    My Tempest grew a little home-built fan controller.

    Welcome to the club O.prime!:toast:

    That is a sweet setup! I noticed you removed the filters from the front bays which makes very visible to the inside, cool!

    That's a sweet setup right there. I need a table like that ! :toast:

    You need to work on your cable management, though. It could use some tidying.

    thanks for all the comments guys appreciate them =) i no i was going to have a crack at the cables today just didnt have time =/ is there any good way that you guys have found at keeping them all out of sight or tidier than what they are noticed its a bit hard to keept them all together. Yeah i took the filters out of the front as my room seems to get quite hot so took them off for it to breath a bit better its still got the other fan filters on though which seem to do the trick =)

    Hey guys ive just managed to clean the cables up in my case as suggested =) tried my best to stop all the cables stopping my air flow and making it look tidier, but ive also added an antec tri cool to cool my 2x 260GTXs a bit better as ive started to overclock them tell me what you think
    [​IMG]
    and my personal best 3dmark vantage with the cards now overclocked
    [​IMG]
    do you guys think it looks any tidier than before or if i need to move them a bit more? =)

    Looks like you got pretty much the "classic" cable management for the Tempest done. Bind cables together and keep 'em low to the mobo tray section. About all you can do with a Tempest without modding it.

    Much better ! :rockout:

    thanks for all your great comments guys appreciate them :) still looks no where as cool as yours though snapshot how long did it take for you to do the paint work and mods to your tempest? Evolva your looks rather epic in red :p suprised its not like daylight in your room at night lol liking your PSU there delta aswell where it glows blue where your cables are connected looks sweet :cool:

    Shall I move you to the Tempest on the member list?

    It's not too difficult to have cleaner cable management in your case, you just have to be more creative and spend a lot more time with it. Check this guys....here is the very first build with my tempest! before the new hardware, mods and the knowledge of c/m.:eek: These pics are embarrassing:laugh:

    The high intensity of RED awesome!:rockout: Looks like the inside of your case is on fire.:p

    Well it's hard to say because some of the mods were spread out over a course of 2 years. But all the mods excluding the psu cut, backplate, and rear fan grill cut were done together including the painting. I'd say it all took about 3 weeks because I hda to barrow the Dremel from a friend. The paint job alone took me 3 days if you include priming, sanding, drying, 2nd and 3rd coats.

    These are the only pics I took of the paint job (bad cell phone pics, sorry)

    I got rid of my Aerocool Touch2000 and went back to a simple knob controller. The touch screen was cool, but I didn't like it because I had to actually look at what I was doing. Now I can game and just turn them up with any distractions.:) I will mod the led's to Orange ones soon.

    (no, the window res is not hooked up, but just chill'in in there for the future water build._

    yes, that's something I don't like about my Sentry LX and I was about to buy one of these
    http://www.alternate.es/html/produc...ión&l2=Ventiladores&l3=Control del ventilador
    but I read a review telling the damn leds where incredibly bright, and I hate seeing the source of light directly...

    BTW, let us see the change to orange leds as soon as you do it ;)
