Project: MAXXIMUS is complete

Well it wasn't quick but it was painless. I have successfully constructed Maxximus and amazingly it works! It functions quiet and cool under a full load which were my main issues with its predecessor Bellerophron. The only issue is that system temperature is a high at 42°C when idle but strangely it doesn't rise much under strain.

Tested so far with Super-Pi, Prime95, Benchmarked Half-Life 2: Episode 1 @ 1920x1200 with 8xAA & 8xAF at 61FPS and I've played some Medal Of Honor: Airborne and the World in Conflict Demo without issue.

As you see from the photo it gives off a blue glow from both the front and the back which is a bit daft but not as bad as some other cases available. Unfortunately the only way of disabling the glow is also disabling the fans which would no doubt cause some flames.

I must also share this picture below of Maxximus' screen, an LG 24" HD monitor displaying my first 1080p download, the new IRON MAN trailer (now available in all flavours here) certainly worth a 200Mb download.

Full specifications for Maxximus can be found at VerTecX21.com.

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you have constructed :)

Indeed. I'm aware that it's insignificant when compared with the power of the force.

Impressive, I just hope you've remembered to shield the damn exhaust ports this time. ;)

Has it got an ice despenser? Is it me or does that first picture looks like one of those american fridges???
Hope your not going to add the blue neon lights to the Northside Pimp mobile when you get around to make that purchase!

Having witnessed the full firepower of this new machine I can verify it's magnificence...

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Of course you can, you know true power when you see it. Someday the general public like you will have power like this. But for now just marvel from afar, mesmerised by it's blue glow.

I believe the Lt.Col has become mesmerized - he's hardly said anything since this technological terror was completed!

I'm a little bit miffed he didn't have a competition to name the beast. Lt.Col, next upgrade we get to submit ideas
