I already got a 10x10 window for it, going on this weekend. Also going to put another exhaust fan on the top (blow hole)

My CPU temps dropped!!!!!! I still cant believe it.. Before my Q6600 used to run at an average of 55 degrees under load at 3.0GHz. I haven't seen it go over 48 degrees.

My V1100 is in the mail, expect pics by the end of the week (or so I hope :D).

Started out in a PC-65B that served me through a number of builds, both Water and Air cooled too, and then moved to a Shuttle for the first year of college, now moving back to ATX as I felt a little cramped in the Shuttle, and the V1100 seemed like a perfect fit for me!

I'm going to order a V2000B Plus II from performance-pcs.com soon. But first a quik Q, do they come with the floppy drive converter and optical drive door? I'm just wondering otherwise I'd order two right away.

...if you want something that is roomy, light and with good air flow as well...then I'd suggest the PC-A05 (which is what I have.)

Just installed some new 5.25" hard drive cages since i was running out of HD space. I still have a new psu i need to install (2nd psu, notice the new dual plate) and a Tuniq HSF. I know the cable management doesnt look very good, but if anyone can give me suggestions on how to hide 12 sata cables that go to different places on my mobo that would be awesome :)

Nice file (porn) server :p

What you can do to tidy it up a bit is cable tie the S-ata cables that go to the same place so that it looks like a single cable rather than loads. That IDE cable would be easy to hide a lot more than it already is. Great cases though ;)

Here's my G50 as it stands, need to get a few cutting discs though then I can cut some holes for cable management and for fitting 2 fillports. So far I've done the blowhole for the CPU rad and turned the HD bay 90 degrees / moved it back so I can fit a second rad for the graphics card :)

I fell in love with this case reading the ao5 thread. I had to have it. Still have some wire tidying to do but overall its been the highest quality case i've ever used.

Not the best of pictures, lighting is utter **** in my room so I had to use the flash... too lazy to get the tripod out.

I've done the holes for mounting the fillports and some for cable management.

Nice blue fox. What are you doing with all of those hdds?

It's my media storage for the HTPC. Server doesn't get used for much more than that except if I'm encoding or rendering something (helps to have multiple processors). As for storage, it houses slightly over 4TB at the moment.

When I removed the one hd rack in the bottom I moved the remaining one to allow for more room in the back. I had to widen two of the holes on the bottom to use all 4 bottom screws for the hd cage, I believe you just need a little extra room in the back of the hd cage to use them turned around.

Evoic - Thanks! Those fans are Panaflo L1 Low Noise 120mm, I bought several 120mm fans and they were my favorite. Still waiting to receive my last one for the video card and replace that Yate Loon.

A perspective shot of this beauty:

Ooh, is that an HR-03 Plus peeking through with a 120mm fan on my 8800GTS?:

iPhone pics, hehe, not the best, I'll see if I can get a hold of a real camera sometime.

Today I took the time to route around the wires a little better, but nothing is in the way of airflow at all, it pulls in from the back behind the CPU through the Tuniq Tower, and then rises up and goes out the side with a little help from the HR-03's fan. Maybe going to add a 120 on the side again but the side fan mount doesn't fit as well with the HR-03 installed.

Looks like those years paid off...that's mighty nice cable management.

Specs?
