This is hands down the best case I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Not sure if it's the components, the perfectly proportioned case, or a combination of the two.
I'm a little crazy when it comes to cable management. The prep work for this build took about 20 hours, 6 full tear downs and two bloody hands from making my own cables.
I essentially built this around two components, the motherboard and CPU, which were gifted by sheer chance. That gave me the kick to start selling off all my old crap I had laying around, to come up with this...
It's uses include: Semi-console killer (racing sims), ****, web browsing and work. (and in that order)
For mods, I simply removed the ATX power supply mount and made a super short SATA power cable. At 5.75" (146mm) it's just enough to get the job done, without any extra. I had to use 2 donor power supplies to make this happen, but the end result, in my opinion, finishes everything off perfectly.
FAQ's: Why the 5 year old 2600K?? - I got the machine to fully boot in 14 sec, that's more than enough power for me.
250GB drive, that's it? - We have a 4Tb NAS in the house, no need for extra storage.
Watercooling? for what? - Never got into it, wanted to try it. May even try my hand at OC'ing. Haven't done that since the Athlon XP days.
Sheer chance? - They didn't need them at my work any more, was in PC recycle pile, I jumped on it lol
