Ya' it's like modding a car. Luckily I can't really afford to do that right now.

With the Gen 3 board I will be able to slap a Ivy Bridge in there so that's probably in the future. I would love to water cool but that's just a whole new level of sickness!

I am sitting at work anxiously waiting for the UPS guy to bang on the door like he usually does...

Then it's lunch break to set up the 3rd monitor.

I am also getting my daughters Netbook delivered today (birthday present, turning 8). I ordered her the new ASUS 1025C - white, Cedar Trail atom with a extra 2GB stick to replace the 1GB stock. Nerding out on setting that up for her.

I guess the end of next week I will get my cables and I ordered a 200MM NZXT for the other top exhaust. Hoping to get some more air movement in this case.

I was just thinking about maybe painting the inlays red. Kind of like the special edition cases.

Here are a few pictures of the set up as it sits now. No new shots of the inside since I've added the extra 7950. I will take pictures one I am done rewiring and setting it for finished.

White is to damn bright for me smile.gif.

Plus having kids around, white always scare me because they always find a way to get things stained/dirty/colored on, LOL.

I just got my little girls netbook today which is a satin flat white and I am already nervous about her having it.

Going to pull the trim and go with a flat red to match the memory shields and the black/red stripped PSU. I ordered some braided red 24/8/6 pin connectors. Can't wait to get them and actually organize the wires. The inside of the case looks nice, however, the cable management side... LOL... ya not so much.
