need? NEED? who said anything about NEEDING more RAM. LOL. it does help with multitasking though. I can run run SWTOR in Parallels on my second screen, and watch Netflix in HD on my primary screen, and still have a couple gigs left that isn't used yet (and that's with all my normal stuff running in the background too). smile.gif

lol you're MAD biggrin.gif i only use the one monitor, and i tend to close un-needed stuffs when i'm playing a game, even though i generally don't need to, more force of habit than anything else lol, maybe near the middle of next year i'll trade my 4gb kit for an 8gb kit of corsair vengance or something thumb.gif

yeah a friend of mine still has one of those, bottlenecks the crap out of his HD5850 lol, don't let keeping up with everyone make you spend lots of cash, if its enough for you then don't worry so much thumb.gif

see the only thing that kinda bugs me is that the phenom II cpus are only specced at 1333 on the memory controller(anything over 1333 would be considered overclocked), couple that with running 4 sticks of it in a motherboard that isn't exactly up to par compared with higher end boards and i could be looking at stability issues, that's the reason i bought a 2x2gb kit to start with, if i was to go with 8gb i'd be wanting something that's 2x4gb, i know you'll understand dude, i just don't like to seem like i'm shooting you down for pointing something out that could be of use to me, so ofcourse, the offer is greatly appreciated smile.gif

Greetings CMSSC. (and merry Xmas!)

I've been a SS owner for a year now, and I've been lurking this thread for almost as long. I check in every now and then to see what others are accomplishing with their cases and thinking of ways to make mine better or more unique. (the cable management guide was a huge help) I'm glad to see such an active community and I thank you for your (indirect) support!

Outside
700
Inside
448

As for its future, gotta up the ram from a 3x2GB to a 3x4GB kit. Might have to butcher the hard drive cage in the interest of a better/bigger graphics card. The 6870 is okay for now, but would love to get a 6990, 590, or next gen GPU (which is more likely at the rate I'm saving).

Has anyone tried shortening their hard drive cage? or know of a place one could by a smaller cage and mount that instead?

That is EXACTLY how my case looked six months ago! PSU, H50, AMD GPU, two hard drives, everything! lol. Always glad to see a lurker post for the first time so welcome smile.gif. You can get a 600T hard drive cage, its what I got for my upcoming mod, I think it will work just swell. Got room for 3 hard drives, and its only 4.5 inches tall. Otherwise, you can cut down the current hard drive cage, like the general himself, Rockr69. Again, welcome, lookin forward to seein you around smile.gif
