Mods:
It was a cheap and ugly dual Pentium2 Sever ATX case from TARGET(an unknown brand). I was slowly doing various mods, see the pics. I just don't have pics of the unmoded case. The first pic has some basic mods: made a side door(was a whole piece previously), PSU moved to top and placed a 80mm fan to close the hole where the PSU was previously, added wheels, painted the case black(was white), changed the 5.25" opening masks with masks from another nice case. The last mod was adding an extension to the case for a home-made CPU water cooling. Details here.

I don't want to buy a new case for this rig. I have 3 other systems with nice cases. I want to mod this over 10 years old case. I also didn't wanted to buy a watter cooling, but I made it by my self. I agree about the cable management. I'll do something when I have more time.

what exactly is it your water cooling?

and why wouldn't you buy the parts? If you hunt around you can find used parts for next to nothing.

250x150x60mm rad from a car, custom made Cu water block, aquarium pump, custom made reservoir from Plexiglas, custom made water flow indicator from Plexiglas, 2x120mm 2100rpm fans.

Where I live, you can't find any parts. Also, I wanted to make a WC from non-PC WC parts. It was difficult, but so much fun. Soon I'll make a block for g92, I'll add another rad and I'll make two WC cycles(one for the CPU and one for the GPU). :)
