This is entirely untrue! this is one of the more respected forums on the interwebz:) There are just a lot of users that just roam the Case Mod Gallery voting and posting nonsense and dont actually interact with the rest of TPU.

I like your case! I consider water cooling and cable management a form of modding and your case looks clean and well thought out! Good job bro 8/10 from me! btw....SICK triple monitor setup :D

Thanks man. I just love the 5760 X 1080 res. Takes a little getting used to all of the realestate. Frame rates are still great...70 to 150 fps!!!(L4D2) Everything maxxed! Thats down from 150 to 300 fps. These gtx285's while not the powerhouses the 400 series are, STILL kick butt!

This is good to know for me because I run two 285's as well! But I have a Samsung 24" monitor. Oooooh that would be so sick to get 2 more of those and have your setup :p

I gave you a 4 myself.... clean up the water lines and take time to mount the pump rez then I'd gladly give you an 8.... Boo me if you want but im just being honest...

Cable management looks great but like I said do something with that hose...

I was originally going to get 2 more 25 inchers and after measuring I found I would NOT have enough room for them or three 24's in the limited space I have....so I settled for the 23"ers, More than enough. Hell if you can fit 'em get 2 more 24's. You will love it!

I'll give you credit on the northbridge waterblock considering its before they started to put the build up of material on the actual chip edges.older ones like that shows that you know how to appy the waterblock component,not for the faint of heart and not very easy to copy.

It's the case gallery. Heavy modding is not a requirement.

Anyway, I didn't vote at all because I'm not a fan of voting. Looks pretty good though. It's clean. And why put up pictures if you're afraid of getting bad ratings?

Thanks for the compliment...I Had a bad day at work and then this c*nts 1 rating just kinda got to me...lol I guess cutting holes in a mobo tray and cutting plastic paneling and mounting it inside to hde cables and painting doesnt count as "modification" to some pri*ks

I voted 8/10 because:

love the black tubing...different than your regular see thru or red tubing. too bad the inside of the case chassis wasn't all black as well. Over all great setup! 8/10
