Nice window mod! +Rep for that, showing people like me what can be done!

Out of curiosity is that the core contact HSF in there? And the idea or mounting that little box at the back has inspired me, i think my zalman fan mate may feel unloved until it gets a proper mounting! A few pics of my bog standard case below (needs some work, cabling and a new HSF to start with lol).

I'm tempted to move the PSU down to the bottom, Mobo up to and get a couple of new fans, although thats way in the future . Also might be really quite hard and make the back look horrible.

The guts of the machine....

I installed my HDD without taking this side off, i think i deserve a medal (...or to be shot for being so stupid lol). No room for cables here .

A pretty plain back.

Standard Elite 333 case (beds comfy though). Note ports are on the right side of the case, its less noticeable than on the other elite series cases, but lower which means their harder to access.

Bought a CM Elite 330 yesterday to mount my roomie's 4200+ in, instead of a cheap case with fried front USB ports; cracked open the cardboard and unpacked it. Quite straightforward after that. The only thing I didn't like was how flimsy the pop-out panels were for the optical and floppy drives. I actually bent the metal.

The tool-less installation philosophy is really nice. I was able to secure the HDs, floppy, and opticals without needing a single screw at all. The airflow doesn't seem to be the greatest but it's really hot out (even at 10:45 PM) and the old S939s ran kinda warm, if memory serves.

I have an elite 335 with nothing in it but a psu.

I'm gonna put a window in (which I'm really worried about considering the flimsiness of the side panels) once I get the rest of my parts. Time to start getting money :v

I have pictures now

This case is actually alright for cable management if you know what you're doing. I didn't, but it still turned out alright :v

I just bought one of these recently. Awesome budget case. I got the one that came with the PSU, since my build was so simple. But since then I have upgraded a little. Still basic though. Once I get my new heatsink, I'll get photo's of the inside.

Hondajt. Yup, thats me.
