_______________________________
Spent -------------- $780.97
Estimated Retail ---- $999

most my stuff was not in a box so.. box shot looked pitiful


I must say after disassembling the case... the hardiest part was getting the Power supply into the dam thing.. it took my like an hour to get it in there


went smooth after that... put the motherboard in and noticed how empty it was


wiring it all up (at school so this is the only shot i had uploaded >_<)


then kinda getting late so i went to sleep after this


now I'm just waiting for school to be over. Right now i'm looking for 90mm UV Green fans (w/ a black CFL)

When i got the case the plexi was cracked.. anyone know where i can find a cheap plexi side for it? and the 120mm fan holders? (plastic clear things)


More to come when i get home and stuff.

*waves* to his old case.

Yeah, she was really dusty, I was going to give her a thorough cleaning, however, the day I was to send it we had that big (well, in comparison to normal) snowstorm. I didnt wanna risk it not being sent out that day. Nothing some water and a can of compressed air wont take care of! Btw, nice OCN appliqué.
