Performance:

The components we loaded into the NZXT Trinity are listed below.

Hardware Components
Processor: Intel Celeron D 320 (2.4GHz)
Motherboard: Abit IC7-MAX3
Memory: 2 x 512MB Mushkin PC4000
Graphics Card: Prolink NVIDIA 5900XT AGP
Hard Drives: Western Digital 40GB 7200RPM
Optical Drives: Memorex 52x24x52 CD-RW
Add-On Devices: SunbeamTech LightBus
Cooling: 2 x 80mm LED fans & 1 x 120mm LED fan
Power Supply: ePower XScale 600W
Software Components
Operating System: FedoraCore4
Linux Kernel: 2.6.11-1.1369


Unfortunately, NZXT only includes one blue 80mm LED fan and then another 80mm fan that includes no LEDs. With this said, we decided to replace the two included fans and use a 120mm green LED fan for exhaust on the rear of the system and then two 80mm Cooler Master red LED fans on the front of the system and the side panel. As for the hardware installation, we experienced no apparent troubles installing all of our components. Even though the Trinity doesn’t contain a removable motherboard tray, we still had ample room for installing the different components including the Abit IC7-MAX3 motherboard. As for the temperature LCD on the front of the unit, it looked and operated accordingly for its duties. On the right hand side of the LCD display is actually the HDD activity indicator. When read/write operations are occurring to the hard disk the right hand side of the screen will actually flash red.
