Default New Case Setup

Well I had this case sitting around for a few months collecting dust and decided to finally start working on it.

When its done it'll have a full water cooling loop done as it can take a mcr220 perfectly. But for now I'm on air till I get a few more parts.

Here is a teaser.

Interesting setup Curt, as long as it's functional I guess.. I like the way you mounted the hard drives, and you got most obvious used stuff on the mobo clear..

Off topic: Does it looks like you took out 2 keys near your arrow keys on your keyboard..

That is actually how they mount.

There is another bracket to mount 2 more on the other side of the optical drive the same way to allow for a total of 4. But since I'm using the rad bracket it doesn't allow that.

Stuff on motherboard?

The optical is sticking out like that because well.. this PSU is longer than most normal ones and I need to pickup some 90 degree sata cables to allow the optical drive to sit flush.

Will also need to rig up a fan someway to help with the cooling of the hdds as they are both at around 41 right now.

Yes there are two keys but they are a "home" and "end" key sorta and I always bumped them and screwed me up.

I gave up trying to manage my cables in my case... just tucked them away wherever they're not in the way.

I actually wish there way a way to transmit power wirelessly...
