Nice lookin' setup you got there. I'm glad those covers worked out for you.

But I did pull the trigger before reading your post, so hopefully I will be happy with it and will report temps and sound levels compared to my setup. But this means I will be moving my guts back in to my Sniper and my Scout will be my HTPC/server. This is not a bad thing, I will be able to show it off a little more with it sitting next to my TV.
Well I hope that you will be happy with your new WCL, and if you are not it is not my fault! just kidding
Okay Goodink,
You have got to tell me because I do not understand what every body is doing with the computer in the TV room.
I have a blue-ray player with my LAN cable attached so I can d/l netflex and couple other things.
But what am I missing out on buy not having a sys. in the TV room?
I have a couple laptops and a couple other sys. kicking around that I can use on my TV if you tell me what it is I should be doing? lol
Would my epeen,go way up if I have a HTPC/server!???

Haleskater, it just keeps getting better all the time! I like the modders mesh look!
You and Rocker69 came up with that, very nice!
Those ccfl and moving the 8+24 pin, she cleaned up nicely
Yup retro fitting the H50 and all.
Lot's of work in that case, Congrats!!

Mine IS my TV. I have two tv tuners in it.

And I can see her point. It's nice to have the grandkids over from time to time, but mine live so far away when they are in the area they normally stay at grandma's instead of grandpa's. She has more room.

But it sure doesn't take long to clean around here and the heating/cooling bills never get that high.

Okay, so you watch tv in a window? and do other stuff on the same monitor? You are some how putting cable into your sys.? or a antenna?
So you do not need a cable box? Is that the idea?
Yes it is nice when everybody comes home, It is a third generation house so even my brothers and aunts & uncles all think it is home, lol
Ya for heat you just run a couple OC sys full bore and heat up the place

Just ordered some .236 clear polycarbonate from Grainger this afternoon.
Some screw in rivets..they look wicked...hopefully to replace these blah plastic ones...give it a more industrial look. (will arrive Tuesday)
A new cordless Dremel along with an accessory kit for working with aluminum/steel and a couple bits for working with acrylic. (should be here tomorrow)
and will be picking up a pair of red ccfl's from microcenter.

Also, ordered a couple 18x12x.10 carbon fiber sheets for the false floor/hdd cage cover...will take 2 weeks for delivery.

something's cooking...

EDIT: forgot to add:

Any Stormer try putting in a full acrylic side panel?

Multiple monitors. I have two 19" 4x3 flat panels and the 23" 16x9 HD flat panel to watch tv, movies, etc. on full screen. I can also output to regular TV via an HDMI or S-Video cable when I want to.

Cable without a cable box. I could hook up a cable box or dish box if I felt like it, but I haven't felt the need to do so.

I can easily raise the temp in here by a good 10C if I'm not careful.

Oh Dude!! See, this is why we always say, ask here first, then make your decision. The cordless Dremel is a weak dog. Well, I'm saying that second hand. We had a guy who had one. I think it was Danny, that thing had little to no guts when it came to cutting metal! From what I understand of the Dremel line up, the cordless is designed for little things that you can't get to with a corded tool. It's nothing like having the latest 18V Li-ion Drill/ Driver/ Hammer drill which is a major workhorse. The cordless is to polish the doll house, buff out the rust spot on the lamp post, stuff like that, not major work. Lemme know if I'm wrong & I hope you can exchange it for a good one. You don't have to have a Dremel for this work. I had a Black & Decker Wizard for 15 years & it was fantastic. It should be great for acrylic & even if you want to get into Glass Etching. PM me if you do, I have tips!!

About the full acrylic panel: Nope, don't think so, I've seen a few on the Haf & you need a thick sheet, a good hinge set & a strong clasp but it looks Sweeeet!

Edit: @ PapaSmurf & others wondering. I'm not the one to ask. I was waiting for Enigma to reply about hooking a computer up to the TV but I know his is linked, if not in the same room. With the right TV & the right computer you can do away with Netflix, On Demand, rentals of any kind. You can get Hulu, You Tube, many others that stream entertainment to your computer or HT setup. I've known guys that hooked in thier surround sound just for commercial free music! Think about it, the whole internet open to you with a wireless keyboad & mouse! Edit your photos on your 47" HD LCD, play Dead Space of C.O.P. in full screen full color!

About hooking the cable into your PC, definitely, all you need is a digital tuner card & a few choice programs off the net & you can pick your channel!

About the heat: Heck yeah!! When I had my Haf & Mindy's Scout folding on a total of 16 cores & 3 video cards folding. We never used the furnace! I stopped folding though because the electric bill was too high, gas is much less expensive here.
