9.5/10 Kami

Those bottom & top Sata power's bug me. Throw it all off.

finally, i can post this, i hate that audio cable that cuts across, but its about an inch too short to run behind the motherboard

heres a before, in progress and after shot.

for whatever reason, when i first hooked everything back up, nothing worked, the PSU would just make a weird beep and shut off:| i reconnected everything and now it works

do you think its safe putting that cable in between the mobo and the gfx card? First time build.

Wow seeing your rig is quite freaky, as I also have the same case/motherboard/single slot G92 card. As far as improvements go, I'd suggest running your front panel inputs under your motherboard and then directly into the pins. Also, you can flip your hard drives for a cleaner look, but you will probably have to mount them slightly closer to the power supply as you'll need extra clearance from the front intake fans.

I'd recommend cutting out the mesh grills out of the front intake as well, if you haven't already done so. After I cut out the restrictive grill I noticed a rather large reduction in overall sound coming from my case. Last but not least, you can run your CPU power cable in the gap between your video card and the motherboard (where the Realtek chip is located), and then between the CPU cooler and rear circu-pipe heatsink. It'll clear up the right side a little more and improve airflow a bit.

If you'd like, you can check out my terrible quality pictures of my Antec 300 mod :
http://www.overclock.net/case-mods-g...ons-first.html

This will give you an idea of what I mean with flipping the hard drives, I apologize for the bad quality photos. If you have access to a dremel you can make various holes for the cpu/24 pin/PCI-E connectors, etc. Keep in mind that I am definitely NOT submitting the pictures in the above link for rating, as I haven't done the Plasti-dip nor have I found a decent camera to take pictures. I'll post in this thread when I've done that and after I've completed my modifications so I can house a 5870X2!

Overall I'd say 6.5/10, but it's difficult to hide cables without making custom holes.

As I recommended to raise, cutting out the meshes for intake helps a good amount if you haven't done it already. I'd also suggest flipping the hard drives if you don't mind them being a bit closer to the power supply. You could also run those black front panel cables behind the motherboard for a cleaner look.

I like the paint job, I rate it 8/10!

These Armor+ MX's have bugger all cable management ability.

While recieving new parts:


Dremel'd out a few cable holes, modified a bit and sprayed black:

Not much I can do with the power cables. That hole they go through isn't stock.

Nice job ash. 9.5/10
