    Nice one: The rig (the cable's could be sorted to look much better) the hardware is quite respectable and change the stock cooler and you have some good overclocking on your hands my brother c2d is @ 3.7 with an arctic freezer 7
    i will vote soon

    I have that same case but a dark red, with similar blue lighting. I cut the rear hole for the 120mm to have better exhaust airflow, put in a blue light bar up top. Good case for sure. Just wish they had a pre set 120mm front intake...I may modify later, but I have 2x80mm that do fine. You should put a 120mm for that reat exhuast. Do you have a fan at the top 80mm spot? What about for front intakes? Also if you're sticking with that OE Cpu Cooler a fan in that side vent could help get cool air to that cpu for more effective cooling. :toast:

    Nice setup Binsky!

    Hey Kursah
    I was just thinking about doing that.
    Can you recommend a good cpu cooler. (Besides thermaltake V1) I put it in and it actually raised my cpu temp!

    Thx for your comment, Binksy!

    It always amazes me why someone would vote 1. Gave you a 10 to counteract that bloody dickhead! :)

    Binksy, I personally use the AC Freezer Pro 7, it's cheap and does a great job. It comes with MX-1 applied, and that is pretty much considered the #1 competitor against AS 5, plus it doesn't take 200 hours to set to get best cooling results. I got mine for like $25. It's pretty quiet, pretty efficient, and very cheap. It's easily the best price/performance cooler ATM in my mind. Sure there are better, but you WILL pay for it. It lines up perfect with my 120mm exhuast and it has it's lower 3 fins blowing air on the rear CPU power capacitors. I highly recommend it! Hope that helps! :toast:

    Also, cutting that hole for my 120mm in the rear helped exuast airflow quite well. The only thing the case could use is a fan where the VGA vent is for better video card cooling. But aside from that, it's a good case and tough to beat for the price!

    Also another tip, you have plenty of room on the other side of the 3.5" HDD cage for hiding those cables! That's what I did and it cleaned it up a lot! Takes a little more work, just don't stretch the door wires too tight or it will cause binding in the door, run them under your HDD (I mount my HDD at the lowest spot so the intake fans blow cool air over it and keep it cooler, plus it helps to hide those wires!).

    The cabling leaves a lot to be desired, in a practical sense however its fine. Remove the slot covers because the 8800's direct heat outlet system leaks (why cant they seal it :wtf:). The supplied 80mm fan isnt enough in my opinion; upgrade it to the 120mm fans, do the same for the intake.

    As tk said the wiring is frankly horrible. Look at either my case or tk's for some ideas on hiding those wires. I vote a 3

    Something I just noticed is the blue led fan in the back needs to be switched around to where its blowing air out the back, not sucking it in.
