    Careful that graphics card doesn't short itself on the case. It looks like it's got like 1mm clearance :eek:

    Sure he used a dremel? looks more like tin snips from the opening of the graphics card slot at the rear lol

    But apart from that its a top build, looks really good, powerful and nice airflow

    I did the cutting in the front with a jigsaw, but cut the bracket for the SSD/HDD with a dremel ;)

    Here are the final pictures :cool:

    Sorry, just realised this is a double post at OCAU....lost track of all my threads :wired:

    Looks awesome miahallen, every time I see one of these builds. I want to make one even more.
    By the way is the i7 860 going to have ht on/off to reach 4.4GHZ?

    very cool. is the controller there for scale, or are you going to have it so you can connect a gaming controller if you want to? you should I reckon, it would top it off.

    The USB wireless connector for xbox 360 controls to PC is a small usb black box that you could quite nicely integrate INTO the case, and then have the sync controller button on the front of the case or something. Just an idea.

    Great build.

    Great build mate!
    Awesome work. Might want to update your components list. You have G-Skill's listed as your RAM in the OP, but it looks like you have Corsair Dominator GT's in the Final Pics. GTX's if i'm not mistaken by the heat spreaders. :jealous:

    Very nice work though :)

    The controller is there for both purposes you mention.....but that's a great idea about integrating the reciever, I hadn't thought about it as I'm only an ameture modder (this is my first major modded build). I might consider it, thanks! :cool:

    Yeah sorry, I used the Dominators for the article I wrote, for running benchmarks, and for the photo shoot, but the G.Skill DIMMs will be used for 24/7....I can sell the Corsair off for more than the G.Skill cost brand new [rolleyes] The Dominators were sponsored ;)

    So bloody sexy :)

    I'll definitely go matx in the future. So much more awesomeness than full tower cases.
