Description

This build started a few months back and was initially built using a shuttle case and shuttle 500w power supply.(http://www.modsrigs.com/detail.aspx?BuildID=32922)

I was able to pick up the fractal case and Corsair power for a really good price and decided to relocate the major components into that setup.

Everything fit very well, even the Zalman liquid cooler. I removed some of the extra power supply cables not needed to create some breathing room and cut an access hole on the right side of the case to allow for better routing of the motherboard cables. I also added an Alienware MIO PCB that provides functionality of lighting/thermal control. So far I have LEDs in the front, right and left that are controlled by Alienware command center.

I will add some benchmark and temp details later

"I was able to add an Alienware master I/O card and install Alienware command center for lighting control. Right now I just have the front led going and will add L/R leds shortly. " can you point this out in the build? Maybe circle it in red on a pic and put a stamp "zemco is an idiot how could you not see this ye dense person"

LOL, I will do that :). Last pic is a top view, shows the Alienware MIO PCB and front LEDs illuminating through the top intake.

Yes, ebay. The PCB I used was MS-4194 ver 1.1. This version is from and AW Aurora and works for this kind of application. Just need power and USB connection to MB. I posted a closeup of the PCB in the pics section. I am also using AW command center ver 2.7.24.0.
