That's a nice build!:) Are you raiding those WD 500's?
thanks, yup those are both in raid, i got another IDE 320GB hiding in the HDD bay (lying on top of the DVD drive :roll: )

any tips for tidying up, the cable management is a little tight in this case?

If you cant tuck those fan wires behind the drive bays, you could sleeve them black to make them blend in to the back round. You should able to tuck that ide cable behind the bays considering IDE's are flat and quit flexible.;) I would need a shot of the inside without the side panel on and some better lighting to give you some good tips for cable management.


@EvolvA

I haven't forgot'in about you Evo, I have some good idea's to tidy up your case as well, but I have to go to work today so I will post them hopefully tomorrow.:)

The Apollo build is finished! I built this rig for a client and he wanted a green themed Nzxt Apollo. He is 15 and his parents bought him a piece of crap Dell only a year ago and since he is a huge rpg gamer the dell couldn't really handle what he plays. I recommended most of these parts according to their budget and it resulting in a massive upgrade from what he had before. This kid was so stoked:toast: So here it is, tell me what ya think?



specs:
Nzxt Apollo case
Gigabyte EP45-UD3
BFG GTX 275 896Mb
Intel Core2duo @2.5Ghz
Crucial 3Gb ddr2 800mhz
WD Caviar Blue 640Gb hdd
Window 7 Home Prem. 64bit
Antec Truepower 750w psu

I started be modding the structure of the case be cutting out the front and rear fan grills. ( you can see where I screwed up the back cut.:eek:)








I cut a section out of the lip on the back for the cable management, the lip would make it impossible to close the panel. Also cut a square hole for the psu cables to enter the backside of the case.





Next I cut a bottom hole for an intake fan to shoot cool air up into the cards intake.

Added a dust filter





Well since he wanted a "green" theme I had to get rid of those blue leds that come in the front bezel of the case, so I soldered in 3 green leds.






c/m



Final build!:toast:





Take a look inside............

Good work! Looks like you've really improved that case's airflow and noise with those mods. As with your other build I've seen you got nice cable management going on and the front panel looks real nice with the green LED's. Your client certainly has reason to be stoked and not just because of the big hardware upgrade. Once more, good work! :D

This was a brand new build so there aren't any before temps and I can't remember what the current temps are, sorry. I could find out later this week though.:)

@ KieX

Thank you:)...and yeah, this case didn't really provide any c/m or airflow so I had to mod it to make up for that.

woa, that is impresive. I've never liked the Apollo, but you've done a great job, specially with the cable management mod, given this case has absolutely no cm features, congratulations t77snapshot!!

Looks like an original Cylon. Wouldn't want one of those staring at me - from on my desk or (perhaps worse) - under it.

Not much available airflow in that case:eek:, but it looks pretty sweet!;)
Dont really matter - only got a AMD64 FX-55 & a X850XT in it anyway - Did have an Audigy 2 ZS but sold that to my dad

Ok, so I finally finished the last parts of cutting into my case. First I cut out the back fan gill for improved airflow and noise. I also added some new stuff and gave Freeman's Box a nice makeover.:)




Next I cut out the bottom hole so I could flip the psu (I've been wanting to do this for a long time!).


Do you see the face?;)


I installed an Aerocool Touch 2000 to keep the noise down while my women is home because she is always nagging about the computer being to loud:p, then crank them up for gaming and benching.



I added another GTX 285 :toast: and cleaned up my cable management. So what you do ya guys think?

Oh my.... I really adore your tempest, it's so sexy


I did the same for the front fans, and it was quite an improvement...

again, congratulations for such a sexy setup

ps: love your razer keyboard, I bought a razer imperator mouse myself, I'll post some photos when I do the last mod on my tempest, might be tomorrow...
Yea I cut the front grills out too, but I used tin snips so they don't look as pretty.

Awesome! Did you spend more time cleaning up the cables?

Wow nice mod! Evolva:rockout:

That's a great idea for your cable management and I like the red, it works well with your theme. Now you gotta get rid of that green cpu fan eww:laugh: keep it all red/black! Now that you have the cover on, it gives you more options for hiding the cables. Ok so I was thinking, maybe run your sata cables straight down (to the bottom of the mobo, behind the red panel and then direct them to the right (bypass that hole all together). Also run your front panel wires behind the red panel from the bottom and up to the board. That alone should make it look not so cluttery in that partiular area of the case.:) I hope that all made sense to you.

it makes perfect sense, and you're right about the green fan, but it's so damn good I don't want to get rid of it (I might paint the blades red). and about the sata cables, I'll do exactly what you've said next weekend :), thanks a lot for the tips

My latest upgrade....

I finally installed my H50, ran into some small issues but no biggie. I really wanted to mount it to the top and have one of the 140mm fans pulling and a 120mm pushing, but I lost my adapter:ohwell: So I just mounted it the traditional way. Everything looks good accept for that 3pin pump cable...I am going to connect it straight to the psu later.

Ok on to the pics and temps---
