    it has allready been modded, but there will probably be some minro things i want to change when i get it

    this will mostly be a build log, with minor modding added :)

    im negotiating a deal on 3 rads, 1 triple 120 thin rad, 2 dual rads also thin ones

    they will be painted white or some other color which i still have to choose :)

    HW will most likely be what i have now, see specs for more info, OR i will sell what i have now (MB and CPU) to get SB or bull dozer :)

    next update in a few days :)

    looks nice roomy space it looks would be nice if you place many hdds, do cable management and so
    just paint the inside with black then do the mod

    if i were to paint it at all it would either be Candy Apple red og Lamborghini orange, both with black detailing :)

    but yeah, i do plan to get a ton of HD's in it, might even get a Atom board on one side to make a small file server :)


    :cool::toast::rockout:

    going to pick it up in 5 hours ~ :D

    Subbed, I see it well painted in black to match the scheme of your stuff. White is good and rare, but when dust settles in, it will tirn yellowish like a custom case I had a couple of years ago. Nice looking case bro.

    the case was powdercoated in 2008

    the guy i bought it from was a smoker and he hadnt used the case in a year, and i just wiped it off with a cloth and it was just as new again :)

    :rockout:

    ofc cable management will be 100x better.

    im thinking about putting this in the front of the case if i have the room for it

    gonna measure tonight and see if i have the room for it

    then buy a 10mm clear acryllic panel to replace the front bezel with to make the case ultra clean.

    for now its only 2 dual rads
    [​IMG]

    the plate can hold 2 triple rads
    and the case can take 1 in the top over the psu area

    i still need a cpu block, a pump, fittings, tubing and a res :)

    so going slow, but steady :D

    the rad on the left is one i got for free from VelvetWafer along with 2 fittings, 1 meter tubing and some u channel rubber :D

    he is one awesome guy ^^
