    Truth is I could have done a much cleaner cable management / cpu fan positioning, but I think I'll just leave it like it is 'til I'll have new components. It's not easy to overheat that piece of rock anyway! :P



    Edit: you might have noticed that I gathered everything that couldn't be seen from the window panel in the corners /lazy :P

    Indeed, I could probably fit 3-4 mobos like that if only I had enough standoff holes x)
    I paid it like a Haf 922 though, so I'll just let it be comfy 'til I'll find something better

    modular power supplies are amazing. they are a lil more expensive but well worth it.

    The back could probably be a bit cleaner but the cords on the PSU were pretty stiff, first time cable management.

    i5-2500k w/ Noctua NH-D14
    16GB Corsair Vengeance LP Arctic White (covered by the monstrous NH-D14)
    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
    GIGABYTE GTX 560 Ti w/448 Cores
    Crucial M4 128GB SSD + Western Digital 1TB HDD
    SeaSonic X650 80+ GOLD

    I may or may not try to find the time to move the HDD/SSD bay to the left as others have done.

    Looks good, much better looking than the cable management job I have. The only thing that really looks messy are the wires running across the bottom of you motheboard, but I'm guessing there wasn't much you could do with that.

    I'll post some more pics soon, as I got a fan controller this last week and I'm going to be getting a Crucial M4 128GB for my birthday in about a week. I'm going to do some more cable management when I get back to it, so hopefully it doesn't look awful anymore. It currently is this mess.

    Yeah, I'm almost certain the PSU covers the small cutout down in that corner or else I would have used that one. Next time I'll need a new computer will be for heavy 3d modeling and that kind of stuff and I'll be going full-out on it by sleeving all cables and that stuff. That said, I'm 99% happy with what I was able to do.

    With an extension for the 4 pin cable it would be even better, but those are invisible details once you put the side panel on

    Just a bit of practice, patience, and pulling, you can achieve this.

    Guess I should have posted this in here

    Mini ITX was fun and all, but I miss not having space to run wires and the sometimes issue of not having a long enough wire instead of not having a large enough case. So after this I am reluctant to say I am moving back to Mid Towers.

    But anyway here is what I just built.

    Specs:
    Sg07 Silverstone Case (With 600w Silverstone PSU)
    ASRock Z68M-ITX/HT LGA 1155 Intel Z68 MB
    XFX Radeon HD 7950 Core Edition 3GB 384-bit GDDR5
    G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM
    Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W
    Two 19" 4:3 Monitors + One 25" 16:9 Monitor
    Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110
    Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400
    1TB OS Hard Drive + 500 GB VM/Fraps HD + Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5" 30GB Caching SSD

    I've found that if I don't give myself a budget I will end up trying to buy everything.
    So my budget was $1200 and I already had two of the Monitors, Keyboard, Mouse, Case, and the Two Mechanical HDD's.
    It is mostly used for VMWare Workstation and of course games.

    PICTURES!!!







    MODS: I posted this as its own thread. Please delete that thread as I believe it should belong in here.

    You should have bought a Thermaltake Armor 30 case to be honest, it's got tons more room for a MicroATX case but it's still super small.

    Congrats to the 7 fools who made the ignore list, bravo!

    What heatsink is that?

    I'm thinking of building a HTPC with gaming possibilities.

    Looks like a Scythe CPU cooler, possibly this one with a taller fan on it http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16835185097

    Its a Scythe 2000

    And I as said in my post I already had the Mini-ITX Sg07 case from about a year and a half ago. So I built to that size.

    Cable management of the year.




    It's been running like that for about 2 months, didn't notice any performance hit.

    Can you get an infraction for absolutely horrible cable management? XD
