no i dont want to buy a new case. there only a few cases that are 90* rotated. i dont like them and have put too much time into modding mine.

Yea I understand not wanting to just buy the cases that are factory rotated 90 degrees. I dont like the look of them either, really.

My guess though is that it might take some light welding? to reattach the motherboard tray back to the frame of the tower. I honestly wouldnt even know where to start on a project like that.

You might be able to fashion a sort of shroud for the top that you need, to hide the wires sticking out? I know some cases have a type of shroud already built in that can be hollowed out, but if your case doesnt already have one, it would be tough to create one from scratch and get it to fit on the right way.

Hello!
Just showing my first OCD thought out rig. I actually finished the rig back in Feb from then on I've just been modifying it to give it the best airflow possible as you will notice. Also my whole point of this build is to give it a professional look and use of it for daily use but also able to handle intense stuff.

My computer is placed in my closet because I don't really want to hear any the fan noise and also to prevent dust getting around, I also raised it up 4 feet from the ground because I really don't like dust getting into my rig. To further decrease the dust getting into my case I actually used Demciflex on my intakes (side, front, and under) and inside the Demciflex I have dust filter material foams(my ocd-ness). Only draw back is my wiring has to be LONG about 30ft long, but well worth it.


I'm not really into the whole "disco lightings" so instead I just put in 2 ccfl on the top.
Yes I have two black noctuas(AF15) spray painted it. and I'm planning to paint the other 4 (F12s on cpu cooler and P14s on top exhaust). Since I got most the part on sale(all new) I had some left overs and just used those to fill out every single available fan mounts plus more in this case.

^^^ This might look gimmicky but I put it there, experimenting with the airflow and it works because it blows alot of cooler air to the bottom gpu (my primary) now most of the time after playing GPU intense games for like 5 hour straight the GPU temp ( SLI MSI GTX 660) never goes up 68, before the hottest its gotten is 73.

Surprisingly my experiment with my very first build to give it a good airflow and dust defender worked because from the time I finished the build in Feb up until now I have not cleaned my rig yet just checking up on stuff and from the looks of it I don't think I need to clean it for another half a year maybe.

For a haswell 4770k, between 200R and 300R, in design I like more the 200R, but how are the temps of it with a hdd+ssd? I read that they are more high (specially the hdd slots) comparison with 300R, is there much difference? worth it get the 300R (+18$)? or buy the 200R? thanks thumb.gif

I'm pretty sure you don't need to worry about ssd temps because they almost do not generate heat, the current hdd's do not get hot at all maybe not even warm. From experience if your concerned about heat worry about 4 part that mostly runs to higher temps is obviously your GPU, CPU, Motherboard and RAM

Thanks. But overall 300R is more cool and better case than 200R right? I probably go finally with 300R.
