    To view this case mod, go here.

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

    Specs:
    AMD Athlon64 X2 AM2 5200+ @ 2821MHZ
    nVidia geForce 8800GTS @ 600mhz/900mhz
    ECS KN3 SLI2 mobo Nvidia nForce 590 SLI
    2x 1gb OCZ SLi Ready
    Apevia Iceberg 680w PSU
    1 400gb Western Digital hdd
    2 500gig Maxtor hdd
    all nicely packed in Coolermaster Centurion

    Mods:
    Replaced Blue Orb with ASUS Silent Knight CPU cooler, Thermaltake north bridge cooler, some random fan speed controller i took from a buddy. Also replaced flat IDE with Round.

    For some reason I am unable to edit my first entry so here it is again.
    This is pretty much the same system. I replaced the blue orb cuz one of the holes in the mounting bracket was stripped, also added northbridge cooler and cleaned up the wires a bit more.

    7/10 from me.

    Not keen on the green, the chassis and it's slightly too bright for me. Well done on the 10/10's though!

    I do however like your OC and how tidy you've got it. Just the aesthetics that brings it down for me, still - 'outstanding' stuff!

    Yeah it's good, but it's just not to my tastes. Not keen on the case. At least it's black!

    I'm not insulting the specification/components. I'm just stating I dislike the green fan and the chassis. The overall aesthetics of the thing. I would love to have that specification, especially with that OC on the CPU. Good stuff!

    We all have our own taste, and that's why we all can vote.

    Thanks guys
    I really tryed my best and took my time (few hrs) working on the wire management. Right now im pretty satisfied with what i have.

    The CPU cooler is ASUS Silent Knight, it runs about $65-$70 on Newegg.com but I bought mine at Frys for $65. Keeping my CPU @ 28C idle and 34C loading. I tryed the big Zalmen one and I didnt like how it looked mounted on an AMD also this one just feels a bit more solid.

    You should state all of your comps specs, including case, psu, overclock etc.

    Point the Silent Night exhaust out of your case?

    I have the Silent Night in my case but I mounted it horizontally so that it "exhausts" to the left, out of the case. Did you not have room to do this or were you going more for the esthetics of the vertical orientation?

    I have a AM2 socket so the mounting holes are rectangular so it only allowed me to mount it vertically =/.

    I used Rust-Oleum gloss protective enamel. Its kinda tricky since its a gloss finish. Just gotta do one even coat and thats it. If you go over some parts more then others you get a weird grainy texture. I didnt bother using a clear coat over it just got some black turtle wax and polished it up. Almost gives it a black mirror look.
