    That'll only cover one area, for the other two bits your gonna need a bigger leaf.

    Here is my setup at home.

    This is my main PC, just upgraded the mobo, cpu cooler and added two uprated case fans two weekends ago. Got a fan speed controller to fit this weekend. Notice my Compaq deskpro, that bad boy is running a 600Mhz P3, it still has the Windows 95 sticker on the side...

    And this is a little light reading! I have read all the books on the bottom shelf, just the top shelf to go.

    Yep. I like it. Lots of room. What you can't see are the four towers underneath the desk top to the left of the monitor.

    I'm pretty fortunate to have it as it was something my vocational rehab counselor got for me when I started studying at home. Don't know what I would do without it to tell the truth. It's a big sucker. It takes up approximately 85 sq ft of floor space.

    The nice task chair is great too. I wouldn't be able to sit at this workstation as many hours as I do if I didn't have it. It was another goodie my vocational rehab counselor purchased for me. As I said on another thread, they were really good to me and got stuff for me that 99% of their clients just never see. I was just super fortunate to have great rehab counselors who wanted to see my effort pay off. All of them pretty much went above and beyond the call of duty in what they did for me.

    Edit: 85 sq. ft == 7.9 sq meters

    Took a few pics of the inside of my PC, I fitted a Zalman fan speed controller today. It was the last thing that needed doing after I upgraded the mobo and CPU cooler a few weeks ago. Its running much quieter now (sorry about the dodgy pictures, Goodmans camera...).

    OK. It looks a lot like the Thermaltake case with the lighted fans in the front and the entire front being open to airflow.

    How do you like that Zalman heatsink? I've always looked at those and thought they looked pretty efficient, but have never wanted to spring for one. Are they worth the premium?

    I was running my C2D on the stock cooler for 12 months. The core temps were 40 degrees C idle, went up to about 50 on full load. After fitting the Zalman cooler, the same CPU is now 10 degrees C cooler, 30 or less on idle and 41 is the highest I have been able to get it running [email protected] with 100% load on both cores for hours. The Zalman cooler was worth every penny. Overclocked my CPU from 2.4Ghz to 2.6Ghz, still the same core temps.

    That's pretty impressive. I'll have to get one next time I build a system.

    I have heard good things about the Zalman cooler, nearly as much as I have heard good things about Zalman headphones.
