My System Specs

Default My Rig: Antec 900, Intel i5-3570K

Figured I'd post up some pictures of my completed rig. I've had the GPU, PSU, Case, Sound card, and HDDs for about 3 years now but just updated the RAM, Mobo, CPU, cooler, and threw in an SSD,















This was the Original 900, it was painted black (very poorly if I do say so myself ) and a couple of extra holes cut for wire routing. The psu was also flipped with a vent at the bottom. The hard drives were flipped around (and fan removed) and a hole cut in the HDD cage for the wires to exit straight behind the mobo panel.

Specs:
i5 3570k @4.4ghz
16GB Crucial Ballistic Sport 1600mhz
AsRock Extreme4 Z77
Sapphire 5750 (lol)
Antec Kuhler 620 w/ Cougar V12 PWM fan
OCZ Vertex 120GB SATA III SSD
WD 500GB Blue
WD 1.5TB Green
Crappy 600W Modular Rocketfish PSU (Cost me $20 and has been going 24/7 for 3 years now)
Asus PCE-N53 N600 Wifi Card
Asus Xonar DG Sound card (Have a DX to put in, just haven't got around to it)
Win 8 Pro x64

I use it for light gaming, program development, a bit of CAD, and internet browsing, etc.

Nice update. Next step if you game much has to be graphics card and power supply.

Done!
All in all it come out "meh"
Could have been cleaner, could have been much worse and still is 1000 times better than stock. That one double wire on the 24 ATX I could just not do with my skills, but I am going to get a crimper and connectors at some point to do it right. Total cost was $9 :)











Any ideas on the Front panel, USB and Audio connectors?
