    wow.. the PC Power & Cooling 750 has a LOT of wires..

    [​IMG]
    typical rear panel

    First thing I notice is this case is 10X stronger than the Rosewill case I did, very solid case.

    Ok folks what are we gonna do to fix this sucka up?

    I really like these cases, they actually took them off the market and made changes due to suggestions. I have a few here at work. I just got another for $39 with free shipping.

    get them, they are excellent for the money. One thing I noticed is they are not very deep (not any room for long GPUs) and with all the racks for drives there would be no way for air to move through

    and these gots to go

    Bust out the drill and remove some rivets (lucky they use aluminum ones)

    Thanks Don... Hey Steevo how about running the rad in the front?

    LOL, same case but I have a couple DOA mobos I use to mock things up.. It sucks when you drill through a good mobo *(especially when its someone elses)

    More holes for better air flow.

    Works OK for me, then no problems opening the door, you could even turn the radiator port side down and run a short tube into the pump, that might work well. If you could mount the HDD in the 5.25 cage I would like that.

    I would like a Tee (in the highside) I forgot to get on the loop so I can fill it and pump out 99% of the air, a little air and the coolant I have turns it aquamarine blue and lets me know I have flow. I used Ace to get a few fittings, if you need a bit more $$ let me know. :D

    If the CD drive will fit above the triple and the HDD can be mounted in front of it VIA some mods that will handle all my cooling.

    the DVD would fit fine, and the Hdds could go in sideways below the DVD that way the mobo will get plenty of air.
    Is a rack for 2 Hdds ok?

    Yes, even one is fine. I believe a WHS will be my next home build.

    lol yes the pc pnc has a crap-load of cables. I have most of mine stuffed behind my mobo tray and the side panel is bulging soooo much :laugh:

    I'm excited to see some more of your work, what are your/steevo's plans for this one?

    Always love to see your work MK (and especially the final result). Next chance I get with funds, would you be willing to mod a Rocketfish? :D

    I plan on nothing and am open to anything, after seeing his work on other projects the only general direction I have given is black, and blue.

    lol, well if there's anybody I'd ever be willing to give total control over my case to, mark would definitely be top on the list :rockout: Can't wait to see what he comes up with.

    I am kind of funny, I never really know what I will do till I do it. Cooling is important to me so I need to see how all the hardware goes together (1,000,000s of possible combos) than I try to make air get in and out as easy as possible.
    Thanks Steevo

    I know what you mean about that. I finally just got the parts to put my main rig back together recently and when I was planning everything out, I just sat there and stared at all for like 15 minutes before doing anything. And then it took me forever to finish cuz I kept changing my mind or having something not fit/reach properly. And that was with hardly any modding :eek:

    Here is kind of what I did to the back (still rough)
    Before
    [​IMG]

    After a bit of trimming
    [​IMG]
    Those stamped fan grills block LOTS of air.

    I definitely know what you mean, I change my mind hundreds of times each mod.

    My baby is bare!!!!!!! :D



    More exciting than a football game.

    That PC P&C doesn't fit the powersupply hole quite right either, the first one I did in this case fit odd also. But it is stable on the shelf they built in and the weight (alot of weight) is not just on the screws, if it had just been them there is no way I would ahve shipped it in the case. Sorry about the peanuts Mark, but I ould find nothing else here at home and I have a few boxes full of them. They are the only thing I don't like about neweggs shipping, they are a PITA to get rid of, and they generate static in this dry climate.

    Had to subscribe to this thread, I love to watch another beast being turned into a one-of-a-kind piece of art.

    Still think you should do something with the colour Orange, not bright, but a dark matte orange :) :toast:

    Our bathroom when I was a kid was burnt orange, horrible. It was either going to be brights or the standard black, and with the desk I am going to build the brights woudn't work out. So black and blue to match my Saitek Eclipse and Logitech mouse.
