    Yeah I know! For the past three build I haven't changed cases and I felt like it was time. At first it was a really bold design to me and I was not terribly sure that I liked it :bleh:. A couple of days ago, I went to my local brick and mortar and there was one on display and lets just say that changed my mind :eek::cool:. I really like the industrial look of it but I definitely realize that it isn't everyone's cup of tea.

    I guess you have to see it to believe it. :p


    Anyway, I've ordered myself an MSI GTX570 Twin Frozr II and a Corsair AX750. My 5870 Vapor X and Antec 650 will go into rebuilding my sisters computer (lost it in floods) because the 570 is better with [email protected]

    Well that's the thing that especially sucks... We're on a hill too, but her computer had been dropped into our computer repair shop as we left for a 1 week holiday. The repair shop went under, up to the roof, so yeah.

    Okay, when the case comes with 11 wires of it own that all have to be routed past the visible spot (upper right hand corner) it's kind of hard. The only other ones visible are the ones to the sidepanel fan (shown) and to the 580.... >.>

    Edit: I also just realized, but you try wiring 5 SATA/1 optical drives in a midtower and tell me how that goes >_>;;

    And this is what's powering the NECs at the moment......

    Phenom II X2 BE, Unlocked to X4 [email protected]

    ECS A880GM-AD3, 4 Gig of Corsair 1333

    HIS HD5770, DVI to VGA dongle due in tomorrow.

    Corsair 32gig SSD and X2 Seagate 7200.10 in RAID 0

    I have a card reader coming in tomorrow as well, and am modifying a cheap LCD front panel fan control/temp reader mostly to read temps on the unlocked CPU and North Bridge....... Motherboard isn't supposed to handle more than 95watt CPU. Oh Well! We'll see about that......


    Not really into windowed cases and lighted fans, but what the He!!, I figured I'd build at least one. :D All the fans are UV LED, added the LEDs myself, modded the LEDs in the 120mm side fan... they were blue. I even lit up the North Bridge cooler fan that I added. Case has graphite fiber overlay on the front and is metallic "carbon black" auto paint. I added the side window and changed/enlarged the fans. (it was an old case, circa 2002) It's not done yet, but must admit it looks cool at night..... 'cept if you stare at the LEDs you will go blind. :w00t: :lol:

    I'm actually a guitar guy, but use the keys for ambient background stuff. There's a set of digital drums off to the side as well. :cool:

    Most of my guitars I built myself, I used to teach guitar building at Roberto Venn in Phoenix AZ..... They are one off designs built from raw wood. I've also got a few heavily modified guitars and basses that started as factory instruments.

    Ambient psychedelic rock and White-Boy Blues....... I write all my own music too.... can't deal with learning other guys songs. If that description sounds confusing think "Trower-esq, Hendrix-esq...... but I'm not those guys" kinda stuff.

    Chrome Crow

    Mystical Blue


    Of course MySpace sucks, not the best recordings and the MP3 compression bites, but, Yeah!

    Heh, not bad at all (by that, I mean, damn good job!) :) I'd love a download if I could do so (or I could always rip it with less than legal means... xD).

    And gotta admit, you have to be pretty damned good to do this all yourself, mate o_O hats off to ya.
