    Nah, it's just one of those "backwards" cases. His is the Lian-Li PC-A05S.

    Thanks :)

    It's not the best P55 board there is (EVGA P55 Classified, anyone?), but it was reasonably affordable, clocks like made, and has a ton of PCIe slots. I've always liked Asus' subdued color scheme (vs something crazy like GB)
    Nah, this case is upside down. It's very small (which is great), but I'm considering replacing it with an Antec 300 or CM 690II Advanced for better airflow and cable management....and it'll be very cramped with my 2nd GPU

    i'd take the cm690II over the A300 any day, might be a tad more expensive but its all well worth it

    A300 HAS seen its glory days, time to step aside now:D

    I liked my last A300, but I'm still trying to debate whether it's worth it to get the 690II Advanced. Probably :)

    but the new 690 is the new budget king imo

    so yes definately worth it

    Agreed. Gee whiz, CD, an i7 and a new 470? You're getting pretty elite:toast:

    Beautiful bench, MR, love the twin batmobiles. By the way, haven't figured out how to fit your old water tank into my rig, yet.

    how is it not good with a water cooling loop, i found it to be one of the easiest cases to use, i'll take some new pics tonight after the fireworks to show you how i got it set up, i've changed mine a lot since i got it.

    I like it being quiet that is a big bonus :). Thanks,but still not happy with things. Need to give everything a good cleaning and a fresh paint job.(and put the NB under water so the spot cool can go)

    Something you might want to do at some point is replace that slightly-red fan on the vid card with one that isn't painted ;)
