Notice the power supply falling out because the clamp this case uses to hold it in is too far out because the PSU is too small. Then you've got a hacked molex 5V and ground going to a keyboard encoder at the bottom, missing an optical drive, a 4k-something RPM hard drive with a whopping 4 gigs/8 because it isn't formatted correctly, and overall crappy components in general.
Hey is that a gateway I see there? I've got the same case style on one of my older rigs.

Update! New stuff!







Sorry for blurry pics, using a cam one handed is not easy.

Heheheh I'll try! This latest PSU is a much better brand than the others I burned out, so hopefully I won't need the increased airflow.

Even if it is a better PSU, good airflow will benefit your entire system.

Oh yeah I know that. I'm going to get some more fans to help. This case has a thing on the inside of the panel that's like an air duct to the CPU. Would it be wise to install a fan between the panel and the duct thing to pull/push air?
