Looks great. I applied for that case in the contest as well. It went to a great home and love the mod you did.
Not that I know of, but next folding forum war I think I'm gonna get my Dad to fold too so that'll be 2 i7's a 5970 (with the new ati client fingers crossed) a core 2 duo, and an 8800 or possibly a 9800gx2 if 5prout can nab one of those for around 85 bucks and we'll have some serious ppd!

Awesome.

I also thought it was the poster's Daughter and the whole "me unwrapping the case" was a joke 'til I saw the third pic and the one with your Dad's workshop, then thought "hang on a minute..."

I am very impressed, not only on the tidy build, but your grammatical skills aswell.
You put my cable management to utter shame.

+rep to you, young lady.

I'd love to get my daughter into things like this in a couple of years (she's only 7 atm), not to "become a geek", but I feel it's good for not "just boys" to be tech-savvy, so she doesn't get ripped off with something she doesn't need when she's older.
I'll be teaching her Martial Arts to look after herself, and DIY (I'm in the Building Trade), so more importantly, she won't need a smelly boyfriend!!!

Anyway, I don't even wanna go there, stresses me out thinking about that!! *rages briefly*

Although, doing DIY, teaching Kickboxing and doing other manly stuff for my missus was how we got together, so I'll be a bit of a hypocrite really.

Props to Dad and big Brother for doing a great job in helping you learn for yourself.

In my opinion the ide should just get ditched in general.

You can pick up a sata dual layer dvd burner drive for ~20 bucks these days. I understand you probably done have much of an income at the moment so this may be one of those things you beg dad and offer to do some chores for

Good luck, Im sure with a tad more work you can find somewhere to stash alot of that extra cabling. In one of my previous setups I stashed a bundle in one of the 5.25 bays to move them out of sight. Hope this was helpful!

Thank you! Cable management on the case was kind of difficult because there was virtually no space between the back panel and the motherboard tray. But on my last case my cable management was awful so I really wanted to do a good job on this one. And I agree that girls can be tech-savvy too!

I still have two cases based on your old one and know first hand just how difficult cable management can be on them.

I was 4.6 tall til Iwas 16 yrs old, Im now 35 yrs old and only 5.10 tall, my Dad is still taller. My Dad had tuff rules when i was young, I appreciate now. I still build things by hand, Dad and me build my desk a few yrs ago. Something to be said about doing it yourself.....

It might run in the family. Don't worry, when you get older, it won't effect you.

My Ex-girlfriend is only 5' 1", I wouldn't cross her. She can kick somebodies butt.
