Got'er goin with the basics. Haven't built a computer in about 10 years! It was neat. A lot easier this time too. I'm not a gamer, so didn't need the fastest stuff. Just something with some horsepower behind it so it doesn't crash during photo, audio & video editing & rendering and home theatre use.

Wasn't in a rush, put it together as parts went on sale at NCIX. I'll add more stuff later, like video and sound cards as/if I need em...

Neat. Small form factor computers are nice to have, as long as you can get ample cooling. What's with the ricey blue lights?

I had that cpu, could not make the damn thing overclock past about 3.0 gz. the unlocked multiplier is awesome... too bad you cant used them! i switched to an intel 5200 (cheaper) its default clock is 2.4, not as fast as the 2.7 7500, but i have it over clocked to 3.5 no problem right now. thats a good "out of the box" cpu, but really if you want to OC, go with intel.

All the lights came with the case hehe They're all in the fans! There's even another, smaller fan in the power supply with more lights

I have temps probes for the front display, CPU runs cool. I would like to overclock this CPU to 3.0GHZ. I just wanna make sure the RAM's stable first. The motherboard's picky about the RAM that's in it, as I found out. It was hairy at first, but for some reason after a few days it started behaving, and I've had the RAM slightly overclocked for a few days now; so we'll see...

ya the cpu runs pretty cool at first, but you need LOTS of vcore to get it to be stable around 3.0. like almost 1.4v. just get some monitoring software like everest or real temp. i use everest just cause i can get it to display all my temps and speeds on my g15 hehe and make sure you go into your bios and make the proper changes as well. and please dont do any software OCing lol.
