    Was best picture I could take.
    The two drive bay clamps were a cheap plastic that broke as soon as they were twisted to lock in place so currently not using them, they just sit there for now.
    Anyone know some good quality red clamps? (I prefer the screws then the twist/lock method)
    I tried shoving the wiring behind the drive bay, but it was going to warp the back side panel no matter how much I spaced them out, so I just bunched them up with some ties and placed the bundle in the bottom on the case.
    At the time when I was installing the graphics card I didn't realize how low I had set it and would have bumped it up a slot or two, but the small shields that you take out on the back are punch outs and I haven't found a way to put them back in, so instead of punching out another shield I just left it on the lower slot and took a look at the temperatures to make sure if the gpu was becoming too hot under load. (Reaches 70c so not worth making the case ugly.)

    I can only lean forward.

    Get a kneeling chair (the ones popularized in the 80s.) It basically promotes the same inclination and neutral spinal position but keeps your torso upright.

    DAMN Daveric! I love how your rig looks, and the cabling and braiding, wow! That blue just looks awesome! I invite you to post in the CPU/GPU OC leaderboards if you plan to overclock your CPU and/or GPU! That is definitely a killer system and looks the part, too!

    Looks extremely sexy Daveric! Looks cleaner without the LEDs in my opinion though. No SSD?

    Did anyone else notice the boot error in the first picture of Daveric's post?

    Yeah the back of mine looks nothing like that...you have inspired me.

    Edit: the forum ate my other post.

    Yeah...I forgot to put the windows install disk in to reinstall (using the same hard drive from my old rig which you can see in the corner in one of the pictures) and it was looking for old hardware. It turns out that pic had the best lighting with system on.

    No SSD yet, though it is planned, and I've already replaced the top fan with two non led fans I had lying around. Eventually I will replace them with a set of corsair af120s (or the 140mm version if there is space), and I'll switch that front fan out as well. I had to cut out the fans and the ssd to justify the 670 with my CFO (the wife).
