W00T! New Machine

First pics… The front of the Coolermaster case… Managed to get the card reader, as well as three USB 2.0 ports in front. Good start

The back of the case. Yep – 8 USB 2.0 ports, 2 Firewire, 2 Gigabit ethernet, 2 x DVI.

Drool – 4 x 2Gb RAM, Quadcore 9400, 2 x 500Gb SATA, and best of all PLENTY of space to grow If you look carefully you can see that there’s four spare SATA ports on the motherboard just waiting for me to ramp up the file storage.

And just check out the size of those fans on everything… Heaps of empty space and the big fans – should be great for cooling/ventilation.

Booted it up into the very sorry looking 32Bit Vista Home that was installed on it – which can only address 3.5Gb RAM – and the WEI score for everything other than the graphics was 5.9 (no graphics driver installed so it only got a 1.0). Now installing 64Bit Vista Ultimate to see what it can do.
