if you could clean the cabling up a bit it would look damn good.

You guys are right, I'm thinking I'll get up early (like 4am) and do it.

Clean cabling and ghetto seem a little oxymoronic to me. If anything I'd fill the flat void at the bottom or just break it up a little with something. Either way the personalization you've done would be a great gift. Goes beyond just buying some parts.

Great job on the case, it has a real 'Vintage' look to it. Tell the young lad the Tap is for a future water cooling setup...

Great mod! Love it.

Ya, he freaked. It was pretty cool, he's never seen anything like it and he was pretty impressed that he could game with the settings so much higher than his old rig.

Nice mod 3 of 7. Who says you can't do anything with an old ugly beige box? Pretty decent rig for a 12 year old....he's lucky.
