Love it man!.. Much nicer then you last build. What case is that?

Running it dry might yield some excellent temp....

Heehee.

Thanks man. The case was an old Chenbro server case from about 10 years ago... I cut it up real good. I'm still not done with it either....just gotta free up some time so I can get measurements for the Acrylic!!

Why put case covers on?

Looks damn fine as is, case cover stop dust......and.......and.....provide visual aesthetics.......nothing more really, well a wind tunnel happens with good inlets!! With the WC you don't have any dust issues.

I think you still have room for a cold six pack above the power supply. Looks great! Nice work Cptn.

dont forget the UV sleeving kit! It is a pain in the arse, but kills time and looks WAY better than regular cabling! Oh ignore that one fan cable in my case, it is only temorary. I am doing this build proper!!

The case is looking great Cptn. Is that a floppy drive mounted in your desk below the case? I hope those wheels are locked, I'd hate to see it hit the floor.

With the front and top all naked like it is now I keep picturing the Borg Cube. I could see someone gluing old procs, circuit boards, ram, LEDs and other bits and pieces to the exterior, painting them to match the case and, voila....Borg!

Great job so far, can't wait to see what you come up with for skinning it.
