Thanks Rockr! But I will admit, I did not do the sleeving. While I was at Fry's looking for extender, I found NZXT brand that sells pre-sleeved cable extenders. Of course, I chose sleeved over a non-sleeved. Thanks again for the compliment and Rep bro! You made my night. I just wanted to be honest, and not mislead anyone that I learned how to sleeve (I will one day though!).

Thanks Bro!

Edit: I'd just like to say that the encouraging words from this club mean a lot to me. Since I've joined OCN and especially CMSSC, I have learned a great deal about PC hardware and management (not to mention overall looks & design). I have friends who originally taught me the basics, but I think I've fallen deeper into the "rabbit hole" then them, so the level of appreciation isn't understood for the work. So, thanks, ALL, for always encouraging the hard, and very fun weekends I've spent modifying and upgrading my rig!!!!

Hey, didn't realize it, I see the overall look instead of the details I guess. I have both of those drives too but as yours does Clee, mine has lightscribe.

@ Path, I haven't had time to watch your video yet.

@ DefecTalsiman, if it helps make any difference I have the Sentinel mouse, someone recomended the Lachesis to me but it's just huge and mainly made to be ambedextrous. The sentinal has onboard storage so you can program any profile into it and it changes with just a click of the front center button, it came in real handy while playing Crysis and Crysis Warhead to switch between 1100 dpi and 2700 dpi with a click. I've taken out all but one weight and I have a very slick steel series mousepad, so it's response is as fast as you can move. The LED's inside can not only show you 5 different colors but you can combine them to make a different color, like red and blue to make purple. I've never used the part where you can load a new icon into it but I can see that would be handy if you're in a club & I really like the thumb button to switch back and forth through web pages, but you can program it to switch weapons in a game.
I think it will be mine soon, with a steel pad

So, a quick update in images. Over the weekend I, finally, picked up a black DVD-RW (LG) to replace the hideous white (more like off-white) one I had previously.

Also, while I was re-arranging some fans, I hooked up the 2nd blue LED cathode on the bottom of the case (previously, only had the top one installed).



As I said in my last reply to Ambiguous, I ordered a 120mm fan bay to sit under the optical drives' open bays. I was notified via email today my Noctua 140mm fan has been shipped out. I'll be sure to update with new images once those are both installed.

Thanks for reading guys!
Very nice rig man. You know I love the blue. Do you think it's a Nevada thing since our flag is blue? Or is it just we like blue better than red?

When I was in the army there were a lot of fights in the barricks. Mostly drunken brawls. I found a study done in a UK regiment that said they tried some barricks with reds, blacks, browns, then others with lighter colors like blue satin and light green. The incident of violence was up to 30% more in the old colored barricks. So I said we have a lot of white paint, I'll pay for the tint to paint my platoons building in a light blue and white with a dark blue enamel stripe near the floor and between the light and the white. Fights and drunkeness stayed the same in the other barricks but in my building, fights went down about 47% and when guys got drunk they were looked after instead of left to thier own self distruction.

I don't object to red and black computers and I like black desks a whole lot more than the old wood veneer desks but I just think / know the blue and greens are more soothing. Ideally we would all have a switch, when we're doing regular things our computer lighting would be blue or green or something like that and then when you turn it on to play games flip the switch to turn it all red again.

My rig with the new PSU, blue fans, the noctua for exhaust and the CCFL's moved over, one on top, one on bottom. They used to have both CCFL's on the bottom, jammed between the PSU and the side panel, so stupid. I'll never pay someone to do my system again.

It's interesting that you say that about the "soothing". Although it's known that blues/greens are considered "cool" colors, whereas red/yellow have been titled as "hot" colors.

Personally, when my scout was stock red, it was different, and I can see why some people would prefer red. I kept the red for a few weeks and eventually came to a point where I couldn't live with it, and had to go blue.

I felt the red was more of an intense, aggressive color that gave off somewhat of a powerful vibe. Blue, like you said, is more soothing, and I feel it gives off a cool, modest feeling. Also, blue is my favorite color & not to mention with the new water cooler, it gives me an underwater feel too.

I guess with me it's a wavelength thing. Blue light really weirds out my eyes. whereas red does not, but then again exposure to lasers (as in a light show) make me nauseous and feel weak so maybe I'm just weird. But the biggest thing was before we started seeing the red themed case accessories EVERYTHING was blue. So I was ready for red. I guess red was a fad cuz even EVGA who had the best looking motherboard on the planet, the classified, is now going black and gray. Guess you can't account for taste.

True. I have seen a lot of blue rigs, even before I knew how to build a PC. Maybe I was always so intrigued by custom/modified systems (before I knew how to build one myself), blue could possibly be a part of my subconscious lol. Really.. It could be.

I also understand if you see 1 style (in this case, blue LED) all the time, something new is very refreshing. I forgot who it was, recently, in this club that has a green LED build. I thought that was fresh!

Thanks for the link

Who needs a 6-core? Hmm.. honestly, nearly none of us probably. Who wants a 6-core? Probably everyone.

PS: I'm very glad I haven't yet upgraded my CPU. Still running Athlon 64 X2, and I will gladly wait for the X6.
