I was bored so turned an old rosty HP pavilion 745t case in to a nice home for my i7 rig. When i started i didnt made pics of the begin cause didnt know whats gonna comes out i made it without a plan but i surprised myself in the end lol .I love the new i7 and x58 harwares cause so much power can be placed in to a so tiny place. my only problem was to mount the PSU cause the screwholes are upside down so the psu fan is on the top but stil i geting nice temps MY ROOM TEMP:28-30c,Idel CPU:54c at 2.9ghz, NB:53c, SB:45c MB:35c

WOW! i was doin something like this as we speak but im waiting on the final parts. its going to be a old P4 dell case tho with a 775 setup. This mod is AWESOME! i give a 10/10 for good creativity and modding. The only thing you might wanna do next if figure out some better cooling solutions like maybe a single rad water solution or a highend cooler that might fit in there. :)

here is pics of mine before

I voted 7/10 because you spent your time, money, efford on a small and less ventilation case with a giant and hot GPU inside. However, cable needs some work...maybe use some ziptie and tie them somewhere on a side so more air can get through and cool down that GTX 295.

and thanks for voting 1/10 on my case ;) We all cool. BTW, this is my third case. I actually did some modd. on my P182 and my HAF 932 too. But I gave the cases away since I got this case.

Good Day Now

I voted 9/10 because:

i voted a 9/10 because of how creative you got with such an older case. I did the same to a hp pavilion called The Green Mini. I like the window mods and the paint job. Maybe a lil more on the cable management and more air to cool that gpu. Great work. Please feel free to rate mine
