ok, a huge update with a lot of pics. i got my camera back today and decided to use it for once. I finally got some more time in on this project.
hear are some pic's of the empty case. it is finally done build wise. i cut the back out for the power supply, mounted 6 tabs to hold the side cover on. i will start off with two pictures of my current case. then into the new one my stuff lands for testing and fitting before paint.









more to come in just a second. still uploading them.

ok everything had been taken out and i started putting it all in the new case.




as you can see things get cluttered very fast. i still have to extend my 4-pin mobo 12v plug and route it behind the tray and over the top. that will be done before i get paint and body work/ clean up done. as for routing the wires i am going to use 3/4 inch stick pads, you actually use them with zip ties to hold wires in place, and i will use them with red ties.


and hear is one of the two led's i will be running. i will have both on the top, but in the corners pointing towards the middle of the case.


still more to post...

power up and temp results time.. i have some pics in the semi dark, but it was not dark enough to get great ones yet.
lights on.




Then with the lights off. sun was still out and this room never gets really dark till the sun is down completely.

ok last of the pics. i had to take them with my stupid phone as my batterys went dead in my camera.. figures.lol..




there it is in the dark.. looks much better in person.. crappy phone... now hear is my screen shot of temps. now remember, i only have one fan right now in the entire case to move air at all. i used folding@home to max out my cpu and both gpu's for a while, then i shut them down and let it sit for a few min.



well, now i have to take everything back out, bring it back to work and start prepping it for paint. i have some more sanding and cleaning of the weld's, cleaning and finishing of the molding. priming it. and then i will be putting 2 coats of bright red fallowed by several coats of the clear with candy additive. i also need to pick up some velcro for the door. it will mount on the tabs to keep it closed.

By far one of the most unique mods in a while. Add a nice cover for the PSU and hard drives made out of the same material and it'll go a looooong way in making it look tidier. But overall, this is wicked cool.

Thank you. i actually thought about doing a long cover, like from front to back, and just big enough to cover the psu and hard drive. but i wasn't to sure about it.. think i might try it.

you could also maybe extend the motherboard tray to the edge of that long cover to create a place to tuck all the wires behind. clean wires = better air flow
