What do you mean by this? I'm really liking this case and routing wires was a breeze...

Might be due to your cables on the PSU, but I find that between the lip of the motherboard tray and the side panel it kinda becomes too tight...

It also becomes a nightmare when you fill all the 3.5in trays with hard drives, get a nice gob of a tangle on one side.

That can be a problem in any case really. All in how you utilize zip ties and if you can get all your drives on one line.

Looks good. I take it this is a look down shot?

Just updated my case a bit.. Added new media card reader, blocked out empty grates with Black Felt so no more of the red cathode light glare in my face, and removed the side 240mm fan an metal grates and replaced with plexi... Also hooked all lights in the case to a push button located in the front bottom of the tower...

Last thing I will be doing is adding a 120mm fan to the bottom mount for another intake since I removed the one on the side...

What do you guys think????

Bottom fans don't make much of a difference. Since practically almost all heat being produced is forced outside the case a ton of intake isn't necessary.

I kinda like the plexy, had me confused when I saw that case with-out the metal mesh... I rather dislike how it protrudes outwards...

Only thing I can say is, the current front intake fan is more than sufficient at mid-full speed for what you have unless you filled the entire drive cage with disks.

Took the heaters out of my case until I can afford to move my PC into the master bedroom and get some sort of portable AC going.



This 7950GT runs cool but it has coil whine :|
