Well awhile back I bought ccokeman's U2-UFO case and an old school Thermochill PA120.3 (thanks again ccokeman :thumbsup: ) When I fisrt got the case, I was just so happy to move into such a bigger space than my Antec 1200, and from the 240mm Black Ice II Extreme into the 120.3 Thermochill, that I just threw everything into her real quick and didn't worry about the looks. But, I just finished this past semester and have 3 week off until summer session, so I wanted to get The Cube cleaned up a bit, some wire management, better routing on the tubing, as well as adding a 120.3 performance shroud and getting away from the metal tape (pics will show this rediculousness ;) ) and switching out the fans on my rad! Opening Day at the IMS is this sat May 14, and before I begin a 2 week vacation at the track, I wanted to spend some time on the build getting her looking respectable and all :thumbsup:

Remember she is still not finished, only a work in progress. But, I think she is getting there. The 2nd 120.3 and 2 water blocks for the 6970's will have to wait till the fall for now :evilgrin:

Feel free to comment, criticize (don't be too harsh), or praise :cheers:

Before, with metal tape, because the PA120.3 did not have brackets for front mounting fans, got the performance shroud to lose the metal tape :rofl:

I Like it!! I really wish i could get some water cooling for my rig. But this secondary rig im putting together has used up of all the spare money i had.

But now i have a computer for a bunch of extra virtual machines as well a 2nd computer for friends to play on when i have guests over.

*My System*
>< Case: Antec DF-85 >< PSU: Antec CP-850 850w >< MoBo: Asus P6X58D-E ><

>< CPU: i7-930, @ 4.0Ghz >< CPU Cooler: Prolimatech Megahalems >< TIM: Artic Silver MTX ><

>< RAM: Mushkin Blackline 6gb DDR3-1600 @ 1914mhz 7-10-7-24 2T ><

>< SSD: Corsair Force F120 120gb >< HDD: 2x Samsung F4 320gb Raid-0 ><

>< GPU: MSI Twin Frozr II GTX570 @ 900/1800/2250 24/7>< Monitor: Asus 24" LCD @ 1920x1080 ><

My gold plated butt-plug business is being sued by Apple. Apparently they have a patent for overpriced crap for a holes.
