    Piloux, this thing is going to totally own the original BlackMesa; no small feat indeed, even for the inventor! :rock:

    So the fans will be mounted externally?
    Between the top of the PSU and roof of the case there's only 53MM clearence, and the bix2 (how do you write that 2 BTW?) is 45mm so that leaves 7mm.


    Cheers,
    Mike

    that's right, the fans will be externals, I like the external fans look on Blackmesa, i think it gives a nice industrial air system aspect :)

    about the ² you ve got a key on the left top of your keyboard, don't you?

    President?! Screw that! No one wants PilouX as president!

    PilouX for the new leader of the free world! GLOBAL DOMINATION!

    Sorry, I got a little carried away there. Bondo and Fiberglass fumes distorting my thoughts :p

    Anyway, PilouX, did you cut that out with an exacto knife? Please explain.

    Great job so far... again... :D

    they sent you a 9200se, instead of an x800 pro.. how can these people be allowed to be near pc components.. thats really a case of asking, and paying for 'on', and getting 'off'.. absolute opposites :wallbash:

    i see the dfi has them green ram/ide channels.. is that going to mess with your colour theme.. whats different too the all orange, made-for-a-hl-mod mobo, any extras?

    anyway, i might have a lil game of CS..

    keep up the good work, and hope that graphics thing gets sorted.. but watch yourself, they might end up sendin ya fx5200 next.. :eek:
