    Default Before...And After (Fixed my Wiring)

    Ok, This took 3 hours, but I finally finished, I think its definetly worth it! My CPU temp is 30c constant now, before it would be around 31-32c. My case temp however, is much better. Before it was 30c w/ Side off, now its 27c with side on! You won't believe how much dust came out of the computer, it was so bad I had to bring in the vacuum and went through 3/4 of a can of compressed air to get it cleaned out (and its still not perfect!) anyways, on to the comparison....

    Quite an improvement imo, especially considering I do have a ton of wires to deal with!

    That's a huge improvement. I'll be doing the same thing myself once I get my new machine.

    How's you know? ;) I can't do any better in terms of appearance, mobility, and airflow for $26. Plus it'd be nice to actually have it since I've recommended it a good 20 or so times to people, though no one has complained about it so far.

    I'll be getting everything after the holidays since I'm just about guaranteed to have enough money by then.

    The only compliant I have about Raidmax is the Finish on some of them... It needs a good coat of wax so it dosent get a huge ugly scratch, expecialy if you take it to friends places or tounaments.

    Well there PSU's arent the best either, but you know that already, and you know better than to get one with a PSU. Also thier fans the come with the cases have a tempature probe... I find them anoying, but it is easly dealt with(cut, heat shrink, solder)
