There are MUCH better options that then Antec for cases around that size. That Antec is not much better then the Lenovo he is already using in terms of cooling capabilities. 2x 92mm is not much better then the amount of 80mm fans he can put in his current case. Even this Rosewill case allows better cooling, for not that much more expense.
Rosewill LINE-M Micro-ATX Mini Tower Computer Case...
What id like to know is where he is putting his system if he cant fit a bigger case. You shouldn't be putting your system in a compartment in a desk or anything like that. Just restricts airflow to the system anyways.
Oh hell no...cmon... I was doing that back in 2001 with my first computer. No reason ANY PC should look like that with todays practically self modding cases. Car wire loom, really?
Very nice and tidy, like it!
Kinda old school right there, i don't really like it at all neither ... but it's giving some car-style as the V8 looks like a car-engine
Here is mine ATM what do you guys think.

Yeah I love this case, I have my HAF 932 still, Got this as a gift, so cant complain but the case is a beast the airflow is unbeatable.
Here is a pic of my whole set up.
Where did you get that desk?
I got the desk from a friend who was getting rid of it, so I got it for free I was trying to find another for a friend who ran 3 monitors, but couldnt find it.
Need to replace my completely worn down Eclipse II
It's much better then the alternative and if the op doesn't have time, tools, materials to sleeve his psu or money to buy one already done its a pretty good alternative
Ton's of people still use it. It works and is cheap end of story.
Updated pics... Will try to take better soon, not that it really matters Went for the clean look. Wish the black cabled x750 supplies were out when I built this but all good. Will get time one day to sleeve them.
But he was doin it back in 2001 tho!
I love the plastic car wire wraps, I just bought 20 feet to redo wiring in my Ford.
Waiting on the adapter so I can use my front panel USB 3.0 which my motherboard doesn't have, but here is mine.
And no I don't care about cable management since I can't see it when I put the side on...
But it effects the air flow
About the same way as having "unwrapped" wires in your case. Nothing detrimental in any way.
New build from my previous i7 940 setup finally an upgrade!
Just switched out the Corsair fans with my Scythe Gentle Typhoons and wow there is a huge difference in sound.
One of the standoff screws broke on me while screwing it in sadly.
Here is a few more pics with everything up and running normal even with 3 screws.
Sucks that one of the standoffs broke
I just installed a H100i on my secind rig in specs and love it. It is the first AIO water cooler I have used and am impressed with the temps.
^ While not a 100i, I LOVE my 80i. Temps have been outstanding and via the reviews, overclocked the 80i performs within 1c of a 100i. The windows interface has been really cool! Just cannot quite fit the 100i. And geeky to most, but I dig that you can set it to change colors with temp. For example at idle, the corsair logo is white. If under any load, she turns red.
Curious why some changed out the fans on the 100i? The stock 80/100i fans are much more powerful than even the SP series and rated outstanding (same blade design - much higher RPM than SP series). While not as cool looking as the SP series and overall not awesome looking, why change to anything else when they perform outstanding?
Joining in the H100i club . It will be a while til I can save up for a good mobo and a custom water loop so bought something that is inexpensive compared to those two for now.
Oh and here's my new monitor from Dell received from the MRS.
And my current setup
Not done yet...
Getting my braid on.....
Waiting for the right ssd to go sale.. want 4 120gb in a ridiculously unnecessary raid 0
Gonna do my own window too.
ensabrenoir, VERY nice I dig it! Burning cash on the quad raid 0 though.. I know I went dual raid 0 ssd's previously.. Actually response time increased a bit which made it feel a micro tad less responsive in regular use - surfing.
Random, VERY clean desktop!
