Micro Machine + case modding details

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just thought I'd post the success of my first self built computer ever.

Parts:
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
  • CPU Heatsink: Scythe Mugen 2
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte ga-z68ma-d2h-b3
  • RAM: 4 x 2GB GSkill 1333
  • Hard Drive: Hitachi 1TB
  • Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 5770
  • DVD Burner: Sony Optiarc
  • Case: Antec NSK 3480
  • PSU: Antec Earthwatts 380
  • Mouse: Logitech G700
  • Keyboard: Logitech K750
  • Monitor: Hannspree 23" 1080p

I absolutely love this case, except for one thing. It doesn't have any cable management holes. So got a step drill bit and drilled some myself.

I took all of these photos after the fact, sorry for no progressive build photos.



Here you can see the two holes I drilled for access to the inner chamber and the grommets protecting the edges.



It's difficult to see, but the upper chamber access hole is between the PSU and the DVD drive.



You can see from this picture how tiny the case is, especially with such a large cooler in it. Note that the only cable I couldn't route behind the tray was the 4pin CPU connector, but it works fine this way.



How everything looks on my desk.





A couple extra pictures

Overall I'm very pleased with my computer.
