Greetings everyone! Been lurking on this forum for a fair bit reading up on computer building and ideas for case modding.
Got myself a trooper a few months ago and I finally have a complete computer built so I thought I'd join the club!
I proudly Present my ever so humble, first ever build.
Blue, blue and moar blue. Also White.
Got the idea for the EL wire in the grooves from the dude who made that green case. You know the one I mean. Quite clever and looks really nice I think. Just holding it in place with sticky tack for now. Any suggestions on something to attach it with?
And in case you didn't notice, got mahself a blue power button logo *****ezzuh
(I couldn't be arsed to change the power/HDD LEDs).
I opted to hide the optical drive behind one of the front dust filter things since I don't use it much. Looks cleaner too.
I also chose the Sentry Mix fan controller cause its made of the same rubberized material as the case and is pretty much the same color (i.e. It looks good)
Got some damn freaking bright cold cathodes lighting up the top grill that are supposed to be a deep blue apparently (not quite
as bright as in the picture but still). Please dont ask where I got the CCFLs or the EL wire, my friend gave them to me so I gots no clue where they came from.
The inside of the case
Running a SABERTOOTH Z77, SLI'd GTX 560 ti's (overclocked to 960mhz), Intel i7 2600k (overclocked to 4.8 ghz), and an H100 for CPU cooling.
Using Corsair Vengeance RAM (1600mhz) at stock speeds.
And of course my incredibly awesome amazing clean cable management behind the other side panel....
Also a picture of my monitor+keyboard setup for some reason. Found an old LCD monitor in the basement so that's whats with the smaller one. Figured I might as well use it.
And that's all folks! Hope ya like it as much as I do. Some feedback would be nice and if anyone has suggestions for additions/improvements feel free to share.
Edit: also just wanted to say that you guys are awesome. This thread gave me so many great ideas for my case mod and its awesome to see all the different things people do with their cases and the number of different ideas everyone has.
