Hi guys i've currently decided on building a new project that's primary activity will be internet surfing / office work e.g. word processing and watching videos. Its going to be called project green as it is going to be run with a e1200 with the lowest v-core voltage it can stably boot into windows with.
Why i here you say??
Well here's the outline
It all started when i me and a few mates decided to under-clock our computers with the lowest v-core possible enough to boot into windows and run stress test without errors and this got me thinking. I am currently after a low power consumption pc but due to lack of funds, (thanks to this bloody recession
) i couldn't afford to build or buy a new pc for a good while yet. So why not use the current spare stock to build the pc that i need.
This is the hardware being used:
Gigabyte GA-73-VM-S2 MOBO
2GB OCZ platinum 800mhz ram
coolermaster 460w extreme 80+ psu
360gb 16mb cache WD primary drive
80gb Ide backup drive
The whole system is currently running in an antec300 case but due to the mobo's very small size, it looks like a small speck of dust in a big space
. Very good temps though
So a new case is needed in Matx factor that has good cooling potential but i will be generally happy with a case with 120mm intake and exhaust fans. The cpu will be running as high as it can with around 0.85v and 0.95v maximum and the whole system will be running xp64 until i get a copy of windows 7 premium.
So there you go guys please leave any comments as they are all greatly appreciated.
Are there any good cases that suit the requirements for around £40 or less?
Cheers in advance
