Default Da IceCase (800k pics)

IceCase, name comes from my original nick IceTea[GeNeX]. (oh and I had to come up with something REAL fast, but you figured that out alraeady didn't you)
Planet hosts the images, so blame them if it goes wrong.

The [H]ware:
Chieftec DX01-W, medium white case, NO door.
Epox 8RDA+, copper active NB, default passive of SB, and some alu on mosfets and voltage regulators.
AMD xp1800+ JIUHB.
Zalman CNPS7000, slightly modded to fit AMD XP.
TwinMOS PC3200 Winbopnd BH5
TT active memory cooling kit (really don't know why I got this one)
MSI GF4Ti4200 Vivo dual VGA 128MB.
TT GF4cooler 5V for silence.
Seagate cuda 4 20GB
Seagate cuda 5 120GB
Liteon 52-24-52 CD rewriter
Liteon 16*DVD
5*Papst NGM 80mm, 3front 2 rear.

Mods
Self made baybus 7-0-12V selection for front-rear-chipset fans.
Cut all fanguards for better airflow.
one slab of dynamat against vibrations
sound isolating foam where I could put some
moved an IDE connector to fit DVD and CD-RW on one cable.

Pics:
General vieuw, before sound isolation.

Top shot of case.

Closeup of front bays.

Corner of shame, bit of a messy place, but I had to put the cable's somewhere.

Detail shot of the baybus, pretty simple stuff, but effective.


My 8 port level one switch, lightly modded, used to have a fan, but I removed it for silencing (was internally connected). It failed (crashed?) one summer, so I decided to fix it, the "right" way.


Results of all this:
XP1800+ @ 2200MHz (11*200MHz). 1.725 Vcore
DDR 200MHz (400MHz) CL 2-2-2-6 @ 2.9VDimm
Running pretty cool, 48C was the max today for CPU, I'm in an attic that's pretty hot right about now (put in a wooden seat and I can ask admission for a sauna, get it)
Running pretty stable, sometimes craps out on my while booting windows with a 0x000000C5 error. Nothing helps exept turning it off for a second. Then it will run again at full speed.
PC itself is very silent @ 7V, due to soundproofing, the chipset can't be heard, so I'm going to leave that @ 12V. Also because of personal cooling requirements, the papst @12V also fades into nothing.

Bios shot:

There you have it.
Enjoy.

Does the sound isolation really work, I mean is the difference audible?

and doesn't it create a temp boost?

Well I can run my chipset fan at 12V without it disturbing me. Of course, it's a bit subjective since I have a big fan right behind me keeping my head cool ATM. I get the feeling that my PC is cooler then myself.

Temp boost is negligable. With 6 fans moving air trough the case, the heat dissapation of the metal is nearly zero.

I got a dynamat taped to the bottom to prevent vibrations too. The sound dampening of this is questionable, but it might be good stopping vibrations. I used to have a PC that I could feel trough my mouse. Small note: it was standing free on the floor.

Providing you have enough ventilation, not too much of a problem with a Xaser 3.
Don't try to muffle a Delta Screamer however, won't do much good.

I Think I'm going to rename it.
The IceTea Impreza.

Got the idea of a collegue of mine, he's a bit fond of cars and he loves these. They pack a whole lot of power, but they look pretty ordinairy.


I got 2 other PC's here ATM. But I'm not going to do a report on them. One's my internet server, the other my file server.
Since I images most of my CD's on this one, and using daemontools over network instead of swapping CD's. I kinda need both of these running all the time.
