Hey folks!!

I just built this rig for myself. Can I be a member of this club? I am in love with this case. Check out the pics. I am a very open-minded person so don't hesitate to leave a comment&suggestion. Btw, this is my first built.

P.S.:The parts that will get replaced when I have money are marked by a mad-face in the signature.

Jeez! Get some zip ties and organize, and tuck those cable away.
You will get lower temps from better airflow.

It will also look much nicer too.

Great computer though!!!

Yeah, Since it was my first built, I wasn't concerned about the wire management. Just connected everything where it belongs. I was so excited I couldn't sleep until my PSU arrived. Those 2 WD were used to in a Dell Desktop. When I will get 1 TB HDD, those will go away and will put 1 hdd at the top the other at the bottom leading the greater air-flow.(Hopefully).

Also, I plan to buy MSI GTS250 TwinFrozr. When I get it, I'll work on the wire management. Will post pics when I'm done. One question I have: If I put a 120 mm fan on the window, (pushing air out) would that help cooling inside the case?

Thanks for suggestions and compliments.

Are those 2 wd the same model? I would throw those in raid0 if they are. I would suggest having the window fan blow into the case as well. I would also say save a little bit more $ for an hd 5770 unless you fold or play games that perform better on nvidia cards. Nice scout btw. Feel to check out the first page for cable management examples when you get around to it, there are some really stunning examples. Cheers

I highly doubt that putting a 120mm side fan as an exhaust will benefit at all.
If anything it would prevent the cold air intake from reaching the comonents.

Yeah, I have two of the same HDD. 160 GB WD. They belong to the Dell. I wanna sell the Dell so they will eventually have to go. I kinda like PhysX feature by Nvidia. I played Batman:AA. I was blown. Also, I keep reading graphics driver failures for ATI cards. To be honest, I am not a big fan of ATI.

Just a word of advice, its always better to have more air pushing in(positive air flow) the case rather than sucking out(negative air flow). This way you avoid dust being sucked in through all the small openings in the case.
Also think how the air is going to flow through the case. If you exhaust it on the side, it wont reach the VREG and CPU, which kinda defies the point of adding another fan.
