thanks a lot guys! i was definitely considering the Seasonic S12 430W PSU, but wasn't sure if an antec psu would be more appropriate for the oddly constructed antec case. I was debating on using either the Scythe Ninja Plus Rev.B 6Heat Pipes, Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro 92mm, or the AeroCool Domina...

Antec Performance One P180 parts advice

What cpu cooler/fan do you recommend for an Intel C2D, considering that there are two 120mm case fans located less than an inch away from the processor on the Antec Performance One P180? I'd like to keep this as silent as possible without risking overheating. Also, should I go with an Antec PSU for ...

the worst thing i think is that every machine that you build and sell; you become that clients personal service tech as they will most likely be calling you everytime they screw up their machine with some viruses or cracks or whatever. A definate downside. I was considering starting off selling the...

I haven't read this whole thread but its funny, I was just thinking the same thing about the noise of a keyboard and mouse when paired with my DAW (PC Digital Audio Workstation). For musicians without the luxury of a studio or insulated vocal booth, recording mic'd instruments in the same room while...

Excellent points, I'm glad we're on the same page 8) Building with a level of options and expandability is very crucial, yet I still have to accommodate buyers who might not have all the audio equipment necessary. Which is why I'm scrapping the Echo Layla 3G and going with the cheaper, more universa...

I found I could use trim strips of Oak and make even a plastic bezel classy haha I considered the M-Audio Delta 1010LT, which would be cheaper and more appealing to experienced buyers whom already have an assortment of mic preamps and audio interfaces, but that style of "a hundred i/o coming out th...

The little I know about XP 64-bit is flaky driver support/compatibility; TBH I have no compelling reason to upgrade from XP SP2 32-bit. Same here. Even if Vista wasn't currently in that horribly fetal stage, I don't have the money to build machines capable of supporting quality 64-bit recording. Th...

that mobo does totally kick ass. though, this poses an interesting conundrum. how much performance value do you sacrifice for marketability? using an amd setup would probably be the most ideal for digital audio recording, but I believe it would be less appealing to the general public/novice musician...

The 500W Seasonic S12 seems to be getting the best reviews, though its a little more expensive than the Zalman ZM460B-APS ATX12V 460W PSU. I initially went with the Zalman PSU because it was being used in Intel's DAW and a few Rain Elements (I think), but the Seasonic S12 does look more appealing. T...
