
