    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    ASUS P5N32-E SLI, Intel P4 3.2GHz OC'd to 3.84GHz, 2GB Crucial Ballistix (not pictured), XFX 7900GT 256MB, Dell Perc 3/SC U160 SCSI Adaptor, three 18.2GB 10k drives in RAID 0, Seagate 500GB 7200.9, Seagate 250GB 7200.10, Samsung 20x SH-S202 Burner, ABS Tagan BZ900 900w Modular PSU, Antec 300 with all Tri-Cool fans. ThermalTake BigWater SE cooling kit.

    Mods:
    ThermalTake water cooling.

    My first water build, mainly out of spare parts from upgrades done to my main system.

    I somewhat dislike this cheap ThermalTake unit, it gets air bubbles in the loop really easy due to a silly design of the res if the unit is moved, but whatever. It keeps the temps of that old P4 in check so all is well.

    Do you have two fans on that radiator, or is one just a spacer to clear the domed exaust outlet?

    If you didn't have that fan on the MOSFETs (the one which cools the MOSFETs and the heatpipe from the NB), you could easily fit that unit on the inside of your case which would make it look a lot better. That is basically how I have my first radiator on mine setup (http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/1652/__1.jpg).

    Interesting work with that IDE cable. I can see that you have put some time and effort into trying to make it neat and clean.

    It is a spacer. I ran into issues fitting it on the inside, it was blocking all airflow to the MOSFETs, they were getting insanely hot. I don't care too much for the looks either but it works and is running cool. Nice looking rig BTW.

    Hmm... where are you getting all your computer hardware which you are selling cheap? Five-finger discount?

    i think this case does not do much to represent your hardware very much. the stacker 690 would have been a better choice. Nice try though 5/10
