Your lack of RGB is disturbing. :p

Seriously, that's a nice clean build.........just how I do them as well.

What PC case is that?

I have even used nail polish on some leds that wont turn of via software och switches, (the GPU and Intel PCI-ssd) :D

I'ts an In win 909! I like it, but they cheaped out on the hard drive cages on the later revisions, so I had a hell with fitting the sleds with proper silicon grommets. Sleds from cooler master will fit, and the fronts are exchangeable (I came from an Antec p182, got tired of everything taking an hour to switch stuff in the cramped case, eg. like a hard drive)

My wife managed to pour coffee on my beefier Z170 MOBO and 290X GPU, so I hurried to the store and bought the 270 board they had in + a 590 fatboy as an insurance replacement of equal performance. Kinda sad, but I will get the chance to upgrade when the 5800 XT comes or what not. :)

LOL yeah i was gonna show off one of my rigs, i labeled the picture with a swear word and forgot like photobucket. Accidently just uploaded a download to file showing such swear word. Didn't want it removed and then just decided not to bother posting it anyways.

Was built from some odd end parts,i called it the "macgyver v1.0" cause i took apart a dell, managed to make it work in a standard atx case and cause case was missing side panels and front ones,i used duct tape and some cardboard so my kitties didn't reach in and harm it or themselves.

Has a i3 2100/8gb/gtx660. Its a near fanless build in a huge case, proven a good htpc pc even if the mechanical drive is from like 2009. I just had the parts and needed a htpc like NOW.

Well figured out how to slap in the picture, i feel like a grandparent here its been a minute since i posted pictures but yeah heres the MacGyver v1.0 htpc build. Tower next to it is friends and well thats gonna be main htpc prob after a few more upgrades to mine. Passing all old parts to those in need and idk whos more deserving of a upgrade then my friend who is using the 2500k i got back in 2011 and gifted her in 2012.


Case was missing panels so i did this to keep my kitties and pc safe,i got a kitten who LOVES to nose about.

I moved the fans onto the outside so I could rivet the HDD bay closer to the front.

I 3d printed new front bezel snap on hardware which had become brittle and broke from age.

These really are cool cases and were ahead of their time if you consider the original PC-60 design launched ~2001-2002.

The simple brushed alum finish keeps it from aging like some of the more plastic+steel designs from the same period.

Moving the hdd bay forward lets the 1070 fit :D. Other people probably just ditched the bay or bought a new case :D.

I am buying a 3d printer soon, i had ideas of taking my CM500P Mesh and improving on it. I think the 3d printer will allow me to perfect the case. I want the case a bit more compact as i got no plans for a radiator so in theory the front fans will be more direct to the cpu cooler/gpu if it was cut back about 5 inches. I love this case but its overly bigger then i needed but at the same time its hard to argue with results and its been excellent for thermals.

Essentially my dream case would be something i would want to print but it would be very CM500P Mesh based, oh i forgot to post the new CM500P Mesh in here :)

Not done with this build yet. Waiting for more parts to be delivered and for EKWB to release their FE 3090 block.

Here's the rig in my signature. Added some right angle adapters for the power plugs on the video card to clean up the look as well. Might update pictures later. :)
