Manufactured by: Shuttle, Silverstone

Like the Silverstone, a certain order had to be followed to put the computer together. The first step was removing the heatsink to mount the CPU. As you can see from the picture, it's quite the little chunk of metal. The smaller fan directs the heat to the fins which is then drawn out by the 92mm exhaust fan...

.. as seen here. This system worked very well together and the noise it created was at a minimum (quieter than the stock intel cooler, that's for sure).

To help with the airflow just a little bit more, Shuttle also added a CPU duct to the other side of the heatsink to help isolate the CPU from the rest of the components in the system.

With the CPU installed, we needed to put the RAM in. This system has two slots for DDR2 ram which can accomodate up to 2gb max.

Time for the other devices...
