    Specs:
    » CPU...Intel Q6600 "GO" » RAM...G-Skill DDR2 800 (DDR2 800) » MOBO...Evga 680i A1 » GPU"s..EVGA 8800GTS 640mb » Sound card..S/B Fatality pro » HDD...Seagate SATA 320gb » PSU...Enermax Revolution 1050 » Case...Lian Li PC-G75 » Cooling..Swiftech "Apex" Ultra.(CPU and Northbridge) » Sound card..S/B Fatality pro » MONITOR..Asus 25"

    Mods:
    Removed everything due to PSU failure...painted inside black. Removed hdd mounting at bottom of case and mounted hdd at the top moved psu to bottom. Cut holes in mobo tray and glued a peice of rubber matting behind holes and cut slits as final touch for the wire management overhaul. Looks like a completely different machine now.

    Well looking at your "The Third(No revisions)" I can see there is quite a bit of color matching and nifty lighting that also goes with the general theme which is probably why it got high scores.

    "The 2nd: FINAL REVISION" just doesn't have the pizazz of the aforementioned one. The wiring is clean and it looks cool but it just doesn't have the mandatory amount of flare. It also clearly falls far from the Apple level of sleek (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).

    I didn't vote on it, really because I didn't know I could vote on it until about 3 seconds ago. (Heck I didn't even know that I could click on pictures to make them bigger...) Additionally I'm color blind and completely style inept. My computer reflects my ocular inadequacies and looks somewhat like a bicycle being attacked by a bear.

    Nice paint job! I like how you added rubber matting for the c/m holes and cool idea moving the hdd cage to the top. It's nice to see when people actually perform "mods" to their rig, rather then just slapping really good hardware in a case and getting a high score. 7/10 from me :)
