    Noob answer here; The psu fan intakes? I always thought the psu fan was an outtake, and I have it like that so it blows air onto the GPU. But now that you've told me that, I better flip it :).

    Yes, all power supplies intake and exhaust out the rear ventilated holes. I have seen some people mod their psu's by flipping the fan, but that breaks the warranty and doesn't seem worth it to me.

    as promised the Nemesis white 2004 NZXT case I will upload pics of my temporary rigs

    pros: toolless lightweight (for a 2004 SEC case) space and outlook

    cons: top placed PSU, fragile plastic claws (pci slots) inlook (plain aluminium)

    im in wait of a Thermaltake Element S for my mainrig but the NZXT will be a base for a retro Athlon XP 2000+ ATI 9700 rigs

    for the moment it contain my main rigs gears (system spec)

    edit: as I switch for a Thermaltake case I cant let that one down xD and I didn't had the fund for a new case, or I would take a Phantom or another ATX case uATX like the Vulcan would be a good one but my new and old mobo are ATX I might get a Vulcan for my uATX RS780L I have aside once I upgrade my mainrig for a 8320/50 Vishera cpu and a set of 32gb ram, so I could re use my 8gig and the 1035T I have atm xD (the Element S was brought for roughly 40$ its factory new but a bit dusty from a depo sale)

    AND there it is!!! The NEMESIS:toast::rockout:

    It's awesome to finally see some picture of this case, you kept her in great shape for one of Nzxt's first designs. I love how they incorporated the " N " with style in the side panel fan grill. You got some nice hardware in there too, and I am sure once you get the new psu this badboy will be look'in even better.

    Thanks again for bringing some old-school back to the club GreiverBlade :respect: T77~ digs this rig!



    Ps. Have you ever thought about cutting some holes in the back mobo tray to improve the cable management? It can be done, I did it to an older Apollo case (similar chassis) which surprisingly turned out great! check it out: here :)

    :Dwell the N style looks like the N from New Yorks Yankee ... a bit modified xD

    weeeeelll i could buy a Dremel ... or more upgrades ... (not mentioning the back pannel isnt riveted like the most of the cases i had)

    keep in mind that rigs gonna be a Athlon XP 2000+ oldschool setup once i get my second case (also it could be a 780G uATX board Phenom II 1035T 8gig ram if i find a sweet deals on a Vishera 8320/50 or even a 6300 BE and 32gig ram (not value one like i have atm))

    i check'd your link "similar is similar"(tm) same 5.35" 3.5" and 3.5" HDD cage layout and toolless system ... ACK curiosity (the human one ... not the Mars rover.. ) year of that Apollo? 2010 like the post ? i suspect they took the Nemesis for base of that one and changed the outlook or oposit ... strangely the Apollo looks older from the outside and fan pattern (i waaayyy prefere the Nemesis and his "front armor" xD)

    The Apollo case was released on October 24, 2006 :D

    It means Post Script.

    Its a latin expression meaning something you forgot to write in the main letter, or a footnote to conclude the letter.

    No i just like loud music hehe, I do like to try and make my own tunes using ableton live though :toast:

    I did do a bit of DJ'ing back in the days when i was 18 and have always loved my music.

    I no longer have the roland setup with the big speakers, I decided to buy new bass drivers for my old KEF Coda 3's and have them hooked up to a normal home amp now. The kef sound loads better to.

    The roland is old and picks up a lot of noise from the pc and it started to realy get up my nose haha.
