ill-minded: is there a reason you are running your RAM in slots 2&4?

oaks101: dude you cant be more then 14. Am i right? very very immature approach on the forums.

Here's mine from MkI...

I know my cabling job looks shit, but if you could see it side on then you'd see that all the cables are routed along the back of the case. Plus the 900's are a bitch to manage your cables in...

Sorry about the thumbnails.

ill-minded, that looks much nicer than before (and even then it was pretty good). considering the multiple drives, its very clean & tidy. nice work.
slyls1, pretty good, and i like the black/blue theme..

not really... mate told me that it's apparently the "in" thing to do because it's further away from the heat from the cpu. not that theres really that much heat coming out of the intake side of the TRUE lol. yours looks good too with the exception of that hard drive power cable :P

oh and thanks t8y

slyls1, I love the black/blue theme you have going on in you case. Looks awesome. My blue cathodes seem to drown out all the blue led light from the HSF.

slyls1, damnnn that looks awesome ><
I just got two 12" red cathodes for my TT Soprano..
One's at the bottom wedged (barely) between the hdd cage and the edge of the case, and the other is behind the support bar near the top of the case..
Great lighting and I can;t see the cathodes, which is good as they as the intense bright light distracts me too much haha

I sooo have to paint my TT now, that paintjob looks sweet..
Any other mods?
I'm sick of the door but don't want to get rid of it.. Know what I mean? lol

What cases are people finding to be especially good, and especially bad for cable management? - I've noticed praise for the CM690 and FT01 already. Just looking to replace my ageing Sonata v1. :]

Also, do people have any good sources of cable ties? I'm thinking of just buying a heap from dealextreme - $1.99US for 100*15cm, but will buy local if there's a a reasonably cheap option.

I usually get a pack of the 100mm ones from Jaycar or Dick Smiths ~$3 for 100 of them and also the 300 pack of various length ones from the auto shop down the road ~$6.

This was already featured in the previous thread, but I thought I would repost. I'll post some better pictures when I clean the dust out.
