    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    Coolermaster HAF 932
    Asus Crosshair III Formula AM3
    AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (OC to 3.9GHz)
    8GB (4x2GB) Corsair DDR3/1600mhz
    Kingston SSDNow 64Gb
    Hitachi HDD 2TB (2x1TB) RAID1
    PowerColor HD 5870 1GB DDR5 (x2)

    Mods:
    TBA

    New rig after Nexus MKII...

    CPU cooling has dedicated reservoir/pump and 240mm radiator. The dual 5870's have their own dedicated reservoir/pump and 240mm radiator.

    Love this case, plenty of scope for improvements/tweaks/mods... Will be adding an hinge door mod shortly, plus some custom switches for the cathodes etc.

    Pipes are too long, but will be shortened once I get decent fittings etc.

    why the f''' does someone vote 1?

    if they have a problem with it then write a freakin comment, such things pisses me totally off, but i guess some people are just jealous.

    but great job man! 1 thing though, that case would be looking smexy with some black paint inside, but 8-10 from here

    voted 9/10. I was going to give it an 8 because of the odd video cooling loop, but somebody needs to counteract that idiot 1.

    Thanks for the responses guys!

    RE: video loop... I'm getting some better fittings soon and will be ripping the tubing out so will re-work the layout.

    RE: inside paint job... This is the thing that I'm kicking myself about the most! I really should have taken a step back before jumping in with the build. I guess its another "little" job for the future :)
