Well here's a few pics of mine, abit shoddy i know, used a camera phone.

Added a 120mm zalman front fan, red neon, custom side panel.
The perspex cost £2 for 2 pieces at my local outlet at there trade counter, online was more expensive and they used off cuts

I have a spare sheet of clear perspex if anybody would like it from around the cv10 coventry area uk, Nuneaton , pickup only FREE .

i'm gonna fiddle abit more on xmas day when i have the new noctua heatsink, have thought of a nice little basic paint jobby but i'm happy for now at least.

Still have a few wires to reroute/hide/sleeve. What do you think?

Steve-

This wire job is SuperBBBBB.
and the Corsair H2O Set up is nice too.
do You have it set for a puller or pusher
Air wise..




Super Smooth build.

You should have no problem with overheating with the 600 and your build. Your probably only pulling 300 watts at the most at Full Throttle.

The case breathes good. I have my Psu turn up because I have the big red light in my OCZ with a 550 dually and my numbers have been in the late 20s and early 30s in the whole box.

First of all I would like to express my extreme apologies for using Paul Hogan as a Aussie. I can see now that America has missed again when it comes to portraying a culture.


Now that is out of the way. This is my favorite computer Mod Of ALL TIME.
I wonder what kind of temps get on this box...



Those Prawns Look Aussum.

Now, for your wires and cables. Clockwise from upper left, that looks like 2 fan wires right? Easiest way is to get Krylon or some other plastic paint and paint them black but the first way I learned to pretty up fan wires is take a pencil, wrap the wires around real tight, buched up toghether side by side, squeeze them real tight then carefully pull out the pencil, you don't get rid of the wires but they go all in a spiral, looks pretty neat.
Next, optical drive cables right? If the top is where you want the drive there's not much you can do my drive cables are also coming out of that hole to the drives, I yanked them back and zipped them tight together but they are black and in a black case, that makes them pretty tidy. Next is through the drive cage into the vid card right? All I can see with that is paint them black too, make sure the contacts are totally filled with packing foam or something non sticky that will protect the contacts.
Next, SATA cables from mobo to HDD's right? Well, you can buy black cables that have 90deg angles on them then they dont jut out like that and blend in better with the case. No, that's not it right?, it's the blue part next to them and the leads that go to the switches on the front of the case? How about some of the same mesh that comes with power supplies to hold the cables together. Do you have to pay a lot for shipping from the U.S.? Frozencpu.com has lots of colors of that stuff. It's pretty light weight but I know some of these companies don't even ship out of country, however, if you go to the hardware store you can usually find black heatshrink tubing. If you get it big enough to surround all 3 of those cables then it should flare out with some coaxing at the mobo connectors, then slide it down the other cables, apply some heat in short bursts and get it to shrink. The same tubing would also work around the cables coming out of the hard drive cage. If you hadn't circled those things in red though, I would have said it's a very tidy case. You've got a mix of other colors on the mobo anyway so unless you want to cap everything, why do these bug you?

Please tell me what you think and if it doesn't work I'll storm something up.
Thanks man, I appreciate all the input! I'll definitely try some of your ideas and tips.

I received some of the watercooling goodies I ordered, just waiting on the rest...then I'll probably start on the case.

I won't have much time over the next 2 weeks though, got my hands full :S

I have it set to draw fresh air in. Like the instructions. I have way more intake than exhaust now. I can dangle a piece of light paper in front of drive bays and it blows out Good for dust not getting in every little crevice I guess.
