    UPDATE: I finally got around to a test build, so have added it in, see here
    Short on cables due to the hardware I used, however I can forsee cable management being tricky but not impossible, due to the relatively small size of this case.

    You can runn excess PSU cables around the left side of the hard drive cage and just tuck them all in the bottom of that without much hassle.
    I may well knock up a box/cover arrangement to solt into the bottom of the drive cage to hide any cables hidden there.


    My current Ideas for mod so far are:
    -Remove side panel vent and replace with a window.
    -cut cable hole in the top of the motherboard tray.
    -Construct cover for the bottom of the hard drive cage to hide spare cables.

    I'd love to try to get some water cooling in here, just for the shier hell of it, but I've never done water cooling before and looking at the costs involved it's just way too much for my pocket

    Well I've finally managed to get someone at play.com to realise I should have two sticks of ram not one

    And I've put two of the xfx gts250 on preorder with scan for there current super low price

    So with luck I'll be able to do a better build with an i5 and gts250 sli in the near future.

    The cinese factories make this middle tower computer cases with SECC 0.50mm or at most with SECC 0.70mm , and it is impossible to make them change their minds and use SECC 1,00mm or SECC 1.20mm instead

    Actually it's more than likely SGCC steel which is cheaper to make, that said there are some makes of case that use thicker steel.
    Both Antec and Chieftec use 0.9mm SECC steel in their cases that I know off.
    The only places you're likely to find 1.0mm or 1.2mm are in servers


    UPDATE:
    I'm currently doing some tests with my msi p55-GD65 prior to doing a full build, also need to cut a hole in the top of the motherboard tray for the EPS connector.
    However it's damn cold out there on my balcony, so the hole cutting is going to be put off a while. unless I brave the cold tomorrow.

    Scan couldn't get in any more gts250 at there super low price, so currently I'm keeping an eye out for a 2nd hand 9800gtx to sli and/or waiting to see what fermi's going to be like/cost.

    I did do a test fit of my coolermaster Hyper 212 plus cooler and I can say that it fit with about 5mm clearence (it's 160mm tall) so the vast majority of 120mm fan based tower cooler will fit without issue, although you cannot use the top fan mount on the side panel as that's diorectly above the cpu.
