Nice roomy case though. I had a heck of a time with the cables in my little CoolerMaster 335 case and all those power cords. That was the first time I had to remove the CPU HSF in order to swap the power supply. When I first started building IBM compatible computers, none of the CPU heat sinks had fans...that was a while back!

Haha wow. I remember my dad's first computer had a slot-loading Athlon 700 Mhz in his, but it had a fan on it.

I just got my Black Pearl in today. I was shocked, as I bought it only yesterday. I just went with their standard shipping, but it showed up next day. I love newegg and their strategic warehouse placements (their Memphis warehouse is only a few hours away). I got everything set up, but I'm still waiting for my longer SATA cables (I really need them), and my thermal compound. Here's a couple of teasers: (sorry, I don't have a fancy camera, just a 7.2mp point and shoot camera).

Believe it or not, I've still got a slot A 800mhz with an old DFI motherboard in use (occasional)

$160 isn't cheap on a college student's budget.

Yeah...I think I'll just settle for a Lian-Li mid-tower. How is the weight of the Black Pearl? Using a Antec P180 right now and goddamn that thing is heavy as hell.

Nice Culexor. I have a few suggestions for cable management. You already know about the SATA cables.



@Russel: Nice. My dad's is sitting in the attic lol.
