    (Right, Dunno where to post this so if any mods want to move this thread to a more suitable part of the forum, please do as u see fit.)


    After a long wait & a few finishing touches here & there Ive finally got the pics up of my 'new' rig I built like last month. Apologies for not uploading sooner.

    I didnt do any major modding to the case as i lack the skills and the tools so. all ive really done is added some lighting & tydied up the wiring a bit inside.

    The pics are also of my setup. & I hope to be getting a new illuminated keyboard to go with this setup as it looks fucking awesome when im sitting in the dark

    so heres the pics....

    apologies for the rather low quality - the best camera I can currently get my hands on is an old Sony DSC-P8 3.2MP that was released back in 2003 (LULS)

    The wiring is not that perfect yet. but it cant be helped. ive tidied up as much as i can in such a small case. my 4870 is so close to my hard drives its almost having sex with them

    *P.S

    Forgot to added that I also swapped out ATi's Vapour-X cooler on my 4870 temps are about 44-46'c Idle & 50-55'c Load. where as the Vapour-X use to let temps run up to 65'c+

    Nice setup....the 902 treating you well or is it still as bad as the 900 for cable management??

    its a 902 not a 1200.

    well since im more use to working with ATX cases fitting everything inside was a pit of a pain in the arse.

    you have to mount the cooler on the board before you install it which makes a it a little more difficult.

    as for cable management - stick with the Antec 1200. more space = more room to tuck cables away.

    its really cramped inside this case once all the kit is in

    I begg to differ... with the 900's its all in placement and the way your PSU is mounted.. here's a few pix of my 900 v.2 (not the 902)

    Gotta work extra hard to make the 900's shine....my Lian Li is soooo much nicer to work on and I cant express how happy I am with it.
