Smile My Comp...

Well, as a first post I guess I'll show off my computer guts. :P

I just recently bought a new gpu cooler for my comp to replace the stock one on my 8800gtx. :p

Here we go...











Initially when I got the case, I thought it was awesome, great airflow and all, but I soon realized that cable management in this case was pretty bad without a modular power supply.

With the help of enaberif, we ended up modding the case slightly by drilling 3 holes in the backplate. That way I was able to feed the cables I need behind the backplate and make it easier to manage the cables. :p

Very nice! I recently built a rig similar in that case, and yeah, the cable management was pretty horrible. Nice mod!
