    Hard drive switcher and x2 4400

    Finally got my hard drive switcher and AMD X2 4400 chip installed.The 2 additional HD's I installed are just 20GB Seagates both ide.The #1 drive has XP Pro and the #3 drive has PC Linux.The #2 drive will have XP Pro 64 where neither my printer or scanner will work,but I'll fart around with it till I decide what to do about it.The X2 chip does make a difference in performance from the A64 3000 chip it replaced.

    Hey bhxtyrant,yeah your right it's a lian li p60 case.I looked at antec and almost bought one of their aluminum models,but the lian li has 4 stock case fans.2 of the fans sit side by side at the front of the case and cool the hard drives.Which Antec did you buy?
