    Specs:
    Conroe E6600 @ 3.4GHz, Asus P5B-E, 2GB DDRII-800 OCZ ram @ 850MHz, Albatron 8800GTX 768MB, OCZ gameXstream 600W, 22" Chimei widescreen LCD, Logitech MX518 mouse. 2x 200GB samsung drives, one for vista, one for XP pro. Pioneer DVR-110 16x DVD-RW drive.

    Mods:
    Cut the case drive bays so the GTX would fit, upgraded CPU cooler to a noctua 120mm, added 2x92mm intakes. Added Scythe Kama bay 120mm fan intake to the DVD bays to increase airflow.

    Benchmarks will come in a comments post - that way i can update/format them correctly.

    Yeah i wanted it to look minimal - clean and tidy as possible, while fast and quiet (well, as quiet as a GTX can get)

    Nothing snazzy, but extremely clean and tidy!


    Perhaps you could cut a window into the side of the case and fit some LED fans/neon lights to make it look more 'shiny' .


    8/10.

    yes, yes they bloody did. Theres a new revision out which uses straps, instead of a cord. The Antec solo uses the same ones, i sold one of those to a friend and stole two of his straps :)
