Yeah, but its still made by thermaltake...

What doors are you talking about? The little things on the front are definitely no worthy of being called a door, doors actually close :P

haha ya i explained in the rate my wire thread why it was so messing.. i was having a cathode problem.. the top one kept falling off.. the stupid stick adhesive on the velcro stopped working

and then.. for some reason, none of my power buttons and stuff were working on the top part... so i just let em hang there until i fix it..

the sata cable for the hdd just can't be helped because its not long enough to go through the back part

and the white wire in the hard drive rack to the left is there because the cathode is there

and very weird... i see my black usb cord.. for my front panel memory card reader is not plugged in.... yet my card reader worked to put those pictures on this afternoon?!

Get some new sata cables :P

Sleeve your front panel crud

And tuck the wiring leading to your cd driver away.

I was dreaming of buying an alienware case off of ebay and then moding it into a lanfestmonstercasewithextramudkips......

but id probably just fail at that...

Hmm, well as i wait untill i have money again i can continue looking for a case... i'll probably go with some kind of cool master.
