I appreciate your feedback, however I thought there was too much silver going on, so I kept the black components in the middle of the case...simulating a black hole....

The wiring is extremely tight, not much room for movement. I will attempt to "clean" it up a bit, as you are not the only one to mention the wiring.

i really like that case. the only thing i dont like is the window, but if i could find one without a window i may actually spend that much on a case. looks very classy. but i do agree that aesthetically, the drives should be silver as well. to each his own, it still is a good looking build!
bf2 is the best game ever made.
as others have said, a little wire management goes a long way.
as far as being overkill...it is, but screw it. thats how we do here at TF.

They do make the same case without the window. They even make a larger version (server case). I was going to buy that one so that I could install 2 GTS', as I couldnt do that in this case. But there would have been a whole lot of wasted space and that means I would have spent more money...LOL!!


This is the server case I was thinking of purchasing:

Here is the same case I purchased without the window:

Battlefield 2 is addicting. However, I feel that I am sorta cheating while playing, as the graphics are so clean and crisp, I am sniping people miles away.

Thanks for the feedback.

most bizarre case/component/usage i have ever seen. 4GB and a GTS for a possible gamer, not to mention that case seems like its trying to be difficult and defy all common pc structure lol.

Never the less, it's a beast by far. And it would be a crime not to game on it. I hope you have fun.
