Renewing the old Beast
I built this case about 4-5 years ago and I have done a few upgrades along the way. I got my money's worth out of this system but now its time to give her a refit.
Here she sits giving us all tons of entertainment but she is starting to have some errors. We are finding it hard to fit any more data on the 5 hard drives. So I tore her down and brought her to the shop. I found tons of dust and few other errors.
As Parts Come Tumbling In
As I get the parts I will list them. This is a media system so drives are most important. 4 of the 2TB drives will be configured in a mirror array.
Haugpauge 2250 digital tuner or Ceton quad tuner.
OCZ 700w Mod Extreme
5x Seagate 2TB SATA drives
Intel 40GB SSD
Intel i3 550
Mushkin 2x 2GB DDR3 1333
Antec VFD w/ remote
StarTech 5 drive SATA bay
LG BlueRay DVD drive SATA
I have started on the case and I filed away the case where it was out of allignment. Next I want to do some Dremal work where the cards slide in. I should have all the parts by then and I will start assembly.
