To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
P8Z77-M Pro
2500K @ 4.5ghz
4x4gb G.Skill 2133mhz
Noctua NH-U12
Asus GTX570 DCII
Agility 2 240gb
Antec TPQ-1200-OC
Fractal Define mini

Mods:
Modded the PSU so i dont have too much cabling anymore. The "power cache" on the cables are the biggest issue since they dont fit very well behind the Define Mini. I own this PSU since a few years now and it served me very well so i dont want to sold it for no reason. ++ its the OC edition.

I also removed all the HDD cage since in only run my Agility 2 240gb and everything else is on my HTPC. Top cage is bolted but had to remove rivet for the bottom cage, sadly Fractal dont "allow" you to remove the bottom one right out of the box.

The 5 last pics are the finnished proct as for now. Im in the process of finding a new GPU or 2, maybe some GTX670s.

Ive been WCing for 5 years now and its my first 100% air cooled rig since then. The temptation to go back top water is pushing hard.

Voted 8/10 - Modded something, perhaps one day you will mod more on it?
(Anything modified from it's orginial factory build is considered a mod in my eyes).

And to all the "haters", um.. Where are the cases you modded??

Nice, clean build.

I shall like to know what you know how to make
Given that you say that this modding is bad give we a link to show ourselves of what you are capable
But I think that you do not know how to make better
Are you just voucher to give of bad mark
Bye the flashgordon in 2 bullets LOL

Otherwise I vote for 9/10 because I find this very clean PC

Yes im from quebec.

I posted a few of my last mod/rig i had. I swap hardware every 1 or 2 months so its hard to keep posting EVERY rig i had and modded ...

I also had a 3930K on this testbed but i never made it "clean enough" to really worth posting.
