today i started off by finishing up the top box to house the fans when i got an early delivery from everyone's favorite company The Almighty EGG

AsRock Fatality P67 motherboard
Antec Kuhler h20 620
OCZ Solid 3 60gb
and 5 silverstone 120mm fan grills/filters.

The beauty never had a full atx board before only matx and may i say this thing is HUGE.

a picture of the top piece with all the fans installed. the 120mm are intake fans the the 250mm is the exhaust fan

and just a quick pic of the setup for now .

things to get yet are 24 pin extension, 6/8 pin extensions, plexi/lexan, 2 momentary buttons and an on/off button for cathods. all which i will get tomorrow so hopefully i can finish this thing up. I also realized that i will have to move my monitors down about 6 inches to be center with the desk only problem is there is no studs there to mount them. so i figured i would mount them to a 2" x 6" piece of lumber then mount the lumber to the wall. check back tomorrow for another update
Well thats it for now check back tomo

so im almost finished with everything got a few extensions to make a couple brackets for the hdd's/ssd and the radiator but other than that im done looks great so far oh yea and i need to do some cable management but i need to make my extensions before that. anyway i have some pictures of what it looks like completed at this point so have a look.
It is a little dark in the case because one of my cathodes is going out so time to get some new ones.

I will keep updating this log as I get more work done on this but it wont be as frequent as it has been seeing how its almost done.
thanks for looking

Looking good. But I'd suggest for the finished product and a better flow ofthe static air in there is do a wire clean up. Maybe tuck them behind or even lay the flat on the bottom board and use something like a zip tie with a screw hole on te end of it to make it look like a piping would for electircal workers. This way it's not strung across the top of the board.

I still have to do the extensions first in order to do cable management some of the wires are to short to reach places so i have them just thrown in but for the end product hopefully you wont be able to see any wires

just ordered a 24 pin extension for the psu. i am going to add about 6 inches to the pci power cables so i can actually place the psu in a spot where it will stay. I am also in the process of making a false bottom to cover up all the wires. i have also managed to get the radiator mounted to the front right intake fan in a push/pull config. i will update with more pics tomorrow just wanted to keep this updated

another UPDATE

i got the 24 pin extension the other day then i decided to sleeve it so i went and got some royal blue paracord. ive been sleeving everything the past couple days and i still aint finished. also i made a stand for the 2 hdds and a stand for the ssd out of plexi and moved the radiator to one of the intake vents to give it better airflow. i then wanted to hide the wires in the front a little better so i decided to make a cover that slides inbetween the motherboard and the tray spray painted that and then added a nice backlit AsRock logo to it. let me know what you guys think.

just a shot of the custom made 5850 backplate
