I just bought this case with a new Core i7 rig.
I want to mod it, to the slightest degree.
A few questions:
1. Cable management. As of now, I have the front panel connectors on their own "lane" with twist ties going to the proper connections, then I routed the power cables around or over them. Space was somewhat an issue, because the back panel needed to have pressure applied to put it back into place. I hear a couple people just hide all the cables behind it. It may seem silly, but how would I do that the "correct" way? Just stuff them in the back? Right now the unused cables are twist tied, then twist tied again to form a huge group hiding in the HD bay at the bottom.
2. Fan controllers. I plan to buy this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811999171
Zalman Black 6CH Fan Controller. Will there be proper power going to each fan, with enough control to the speeds of the fan, as well as still being able to relay the information in programs like speedfan?
3. Cold cathode. I plan to get a simple red Logisys foot long. they have the crappy pci switch. Is there any alternative to just have it be sound activated without that ridiculous dongle?
That is it for now.
