I'll take the bonus point for coming up with the old tongue translation earlier...

My G/F saw the name of your project, and her exact response was "ewwwww.... but that's evil! Why would he want to name it that?" LoL

Okay the bad news:

1: the usb, firewire,ect cables are to short to route them well so I will have to solder and extend the wires when I sleeve.

2: Cable management sucks, because of the sound insulation on the side panel you cant run any cable behind the mobo tray. I am thinking is I made up a "j" shaped piece of Alu and installed it in the front backside, zap 2 screws from the backside so it is hidden that should solve my problem.

I am going to go ahead and install into the case anyways and get my measurements now. Then I should know exactly what modifications I will need to do before I sleeve.

Quick question.

So the XBOX360 modding case is gonna be dedicated to the water cooling gear only?

Update:

Installed the northbridge cooler, Noctua NC-U6, and Cooler Master Hiper 212+. MX-2 was used for both the northbridge and CPU, I am finally out of that thick IC-24
Mounting the motherboard and installing the motherboard tray into the case was nice and roomy. I had to feed the heatsink in first because of the height of the 212.

Hehe, so what was the reasoning behind the jetway mobo? Just not a common choice in these parts :P

Update:


Well motherboard and tray installed, time to hook everything up






Cables hooked up and hdd and soundcard installed






275 GTX installed and pci support bracket installed.





PCI-E switch card, without this installed the motherboard defaults to 2@8x, with it imstalled the top slot runs at full speed @16x.






Some final Shots.














I have temporarily set it up where I had my old case but IDK it will be staying there long.










Well it is 10:30 here so thats enough for me tonight.
