    First up we have the bare case it's self. Thanks to Scaminatrix for the great deal and helping me build the case.

    These are the parts I'm using for now, my intention is to sell the GPU/CPU/MOBO and other major components but keep the case/cooling
    [​IMG]

    This build was my first time using a removable tray and it's awesome. This should be a standard feature in all cases.
    [​IMG]
    Getting the water cooling fitted, I need to make a another fan mounting bracket for the rad so I can double up on fans: ]

    Fans n grills! I've had these grills sat around since my Sunbeam Transformer casemod a few years back, I just cleaned the paint off.
    [​IMG]
    Almost Done, missing a set of molex cables in this shot so 4 fans and the fan controller are out of action, just was eager to see it running : ]
    [​IMG]
    Here come the close ups, this is my rad it's an old Cooling King 85mm thick all copper type (100mm including it's shroud)
    I would love to tell you about it's performance but I need another decent radiator to compare it to.
    [​IMG]
    Top shot, believe it or not I have actually tidied the cables in here, but with no where to hide them they end up looking a mess anyway. Might buy some plastic tubing to help conceal the mess.
    [​IMG]
    Close up of the fans, framing is a bit messed up but I like this picture, focus is nice! :D
    [​IMG]
    Lil window for checking out motherboard, also note the hideous blue fan eventually that will be replaced by something non led.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    And the "Finished" case, again I don't intend on keeping these fans, I'd prefer to fill it with Deltas and have them at 1000-1200rpm for 24/7 use.
    [​IMG]


    And so that's my pc at the moment, I expect to be enjoying it for another month or so unless I find a job in that time. :]

    it's nice, i think you can paint green fans to red like others.

    Cheers this is just the fans I had laying around, when I build a system into this case properly I'll likely use all matching fans. Either White NZXT 9 blade fans or have lots of 38mm Delta fans :toast:

    It might either take off, start moving around on your desk on its own, or just suck in the contents of your smoke tray...
    scaminatrix and pantherx12 say thanks.

    Well it's kinda finished, when I get another job I'll be changing all the hardware inside : ]

    Runs hot as hell ( hot enough to burn flesh) without those heatsinks :laugh: With them it's a far more tolerable flesh burning :laugh:

    OOOhhh just you wait scam :laugh:
