    Exorcising my eMachines rig!!

    That is a nice case, I like the way the front doors open. Not sure about the placement of the PWR and RST buttons though. Would imagin reaching to the top of the case may become a chore over time. Still very nie design though and cant argue for the money.

    Antec Solo modding ideas??

    Yeah I would get the inside of the case painted and add some form of lighting, maybe change the PLED to green and the rear case fan to green. My project log may be of use to you as I started with a very similar antec case, you can find it Here

    @ InnocentCriminal - Thanks dude, I am trying to think of something to do with the front of the case that fits the overall look, as I agree with you - it needs changing. @ KennyT772 - Hard to tell from the pictures but the cathode itself doesnt support any weight. The stand 'legs' clip into...

    Well in my OP I outlined the goals for this project. I am happy to say one of them has been achived. (2) To see an improvement to my current best 3dMark06 score solely buy increased overclocking as a result of better cooling. Although the case is not fully finshed yet and I am still...
