Default A Few Pics Of My New build

Thought I would share a couple pics to show my appreciation to all of you that talked me into building, and also to all that helped answer my questions.

Thanks again.

I'm new to this pc building thing ....so be gentle on my wire management skills....lol

I really do like my case Nukem.

Plus I found a crossflow fan for it from the garage sale items at coolerguys.com. It sucks air in from the right side of the case {fan is about 12" long} and blows it across the whole mobo. It also comes with 1 120mm front intake....1 120mm rear exhaust....and an 80mm blow hole for the top. When you touch the aluminum panels on both sides of the case, they are actually cold!

It also has a place to install a 2nd power supply.

Comes with wheels if you want to put them on....its HEAVY!

sweet system

I've taken myn to 2 lan parties so far and it is HEAVY, but lots of room to expand and a slot at the bottom for a radiator for watercooling.

OMG......I can't imagine taking that case to a lan party....lol

You are quite the man to carry that thing out of the house!

You are right.....lots of room to expand, that is way I chose it.

Hey, we have very similar systems darkop16. :-)

yeah except your graphics card is way better then myn .

Trust me, I hate lugging that case around, but i couldn't afford two systems (main and lan rig) this year so i went for a bigger case. I don't go to many lan parties anyways.

I do plan on making a lan rig next summer, but until then, im stuck with carrying my case. The really bad thing is all my friends host lan parties in their UPSTAIRS bonus rooms
