    Specs:
    AMD 6000 Quad, MSI 6770 Video, 8 Gig DDR2 (800) G. Skill, Asus M4A78 Plus, Asus N300 Wireless Adapter, Antec 900 Case, and 51” Samsung monitor. Water cooling by COOLER MASTER Seidon 120M RL-S12M-24PK-R1 Water Cooler

    Mods:
    Flipped power supply for better wire management, cut hole in bottom of case to facilitate the flipping of power supply, raised case with LED acrylic feet, cut access holes for wire management inside case and, removed front brace on case and trimmed benzyl to accommodate a slim line DVD burner and added one more set of Antec 900 fans, I have Carbon Fibered the inside of the case and have finally came up with a cable management solution for this case.

    This is one of my favorite cases but the ascetics have always been the hardest. I will now put it to rest it has been turned into my media center and the blue light add nice atmosphere to the room. I have read, looked, and studied a lot of Antec 900 Cases in search of ideas to make the cooling more efficient, and achieved a workable wire management solution.

    antec 900 is a beautiful case but the arrangement of the cables is no big deal
    we have to be imaginative
    for me "6-excellent" is the best, more than 6 for me has to be from another world.
    water cooling
    custom paintings
    build a case from scratch etc.

    I guesss there are a lot of things you miss in life

    At first I was not even going to quantify you comment but if you had read the information you would see that the system is water cooled, the inside has a custom finish, the case has been seriously been reshaped with the DVD drive being mounted at the bottom, and the power supply has been flipped with extended feet.

    So in response custom finish check, water cooling check, case remanufacturing check!

    Crazy clean job on the cabling. Where's the PCIe cable though?

    Looking at the card, it doesn't require one. I assume it's an "Eco" version of the HD6770 ;)

    That is correct this is not a gaming unit but built to act as a DVR and play blue ray card is more than capable and the computer runs pretty much all the time with out ever getting hot.
    Thank you for your comments.
