@ Clee. Man, you are really going to get me into trouble if you keep showing that stuff from Mnpctech! I go to the first page and my eyes glaze over and get that kid lost in a candy store look. Hmmm, same thing happens in the hardware store. Last time I went to the hardware store for $6- worth of star screwdriver bits I came out with close to $60- worth of tools.

Have you guys seen these: http://www.gogoactive.com/BRINKMANN-...B00252W2YS.htm
This isn't exactly what I have, mine has 5 LEDs and a 3 way switch and it comes with 3 in a pagkage and they were only $9.89 at home depot. With all these trees around us it's dark in here, even in the summer and I was always complaing because I couldn't hole the light where I wanted and do the work at the same time. Now I have a headlamp.

lol

I do the same thing, Bri. Walk into Fry's for maybe 1 fan, or a spindle of blank DVDRW's (for example) and walk out with a receipt for $100 worth of random, impulse purchases that I think "Hey! This would be great for _______.".

It's who we are.

The first rule of proper cable management in my book is shell out the extra coin for a modular PSU. It pays dividends far over and beyond the up front cost. The second rule and again according to me is plan your build as a finished project. Are you gonna SLI/Crossfire? How many hard drives will you end with. What kind of lighting scheme if any. Are you gonna add fans etc.... A good blueprint of how your system is going to be when you're done will allow you to make better short term decisions on what you need to do to cable everything up and take the small steps to get there. Cuz let's face it hardly any of us have the coin to do it all up at once. Take your time think it through and it'll all come together. As Enigma said, good job on your first build.

As for what is a false bottom, take a look at post #9851. It's really just a cover for the PSU to hide the power cables.

A agree with Enigma about the false floor, but I think even without it you could improve on your cable management. Other then that, great work on the build & I agree with your Megahalem facing upward, exhausting through the blow-hole.

I just ordered the following cable management tools for myself. Maybe they will be helpful to you as well (see below).

Sorry bro, but Im afraid I can't afford to buy that modding supplies. I am in Japan now, modding supplies here are limited.

Well you do have regular wire ties.. Probably in many colors.. Just go to a hardware store and buy some.. the art of modding is making something work from something that you didn't Expect.







This is what I mean by a false floor.. It doesn't have to be steel and painted.. You can make it out of card board if you like.

You and Bri are like the Cliff Clavin of this thread except all your info (and God knows where you guys find it all) is relevant and useful.

One of Our Girls from the CES 2010 would like to say hi to all the members of the Storm Scout Club. Personally I would like to thank her in person but they have barred me from getting close to her.. I drooled..



Notice the CoolerMaster TAT, I wonder if I could pass this off as a Christmas card.
