Unboxing the new computer

The computer came in a big box containing several smaller boxes with all the bits and pieces. Well, one large bit and several smaller pieces.

The big box

The Thermaltake Element T case. The dogs were quite intrigued.

First thing I had to do was crack it open and check out the inside. Had to get past the packing foam first.

The inside of the case is quite spartan compared to what's in my current computer. A nice roomy case.

Plenty of drive bays to populate

After poking around in the BIOS to see what there was, I set about installing Fedora 12 onto the machine. With Hyperthreading enabled, it shows up as 8 processors of computing goodness.
8 processors!

Shiny :)
