Taking the side panel off, we initially don't see anything that we haven't already seen, thanks to the massive side window being installed. What we can do is take a closer look at the components we have in the system.
The motherboard of choice is a Foxconn P45A motherboard; not the most beautiful looking thing we've seen before, but a solid board that has some decent BIOS options and enough SATA ports and expansion slots to keep any gamer happy.
The graphics side of things is provided by a lovely Diamond HD 4870 XOC Black Edition card which sports the standard cooler along with two Dual-Link DVI connectors. It follows the reference design as far as looks go, so there isn't much to say there. Clocks on the other hand are a different story with the core and memory coming in at 800MHz and 1100MHz respectively, which is up from the stock 700MHz / 900MHz configuration. We see the default 512MB of GDDR5 memory present on this model as well.
Inserted below the Zalman CPU cooler is an Intel QX9650 which runs at its default 3GHz speed. 4GB of memory is provided with a 2 x 2GB kit of G.Skill DDR2, which runs at 800MHz 6-6-6-18; quite relaxed.
Running off the motherboard, we have an IDE DVD-ROM drive that sits up the top while a 150GB Western Digital Raptor runs off a SATA port at the bottom of the system. The whole system is powered by an 1100 Watt power supply which offers us plenty of connectivity.
