You lock it down with big thumbscrews, provided with the case. And no need to post IN CAPS.

Radish?

No, it's just that it takes him 3 hours to find the case connector pins on his motherboard :p

The SATA drives are not any diff from ATA ones really, the main benefit is you don't have anything PATA anymore and thusly no fat/flat cables plus it looks slicker and is easier to manage :)

Here's some new pics:

Here's the front door open with dust filters in view, you can remove both filters to clean them out and they do pick up a lot of dust so I'm thankful that the inside of the case is only dusty at an absolute minimal level.

pc_case_dustfilters.jpg

This is the space I have to work with for fitting the HDDs on the bottom bay, you can have 4 drives in here max but 3 if you want to give them breathing space, There is a fan directly on the black bracket you can see which creates a wind tunnel effect on the bottom section of the case.

pc_case_hddbay.jpg

The GFX card is pretty huge, I miss the days of single socket coolers. Because the GFX card gets so hot my poor WiFi card gets heated too - still works fine though :)

pc_case_PCIbay.jpg

The open space thanks to SATA dvdrw

pc_case_5.5bay.jpg

The new cooler Freezer 7 Pro, enough space to remove the RAM easily unlike some coolers where the fan blocks the closest ram stick.

pc_case_ramcpu.jpg

And finally some connections...random.

pc_case_satagfx.jpg

Everything.

:)

Nice busy little corner! the screen up that high would make my neck totally :-----------/ though!

Just finished my build about a week ago and its actually a presentable computer unlike my old Pentium III. Sorry some of the pics are low quality don't know what was going on with the camera but i was in a hurry so i will try to get better pictures some other day and some internal ones too. Specs in my signature.

My new Acer AL2051 20" monitor and Halo 2 on it!

The computer itself in a Cooler Master Centurion 5 case QUESTION: Does anyone know why my DVD Drive sits so far back in the case? if i set it more forward the cover just ends up sliding it back when i put it in. any ideas? thanks

Stickers!

025.jpg

Everything! Standard Crappy Phone and 30GB White Zune

026.jpg

The boxes for some of the hardware and software. Windows XP, Ubuntu Stickers (haha), Phone case, Halo 2, Zune, Win Vista in top
