ESA Test System

The complete test system we received to review the idea of ESA would make most reader envious.  

Built inside of a Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 chassis, modified to support ESA fan and temperature monitoring, the main components included a 680i motherboard, Tagan 1100 watt power supply, NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra graphics card, a Core 2 Duo E6850 processor chilled by a CoolIT all-in-one water cooler, Corsair SLI-ready DDR2 Dominator memory modules and a pair of Raptor hard drives.
