    If you own one and modified it or just want to show this great case off here is you thread. Here is mine. I know my cable management isn't great but a few of my cords are too short to hide. I intend to fix that problem shortly.

    Here is a slight mod I did to the front 200mm fan to make the fan quiet down on high you will notice the grate is gone. Took these in a dark room with my Android so better pictures will be soon to come.

    I have to admit I did a decent job cutting that fan grate out but I cannot find a modular cable that is long enough to reach behind and over my motherboard. I hate to replace a fairly new 200.00 power supply because of a cord.


    yes changed the title a bit.

    Awesome, thanks! I love my 800D. Definitely one of my favorite cases, especially for water.

    We just need a nice little sig banner. Maybe something simple and black, to show the elegance of obsidian.

    Note to self/ use gloves when taking blood thinners lol... I nicked myself and bled like a stuck pig rofl while cutting the front grill out. Took about 5min with dull side cutters but the noise is NOW GONE!!!

    And with the dust cover clicked into place, you would never know a hack was hiding :laugh:

    Im thinking of using some small automotive rubber hose that will be cut down the whole length and slip it over the part I cut.. What ya'll think?

    I found out my motherboard needs only the 4 pin 12v psu connection so the the offending cord now is hidden:D


    I would buy a pair of tin snips at home depot (sharp ones) and trim the left overs down a bit or use a dremmel and cut them off with a re-enforced cut off wheel. After that buy some car trunk c molding like I did and feed it over the imperfections. If your cheap like I am return the tin snips and your out about ten bucks for the molding. The molding will look like these but will be cheaper at auto zone. http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g47...sories-Fan_Accessories-Fan_Molding-Page1.html You can also pick up a flat black paint pen and use it for any mis-strokes and repaint after grinding you can find those in the modeling section of Walmart or Auto Zone carries them.

    I've a got an electric side cutter for tin and will work very well for what I need it to do. It cuts a radius very cleanly but I couldn't find the charger. Charger found and charging atm. Ill give it a go tomorrow and see what becomes of it. I couldn't believe the difference though.

    Cable management on the other side kinda messy.

    Here is some pics when I had my Corsair H100 but it died on me so I'm stuck with my Mega for now.

    Nice for sure, can you tell me how you mounted the fan in the top drive bays? And what cover you used to fill in the space of the factory covering?

    I know people have used a demcifilter but it reduces air flow so it kinda defeats the purpose or so I'm told. Super nice cases guys puts mine to shame

    More then 2MB in size? Thats my problem. I must set my camera to the lowest setting to upload here. That really sucks when you have HD quality photo's to share, not the shitty low quality ones
