Build a wooden case for it! LOL. I've seen some pretty cool ones lately.

Venom...those are some awesome cases. Nothing finer than the workmanship from a wood working craftsman.

Those wood cases are awesome! They don't really work with the all black theme I'm going for though. Although I guess it would go with the wood grain on my card table until I get a real table... lol

Got the case today and have it all set up, this is a quick little machine that could be built fairly cheaply, it is also quieter than I expected. I think I'm going to use it as my main machine and load the i7 rig up with some virtual goodies to try and utilize it'* capabilities.

Everything is looking good so far. Case comes apart nice and easy.


Hard drive enclosure had to be moved over to make room for the graphics card, drilled some new holes to old it in place.


Had to modify this panel a bit to sit on top, the piece I took off was hitting the graphics card.


Much better.

Hehe, this one doesn't, graphics card aside it'* actually very efficient. The 850 watt power supply is way overkill, but it'* what I had. The main rig on the other hand.. that one is a breaker tripper if you don't have good wiring.
