I am using an Antec 300.

Is there anything else I could do? I want MOAR!

Mod edit: Don't post images this big again. If it breaks tables on my 22" widescreen it is WAY too big. Not only that but it is obnoxious to download them. Do you have a specific question? A lot of the pictures don't show anything relevant to the thread title.

Sure. But they are from earlier before I put my better-er cable management in.


Actually go here and you can see more pics. :D

I will be repainting it (it looks crappy-ish) later this summer and will also be doing a new side panel (it will be a surprise)

dude, i wanna see more pics of this badboy. I own a 300, and my girlfriend has one (its on my desk right now for repairs) And i have to say that the Antec 300 is by far my favorite case on the bloody planet. MaxPc gave it a bad review (5/10 if i recall correctly) but i dont think that they took the fact that it was 50 bucks into consideration. my favorite server is in a 300 (ASRock mobo w/DDR/DDR2, AGP-PCI-e, Celeron E1200 1.6ghz and 2Gb of Corsair valu-ram) the whole thing cost me under 200 bucks (i payed 7.99 for each stick of ram (its got two 1gb dimms)

sorry, i just can't believe how good that machine has been...

ANYWHO! yes, i'd love to see more pics. that is such a great looking computer, please tell me what is in there!

By the way, that is a lovely case mod. did you cut the stock panel to drop in that piece of plexi?

I say we should burn you as a witch. There aren't enough cables visible to run that.

I know your build is getting creamed over, but you asked...

Get a soldering iron and some soldering tools. No need for all that stuffed wiring. Trim it to fit. One picture, to me, told the story, and it's the 3rd one. Adapter, adapter, adapter...that's a build to me and should be average. Mod? Change something with your skills!

I think I could trim that backplane down to...2 runs? One Molex could more than likely run every single molex device you have in the case. One molex, could remove every single adapter in there, and that ugly back side would be wonderful to see in it's simplicity.

Adapters need axed in this section I'd hope. Should be the norm in Help Me Build...

I fail to see a mod.

Okay. I will look into it. Not all my fans can be put onto a single molex (because if I have to remove something or if I upgrade to a bigger case or something, then moving the fans would be a pain in the ass). As for my cables that cannot be seen, I did that on purpose but my camera sucks :/ so I cannot sow all the damn things. But if you look at the back of the mobo tray you can see the wires that are missing. And my PCI slot fans I solder those together onto a single 3 pin (from 2 molex e_e) and sleeved them.


As for how loud it is. Yes it is kind of loud but my GTX260 actually is louder than my 3k fan. The 3k is contolled by my board (and I use EasyTune 6 to adjust the fan speed based on temp). Most of the time my fan is running anywhere between 30-65%. But when I stress or if my processor gets above 55C it starts to go to 100%. My stock 140mm tri-cool is louder than most of my fans as well, but overall you her the are being moved through it <.<
