    Total cost $450 :cool: (cheaper cause I'm using an old video card otherwise it'll double)

    I had to scrap most parts from the dell machine. It looks so sad now. :hs: The light is optional. I bought the lights with a switch at the end so it doesn't keep me up at night. :wiggle:

    wire loom works pretty good and you can get it at any automotive store. at the very least zip tie the cables together.

    wireloom always looks hacked-together, imho.

    Here's something to aspire to:
    http://potroast.geekcrap.com/galler...:DownloadItem&g2_itemId=192&g2_serialNumber=1
    http://potroast.geekcrap.com/galler...:DownloadItem&g2_itemId=180&g2_serialNumber=2
    http://potroast.geekcrap.com/galler...:DownloadItem&g2_itemId=185&g2_serialNumber=1
    http://potroast.geekcrap.com/galler...:DownloadItem&g2_itemId=190&g2_serialNumber=1

    My next system will be similar. Unfortunatly, however, the pics I posted are not of my personal system.

    Right now I've just got a bundle of zip-tied wires... Gotta wait for my CMStacker!

    1 GB ram so far.

    It's a shame I can't just pull some of the power cables out somehow. There are quite a few I have no idea what they're used for. :hs:

    I just picked up a modular power supply - you plug in what cables you need, leave off the ones you don't.

    500w of power, and very clean from what I'm seening on my monitoring software. Beats the Antec 430w that I had it it hands down.

    well, I've got 8 HDDs.... Add a SB Audigy 2 Platinum ZS, a DVD-RW, a DVD/CD-RW combo, a floppy, and a fan-bus to keep noise down, that means I have my CMStacker completely filled up!

    That's what's so great about this case... It looks good, and it's got a crap-load of room. All of my hdd's are neatly stowed behind 2 120mm fans, and I've got all the room I need to have a cool-running setup. Throw the PSU in the bottom slot and some exhaust fans at the top, and I've got an extremely nice setup. No other case would meet my needs -- but the CMStacker takes care of every one of em. The only flaw I can find with this case (and I've looked hard to find them) is it's not 100% aluminum.... If it were, it'd be perfect.
