It's just funny to me, for some reason.

Also, the part where you're sharing the bike rack with computer components. Two very different worlds. Nice bikes, by the way.
It's magic! Haha thanks. They're mine and my family's.

Gah I know! It sticks out like a sore thumb. Either paint it or upgrade when I get new stuff.

You don't even want to see the back panel. It took me about 2 hours to get everything in perfect order. I'd take a picture but I don't think I'd survive the onslaught of cables.

Yeah this was just a practice case to get some experience with it. Next time I'll take my time and do it carefully. Putting everything back together was actually more fun than painting it in the first place.

Sorry for the double post. Just wasn't very pleased with the look of the cables in the pictures so I thought I'd add some close ups.



2nd picture: I took about 10 shots of this area but I was at an angle at my desk that I couldn't keep it steady. This was the best out of them all. I wanna say it's an soft light effect, but then I'd be lying.

I ordered a molex to 4x sata power sleeved from monoprice to replace my sata power cables and it will look much cleaner when it arrives.

Thanks! No, I don't actually own a dremel. It would have made the cutting process much easier though. I had to use a power drill and metal cutting scissors. Also used circular bits for the drill to make the holes.
