Note the customised reset button (a.k.a hammer) and extra venting capability! This is one hardcore MoFo :lol:

Don't be decieved by looks though, it's not a bad machine, just needs a beating sometimes....

Whose butt is that? Doesn't look big enough to carry full size case, maybe an htpc would squeeze between the cheeks, but airflow might be a problem!

I think what I like best about my set up is two things:

1.) I installed a 23" florescent kitchen light under the desk over the keyboard tray. It makes viewing the keyboard MUCH easier! I use it a lot playing games at night in the dark.

2.) A gaming rig would never survive in a hutch like mine due to lack of ventilation and heat. SOLOUTION: I drilled a 120mm hole in the back of the desk and installed a 120mm LED fan. I installed a PCI power bracket on my PC which transfers power from inside the case to outside of the case to power the fan. If I ever see the LEDs go off on the fan I know it got disconnected from the computer. However that almost never happens. Only occurred 1 time with in a year's time. See picture below. The computer cabinet is now only a few degrees warmer than the outside air. It is a very minor difference like 2/3 degrees F. My computer would never survive with out it. Cost: PCI Power bracket $9, Cooler Master LED fan $4.50 (2 for $9 on newegg.com)

I just now rebooted my computer and checked the system temp in the Bios:
CPU: 39c/102f
System: 37c/98f

Dang. You got me beat.

NICE machine. I like the water cooling. You got that set up well. I love the cable management. I noticed you got 3 zip ties on that cross bar at the top of the case I assume funneling cables across it. Never tried that before. Are those data or power cables you got crossing over that bar or both?

Is that a modular power supply you got?

my power supply is corsair 520W. i popped it open and replaced the stock fan with a thermaltake thunderblade blue led fan. when i got the case and power supply i built the whole system and then cut the cables and shortened or lengthened them so that they're as hidden as possible (then soldered them and used black heat shrink tubing to keep the exposed leads from shorting each other out). the 3 zip ties you see on the bar actually keep the power cable for my thermaltake video card power supply hidden (i'm getting rid of it cuz it cant handle my video card).

my whole water cooling loop actually didnt cost me that much. i got my cpu waterblock (Alphacool nexxxos xp) and my radiator (primochill dual 120mm) on clearance from moddersmart.com (lucky i guess). my gpu waterblock is a cooler master glacier 600 that i got new in box off ebay for way below retail. the pump is just a regular thermaltake pump and the reservoir is a swiftech mini-res from frozen cpu. tubing, fittings and clamps are from home depot ;p . moral of the story...shop around.

the pics are recent, but since i've taken them i actually painted the front aluminum "X" and the top of the case with chalkboard spray so i can write notes and stuff on the case. (i get bored). i also put the radiator inside the case upside down so it fits (barely) and it also makes the case easier to carry. if i find my camera i'll take more pics.

I'll get mine up here later this week. I've been wanting to show it off for a while, did a bit of cleaning up and the like. Hopefully the rest of you will enjoy it as much as I enjoy seeing others' setups.

I'm just waiting for Soldier to show up with his green machine...

Here's my rig I just built a couple months ago. Pictures are from a couple days after building it and since then I've gone back in there and fixed my shoddy cable management...I was just lazy at the time. Not planning on OC'ing for a little bit so I stuck with the stock HSF on my E8400 for now. Now that the excuses are out of the way, on to the pictures...

Ramen!

I LOVE your case. I have never seen that case in person but I am sure the pictures do not do it justice. I sure that mesh front looks a whole lot better in person than it does on camera. What type of system temps do you get with that case?

You look like you got some great components in it. E8400. What kind of card do you got in there? 29XX or a 38XX series?

I love your case selection. How do you like it? That only has one 80nm fan in the front right? Or is that 120mm?

I am glad you posted your picture. I think I may use your case in a future build here in the near future for a friend of mine. It has a really nice clean look to it. You must be pretty excited.

What are your specs?

I've used the case for an old high school teacher of mine, and he loves it. I'm not a fan of the 80mm fan up front (no pun intended), but it does the job. Keeps things cool enough, and he hasn't called to complain about it. Installation went pretty smoothly, as well. For the price, it's a really good buy.
