    I love my Swiftech, that's a Vantec stealth fan@1600rpm I'm sure the noiseiest thing in that box is the Radeon now. I might replace the heatsink when the warranty gives out.

    The braiding on the PSU cables is stock Aerocool goodness, although there are a few too many for my little case. As you can see, some are tucked up above the DVD.

    As for cable routing, I'm going to see if I can fit cables behind the drive cages, but I'm reluctant to remove the mobo again, since it was such a PITA to install in the first place I am considering more cable braiding though, but I'll start with cable ties for simplicity, and getting rid of that ugly floppy cable. The problem is, I keep buying two-ended Antec cables with two floppy ends, rather than a floppy and a system end, doh!

    Cool My PimpRig

    this is from http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.p...014#post323014

    MORE PICS ON THE BOTTOM


    CASE SPECS:
    ----------------------
    4 case fans - 2 Ultra back UV-sensitive, side UV + LED's
    Fan filters
    2 12" Ultra UV black lights
    12" cold cathode blue liquid light
    2 PS fans (separate from the rest of case)
    Cooler Master Aerogate II fan controller
    Compaq system speaker
    Lock on the door
    Side I/O panel (2 USB, Firewire, DV)
    CD-ROM bezel like on Macs, but glued onto the cd-rom bezel (slides out instead of rolling in when CD-ROM opens)
    Handle on the back
    Door opens downward like on the Mac G4 case
    Most things, other than fans and mobo attach with industrial-strength Velcro for easy detachment (including hard drive bay)
    CD-ROM easily-removable (snap-in style)
    All-aluminum, including hard drive bay, providing better heat dissipation and making the case strong
    Rubbery bottom and rubbery feet
    No ribbon cables and no sleeving...all cables are round and UV-sensitive

    MATERIALS USED:
    -----------------------------
    Acrylic plastic - 3 sheets (2 24x24", 1 12x36"
    Aluminum sheets (2 18.5" x 18.5", 3 7.5" x 18.5", 1 7.5" x 19.5"
    Black glossy spray paint (two cans for metal, one for plastic)
    About 200 screws in the whole case
    Some All-Styx glue became necessary for a few small parts
    Akasa noise reducing stuff...the black stuff you see stuck to the aluminum (the acrylic plastic goes on top)
    Lock and other stuff

    TOOLS USED:
    ----------------------
    Various power saws I could find in my dad's garage
    Plastic scraper tool or whatever it's called
    Screwdrivers and keys
    And lots of other stuff
    oh, and a buffing wheel

    People ask me how long the whole thing took to make. A LONG TIME. In November 2003 I decided to do it and drew a design of what I wanted it to be like. I spent most of the summer building it at my Russian country house. Finished it here in Houston. Between November and May I looked at many cases and mods online to see what I could use for my case...basically did lots and lots of research on modding. Since this was the first ever thing I built like this, with power tools and everything, it took me much longer to learn how to use all the tools and do everything. I also spent a lot of time redoing parts I didn’t do right and going to the store to buy more materials.
    The case is very strong and sturdy. It’s all out of aluminum sheets and with the acrylic plastic on the outside. So I was talking to my friend once and telling him about my computer case. He was like “can you sit on it?” Like what the hell, is it supposed to be bullet-proof? You know when I was making the case I didn’t think of using it as a chair. Anyway, it is still very strong especially with the two-layer design. I don't know if you can sit on it though.

    Wow they still sell it. And it's significantly cheaper than what I paid I think

    Thought Id post my little creation that I made a while back now.

    Basically, its an 10" square acrylic cube, with aluminium edges and a lockable, hinged lid for easy access. The sides are etched by myself with some logo's and all the cables are stainless steel braided and trimmed to length.
