    Haha dust also falls from the air man, it does not matter were your power supply is located either way you will be cleaning the dust out of it. Most cases that have bottom mount psu have dust filters on the bottom anyway.

    I personally don't see anything "nice" about that case ... outdated "classic" layout with bad cable management , i think i would be a lot more happy with something like the great Corsair 500R , actully even my old CM690 II has better internal layout than this Piece of aluminium .

    the PSU is a 850 watt seasonic gold the thing barley even gets hot and the fan is rarely ever on since its a hybrid fan - now that im going more power efficient and dumping the high power video card its going to be total overkill and the fan probably wont ever turn on again - - problem solved :D

    How so? not sure i get what you mean

    To each their own, some people like more of a challenge when it comes to modding i don't have a lot of time each day to work on it but trust me when i say it will look 100x better when its done.

    Guess I'll be the one to say it.
    I like it.
    I think the reason it seems to everyone else that the cable management is bad is because you have a m-ATX board in a case for a full ATX board, thus making the board look tiny, or conversely the case look huge.

    The air comes usually from the side panel or the front hole.

    LiquidMac I5 v1.2

    Well, as i lost the effect on Mayhem Aurora Tharsis (due to the Apogee XT, didn't read it was incompatible :banghead:) ... had concerns about the GFX temperature and also uncomfortable loudness ... i decided to upgrade again so:

    - Added MCW82 to the loop with Enzotech full copper heatsinks for RAM (6mm high) and VRM's (9mms high -active cooled with a 50mm fan-)
    - Changed coolant to EK-Ekoolant Blue UV matching RAM's one
    - Fixed radiator and added pressure with white foam and foam rubber to minimize vibrations.
    - Added a 5-Fan controller (they're controlling the 4 push->pull fan plus from rad the 60mm that active cools the pump placed under the rad)
    - Improved a lot cable management, inside and outside.

    The Beast :D

    Temps so far:
    - CPU idling from 23ºC to 28ºC
    - CPU crunching (WCG just CPU) from 39ºC to 42ºC
    - GPU idling from 31ºC to 33ºC
    - GPU under Diablo III (1920x1080) all on max settings after 30 min from 45ºC to 47ºC

    :toast:

    PS: I should do a worklog compiling all my posts in this thread :laugh:

    That's an awesome setup! You did a great job modding that case! :respect:

    What are those "G5s" at the bottom of the case?

    Thanks man! Maybe great job is too much for me since as always is a never-ending improve work ... but sincerely, modesty apart, i think i did a good job and i love the way it likes now since i very first placed components into it! So thanks again :toast:

    Those "G5s" plates are from the original heatsinks from the G5 as you can see here:

    [​IMG]

    They are a thin aluminum plate that can be removed easily from the top of the heatsink, right now i'm using them to cover the hard disks (in case of accidental leak :eek:) and providing more dissipation, cool thing is also beautifying bottom of the case :laugh:

    I used also the double ones from another model to make a "decoration" for the top part as you can see in this picture (it's from the previous update)

    I will be doing more pics tomorrow since now is a lil bit late (4:40am) to move the tower and maybe starting a worklog, can be interesting for future upgrades :pimp:

    the walls are actually some what purplish pink, the original owners of the house didn't know how to paint :laugh:


    Trying not to double post :cool:

    got the 570 back up and running for testing and after disassembling the thing cleaning it reapplying some antec formula 7 re-soldering a cap back on and reassembling a loop, i think i might just keep it the way it is and slap a nice quiet blow down air cooler on the cpu.

    the quiet factor on the build is far exceeding my expectations for the kind of power that's in it right now. the only thing i can hear is the pump and i have to have my ear on the front of the case to even hear it buzzing.

    i used a PPCS 5.25 hard drive mount to mount the silent box for the pump so not only is it covered in foam from all sides to help deaden the noise but its also isolated from the case via huge rubber "wheels", it worked out quite nicely

    Here's my system, a bog standard Raidmax Smilodon, not the best case (it has no wire management), but meh, I found it by a dumpster.
