    New case, Antec P180. I haven't put much effort into cable management here, but temps don't really suck (40 degrees CPU doing not much and 55 GPU, with all Antec Tricool fans on low speed), but I'll solve the cable management whenever I get around to finding a new heatsink, the stock heatsink's design makes it hard to setup the fans to go front intake, rear output, I actually have to do the opposite :L.

    And yes, I do have a ST-412 and a 5.25" floppy in here, they work great for holding my CD drive in place when I'm at a loss for drive rails.

    I believe I have some drive rails for your case if interested...
    I still have a ANTEC Gunmetal P182 still (not being used though).

    I've noticed a couple people have them, although my current problem is I don't have a way of paying anyone at the moment as a class project is requiring most of my buy-random-crap money, and this ST-412 drive is holding up pretty well despite the fact that it holds a whopping 10 MB or so.

    Being as you mentioned retro, and I keep this on my desk for making disk images...

    An IBM XT with a Turbo 286 upgrade in it (far left card). Still works, and can IRC fairly well.

    Proof of it working (and that the upgrade was worth it):

    A really, really, old computer. From where we are now backwards:

    Core i -> Core Duo -> Pentium 4 -> Pentium 3 -> Pentium 2 -> Pentium -> 486 -> 386 -> 286

    Wow, old...no. Ancient? - more like it. ;) that's like an artefact from another space-time continium :D. I have no sympathy for those though, recycle and go for the new. :)

    oh boy :p a PC thats been around longer then me in terms of age.

    When I was about 5 my dad bought a IBM PS/2 setup home with a Pentium SX-II and about 4 or 8Megs of ram and a 100Mb hard drive running windows 3.1.

    And thats the machine which i slowly built up my craft as a tech as It was the family PC all the way until 98' where dad payed about $4557 for a Pentium 3 setup which was all the rage back then.

    I kept the old IBM and a few years back i actually got it running again, but It couldnt do much with it anyway so i guess i threw it in the dumpster.

    Kinda regret it a little but It wasnt any good to anyone. It had no math co-processor so installing WIndows 98 was impossible.

    It just wasnt worth keeping around except for nostagia

    You would be surprised at the value of the old PCs and XTs, anywhere from $50-$300 depending on what you have for it in terms of manuals, boxes and disks, accessories, etc. Basically, anything before a Pentium that works can catch a few bucks (as odd as it sounds).

    Had to gut the 800D to fit these RX360's. The RX120 just barely fit, in fact there are no screws holding it in place. It's sandwiched in between the RX360 and the top of the PCI bay.

    A little OTT for a 3770k and tri-fired 7950s. what are you cooling? Japan's nuclear power station?

    If you follow the youtube channel : Singularity Comptuers

    http://www.youtube.com/feed/UCqChlb8y4cQ0jAFaNFPQLqA

    When he mention what temps he get with all that cooling power is ridicolous...

    He get the same temps as you can have with single 3x120mm radiators CPU/GPU loop, especially on graphics card 40 to 45 degress on gaming.

    You can achieve those temps with a 120mm radiator without problem on GPU's. ( see ASUS ARES)

    Same story with CPU's he get usually just 57 degrees on load stock with 4x120mm/2x120mm/1x120mm plus 2 meters long reservoirs and crazy powerfull high pressure pumps often two of them.

    Overkill overkill :rockout::rockout:

    Bought a Titan for some reason i'm not sure, i just couldn't resist anymore.

    This is a mess just now, i had to use some spare random white tubing to make a big ugly line past the gpu and get straight to the rad until i get a block for the gpu.

    Once i get a nice block then it will be back to normal -

    I'm also going to put some white acrylic over the side of the drive bays to make it look cleaner.

    Look at what arrived from Taiwan from the Gigabyte-TPU contest! Only took 4 days to get here too.
