One of my co-workers is a hardcore gamer and power user.  Since we’ve met, he’s become more and more interested in the hardware aspect of computing, and recently asked me to help build him a new system.

He previously had a Phenom II X4 940 based system with 4GB of memory and dual GTX 260 graphics cards.  Everything was run at stock speeds as he preferred to spend his time gaming as opposed to tweaking.  Although his system was no slouch, as any hardcore gamer knows; “the faster, the better”!  Plus, getting to know me has obviously had an influence on him (hehehe).  So we set upon building him a new rig from the ground up with the intent to have a very powerful gaming system with excellent performance today, and future expandability for tomorrow.

This is the second part in the mini-ITX gaming series and was published last month when MIAHALLEN upgraded the components to the extreme, and stuffed the SG05 case full of the latest and greatest.  This was a slightly more advanced build, and took a few custom mods to achieve, not for the timid....but oh so satisfying.  Again, he competed a full performance review, and power consumption analysis.

MAX11L is currently ranked as the 10th most popular system at the eVGA MODS RIGS site, place your vote to help keep it there!

We're a bit behind with updates to the site, so I'm posting a few older articles to bring us up to speed.  First off is a series on mini-ITX systems MIAHALLEN has been working on.  He started with a basic mini-ITX build in the miniature Silverstone SG05 case.  Not much modding, only air cooling and a pretty simple build that most users could probablu mimic with minimal trouble.  Miah completed a full performance review of what this mini machine is capable of, and even included a full accessment of power consumption being put on the barely adequate 300Wstock PSU.  He came away very impressed with the performance he was able to extract.  The article is a great read, and if you're in the market for a small gaming rig, you own it to yourself to check out the article.

Macross FrontierAs you all know, Milotic858's Command & Conquer GDI War Factory is currently featured in Maximum PC's March 2009 issue as Mod of The Month.  The issue is not even off the news stands yet, and she has started on her next case modding project inspired by the anime series, Macross Frontier.  The actual details of the case mod is still a mystery to the public, but we do know she has chosen to use Silverstone's newest and latest case called The Raven  for this project.  The Raven is a gorgeous case with sleek lines, which should compliment this project very well.  From reading on the various modding forums on the net, modders and enthusiasts are all eager to see what Milotic858 has planned.  I know that we are definitely in for a great journey with this project.  We will keep everyone updated when new progess is posted on the case mod, so check back often.
