Best thing to do with Antec cases is make you a nice hole on the inside of the hard drive cage so you can route cables backwards and have your drives turned around. Its doable.

How would I go about turning the hard drive around? Last time I tried that the front case fans got in the way.

Move them forward slightly so the cables dont interfere.

Yeah that doesn't work, I'm gonna have to wait till I can get right angle cables for data and power and mod the case to do that.

Huh. I'm assuming you're using all right angle cables for the drives then?

Sorry, been to busy to post anywhere else cause of the holidays. Got this pic from a guy over on another forum and he says hes using generic cables. Another solution is you could hang your drives in the 5.25 bay like i do in my Raidmax Scorpio.

I did mine this weekend in my 900. Used the standard cables from my mobo and psu.

BUT only have 1 screw per side, but its secure.

Still haven't got my pics off my camera though.

Finally got a picture, I somewhat cleaned it up. still gots some stuff do to tho.


-And Thank you Tech-Forums!! without you guys i would probably be posting a picture of a Dell =P.

Here it is:





You can only see one cathode but i have another UV one same size, under the top edge .

And my Cold Cathode lights switch.





-Things i plan on doing-

-Clean up the cables behind the PSU (i think one of the zipties broke)

-Clean Up the bottom back right corner.

-Get some heavier wire and a jerry rig wire harness thing for the fan under the heatsink.(instead of a couple strips of painters tape, haha)

-Get a ODD thats sata. maybe even a BluRay

-I think i am gonna put a intake fan on the bottom.-- I was worried my GPU might fry on the lower PCI slot. But the highest ive seen it is 61c @stock (after several hours of folding) but i still think im gonna add a fan.

Oh and the reason the Heatsink is up and down. not horizontal is because it only goes 2 ways. push air up. or push air down. which doesn't really bother me.

Here's the first pics of my new build.

Sadly my biggest issue is cable length.
