How do you think I could improve my cable management? (sorry for the shitty pics, took with camera phone)
Cost me about $1400 after taxes and shipping. The most expensive part was the case LOL.

Ahhhh, the amazing Stacker 832, welcome to the club btw (there's at least 3 or 4 of us with that same case now). I'll never go back to any other small case (although i might go bigger, was thinking of the new lian-li PC-P80 next, its simply stunning). Looks awsome! :thumb:

PS: Add two extra 120mm fans on the bottom (if you want) using the following quick how-to i did a while back:

I thought about doing that, but it's not worth it for me and I don't want to put my case on the casters.

To each his own! I guess with only one video card higher up in the case you don't have to worry like I did about having the lower card in an SLI configuration getting hotter (since the side 120mm won't hit a lower Video card so well at all). Are you sure about the casters though? I know for a fact my case weighs in at over 30lbs or so, so the casters are welcome. But again, its up to you.

Well as you can see my case sits on a stand and the stand is not deep enough to fit all four casters on. I hope to update to crossfire in the near future and maybe even 3x hd3870 down the road. Now for a nice 22" monitor...

Case and ssd?

Labellaescrima July 25, 2012 06:05 PM

Got the SSD and the Case
 
Not anymore got that in my budget, so now I am all set to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before! Hummm...I think I heard that before somewhere in the past.

Why did you post to a thread that is 4 years old instead of just starting your own thread?
