my previous bulid was somewhat "cramped" due to the small case(last pic). not only that but cpu temp was at close to 80c most of the time on load which is a big no-no 4 me. ended buying the v8 which of course i had to change the case cause of the size and so i thought what the hell y dont i go all out!!!Not an enthusiast or a dedicated gamer but i have need for speed lol

Well this is the Case Gallery. There are no rules about the case needed to be modified to be posted in a Case Gallery. He can post his rig if he wants.

Good job on the cable management.

wow, giving my honest opinion..and you lash out at me. still doesnt change the fact that cable management is not a modification.
"giving my honest opinion". im pretty sure most of the people out there who saw your comment would've been like
cause u aint making sense. by the way i know cable managment aint a mod but u can do 100 mods on your case but know matter what that case will just look like sh*t if u cannot tidy up ur cables.

^agree, cable management is more important than mods when it comes too looks. Even a basic OEM rig can look great inside with good management, but when i think of case mods, i think of exterior modifications, pre mods or home built case.

now this is a case mod imo. but thats me, as you can see, its cool but cables make it ugly

You argument is flawed as the mod does not sit around open like that. It is about the presentation. If you have a clear window into the system and can see the inside, then cable management is a plus because it adds to the look.....because people can see it.

The Nintendo mod is intended to be closed and you will never see the cables, so their overall appearance is moot.

This is a foolish debate. Is his case modded? No. Does it matter? No. State your opinion and move on.
