I envy your 460.. I'm not sure what my next upgrade will be. If you were in my position what would you do? (See sig rig.)
The GTX460 would be a mammoth upgrade. I can honestly say that's your best balance of performance and $$$ for your situation That or a GTX470 if you can find them cheap, but the GTX460 is a monster. Pix when you get that fan installed!

I've been toying with the idea of tossing in one of my cathodes (red or blue is all I have) or picking up a few LED fans I'm running a 140mm Xigmatek fan on the side-panel right now (white led, blue blades)

That would be hard to do as the Gene III has ample socket space... I mean, I COULD have used it, but it was physically pressing against the graphics card... that's a no-no for me.
That's frustrating. Been there.

I was looking forward to see how it did.

Oh well, move on. That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

Added in a 80mm exhaust LED that matches the LED fan provided. Had it laying around from my old setup- worked out well

Pardon the quality.. and crooked photo. Lol.

Hi guys

First time poster


- This is my 2nd / HTPC / Download / Light Gaming RIG, so nothing too fancy.




- Specs :


AMD Phenom II B50 ( X2 550 Successfully Unlocked) / OCZ Vendetta 2

Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H
Sapphire HD5670 with Arctic cooling
2*1GB Kingston ValueRAM 800MHz
Samsung HD154UI
WD1000EARS
Maxtor STM31000528AS
Coolermaster 350W


- I'm thinking about some modding, maybe some cathodes also.

- This is a quick build, I'll revise the cable management next week or so.

- Any opinions ?

Oh haai there

Welcome to the club

That's pretty nice cable management for a "quick build"

What type of modding do you have in mind?

I'll update op in a sec.

That's a nice, clean build there Coolman!

I have to re-route some cables. Had to wait for my black cable ties to come in. Here's a case update (Ignore the white cable tie) My power supply makes routing cables hard, as it's physically longer than most and the cables are long as well.


As for modding, I'm going to cut out the front metal mesh in the HDD bay to improve airflow.
