check out the woot
Alienware case with 700w PSU
$95 shipped to your door
I wish I could find some pics of the inside of the case.
But I ordered one anyway, because the psu is probably worth the $90 by itself.
According to the Woot forums, the PSU is an Enermax, and someone else found this http://images.google.com/images?svnum=10&um=1&hl=en&q=Alienware+MJ-12+inside+case&btnG=Search+Images
I did an image search last night too, but the problem is that there
are several series of the M-12 pc's, and the cases vary among them.
Some of them are obviously Chenbro server cases, with Alienware front panels.
But either way, I was waiting to see what would come up at woot after that electric blanket they had went off, when I spotted your thread.
Thanks for the reminder.
There is no 700W Enermax. The closest,... a 720W Enermax, but that one has different amperage ratings.
Someone said on that site that the PSU was this one.
AW does use Hipro.
If you bought that case,... you might as well buy a Kill A Watt Load Meter.
In some of the pics of the case from a side view, you can see the Enermax logo on the psu.
What worries me, is that the case is obvioulsy a Chenbro.
And that's a server board in there, which means the case can't possibly be just 18" deep like it said in the listing.
I hope I don't wind up with another moose sized case.
I thought all the Alienware cases were huge?
The dimensions on the woot listing say
Dimensions – (W) 7.5” x (D) 17.5” x (H) 16.3
If that's the case, then great. But it looks a lot bigger than that.
Read the discussion thread on the woot site.
It is the Hipro
The guy who said it's Enermax just found a pic through google.
Another pic from that thread,.. definitely not an Enermax.
It does look like a HiPro, but it's not the one linked.
The amp ratings don't match the woot info.
Now I gotta find the right one.
Well I've got some good news for anyone who bought one of those cases.
That's a Seasonic power supply.
(I hope! - something tells me Alienware used several models)
*edit - oh well, the amps don't match up on that one either.
It is the Seasonic. The amps on this one are an exact match to the specs from the Woot site.
I almost bought it but I figured im not going to build a new comp for quite sometime (4-6 months) and I would rather not have people think my comp is an AW overpriced piece of crap.
Its sold out now
Damn, now I wish I would have bought one!
So in for updates when you get the case
I'm bracing myself for something different, but that's the only one I could find with those amp ratings.
Price is TOO good for a high end PSU.
Probably just a Hipro.
Update the thread when you receive it.
I wonder how much Alienware charges for the Alienware-brand noise dampener. Spire sells it for $5 a box.
just go to guitar center and get it cheap.
If it's a Hipro, then the website gave out the wrong amp ratings for it.
Hipro doesn't make one with those ratings. And neither does Enermax.
But I will definitely post which one I was lucky/unlucky enough to get when it comes in.
has Woot shipped yet?
I almost bought one of those
