My new case after I sold the custom loop. Wanted something a bit smaller and needed some cold hard EMT. It's amazing how big of a difference a few inches makes. I've got a few minor mods planned for this guy. Window, PSU cover and paint the rings on those corsair fans yellow. Also trying to decide which gpu to get.





Found a nifty place to mount the SSD.

Default My NZXT Case Mod

I just finished modding one of my older PC cases. It actually turned out a lot better than what my initial plan.



I just wanted to cover drive bay, then decided to mod my Power supply bay. I use have my cables all located in the bottom section.



HDD temps have increased slightly. I went from 28 degrees, to 29 degrees Celsius. CPU core temps remained almost the same. I mounted some huge 140mm fans inside, however they only work well if i have the door open. I don't do much extreme overclocking so the temperatures should be good enough.

Here is what my lower bay looks like. There is an extra 120mm fan inside blowing more air into the power supply.

Default New Pics of My New Case

Well, finally have all the new components and red fans running, and the charger for my Nikon arrived in the mail today so I can use my good camera. (Charger died - $80+ for new one, ordered on eBay, came with a battery that costs $90 here, both for $26 - seem to be genuine Nikon and seem to be working).

Anyway, without further ado my new Red Rig - its a Fractal Design R4 Titanium Window edition. Loaded with eight fans - the two 140's it came with, plus to Bitfenix red LED 140's on top, and four Coolermaster R4 red LED 120's (rear exhaust, bottom intake, and a push pull on my CPU cooler.

Had a few worries when rebuilding this rig - would the PSU cables be long enough - they were - but not buy much, they would have been to short in the larger Fractal Design case I had considered. Part of the excuse to get a new designer case was my upgrade to a HD 7970 - the Gigabyte OC Windforce 3 card did fit, but just. I could have rotated the upper hard drive case to make it fit (or removed it altogether), but didn't have to. Had half inch to spare.
