You don't necessarily need to chop up your power supply to extend the cables and nor do you meed to buy an extender. As long as you have a fan power to molex power adaptor spare (they come with pretty much every fan you buy) then all you have to do is chop the molex stuff off, find some wire and join it up to each end. It's a homemade extender. But $5 is cheap and if you can't be bothered doing that then meh. lol.

check the link in my sig and read a few recent posts with youtube videos.

i have a
i7 3.4
gtx 295
4 hard drives over 2 TB's
2nt video card for 3ed monitor
8 120 mm fans
tons of usb devices (ipod 160gig clasic, logitech web cam, g25 wheel, wireless mouse and kb, bluetooth for n95 phone and a head set to use as mic in games, and all kinds of other stuff lol).


its a zalman 850 (1050 watt peek continuous) and if you figure possibly doing a 2nt 295 or maybe a gtx 300 series or what ever else comes out i think it fits this set up pretty good.

i rather spend the extra 40-50 bucks for a nice (insert name of part here) then have to upgrade it in 6 months and spend all the money over again. i also got a deal on the psu it was only like 140 when i bought it lol. the way it is now i won't have to worry about leaving it on 24/7 and having a dead psu because it was maxed out half the time.

most up to date picture as of right now.

Fans, they're the tacticool accessory for PC cases just like accessory rails are for guns! So I added another one, up to eight 120mm fans in this beast now...







Someone post about this so that I can post my latest cable management pictures in their own post. Then I'll let iandroo888 update his original post to include my setup under cable management!

My cable management as of October 23rd 2009:

Here's what you see 99% of the time:


I've hidden away the cables the best I possibly can, unfortunately my sound card and RAID card have a few cables that are practically impossible to hide:




Then there's the backside of the thing, this is where the magic happens:








Hopefully this can give those of you struggling with cable management some ideas. If you've got questions on how/where to route cables you can ask me!

Nice work sir, very well done. Looks the way mine used to when I had my CM690 and SLI.. but now I have a Q9650 and the 1050w psu and water cooling that didn't fit my 690, but I still have that case thats for sure.

great case I'll recommend over the A900 ANYDAY!!

I thought something in our thread was missing. I'm sure they'll be back though.

@ Yagit - I know the pic is a few pages back now, but it's good to see all the hardware is keeping with the overall theme of your beautiful case. I was originally planning to do a very similar paint scheme, with the silver, but you beat me to it. And did a way better job than I would have I bet!

try putting the audio wire between your video card and motherboard. pop the card out and bend the wire so it goes under the sound card and tuck it just under the pci-e slot and pop the video card back in. my rear fan controller wire is done like that.
