i dont think he can... due to the memory location
I can't because this board has a different layout so i can not change the cooler's direction.
But i don't have any heat problems.
And for the dust. I allready ordered 2 mesh fan filters. because the dust bugs got me.lol

Techniks this is a very stylish case. Clean, polished and the lighting is subtle compared to some more garish designs. The purple was a good choice, again like what you've done with the HSF. 9/10

I used Duplicolor paint. Very good an you can buy it almost everywhere. Remember to buy a primer from the same brand to.
For the mesh fan filters i bought them here: http://stores.ebay.com/Techgirls-Treasures.
Very cheap and excellent seller.

Just visited the PNY's 900 page. For once, I ever wanted a Antec 900 case, and almost bought 4x Antec Tri-cool Red Leds, in accordance to make my new PCI-E rig based on the Sapphire Pure ADV-RD580AM2 Mobo, and the X1950XTX in CF, along with a 6000+.. But that hope never came.. Cause I kept spending on my current rig. +_= But maybe.. Just maybe..

This is a really sweet job! I'm planning on the same concept on a Stacker STC-T01, there's going to be three 120mm fans on the front though, not one. I do have a question though, how did you fit the aluminum afterwards? do you have any pictures of that?

Coolermaster Drive Cover

Hey that cooler master CD drive cover you have on there did it just screw into place? I am curious because i am wanting to do the same thing with that, but need to know before i do it all because I'm having my brother put a custom paint job on it all and will have to paint the drive cover also.

Your welcome m8! That is, without a doubt, one of the nicest PCs Ive ever seen! Is the rest of your room still funky/retro (coz that looked awesome too!)

PS: what speed is your Foxconn 8800GTS running at? Ive got a great overclocked BIOS for it here (via windows flash) if you want it (ive got them for the 320mb, 640mb & GTX Foxconn versions ;) )

Thanks man. I appreciate that.
I got the Asus GTS 640 instead. They send me the wrong card. But i can't complain this card
rocks. Room is still the same basically.
Waiting for the prices to drop on the c2d's and score me a nice one.

Cool, I have the 'High Performance BIOS' for the ASUS 8800GTS 640mb aswell if you want it m8 (pm me your email address ;)

Got idea in waiting for the c2d's to come down in price again. YOuw ill be able to pick up a sweet Quad Core pretty cheap ;) Sadly, you will never go back to AMD then LOL :)

Im loving my new rig btw, its so fast! All I need is a tasty 8800 and I will be happy :)



EDIT: heres a link to the BIOS you need m8: http://putstuff.putfile.com/92190/5623958

Ive flashed at least 5 various models of 8800's with these performance BIOS' and they work great ;)

How did you fit that fan *into* the drive bays? Is it 120mm? Were there any big mods you had to make to fit it?

Did you use UV cold cathode lights to get the purple effect?

Nice, but here are some more tips to make it look even better!

Nice Rigg,the cooler i find most interesting never seen one like that before i would mod it if i where you take the FAN out a do a purple one in it. Also i would take your PC out of eighother and make the backpanel with a mirror that way you see more and the light reflects a lot better, mod it a little more and you will be a very happy man (i think you are already that)

I love the sytem, hands down a 10 and in the top 5 in this entire gallery. One thing that confuses me is the cpu cooler fans. From the testing I've done with that cooler, it generally works best when the fan is blowing towards the rear exhaust. Plus, the rear exhaust fan shouldn't have a dust filter on it?! I'll say it does look the best in your config, but why?

Nice ideas. Should try them yourself.
Btw i hate mirrors. My rig is not a Christmas tree so it doesn't need the lighting.
The cooler is the Arctic Freezer 64 Pro. It just has a carbon look sticker on it.

When i looked at this post i came out angry. Not so.lol

Why? Could not fit the Arctic any other way on that mobo.
For the dustfilter. I put it on because it cleaning the air that is blowing at the back of my case. So i don't have to dust so often.

Wow. Just wow. The most amazing thing I have seen simply because, I just built this case and the cable management is an absolute mess. Maybe you can give me some tips? My PSU isn't modular - I have the 680W Hiper w/ the nine USB ports (lol). The extra cables really arent a problem for me because I have just tucked them under the bottom hard drive bay rather niceley. My problem is that my MOBO power, IDE power/cable, cpu cable, etc. are running between my mobo and drive bays... and rather poorly at that. I would appreciate any suggestions.. like how you got the inside to look black, and how you see almost NO cables.

11/10!

just posting again after posting early on in the piece - this truly is one of the best mods on TPU. some people go for bling, some add more cooling, some hack holes in a case.

This is one of the few mods that does it all. better cooling, better looks, and actual physical modification of hardware.

Any tips on how to successfully ropute the cables under the mobo? It seems like you would need to elevate the mobo some how - just looking for some help to clean up! Also, can you recommend any good filters? All the ones i have found are cheap and severely cripple my airflow.

set your system up with positive air pressure (more air in than out) and you'll find dust to be a lot less of a problem. ALL filters block airflow.

love it all, but turn that freezer pro 90 degrees to face the right way...it looks as if its pullin the hot air off the vid card
Actually it is blowing air down toward the vid card, which is creating some negative flow since the 200mm fan above it is sucking air up.
