I think that with a Modular power supply the Antec 900 isn't all that bad. Having all Sata drives is another plus as well since i found the Sata cables really easy to manage.

I will be ordering another Corsair 620HX PSU for my 2nd Antec 900 build :)

Yep.The SATA power connectors are custom.I made 90% of the connectors in the case from scratch with new parts.

The connectors are from frozenCPU , they are actually black bodies with blue 'endcaps' ;

Can you explain how you did this? I'm really interested in doing this for my case. Excellent idea BTW.

Yeah - I'd be interested in cleaning my machine up a little too. I especially hate the IDE cables.

Nice clean loops, love it.

Any particular reason you went BTX on it?

I saw that offer! ...and resisted!

It was a mail-in rebate, and I've found Antec's rebates to be real slowwww in returning. Otherwise I would have snatched one up.

A real challenge for tidy cables, but nearly unbeatable cooling in a fairly small package. Definately a good Ford F150 truck of cases! It's just that for $100+, there are a lot of other cases I tend to prefer.

I think that the P182 is the king, and also for 60$ you can get the CM690...

Quick inside view of my little Celeron build. CM690 is almost as good as my TJ09, I must say a spectacular case.

With that CPU cooler, and the Celeron Dualcore E1200 @ 3.1GHZ, I am getting load temps of 44 degrees. Woot!

Thanks :)

I went with the inverted setup because I was planning on keeping the radiator internal, but unfortunately i mis-measured and was short about 1/2 inch. So I had to put the radiator underneath. At this point I would go back to ATX if I could. But unfortunately I can't as the case was painted and cut for the inverted setup :(
