Another kickass computer system! How much of this is mod vs pre-fab?

Wow looks amazing.

You should post this to the user "emeek" or "applesoldier" (same guy) apple fanboy on youtube who thinks the stock apple case is godlike and PC case modding is for lamers. This should put him in his place :P

There's hardly anything better at the moment that's worth the upgrade, snobby pizza.

Nothing good to say then don't say it at all. I'm sure it's a better system than most.

I think that's a cardreader Grayson :)

Really cool build btw, the whole theme looks to be build around the H50 and it's beautiful. I like how spacious it is, it would be too wide for my desk but it's a piece of art on its own :).

Mod wise I just painted the whole thing flat black and double sided tape stuff to hide cables using antec 1200 and 900 bay covers. I did redo the top window, changed the acrylic since it was used and all scratched up, put some u channel and put hex screws everywhere.

MountainMods.com have an insane choice of case parts but if you order something big they want you to use UPS and since UPS does not have any class they will charge you an insane amount of border fees.

Be sure to check out the vids I put up for a list of stuff I did to the case :P

Well I ditched the card reader (lol@floppy) now I double sided an external one under my desk running to a USB hub that is double sided taped on the back of the desk... I double tape everything, even the back of my desk is cable managed like crazy.

Looks good! With a monster case set up like that, you ever thought about going to full water-cooling? :P

I would like to do a full water cooling setup but now I am paying rent and I need a 2TB hard rive so it's just a matter of gathering money and resisting to upgrade anything else lol.

Looks awesome. Water cooling would be cool but it's not essential by any means. I've considered doing it, but IMO it's not worth the money unless you're doing crazy benchmarking or something.

You have a beautiful looking system blueweb! The LED case fans really do it for me. Very clean and professional. It should be a research lab or something like that :)
