Didn't I promise piccies?

Memory


Other parts, Motherboard, CPU, H/S, PSU, GPU, Optical, SSD


First time I saw this. A fabric bag over the PSU? Used to plastic.


Side view of case


Inside left view:


Blue is always cool...


The macho big fan up there.


When all said and done


I still have to work on it. See if I can flip that PSU over. Screw holes didn't line up right. I just said wth with it. also move those cables behind the case.

OK, I flipped around the PSU. Found out that I wasn't positioning it right.
Also rerouted the PSU cables. Look a lot better IMO.
I'll tackle the SATA and front ports after I get the other HDD in. (in the case)



I really like the case. Kudos to Pro2A! The right panel can hold a heck lot of cords!

Indeed, MUCH better wiring job.

Pull that 6 pin power cord down a little so it's coming out from behind the tray flush with the card and not sloping down to get to the card.
Sata cables, yeah just fold them up a little more, maybe tuck the slack behind the tray as well. Overall looking good!

It's missing the one side... and the yellow on the PSU kind of clashes with the..... oh never mind

I think you mentioned it, twice on here, 100 times on IM.

Yeah, my flashlight on the left looks wrong, too. :P

But, yeah, it was fun, finally harnessing down the cables.

Looks much better!
Still a few loose cables down the bottom that could be ziptied together (the front panel and USB cable cables), and pushing in wires coming out of the PSU a little more wouldn't hurt, but other than that it's a bang up job. I'd give it an 8.2 now, and when you fix up those bottom cables an 8.7. If you do the PSU as well, that's a 9.0

great effort!
