Speaking of Star Wars....that first mesh would have a very Imperial look to it if you attached some white plexi to it and back-lit it.

If you used red it would still work.

Hmmm....Death Star theme.cool.gif Nah....I'm sure it's been done already.

Is this a good product? Itll work on the LED switch, right? Would it be cheaper to get something similar at an auto parts store? If I do get this ebay item, should I make some casing/backing to protect any connectors from touching the case?

Time to make my case inside more blue! I kinda dont like how the side window is tinted.

New configuration for my cooling, I removed the H-70 and went back to the Thermaltake Frio, I did a quick load test and with the same ambient temp as before the Frio was 1 degree lower and 2 degrees lower at idle, of course the other change was moving the top front fan all the way to the top of the case and using a 4.5 inch acrylic tube, it actually boosted the rpm of the aero cool shark fin fan by 100 rpm plus the air is directed right into the intake fan (Xigmatek clf 120mm 1500 rpm) of the Frio.
No pictures just yet until I get the mesh I ordered, I have something special planed for that along with hiding wires.

IINM, you either need a motherboard that allows it to be mounted high enough to overhang into the 5.25" bays or cut out part of the 3.5" bays.

I asked this a few days ago, and didn't get any first-hand responses, so I decided to just jump in and hope it works. It arrived today...and the one I got is 275mm long (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125356). My motherboard has top-slot PCIE, but it ends up lining up with the 2nd&3rd slots on the back, rather than the 1st and 2nd on the back. So...the card doesn't fit, I get a small overlap (a little more than the width of the lip on the 5.25" bays) on both the 5.25" and 3.5" bays (it hits right where they meet, if i use the top slot).
So, I'm now debating between a few possible solutions
1) Remove the hdd mounts and put them in the 5.25' bays (really don't want to do this, as I have 3 HDDs in it already, and I'm adding another soon...I really like the convenience of the bottom bays)
2) Cut out a small section on the left side of the top HDD bay and the bottom 5.25" bay...kinda worried this may impact their stability though, but it wouldn't be deep enough to reach where the 5.25 and 3.5" connect, so...maybe not? Leaning towards this one right now
3) Something I haven't come up with, and hope someone can suggest that might work better. cool.gif

Or should I wait until I have a better monitor.

Not a stupid question. I'm thinking of buying this....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138174

....for my old rig. So I could throw the 4670 into it. Hey, I'm using the old rig as a hands on learning project.rolleyes.gif I need a hobby.

both are great ideas... I love my couple of 5770 in crossfire.. I get to run everything on High and extreme.
