That is my rig. The Raidmax Iceberg case houses an Asrock P45R2000-Wifi motherboard, cradling an Intel E6850 at stock clocks. The pci-e x16 slot rocks a dated evga nVidia 8800 gtx. Underneath that monstrosity, I have a creative x-fi and a spare 80 gig Sata drive. Up top, we have an Ultra 1000 watt power supply and a generic 16x dvdrw.Image

Before my girlfriend spilled water all over it and fried the whole thing, I was running a 10,2 series Macbook with Intel 2 Duo 2.00 Ghz processors, 1GB of RAM, 80GB of HDD Space and a ridiculous 64 MB integrated Intel graphics chip. I want to get a new i7 soon, though.

Basic pic, since the computer's toasted:

Here is my new build with the Silverstone Grandia 01 black

full speks:

Case Silverstone Grandia 01b with included card reader
Motherboard MSI Pro-E Stock Cooling
Processor Intel Core I7 920
RAM 6GB Mushkin Redline DDR3
Power Supply Antec Earthwatts 650
Video Card EVGA 9800GT 512 with my own custom cooling solution basically I took off the loud and weak fan and plastic shroud and then just have a oversize quiet 120mm SilenX fan blowing on the exposed stock heat sink with an attatched fan controller not the prettiest but it works and is very cost effective!
Sound Card Echo Gina 24
Blue Ray Drive Plextor P67-2024
Keyboard Logitech Media Board Pro
Mouse Logitech VX Nano
Monitor LG Flatron W2242P
Speakers Altec Lansing FX3022
Storage Drive 500GB SATA2 Seagate
OS Vista 64

I just built this system and have not overclocked it yet as I have to read more about overclocking the cell memory.....I am liking the case even though there are some close tolerances with the main motherboard power connection/RAM slots and the DVD/CD/Blue Ray drive cage, when I overclock the CPU I may just go with the stock Intel heatsink and just try to install a different larger more powerful
fan........not into paying $$ for a massive ugly cooler that won't fit in my case! The video card does get hot so I leave the top off the case.

Thanks for the great reviews and happy building!

Maybe some sort of sound baffling?
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

Shouldn't you wait for a while? because the design isn't very good...as the warm air gets trapped in the "casing".
