Here is where it all started, I really wanted this case cos of the size and ability to store fullsized board.

When this build 1st started out it consisted of,

Intel D58SO Motherboard

8GB Corsair Dominator Ram @ 1600mhz

Intel Core i7 920

2x Ati HD3870's

1X Seagate 1tb Harddrive 7200rpm

Coolermaster 850W Modular powersupply.

Cooling was very basic apart from the 3 38x 38 focussed flow fans by the grpahics cards.



No modding was done but i wanted to be adventurous and do some cutting

My cooling situation soon changed when i added Sunon 120 x 38mm fans
which run @ 3000rpm but were able to be controlled by the motherboard
I added the 2x120mm blowholes in the roof and fitted the sunon fans there aswel, after doing some research and finding out that the top of these cases get REALLY HOT. I wanted a window so i could show the intestines of the rig.





I then got bored of that setup and wanted to completely upgrade, so i purchased the following,

Intel DX58SO2

12GB Corsair Dominator Triple Channel ram @1600mhz

Intel Core i7 950 @4ghz

3x Seagate 1TB harddrives, 2@6gb/s

AND LOOKED A LITTLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS...










The Cooling situation had changed aswel, being as Delta's are hard to come by in the uk i wanted to go for these cos NO1 uses these over here. But the ear bleeding noise was to much, so done some research and found out that a Lamptron FC2 controller handles 45w per channel enough to tame the deadly Deltas. I then changed from basic CRAPPY intel stock cooler which made my cpu run @ 70c :O to a coolermaster Hyper 212 with guess what a delta attached. It had soundproofing on the base of the case and thought was that really working, ERM NAH. so i ditched it but along the process i killed the floor of the case and cried a little, so i though i might aswel paint it. So i went for the traditional BLACK, but am now wondering should i of gone for white instead.

I also added 2x XFX ATI HD6870'S cos i love crysis and editing it.

It hard cold cathodes which took way to much space up with the adaptor n all, i switch to White Strip LED's which are wayyyyyyyy easier to hide, Here what she looks like now, but still a work in progress and very much need to get better pics with the side pannel off. I ditched the 3x 38 x 38mm fans down the side too figured they were doing much.

Before Painting...





and now after painting...
