Well I might as well start a build log. Like most people I am constantly updating my system but I have finally reached a point where I'm happy with the hardware and now it's time to make my case my own.

UPDATES:
Update 1: Templates cut, placement, and new gpu cooler.
Update 2: Some layout work.
Update 3: I broke out the dremal!
Update 4: 3/5 fans installed
Update 5: 7 140mm fans in a mid tower case?!
Update 6.1: Micro Update/teaser
/Update 6.2 Sleeving Part 1
Update 7:It just got a little higher
Update 8: Preweekend update/Teaser
Update 9:Almost done
Update 10.1: Hardware arrives in installed
Update 10.2: Yummm
Update 10.3: HDD cage installed
Update 11: Knocking Off the Dust
Update 12: Just some random work to to bring you up to speed.
Update 13: Getting ready to get wet.
Update 14: Oops... That wasn't suppose to happen

Specs:
Lian Li PC A05NB
Mobo: Sabertooth P67
Cpu: i5-2500k
Cooling DD TDX water block, Magicool 420 rad, XSPC Razor 5870, MCP655,
Ram: RipjawsX 1600mhz 2x4gb
GPU: ATI 5870
PSU: Seasonic X750
Storage: 2 Intel X25-V, 2x 500gb Samsung, 250gb Samsung

So far this is the current state of my A05N. Top and side panels off and all. But this is hopefully only temporary.

I will be daring enough to squeeze 3x140mm fans in the top panel. I will be putting a 2x140mm fan setup in the bottom but that's not as daring as the top. In the top of the A05N the frame rails that just happen to be so perfectly spaced that I can squeeze 3x140mm up there with 1/16in between them.

But I already have my fans ordered and hopefully on there way to me. 5x sexy Noctua NF-p14 FLX should be arriving at my door in a week or so.

Oh I love Noctua's... My phone doesn't do the beauty justice.

Ya she will get a coat on the inside. I know a guy who is just starting to get into powder coating and I may be able to talk him into practicing on my case. But painting will be the last thing on my list.

I may do some sleeving. The sleeved mobo cable for my x650 was done by the previous owner and I'm not sure what brand of sleeving it is but to be honest I don't really like it. Maybe that's just because I didn't do it myself. I find it really stiff and hard to manipulate. That could also be because of the close quarters in my case.

Your cable management has always been better than mine.

You finally have a camera? What is the 2x P14 flx for the Noctua NH-C14?

Eh, my new phones has an acceptable camera. There are 2 NF-P14's on my heat sink. One topside and an another down below. I'm getting lucky with my cables I only need 4 of the cables from my PSU. The cable management in this case is minimal but I'm managing. As of now everything is zip tied behind the drive bays.

yes cable management is a pain... but since you are keeping the hdd cage then it should be fine.

Well I'm not so sure about that just yet. I have nothing but 2.5in drives 2x SSD and a couple laptop drives. I have great idea for moving them into the spare 5.25 bay and getting direct airflow to them. I have an 80gb drive just sitting is there, not even hooked up. I'm not sure what I will do with it. yet. But I think I will be keeping the HHD bay.

And btw your A05 looks beautiful. I love the orange and white.

That is my plan is if I do end up sleeving. Just not sure what colors I'm going to be using. I may do a Noctua tribute or just stick with the typical boring black.
