This is just an excuse for a new PC Case

The introduction of Intel’s Core i7 processors prompted new line of motherboards and demand for DDR3 memory as well as some overclocking challenges and hardcore enthusiasts and gamers.

Asus sent in a couple of their stuff so it was a reason for me to built yet another rig.

The one above is a 10-kilogram Storm Sniper case from Cooler Master. It has a knob at front up front that controls the internal LED lights as well as the ventilation fans (see more details here).

Attach an Asus OC Station (Republic of Gamers Over-Clocking Controller) to the case and you get a cool-looking rig.

Problem though is that prices of Core i7 processors are still too steep. The Core i7 940 2.93GHz alone retails for about Php30,000.

    Hm…I’m pretty sure these components would also work for non-I7 procs. Why not buy a Phenom II processor if the i7 is too hefty for your budget?

    BTW, how much is the case and OC station combined?
