GameRigs Ego- Internals

On the inside we see that that everything is wired up and the wires are tucked away as best they can be. The case doesn't offer a lot of places to tuck wires away, but GameRigs was able to get the job done with the options they were provided.

Being a budget system, the stock Intel cooler was used for the build. I am not really a fan of this practice since the stock Intel cooler has a tendency to spin at high speeds when gaming, causing a lot of acoustic issues. Even with a case like the one used by GameRigs, you can hear the damn fan when it goes into turbo mode. For me, very few things are as annoying as getting into a game and having the CPU or GPU fan kick into a mode that can be heard a room away.

GameRigs went to extremes with the memory for our sample system. Here we see that the memory has been treated with a custom finish, just like the case.

On the bottom we see the mighty EVGA 9800 GTX+ and all of the cables attached to the motherboard.

On the top we found a Lite-On SATA DVD-RW and more cable routing.

The sole hard drive in the budget build was a 250GB Seagate that is based on an older Maxtor template. The drive is very thin. There is enough space in the case to add four more drives; five in total.

Both of the side panels use a medium density foam to help reduce the noise level coming from the internal components.
