That is a nice looking case.

But is that the best you can do with cable management? :mrgreen:

Nice case, never really thought of using a rack mount for a case though.... reminds me to much of work LOL

I wouldn't mind a rack setup, keep everything in one place and still have it modular so it's easy to take apart.................... :mrgreen:

Definitely need a 56k warning on this thread! :shock:

As Dan stated, the cable management needs looked at, and the lapping job on the cpu looks incomplete.

Otherwise, very nice stuff! Crazy congested, but nice. :)

yah dude it looks to busy to me, you should make some cuts for cable runs. as for the water cooling, look into a swiftech or a dtek fuzion cpu block, it would look alot cooler (scuse the pun :) ) and cool better to

Yeah, Swiftech GTX has a cool style (also works good) and cable management is an urgent process...

Hi, i have to say that lapped CPU is a Q6600 and works satisfying up to 4100-4150 GHz. It's just not shined, because "not shining but a flat surface" is a good resul for me...

Maybe its the pic, but it sure looks like an incomplete lap job to me, and I'm not referring to how shiny it is, but how consistent it looks.
