First Post: Opinions on my new system?

Post by farmersckn » Fri Jul 01, 2005 1:45 pm

It has yet to be built as I haven't recieved the case yet but here is what I am building up in the next few days:

Antec P180
Nexus AOP-6400 CPU Cooler
Nexus 400w 16db Quiet Power Supply
Zalman ZM80D-HP Video Card Heatsink
Zalman Northbridge Heatsink (Blue)

AMD Athlon64 3500 Venice
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe
2 x 512mb Corsair XMS DDR400 2 3 3 6 Unbuffered
160gb Samsung Spinpoint SATA II HDD
ATI Radeon X800XL 256MB
Create SB Audigy ZS Gamer

Any thoughts on the Nexus AOP-6400? I haven't really seen any write-up on it at all. Same question for the power supply. Does anyone see any potential issues I might have with this setup?

I'm not familiar with the Nexus CPU cooler.

Unfortunately the wrong CPU heatsink was shipped. I got the 3200 instead of the AOP-6400 and have yet to hear back from Hopefully I'll be able to get this thing off the ground here pretty soon. The case should be here any hour now.
