    NZXT Tempest
    Asus Striker II Extreme
    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 OC'd to 3.2 GHz
    Corsair XMS3 4GB DDR3 2X2GB DDR3-1333

    Dell UltraSharp Widescreen 2707WFP
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 Quad

    Mods:
    Painted case interior black and blue. Drilled holes for cable management (one above the 8 pin ATX on mobo tray, one above optical drive for front panel connectors, and one below the Hard drive cage for future upgrades that may reguire power). All fans were replaced with Yate Loons. Added a blue cold cathode kit.

    This was actually posted once before, but I feel that it looks so much better now, that it deserves a new post. The 8 and 24-pin connectors on the PSU were a little short; remedied with extensions from performance-pcs.com. when the weather gets better here again, I'm going to paint the top 140mm fan grills the same color blue as the interior. 3DMark03: 61954 3DMarks; 2151 CPUMarks 3DMark05: 18267 3DMarks; 17030 CPUMarks 3DMark06: 15979 3DMarks 3DMarkVantage: P11384 3DMarks OpenSourceMark: 27487 OSMarks CINEBENCH R10: CB 1 CPU 3511; CB X CPU 12264; OGL Std 4973

    A very pretty job! I'm a big fan of your cable mgmt as it is time to blow the dust off this early production Tempest sitting here and make something of it.

    I'm assuming your holes were done with a hole saw, is that correct?
