IntroductionWhen my system first started out it's life; it was a low-end model from CTX. It was a mid-tower unit that housed a blazingly fast Pentium II 233MHz processor and a whopping 32MB of RAM. It was a decent computer for it's day, but that was before I started realizing how much fun you can have by playing with these machines.When I realized that more power could be gained by overclocking, I was right there. With overclocking, however, came a lot of extra heat. I started installing some fans to the old case, but that just didn't cut it. Especially when I finally made the plunge and started using the AMD Thunderbird processors. With the heat that these chips produce, I was unable to keep the mid-tower case cool enough.After doing a bit of research, I decided on an Antec SX1030 case. I chose the case for a number of reasons...1 - it's a tower case but not so tall that it can't be placed under a desk.2 - It offers as standard equipment the PP303X 300w Power Supply Unit. This unit is consistently being rated in AMD's certified list of PSU's.3 - It offers some very good cooling options without having to perform case mods.SpecificationsCase TypeSOHO File ServerCase Dimensions20.6"(H) x8.1"(W) x18.6"(D) Drive Bays10Front Accessible4x 5.25" ; 2x 3.5"Internal4x 3.5"Expansion Slots7Cooling System4x 80mm Fans1 Front (Optional)2 Rear (Standard)1 HDD Bay (Optional)Mainboard SizeUp to 12" (W) x 13" (L) - 305mm x 330mmPower Supply UnitPP303X 300w unitMaterial1.0mm SECCNet Weight30.7 Pounds MotherboardsFits any standard ATX and XeonSpecial FeaturesSwing out side panel with handleQuick release drive baysSnap in fan mountsLarge front panel vent
