A good trick to do if your 8/4 pin wont make the run though the back, hide it under your gpu.

Just a quick idea hope it helps.

Add me to the list, I have this case. I also put my DVD drive in one of the bottom slots and put one of the fans at the top to create a slipstream of air through the top of the case.

Such is life.

Oh well, next time you order from newegg remember to throw one in, they're only like $5 max.

That is a nifty trick that I have done myself, but his is interesting too...

EDIT: Hey, da tick, is that board out of an HP computer? Because I just moved an HP comp into new case for my friend and I swear it's the same motherboard.

Here's a pic of his.

Welcome to Overclock.net, and to the Tempest community!

The list has been updated.

I know exactly what you mean by the slipstream of air going over the motherboard, because I did the exact same thing. Happy overclocking.

it is from an HP and thats why i havent overclocked. if your friend needs more ram i have 2x1gb laying around that i would sell to him. i just bought a gigabyte p45 so there will be some new pics up soon. i also took my case apart and im in the process of getting it ready for painting. my friend gave me 2 full cans of black gloss paint so im going to use it. i repainted the green mesh and added a gloss clear coat. i like how i ran my 8 pin considering i dont have an extension. if i kept this board i would use my 4 pin but the new board im getting has an 8pin.

*********i saw the 900 and 1200 hdd mod that flips the drives around. can this be done to the tempest? i think it would be sick

I'm pretty excited for the NZXT case. This is my first build from the ground up for myself. I have built with scratch parts before, so I am looking forward to having a real computer. I was torn between the NZXT and the Antec 900. Both are fantastic cases. However, the NVZXT was 10 bucks cheaper, and had all the fans I needed already included. With the Antec, I would have had to purchase another $15 fan. Plus, I'm not a huge fan of the window design on the Antec. I will post pictures once I set it up and cable manage it. It will be a few days though. Im waiting for the parts to ship.

My friend has 6Gb of RAM... so I think he's good. I really hated that freakin' prison of a case that HP uses, or maybe I'm just used to the luxury of the large Tempest.

EDIT: You probably already know this... but here is the crap that HP made me deal with lol.


New paint is always nice, I can't wait to see how it turns out.

About the HDD cage mod... I don't think we can do it. Maybe if you had 90º SATA Power & Data cables it could work... I might try it next time I work on my computer.

Ahhh. A first time builder I see. Well, I'll get a head start and add you to the list as well.

Good luck on the build.
