im jealous of all you guys with new expensive cases. i got a cheap raidmax case that shreds my hands each time i reach near the drive bays(or anything else for that matter). i do plan on buying a new chieftec or chemning server case with window so i have added room when i open my case. what would you guys recommend for a new case?

um on commercial disks, the data is written on the label, cd-r/rw's are written on inthe middle, so actually he is doing something worse to it. or at least risking more..

then again the paint is tougher, but bla bla bla

Here's current build. Awaiting gpu surround yet. Last pic shows heatsinks i had to add as well as fan to pwm section to her 'er stable. Adding heatsinks to the mosfets by the AGP slot brought better AGP stability as well!

I was just thinking the same thing.....lol

I'm also working on a theme case so to speak. I have finally built up the nerve to cut up my Aopen H700B full tower Gimmie a couple of weeks and I should have some pics up. I will try to get a couple of in progress shots...

Nice mod by the way

no, i didnt shoot it. i thought about that, but it would bend the whole panel and mess it up so it wouldnt fit on the case any more, so i couldnt. i took a drill and drilled the hole, then bent it inwards with pliers. then sanded away the paint around them.
