Here are a couple of extra shots:



Oh dear, that photo makes the CPU cooler look really dusty...


Since the last update, I've bought a NZXT blue LED strip (2M) and the well awaited Corsair AX650 PSU. Next up on the list is to mod the side panel and add a window.
I will try and come up with some prototypes using Gimp, so that way I can get your opinion on a few models.
It won't be anything too fancy though don't get excited.

Here's my idea for the side panel, let me know if there's anything I should do differently.
The black outline outside the window represents a piece of U-channel rubber.
As for the ugly blue PSU cables, ignore them, I've replaced them with sleek black cables

Here's a little preview of what I'm working on.
I'm just about finished with my PC I think

Should have photos without the painters tape a bit later today.

Just to revive a lifeless tread thumb.gif

Did you end up doing any sleeving? I am thinking of bringing in some MDPC sleeving, if you want to half shipping?

Haha thanks, I should probably take some new pictures and update the thread.. As for sleeving, I haven't sleeved my current PSU as all the cables are all black and I quite like it (thank god for the Corsair AX series! Fully modular, Black cables, 80+ Gold and 7 years warranty..)
Waiting on more Z77 Motherboard to come out, so I can start planning out my next case mod. I was thinking about getting another 690 II second hand and try to mess around with it.
Next project was going to be black and orange, possibly a bit of white too. I really like those orange Xigmatek fans with the white LEDs.
Only problem is that no one is selling a second hand case in NZ..

+1 for the PSU choice, I would imagine the PSU's cables are very like my Seasonic X750 PSU...

You could always just run it mounted on a bit of wood thumb.gif Seen some people doing that around the place.

Have you checked TradeMe? Or getting the original 690? Reasonably similar.

Have an idea for the name of the case, as in your sig its down as an unnamed rig. 007? Reasoning being the black and white makes my girlfriend think of James Bond in a tuxedo tongue.gif
