Its a nine Year Old Pentium 133 gateway case (this is a bigboy) I painted the exterior and interior silver. Also removed outer shell and cut plexi glass sides for easy no screw sliding door access.

Asus A7n8x Rev 2.0

120gb western digital parallel 8mb cache drive

Amd Barton 2500 ocd to 2.285ghz

Coolermaster Aero 7+ Cooler.

MGE/XD vigor 500watt power supply

ATI all in wonder 9600xt

Corsair platinum 512mb single channel

Coolermaster Cooldrive 4

Soundblaster audigy

Various lights

Future plans swaping the DVD rom for a DVD-RW
another 512mb stick of Corsair Ram

The Gateway battle crusier case.

Folks might need a pic of the front with a yard stick or somerthing for scale to understand how big it is.

Oh yeah - wrap those links with BB code or the Mods will have a hissy.

like edit them with
Code:
"[url=http://enter_url_here]Text - Pic of my case[/url]"


That will stop them from breaking the frames.

I have that case sitting in my basement. there is sooooo much room in that case. You need a little wire management thugh, which aint that hard in that case. thats a perfect case to mod a watercooling kit into the top, seeing as there is room for two PSUs and the normal one sits lower than the top. you could fit the radiator right above/on top of the PSU and have fans blow out the back with a little modding. I'ma start working on one. I'm already working on 2 projects, why do I need another one?

yeah i've been thinking on water cooling for a long time now.. i've been working on the wire managment as well i took those pics when i put in the cooldrive and the power supply so i had a lot of cables to run in a short amount of time. I'll take better pics tonite and show you guys.. But thanx again for the input i appreciate it. the one thing that stinks though is that the case normally has a cross bar in the middle for support. i removed the bar cause it was just an eye sore. Im gonna have to reinforce the corners now...
