This case originally designed by She loved E and made by Dwood, was up for production and I was lucky enough to snag one for myself. Many of you would have seen this case as it won Mod of the Month in November!

R I G - H I S T O R Y

So I built my first rig about a year and a half ago with some help from a friend. He was not into the looks of a rig. Then I found OCN and my whole world changed biggrin.gif Suddenly I had to make changes. I learnt how to take pictures of rigs, cable management, and that a stock cooler was just sad.

Phase 1 of Rig building: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
400

Then I met OCN and changed things up a bit: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
400

From here I got my self a H50: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
700

Then I got a new GPU when I found out my HD 5750 was crap... (thought it was a godly card) (And I learnt how to use a real camera smile.gif ) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

New PSU <3 No more CPU Power Cable going across mobo!!!! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

Then I found out about Matx rigs, and SSD's and needless to say my pockets weren't happy about it... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
450

Got rid of my H50 for a Noctua NH-C14 Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Got rid of the Noctua NH-C14 and traded it in for some watercooling Snorkle.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
