    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    Processor: AMD Athlon64 X2 2.6ghz w/Rosewill cooler » Motherboard: ASRock A780 LM » Cooling: »2 Evercool 80mm Fans, 2 LOGISYS 80mm Purple LED Fans, 3 CoolerMaster 120mm Fans, and 1 NMB 120mm Fan Memory: G.SKILL 4GB 240-Pin SDRAM DDR2 800 » Video Card: Sparkle NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT » HDD: 1 Seagate IDE 160GB and 1 Toshiba SATA 160GB » CD/DVD Drive: ASUS SATA DVD-RW/CD-RW Lightscribe drive » CRT/LCD Model: Dell E173FP (17" LCD) » Case: Cooler Master CM690 » Sound Card: Using onboard for now. » PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-400CX 400W ATX12V V2.2 80 » Software: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

    Mods:
    Added a fan to the heatsink on the 9500 GT, changed out the fans normal 3 pin for a 2 pin so it could attach to the card itself. The NMB 120mm fan is from a Mac G4, had a two pin, changed it for a 3/4 pin. Rigged up the Laptop hard drive on to the quick detach hard drive bay.

    Still a HUGE work in progress, I intend on upgrading the Mobo, CPU, RAM, PSU, and graphic card, as well as getting 2-4 more hard drives and getting rid of the seagate 160. I also have 2 more fans on order as well as a window case side.

    Why would someone rate my rig a 1? My last set up was with a junker case and didn't get a one.

    Edit- To whomever rated my case a 5, thank you.

    Waiting on a few things before I update again. Since I have a 5770 now.

    I want to wait for two more R4's, my new PSU, Mobo, HDDs, and CPU.

    nice selection, the video cards look sweet. do those fans light up?

    that hdd should give a nice performance boost too, with the whole density thing and all. and cache.

    looks like the ram is out of stock atm

    PSU looks solid for the build also

    It is. But I have to find a job before I can order my new stuff. Lol

    The video card fan doesn't light up, but that's not a big deal to me, as I have 9 Blue LED fans in my case. :D

    My ASUS EAH5770 that I have now... Some light does get into the blade area. But not much.

    I'm currently trying to get a job working for a PC shop. :D
