    right i decided to move all the shit in my desktop to a new case:

    [​IMG]

    i've never "built" a computer before so obviously.. no easy feat :laugh:

    started with the easiest taskk.. moved disc drive!

    [​IMG]

    i was like wow this is easy.. i'll do the same to the card reader:

    [​IMG]

    that didn't turn out so well.. there's nowhere for me to screw it in the 3.5" (i think it's 3.5?) bay

    so i can have the card reader.. but everytime i use it.. it'll fall into the case :roll:

    then i moved these bad boys:

    into the case:

    (by the way.. will they be blocking the airflow coming from that fan? or is it good to put them in front of the fan? someone tell me these things

    and now i've got a few things screwed in.. i should be taking out the motherboard and screwing it on either on sunday or monday and plugging the power cables in :rockout:

    Can you fill out your System spec?

    And looks good. When i had my case, i had the HD's infront of the 120mm Intake, temps were low 20s... now in my desk their 40c constant.

    Hi :)

    Give the hard discs room to breathe, have a space between them.

    having a fan in front of hdd is good either way. if they block your airflow is because the hdd are receiving the airflow, thus keeping them cooler and extending their life. if it doesnt block, is also good because it cools the rest of your case

    also i just looked the pic of the hdd and the 3.5 bays and its place for screw the card reader. you screw it on the free line, anywere where it can be good with the front bezel.
