Having put together the following components, the last of which arrived today, I set about putting them all together with mixed results. Case - Akasa Zen Blk £25.84 CPU - AMD 4000AM2 £40.54 Memory - 2Gb (2X1GB) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR £52.33 Mobo - Gigabyte GA-MA69G-S3H £58.76 Heatsink - Scythe Ninja Plus £26.66 HDD - 320Gb HGST SATA2 £45.82 Win XP Home Edition £50.51 Sapphire 2400XT £46.99 Pio BDC-202BK £152.74 Akasa AK-TK-01 Cable Tie kit £3.51 Akasa AKFC-06-BK BLK 3.5in Controller £7.74 FSP Rubber Suspension Kit £3.47 and already had this spare Tagan TG-420 U01 Silent Late addition: OEM Cyberlink PowerDVD 7 SoftWare with Cyberlink Media Centre Remote £8.21 First things first, the Ninja + is a monster and it would be very easy for it to not fit a lot of mobos, it barely just fitted mine. Buyer beware. Knowing what a pain installing it might be if I installed the mobo into the case I set about installing the CPU and Ninja with the mobo outside of the case and it was very easy. Before fitting the fan on the Ninja you really have to install the RAM so I did that next then made sure the fan was facing the right way and fitted it. Took next to no time, 4 jobs done. Next up, fitting the PSU, fan controller, BDC-202, HD2400XT and HDD but before that the rubber suspension kit for the case fans. Unscrewed the very secure rear case fan and installed the first four suspension bits. Quite a bit of hassle and decided to leave off installing the fron case fan ones to see if there's a noticable difference between the new rubber and the normal screws. Taking the front of the Zen was easy enough but installing the fan controller not so, despite it being also being Akasa. A very tight fit would be the best way to describe it. Next up the BDC-202 which installed with no problems. Front of case back on and then screwed in the PSU, HD2400XT and HDD. Longest job the rubber suspension for the case fan. Next I popped in the Gigabyte I/O plate, screwed in the standoffs and then the ladened mobo. No problems. I then undertook to spend the rest of the afternoon farting about locating all the different wires, tying them off etc around the case to try and best keep clear the airflow. Not hard just time consuming. All bolted in I decided to see if the thing would post. It did, HDD recognised and RAM all present and accounted for but I had plugged in the USB keyboard and trackball and the bios obviously wasn't defaulted to recognise them. Power off and plug in an old PS2 keyboard. Bootup and we are off. Into the bios to change a few settings including turning on the USB keyboard/mouse. Great, reboot with WinXp in the BDC-220 and no dice. Not seen in the setup. Turn off. Remove DVDRW from old PC and install, power on, recognised, next WinXP Home Edition. No problems installing WinXP HE but once it was finally done it took an age to actually get into Windows. To cut a long story short I eventually discover that the BDC-202 has a problem with SB600 so I install a SATA controller card I have spare and we're into Windows in record time. Install the driver for the SATA card and then the BDC-202 was visible. As if by magic. Upgraded to PowerDVD Ultra and installed AnyDVD HD and I can detect not only the BDC-202 in AnyDVD but also what BD (Casino Royale) I have in the drive, it just won't play it. Installed my 360 HDDVD addon and can play Jarhead no problem over my monitor but I am yet to test it over HDMI to my C42. The Ninja+ along with the two 12cm case fans are silent. Add that silence to the silence of the HD2400XT and you have a whole lot of silence. I haven't closed up the case yet and haven't tried to assess any temps but if I can maintain the level of noise as it currently stands then I am one very happy bunny. I just need to iron out the issues with the BDC-202 and test the HDMI out and make sure there's sound plus a miriad other little tasks. I'll try and post some pics once I've had a chance to see how they came out.
