Bad cable management, bad everything tongue.gif Pretty sure I even had the fans backwards.../facepalm

Also I thought lots of red cathodes were cool tongue.gif

Then, a storm was near our house and lightning struck close and fried my mobo frown.gif I wasn't using a surge protector.. So I upgraded to a Gigabyte Z68x-UD4-B3.
No pics of that :s

After that I got a ssd but didn't take any pictures, it's a crucial m4 128gb.

As of now my specs are:
CPU- i5 2500k
Cpu cooler- Corsair H100
Case- Corsair 600t Special Edition
Mobo- Gigabyte Z68x-Ud4-B3
GPU- MSI GTX 580 Lightning
SSD- Crucial M4 128gb
Hdd- Western Digital 1tb Caviar Black
RAM- G.Skill Ripjaw X 8gb
PSU- Corsair HX750
Sound card- Asus Xonar DG (not installed in the pics.. I don't really like it)
Optical Drive- Same asus 24x dvd-rw

I think that is it. I'm sure I forgot some parts because I kept buying stuff >.<<br />
Here is the final pics!!

I love it so far! Only downside is my gpu runs a little hot, but that will be fixed once my side panel fans arrive

It's really a beautiful case and its really good quality.

I got mine without the mesh, I like the sleek sides.

Yeah either way it looks good, the mesh with fans will provide much better airflow though.

Nice ugprade, I love the case!

How do you like your Asus monitor? I just ordered a VS Series (LED LCD Slim 23.6") from NewEgg because of a promo code. I actually wanted the VH model, which of course got a promo code the day after I ordered my new build/monitor.

I got the monitor for $166 shipped so I can't complain!
