    To view this case mod, go here.

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

    Specs:
    case: aspire x-cruise,intel 975x board,intel pentium 3.0 gig 930D processor,ocz gold 2x1gb pc2 5400 memory, western digital raptor 36.7 gig 10K hdd, ati radeon x1600 pro 512 mb video card,creative sb-audigy se sound card,creative 56k modem,ultra titanium w/uv and modular cable system 550 watt psu,BTC 52xcdrw&16xdvd-rom,HIVA 16x8x dvdburner & cd-rom, generic 3.5 floppy,operating system is windows xp pro w/sp2. oh yes and if interested i have am using a 19" view sonic lcd monitor and a microsoft 6000 wireless keyboard and mouse, and my speakers are a 6 year old set of klipsch thx 4.1 speakers that sound pretty good for a computer sound system.

    Mods:
    the only mods so far are the green uv cable sleeving,also addedd 120mm green uv rear exhaust fan, 80mm red uv intake fan on top of case, took both 80mm blue uv fans that came with case and mounted them in the front of the case also as intake fans,installed 80mm green uv intake fan on clear side panel of case, also installed 2x70mm blue uv pci slot fan card to help cool video card, and also intalled vantec iceberg dual cooler fans on hdd. as for the cpu stock cooler i instead went with the arctic cooler freezer pro 7 with arctic silver 5 thermal grease. i also intalled a set of blue uv cathodes and 2 red uv slot protectors for the open memory slots.

    as far as the basic modifications i did i enjoyed re-sleeving the cables the most,since i've custom wrapped fishing rods for about 30 years now the tedium of the sleeving work was right up my alley. all the fans were added for looks and for the fun of it at first, but then when i started looking at the temps on the 930d it turned out i could use more cooling if i wanted, it is a hot running processor and i dont even o/c, at least not yet! well i'm tired of writing for now, but feel free to ask me questions and i will try to answer.

    I like it - looks GOOD!

    See subject-line/title above, & this photo stood out from the rest, imo @ least:

    * VERY NICE!

    (Especially all "lit-up", the cables actually LOOK COOL in that setup, & I am NO FAN of cables hanging (though, guilty as heck of it myself, lol!)).

    APK

    P.S.=> The biggest part of what I've liked here, & learned from thru observation, is how NEAT you folks here make your systems internally (some folks I had trouble telling if their systems were FULLY 'wired up & ready for action' they were so neat - no visible evidence of powercables, drive cables, you-name-it)... apk

    I give it a 8 looks great with the window, but when you take the wall off the wires truly show. Nice setup.

    A lot of wires you got there... but they're all green, wich creates a harmonic ..atmosphere (sorry, currently thats the only word I could come up with by not peeking in a dictionnary).

    Therefore I like it :D
