As of tight now I am just going to paint the inside(not sure what color yet) and cut a few holes for cable management. It won't arrive from the egg until Monday or Tuesday and and I leave on Saturday for vacation for 2 weeks. Probably a good thing, as my wife will need a few weeks to cool off about the fact that I bought it in the first place..lol

Well I finally got started on it. Drilled a few holes to make room for cable management and a few to allow me to mount the hard drives backwards without cramping the connectors. Also had to fabricate an deflector to grab air from the bottom 1/3 of the bottom fan and blow it over the hard drives. Had to do this because I wanted the hard drives flush with the back of the mounting area and they would have stucj out if I was to put the fan directly in front of them. Mounted them using the Scythe Disk Stabilizer II(thanks for the idea soundx98). They should have plenty of airflow with the deflector and the way that they are mounted. I can't believe how thinner these new seagate drives are. I also hacked apart an old power supply and grabbed the front half of it to use to eventually cover up the wires coming out of the ps and heading into the back of the m/b tray. I will have to paint it black to match of course but that will be later When I pull everything apart again an paint.

Still waiting on my new Muskin ram,(this board still doesn't like OCZ for some reason) 8 pin power cable extention cable and longer sata cable for the dvd burner to arrive also. Then I will finish up the top half of the case. I am not going to be able to use a fan controller like I wanted to either because of the way I mounted the hard drives.

And someday I will figure ot how to make the images just show uo without having to click on them.

 

Actually quite simple; upload them to an external image host such as photobucket, imageshack, or the OCIDB; then insert the image into the body of the post with the img tags.

 

for example, the following:

will show up as below:

I think your case is lookin' very "schwing".:D

Sure would like to see some better pics at 800x600.

I like the PSU wire "cover-upper" and the air flow deflector a lot.

more pics por favor
