Mods:
I didn't mess with the case too much as the cable management is practically spoon fed to you. I did work on the cooling a bit by making some minor changes. the case gets all of its' air from the bottom through a dust filter. I helped it get more air by replacing the solid pci backplates with vented ones from an antec 1200. I also added a high rpm 120mm fan to the far bottom of the case above the dust filter to get more air inside. I made up a ram cooler of 40mm fans and an antec 5.25 faceplate cover(not picture here) to aid in the memory cooling. I also added a rubber gasket cut from 2mm rubber sheets between the radiator and the fans on both the top and bottom to minimize noise and prevent air from escaping.

As far as overclocking and voltages. I run my 965c3 at 4.01Ghz all day at 1.525v about 1.49 under load due to the insane vdroop of the m4a79t deluxe board. My memory is stock 1600mhz 9,9,9,24, at 1.55, and i run it at 9,9,9,22,1t at 1.76v at 1736Mhz. My video card goes from 875/1300 stock to 975/1300 Mhz under stock volts. It takes roughly 1.26v to get it to 1000/1300, and 1.35v to get it to 1050/1300. The highest stable clock i was able to achieve was at 1.4v 1115/1325. The temps are rediculous and due to some unknown bottleneck the performance tapered off at about 1050/1300. I hope you like my computer and thanx for looking. Please Don't be a douche and vote one with no comment, i put these up here for feedback and if you're only feedback is a lousy one... Go fuck yourself, kthanxbye!!!

This is true, i am a hardcore dragonlance fan, and so i 'm trying to have a color for each of the dragons. It leads to a hardy mix of colors, but i need them all there to complete the idea.. it may not appeal to others, but solid blue/red/green cases, really annoy me.

nice

very nice but you may want a better Motherboard,for your set up i think the Board is giving you the Bottle Neck,and dose your Motherboard's Bios have a CPU/NB set up,if you do turn your clock down .5 and up the CPU/NB from AUTO to 2600 or 2800 it kills the Bottle NECK and you well see what i mean well post my Computer soon for you to see k
