I plan too.. I am thinking of transferring my Sig rig to this case. It is BiNormous and is begging for me to mod her.

Darn it .... My son took his camera to an event tonight so I cant take any shots of the new case yet but it is coming..


BTW. Speaking of modding I love this Picture of Ml's Trip 120 water cooler.

Oh, never seen it until now...looks like a tuniq tower rip off. Since the fan's on the middle you should be fine with RAM clearance.

All done but I can’t say that it helped all that much, maybe a couple of degrees and that’s with the fans cranked up all the way, this asus board ran a little cooler on air then it does on water. My gigabyte board runs cooler than my asus board does so maybe I’ll swap boards latter on.
So now I have 3 intake fans and 1 exhaust fan, but it looks cool!

I've had one HDD fail on my from click of death but that was when I had a terrible raidmax case with bad airflow...I never see HDD temps above 37c in this case and am sure my HDDs won't fail from overheating. It's not like I feel that HDD temps are petty to the point where I'd take out my fans. I'd just rather not sacrifice keeping other components cooler to keep my HDD's cooler.
Well I'm not looking to put them in a deep freeze or anything. I just want to make sure I have decent air flow over them. This new 2TB drive I just bought is a Hitachi Deskstar. Never owned one, so we'll see if it's as good as my WD's. Hope so cause I'm putting about 400 DVD's on this single drive.

After using this thread to assist with my purchase decision on a new case and components to use, below are the results. I've kept it pretty much stock, focusing instead on trying to ensure each piece not only was an ideal mix of price versus performance, but also contributed the overall look. A few of my older components were used where possible to save a few bucks since the budget was an important consideration.

From the front:

The side without the cover on:

The top fan was removed to allow appropriate clearance for the V8 cooler. No other fans were added in it's place as airflow remains excellent. Idle temps are about 30-32C, and under full load readings remain below 50C even with the side panel on and the CPU fan at it's lowest setting of only 800RMP.

Cable management was a bit of a challenge as this particular CPU power cable is not long enough to run behind the motherboard. But personally I don't mind seeing the cables as they are an inherent part of the computer.

The 'purple' lights are actually ultra-violet and are much darker than the camera makes them appear. They are not fixed into place as I may switch them to red in the future. Regardless, both the lights and wiring becomes completely hidden with the case side in place:


Hope you like! Thanks for all of the information and assistance.

Hey guys. I finally finished some of the mods I had been promising. I installed two green 12" cold cathodes, did the terminal block mod, and some cable mangement. Overall, sodering and heat shrinking took longer than I thought it would and I spent more money than if I had just bought molex splitters, but it was a great learning experience. After all, building computer is all about learning, so I recommend the terminal block mod to get a cleaner look. Well anyway, here are some pictures. Tell me what you think. I don't have pictures of the wiring on the back panel yet, but I'll post them as soon as I can. All that is left now is to hide the 24 and 8-pin power cables, but the thought of having to remove the motherboard is daunting. Enjoy.

You know I'm not sure. But I picked it up at Frys today for $149. Couldn't walk away from that price.
