LOL, jerk. I could not find them for the life of me. I had no idea where to go for zipties. I also bought cable clamps on ebay. They use #10 screws so I gotta find those at Sears or HomeDepot.

Went to Home Depot this morning and found some cable ties and holders. They have tons of zip ties. I took out the HDD cage and used the Lian Li HDD holder from my Rocketfish. So the front fan is open. Hopefully a little more airflow is coming across the the board.

I am in love with this case...if i only had the money to get one right now. I can't wait till i graduate (weird to say I know) and work and get paid on a consistent basis.

Case is beautiful

Less typing and more building then.

So I just picked one up yesterday at a local microcenter for 149.99! saved me 30 in shipping. But it was a breeze to work on and cable management is excelent. Everything seems to reach where it should. Although i've had one problem but i'm not sure its the cases fault. I have the power LED plugged into my board but it wont light up on my case. It did this on my last case too so maybe its just the board. I'm pretty sure i plugged it in right though. Anywho I was a little dissapointed at how much air it moves. Its not a whole lot but i was looking for a quiet case and i guess thats what I got. I just stuck a 120mm fan in the bottom to push some air and its the loudest thing in my case.

How do you guys put the case back together after drilling out the rivets? I was thinking of using a rivet gun to re-rivet the case - which is kind of pointless. Do you guys use a tap to thread the metal for easy deconstruction/contruction and use thumb screws? Just wondering.

I do not have the HAF. I'm just curious since I'm actually interested in painting some components of my rocketfish. I'm terribly sorry if this is off topic but consider it a free bump!

Just re-rivet it back together. That's what I'm going to do when I get mine and paint the interior flat black . Just do a quick google search for black pop rivets and you'll find numerous online vendors. You can pick up the tool @ your local Borg hardware store ( Lowes - Home Depot) for pretty cheap.

Congrats. You're right about cable management couldn't be better. I had trouble with the led's in the front. What you have to do is have the positive 1 pin led with writing towards the top of the board. Then you have to flip the negative 1 pin led and put it in that way. You're lights will work.

As for the other guy. Just rivet the case again once you are done. It's easy and having a hundred screws will be a pain to take out.

It's sad to say but I'm passing the torch on to you all. I made a tough decision and decided that I would rather play my PS3 for the next few year than to upgrade my computer every month. I parted my computer the past week and have sold almost all of it on eBay since I don't have 35 reps yet. I took full advantage of the Cashback from Live.com and bought a ton of electronics and have sold all of them for profit. So i'm pretty much on top minus $200 for paypal and Ebay fees.

My friend is waiting on a 1000w psu for his computer and I will be giving him the HAF 932 already to go with wire management. So I hope you guys keep it up and I'll post pics of his rig when we do it.

I bought an Inspiron 1525 from Dell Outlet for $500 and have a 2.4ghz core 2 duo and 4gbs of ram running vista ultimate 64. It's more than enough for surfing the net and doing some word docs.

My friend told me I bought way to much crap way to fast. This is true and it's an issue I know many you also have. Constantly upgrading to have the best possible. I'm going to wait for a card that can fully play Crysis and Far Cry 2 at 60fps and probably wait until 2010 when never nethalem chips come out.

Don't worry I'll be throwing in my usual input and keeping an eye on everything. I may end up building a htpc. Who knows I'm already going through withdrawl. That building itch just won't go away.
