Description

Very nice looking small form factor build. Love the built in handle and the case was surprisingly easy to build with but had little in the form of cable management. Knowing what I know now I would have used a fully modular PSU.

Intel Core i5-2400 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Clock Rate3.1GHz
CPU Temperature While Idle-
CPU Temperature Under Load-

Wow, that case looks like it has terrible airflow! The front fan is blowing directly into the drive cage which mostly blocks it.
Also the CPU fan appears to be blowing directly onto the power supply? Please tell me it's blowing into an intake duct/fan at least!

That's... weird. Maybe I'm just seeing it wrong but I think you're going to have issues with heat. Watch your temperatures!

EDIT: Never mind about the CPU; I checked out the power supply and it looks like your CPU will in fact be blowing into the PS. It's odd, but it's better than nothing. I am worried about that drive cage though, and you still should watch your temps. I recommend getting CoreTemp64 if you don't already.

its doing its job to blow air inside,ever heard of static pressure?

Any problems with the mb bios with the ivy bridge?

This is a sandy bridge build, if i recall correctly.

Love the case just having trouble convincing myself to part with $200+ for it. Any issues with the case?

Besides wishing I had used a modular PSU, that case was rock solid. If $200 is too hefty a sum, check out the TU100A, I don't see much difference besides $80 in your back pocket.

umm... Okay. I guess this is cool. I dont even know

If this is just a non-gaming system, you can tone down the specs a little.

Its intended use is for business users who want something shiny on their desk. Multitasking is common in business and quad cores are much appreciated. This was the least expensive quad core I had available to me at the time of building, and even had I had access to a 2300 it doesn't seem logical to go down from 3.1 to 2.8GHz for $13...especially since many people have that magical 3.0GHz number in their heads as a threshold.
