Here we see the Hellcat with the side panel removed. The insides are not as elegant as the LAN Shark we looked at earlier this month; there are cables going all over the place. But for the most part they are tucked out of the way and believe me, cooling the system is not a problem with the four 120mm fans blowing over everything.

Here we see the two Diamond 4870 X2 graphics cards with their Danger Den waterblocks already installed.

The SATA plugs are pretty trick; see their 90 degree angle coming off of the board.

Danger Den also took care of the processor cooling and here we see the new LGA 1366 water cooling block. The massive air bubble went to the reservoir after the system powered up.

Data is kept safe with the two Western Digital 1TB drives running in RAID 1 mode. The Western Digital VelociRaptor proved to be an excellent boot drive.

When the system is turned on everything came to life and we were in Windows in seconds.
