Custom Gaming System - Tagan Diablo With Overclocked E8400 and 8800 Ultra

Some customers have a vision into what the most beautiful should look like.  They select the options on our website and we start to build it.  We then realize just how awesome a computer some of these systems really are.  This system was chosen and configured by an actual customer and we are displaying it here for your viewing pleasure.

Well this is quite an interesting build that we have here.  The first thing that you will notice is that the case is very unique.  It is very different from the Antecs and Thermaltake cases that normally pass through the showroom.  This Tagan Diablo case features two very large fans.  The first fan is located in the front and the other one is on the side.  The front fan is around 250 mm and the side dan is 360 mm.  Both of them are controllable from the front of the case with adjustable switches.

 

The other odd thing you will notice is the use of the 8800 Ultra.  Do not get me wrong, it is still one beast of a video card.  Good thing the customer compensated with a very large PSU and a fast processor and large amounts of ram to keep up.  All in all it looks to be a very good system, but I just do not see that many 8800 Ultras get used in a build anymore.

 

Well you can either hear me ramble on or just look at the specs.

Final overclock is at 3.5 GHz at a FSB of 390 x multiplier of 9.  That is about a 17% OC.  With the FSB running at 390, we set the ram directly 1:1, the best way divider you can choose.  This means ram is slightly underclocked at 780 MHz, but this will give the best performance.
 
Couldnt find any data on GPU
