I hope you get rid of it soon . With a bulky cooler will look better
Anw nice rig nice stuff
A minor change. The Foxconn ELA does not recognize my Highpoint RocketRAID 2640X4 so I have replaced it with the venerable GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P which I also have. That Foxconn is $75 for a reason but it is a good board if you just want something that works that has a great feature set. It overclocks, but that is not anywhere as easy as the Gigabyte. I have no idea why the ELA would not function with the raid controller. Just thought that this info may help someone who might consider that board. And now for the new pic of my PC ATM.
I managed to get a quick picture of the board, but it's real blurry:
Sorry for bad pictures, pretty limited to what angles I can take photos from on the desk lol
that last picture is pretty cool
Cable management with a mATX board in a large case is a PITA! I'm not doing any cable management until I find the right ATX board.
looks good man
Hey! No posting here without showing off your new pr0n!
Hey man it looks great. Love the cable management and everything
just an idea though. Why don't you try making a panel that covers from the PSU support bracket to the top of the case. This way the PSU and wires are all hidden. You would only see from the mobo compartment down. You can put like a logo on it after or something
I am actually in the process of doing just that!
I've a side panel from an old HP desktop that I'm going to be sliding into an L shape to cover the PSU area and the 5.25 area
Thing is the side panel is way to well made ( surprisingly) for my dremel to cut, I left the dremel on one point as a tester and it took 5 minutes just to cut in 1 point!
Great minds think alike eh
I'm going to upgrade to sata dvd drive aswell to get rid of the hideous IDE cables.
Anymore suggestions TPU after all, I can only improve things with your help
By the by, anyone like the ghetto way of holding up the fan in the middle? the threads had gone on that area of the rad XD
what do you mean not much room... the case is huge.. and has more holes for cable management that the cm690 could ever hope for...
on a side note, i didn't mean for it to be mean, more like sarcastic, i'm very sorry don did not mean to bash it, it's still a nice case, i'm just in love with my obsidian 800d
Great minds DO think alike. I can't wait to see how that comes along, should give the rig a great look since all the cables are going to be hidden and stuff. Once you upgrade to a SATA drive and remove that IDE cable it'll improve things a lot too!
The Obsidian is something else bro
lol thanx CP, it is an incredible case to work with.. more changes are yet to come btw, i have some new 140mm fans on the way to add in.. and if uncle sam is good to me this taxmas season i may grab a 5870 or 2
What 140's you buy? I'll be doing some sleeving and all so I'm really looking forward to it
New pics coming sooooooon...

Just got a gift of a GTX260 from Caliga4221 at OverClock and popped it in my Daughter's PC. In case you may not have seen the worklog it is Here . I have some older vids of the case on YouTube but now I have an HD cam so the following vids are a lot crisper.
While I had the lil beast open today to change out the cards I took a these vids and pics.
Here are some pics
Still looks pretty fresh after all those months.
Now it's got a honking huge card in it
Looks good CD! Like the pink on it.
