    The bad thing is that all the cable management I just did will have to be redone. I bought longer SATA cables about a week ago, I guess I'll wait until they get here to do it.

    nah, I like the looks of my case. Besides what's the fun of cable management if your case makes it easy for you? ;)



    I'm thinking on a few mods for my case. I saw that Scythe has 120x120x12 fans and I think that I could mount a couple at the bottom of the case (the case has a 2cm clearance from the bottom thanks to the server style feet). I'm also considering installing a 140mm fan at the top to replace the current 120mm one. That'll allow me to make a bigger hole and make it look nicer. I really didn't have any experience when I did this:

    I could also paint the internals black but that'll have to wait a while as I'm going to buy some hardware to turn my previous rig into an HTPC, only thing left is a case but HTPC cases are quite expensive :( I guess a regular desktop case should be fine but I need one with a hidden 5.25" bay. :ohwell:

    for someone that's had no experience cutting holes in cases as you put it you've done a fairly descent job of it and trust me when I say I've seen some really bad blow hole jobs with jagged edges and bits stickin out just waiting for an unsuspecting finger

    That's a nice case. What are the two red things at the back? :confused: LEDs?

    Cadaveca answered that one :)

    Yup it's the same board. The PSU is the bog standard one that comes with the SG07. I just bunched up the cables with cable ties and hid them in a small gap behind the graphics card, below the optical. Little brute force was needed, but everything seems to be getting power properly.

    Options for overclocking are very limited, but think i'll aim for a 4GHz with powersave features on.

    Seems more than realistic. ;) SB doesn't need alot to clock up the CPU speed.

    Nice build, for sure.
