Default Finished my first major case mod.

I've got a Rocketfish (LianLI) full tower case that had no cable management, so I made some myself.

Since the first picture was taken, I got rid of the tracer ram because of an issue with other ram I bought on ebay (long story). Anyway, I've got 4GB of Kingston 1066 now, got rid of the plastic case on the rosewill heatsink and added a cold cathode.

Let me know what you guys think and what could be changed.

BEFORE:


AFTER: (i realize there is a scuff and shiny spot above the cpu, working to get that fixed)

I should have bought one of these when I had the chance

Nice work though, gotta love the extra room in that case. I suggest getting some rubber edging for the holes so you don't damage wires.

Cabbs, can you just get that at a hardware store? I was thinking of getting some, just wasn't sure exactly what it was called.

Thanks T-Man.

I think it's nice. Do that to my case, I have all the tools.

And a quick friendly reminder, please pay attention to what section your posting your thread in.

Ya, sorry. I figured since it wasn't a question it'd go in social. My bad.

Thanks for the comments everybody.

You probably could, just tell them what you need it for. If not, look at stuff like this : http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g44/...ing-Page1.html
