System was upgraded after power supply popped a cap and burned out the water cooling pump. I will give it to Silverstone, even after it started to burn the power supply was still running the computer stable. Only reason I noticed anything was the sudden ozone smell, followed shortly after by the fire alarm going off. I had smoke coming out my ears for a while there, but since it was back at the shop I had them drop a few upgrades in.

And what you guys really want (I know you skipped over the above text), the pictures just after uncrating the thing... If the pics are cut in your view it is because the forums are chopping them. Their bigger and wider then what it shows most likely.A picture from the frontCloseup of the front logoPaint job on top of the DVD-Burner. It is the actual burner and not the case paintedCustom paint on the PSU. As above, the paint is on the PSU and not the case.Full view backside of the caseClose up of details on backside of caseFull view frontside of the caseInterior full viewAnother interior full view, this time at an angle

It looks really nice... It looks like the watercooling it all in the big painted black thing over the CPU? with the rad on the front of the case?

That is one sweet looking PC. I generally don't like acrylic cases, but the paint job is awesome and really makes the case stand out. Let me know how you like that lanparty Jr. I have been tinkering with the idea of getting the core2 version.
That's a beautiful rig you have there, InfinityzeN!

DFI have always been excellent for stability and overclocking, I wouldn't doubt the LanParty Jr. is any different. I'm kind of sick of ASUS at this point, so I may switch in my upcoming rig.
As an additional note, anyone wondering just how small this thing is, it fits in at 7.75" x 16.06" x 16.19" W x D x H.
OMG that thing is sexy! very nice.
*EDIT: Updated and Added*
Just a couple of numbers for you guys... [All run with the normal day2day setup, including antivirus active]3DMark Vantage: 12,431 3DMark 2006: 17,195 Cinebench: * Single Core: 4,609 * Multi Core: 19,282SuperPi 1M: 12.199 [I did get it at 11.994 with the antivirus in stand-by mode]
Will you run Super Pi 1M for me, InfinityzeN...PLEASE?!!!
InfinityzeN That is a nice looking rig and some very nice specs:!!!!!Ist time I,ve had a chance to look at it! Good job.
SuperPi 1M? Yea I'll download and run it when I get home. *Edit: SuperPi results added, 12.199 normal and 11.994 with antivirus off*
Yea, I could get more from it (seen ones in the 8.XXX range), but I don't feel like OC'ing and tweaking it to high hell while turning off/uninstalling everything just to get the number down low.
That's SO SEXY, love the paint job.
What's with the foam in the case?
The foam is because those pictures are the computer just uncrated (seriously, they ship in a hardwood crate packed inside a foam filled box). It was in there to keep things from getting banged around or overstressed.Hell, if you look closely, you'll notice that I had not installed the other three DIMMs or the SSDs yet.
I say again that is wicked and I bet it looks killer in the dark!
Considering that the CC's are blacklights and that lots of parts of the rig are UV reactive, yea it looks pretty damn wild in the dark.
Damn, the case of the computer is almost as much eye-candy as the games you will be playing on that computer.
wow nice case man
Wow... lol i haven't seen this thread yet xD. That case looks awesome. the color is just GREAT! :)
Everyone loves the case. I think if the system was an old Pent III people would still love it because of the case.
Who wouldn't like that case! the design on it is beautiful! When i first looked at it i thought it was a mini case from the first pic :). lol
Not quite a mini Inspector. It is a MicroATX however, with the case being 16x16x7.75 and a wopping 16lbs with everything installed. I thought about the even smaller case they offer, but it just didn't look as good.
When your getting a $250 case ($200 + UV reactive mobo, UV reactive panals, front USB/Audio), having it customized (two custom fan holes, custom interior layout, three custom cathode mounts, etc), and $800 custom paint job (UV reactive paint, interior paint, etc) you expect it to look good.
Smooth Creations actually liked how it came out so much, they started offering my paint style as an option in their drop down menus. Go figure.
InfinityzeN:they started offering my paint style as an option in their drop down menus
I don't blame them,... that's a bitchin' PC case. It all works together quite well.

I usually don't believe in spending so much on the way a PC looks. But I have to admit that yours is worth every cent that you spent on it.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
I really like that they will do a full clean and restore on your case if you have them build you a new system. So you basicly buy one case from them.
