This computer "arrived" (I had to pick it up after 2 failed deliveries in a row) in time for my birthday, September 12th. The only thing on the invoice that was different from what I ordered was the CPU cooling fan. I requested the Raidmax Maxcool and was given the Cooler Master Hyper TX2. A minor upgrade, thanks! It, as well as the rest of the system, is SUPER quiet, and I love this new rig. Enough of the gushing, though, let's see some pics!


Here is the package as received. A little dusty, but looks relatively undamaged.



The inside of the package once you open it up. There was plenty of packing foam that kept it nice and secure.


The goodies. The T-shirt, accessory bag, and all the extra drivers, games, and misc. software that come in the motherboard's box.


As has been previously mentioned, the system itself comes in the retail packaging for the case itself. No surprises there.


The case itself. Arrived totally unscathed, so far so good!


Mod window with plastic cover still on.


The CPU cooling fan. As you can see, it is a MONSTER! No overheating worries here. =)


Sorry for the lack of flash in these early shots, I'm new to the camera.

A glamour shot of the case fired up and running.


And finally, my desk.

In fact, just to make sure I've gotten the point of the CPU fan's bigness across, here's a new shot of it:

The dial on the front is a fan speed controller. It does in fact control the actual speed of the case fans, but even at maximum it's deathly quiet so I don't know why you'd ever turn it down.

Now that you bring up audio, though, I have had a bit of a problem getting sound to come through clearly. The headphone jack in the front gives me a bit of buzzing, and in the rear, the two USB ports on the right don't seem to work.

It shouldn't be anything a bit of troubleshooting won't fix.

Hi
 
Nice pics.
 
It is hard to tell from the pictures and I am not familiar with your mobo, but are your memory sticks in the right slots for dual channel?
 
Good luck to you.

Yup,,, Looks like you need to move one of the sticks from slot 2 to slot 3 to enalbe DDR. Check you manual, but I'm sure you've got your memory in the wrong slots. DDR-> 1&3 or 2&4
 
Check it out!!!
 
Yup,,, just checked the manual and you need to move the stick in slot 2 over to slot 3!!!
