Great spec's but that case needs some major wire managment .

Both of you have posted rather useless/unhelpful comments. Zvonjola, what are you on about? The nexus is for silence, I would recommend the nexus over the soprano DX myself!

However, yes I would have to agree with them on the point that the case seriously needs tyding up, but thats from the aesthetic point of view. By the way I would grab a slot cooler which sucks air out of the case and position it above the 8800 instead of using that fan, it would work much better and look far less ghetto :p

I don't know what your talking about here . you say that my post mean nothing ? why ?
When you post your case to be voted on I look for certain things one is wire management and really that case need it bad so your not making any friends here by berating my post .
then saying tidy up your case .
I mean the setup is great yes the case looks fine yes the rest is well just plain and ordinary nothing to it .

i know its a mess, but its really hard to manage cables with this case (the other side dosent open :( ) ill update more when i hook up my I/o panel to the front anf get a better CPU cooler. i might aswell buy a cooler wich is mounted in the DVD drive bay, wich blows air into the GFX fan.

just noticed these are old pics, I've done some cable managin and will upload new pics soon.

actually the extra cooler works well. 8800 cooler sucks air in and blows the air out from the back, so some fresh air on top of the cooler does wonders. the card is idleing at 60C and fan is at 76%, overclock is 650/2000

If you are looking for a good case availible at lapstore cheaper than verkkokauppa.com have a look at the antec p182 gunmetal black. It has a very cable management friendly interior. I fell in love with it..
