Started this like over a year ago so some stuff isn't top notch, but should still be a good machine.

I've decided to go the old fasion classic way and build my case with a look inside rather then something insane like the Duke nukem plexi lol. I don't have time or money to build something that creative.

Now it will look different once I'm done but you get the idea with no flash and stuff lights off will look darker with maybe red LEDs coming up through the skeletons. I found all this stuff at the dollar store and came up with thie design haha, so it's not bad for the amount of money put in.

not sure if going to do anything with outside of case or something up top? or just do the design on the bottom or "scene" what ever you wanna call it lol. there was many ways I could use the Skulls and bones but this one so far seemed to be the best. I still can move stuff around its not glued down.

Any input would be nice or ideas or what ya think. I know skulls aren't everyones thing but its mine haha just felt to fit the computer it will be a beast in the end.

Thanks,

I love this!!!!! Skulls are my favorite . . . .have six on the shelf right here. Doing a build in a clear case is a true challenge - thanks for rising to the occasion.

I used to own that very case.. I hated it, would scratch and scuff so easily. So my hat is off to you for finding a cool way to use it.

really? thats cool I bought this years ago but once I had it built nothing was really around didn't move it either so theres not to many scratches on it for being 7 years old lol it is hard to keep it clean and scratch free.
but I realized I should of put somthing in behind the case when I took the pictures
a piece of construction paper or something so everything stood out better cause i have speakers and walls and junk in behind it so hard to see it all lol.
Thanks for all the input :) I haven't touched it since I put the pics on. Might order some leds for the bottom (even though crosshairIII prob has 10 on its own lol) at the same time I need to wait on my graphics card get some money and buy it so I know how much more room I have to work with :P.
Thanks guys!

Thanks, just checked ebay for some found couple that will prob fit below the bed of bones. I bought some cheap holloween decoration and it was a grey chain gonna see what i can do with it maybe around the edges of the case like a outline, not sure yet lol.
So next Step is red LEDs, chain, and shop for liquid cooling.
was hoping to order my RAM this weekend but paycheck was little short haha.

Thanks for the input everyone :)

Got my ASUS Monitors for my Eyefinity setup 21.5" LED 1080p

Just a reminder this system was built on an average budget so its not top of the line

still won't have them in perfect placement till i get it up and running lol so there kind of just roughly setup..
power supply is ordered and should be here shortly. just need some case fans and I'd be set :D

My PSU came today :D I know its over-kill for my setup but this thing has a 7 Year warrenty, so I figure get a big one now in case I'll need it down the road. if I add more, changes, or future upgrades.
It should be all together soon then I'll just pick away at it once its up and running haha.

P.S.>> I'm not sure if I'm posting my pictures in the best way? so if theres a way to make it easier or less cluttered please let me know.
Thanks,

oh lol i saw the AX series everyone said was better but it was either 850w or 1200w there wasn't one in between even though i could of gotten away with using the 850 but the next build maybe I'll switch over haha

Now, the last thing I would do, I know you didn't ask, LOL

Pickup a 240 Edge kit from Swiftech and water cool the processor. The clear tubing with their green fluid would look sick as hell in that case with the green eyed skull. Besides those clear cases are known for pretty poor air cooling.

You generally can't go wrong with Corsair (although I recommend ALWAYS reading reviews of the specific product because nobody is perfect). I think I have 2 Corsairs, 2 Antec Signature's, and a Thermaltake ?Toughpower Grand? right now.

Sounds good, I was looking at some liquid cooling kits but wasn't sure what one to pick.
It would be in month or two with christmas around the corner and bills to pay lol, but its my next step and a SSD.

I was worried about the cooling in this case. It has 6 fan spots but they are only 80mm, so I'm not sure if it can make bigger holes to insert larger fans or try and find a newer see-through case with larger fans...so still working some stuff out lol my main thing is to get it operational at stock fans get some games in and tweak some stuff.

Do you think the six 80mm fans will keep it cool enough until I get liquid cooling?
I am in a finished basement so It's pretty cool down here, room temp wise.

Thanks Kipper and everyone for the input. Now I have all sorts of senerios i can work with haha

I might try to incorporate this some how on my case its the Black Label Society (copyright & All rights reserved) Skull Symbol I had, just not sure to put it on the side in the middle of the case? or on the front where my 5.25" drives would be? (but I wont have any drives in it just an external blueray when i do need discs..) or inside my case below the harddrive facing out towards the side where you would be looking in? if that makes sense..

P.s. does this count as spam? me uploading each time i buy a part? lol or is this considered a worklog..cause if not let me know I'll be happy to change what I'm doing if needed.

Got my fans in it was a challenge trying to go from old small 80mm hole to the new 120mm and have everything lined up but oh well lol made the grills out of an old candle stand and didnt have a metal brake so the bends aren't perfect but not bad for by thumbs lol
