    Well having been full of cold for most of the weekend, I woke up this morning feeling quite a lot better. The sun was shining, birds were singing, I could breathe through my nose !! WOW !.

    So, what did I do today ....... ?

    A day out at the seaside?.......No

    Some gardening maybe?...........No

    Wash and vaccum the car.........No

    None of the above. Infact i thought that the best possible way to make use of the fine weather we were having was to go to Maplins and buy a shiny new ATX case :)

    and here it is

    Just a bare shell, I know but I had been meaning to sort my old tower out for some time now bacause i had started to run out of space, and the airflow in the old tower was soooo bad that i had to run it with the cover off (Overclocked AMD 2200+ Athlon toaster) You will see in the pic below that in my old case my c: drive was sitting on the bottom hanging on by its power lead!!

    So what better to do on a sunny bank holiday than tear it apart and start again hehehehe.

    The new tower has 8 3.5" bays which means i can space my drives out a bit and none of them have to swing from their cables :) It also has two large fans drawing air in across the HD mount area so hopefully no more drive toasting either :)

    It's now 4pm (3pm when i started, yeah i got up late too) the weather is still great and there is plenty of time left to wander down to the local pub and sit in the garden with pint of Stella.

    Happy Holidays folks.

    me, i'm looking at getting a new desktop case as i've had this 1 for about 4-5yrs. i don't like towers for my personal use as all i have to do is flip the lid off & i'm inside the case compared to a tower.

    got cold feet before the wedding & took off. when either found or called the police, she said she was kidnapped & taken to 1 of the us western states than admitted she lied about that. appears she might be charged for lying that she was kidnapped.
