Lots of creative wiring was done, extra cooling all over, fans modded to 5/7V or temp controlled.

Request a benchmark, and I'll edit it in later.

No DVD player is a requirement, or the PSU overheats. Its connected via gigabit to my storage machine btw, which has a few terabytes of anime on it :)
it has the US B one if needed, but the 40" TV also has an Xbox connected that handles the DVD's fine... so it doesn't hurt.

i was looking for a 2 bay mesh as has been said, the problem is it lines up with the PSU's 80mm fan, so any IDE cables totally blocks the PSU fan.

The case was good once... but it failed. got the crap scratchd out of it in the boot of my car :p

if anyone knows of something worth putting in there, i'd go for it :) atm the system runs quite well (28c idle, 56C load CPU - dont know GPU yet) so anything that helps the looks without killing the cooling, is a go


(DVD burners are an issue, as the PSU power lead for the ATX connector blocks the molex power to the drives. i need to find a shorter drive, or a 90 degree power cable)

Isn't this case a TJ0B not 8?

I won't vote as I don't see any point - this case has so much potential and you've made it look horrible. At least you tried to do some cable management, but still. Why you posted that I don't know.

Such a wonderful case, just you've made it so ugly. Still, excellent OC and all that.

update!
a fwe comments: i've made it look less horrible. i was moving house, so it took longer than expected to find the 'missing' parts (and the camera)

Innocent: sure its a TJ0B? i swear its the 08 model. it was posted because it wouldnt fit in my sig :p so i needed a link - and the gallery was convenient. its also a lot of modded hardware in a very tiny case (cooling, OC'd, fan modded PSU) and one hell of a lan rig. fair point on the ugly, after so many comments i fixed that.

Two new pics are up - one showing its real home (with the TV, wii and xbox) and the other a closeup of the now less fugly front :p

the OCZ PSU isnt the problem for me, the 2x80mm fans are. damn thing gets no air.

I built a variant of this for a friend, with a nice Q6600 G0 in it at 3Ghz :) if you can make the hardware fit, the 2x120 setup really cools these cases well.

No, my mistake. It is a TJ08 the B suffix is to say that's black. Makes sense really doesn't it. Have you made anymore improvements to it such as stealthing the front drive bays? ;) Hint Hint!
