Storm Trooper (first build)

Yus I know I know, a mATX and full size case. First build and made a mistake :/

This is my first build so it's nothing special but I do have another build planned for this winter. Sorry about any dust, I originally built it about 9 months ago, since I have changed some fans, graphics and sleeved some cables.

Intel i5 2500k
XFX 7950 DD
ASUS
Maximus IV GENE-Z/GEN3
8GB Mushkin Blackline Frostbyte
OCZ ZT 750W
Mushkin Chronos 120GB
WD Caviar Blue 640GB
CM Storm Trooper
H100i
(push pull)

I actually want to remove the drive so I can fit a 3rd AF120 but I've not been able to find another mesh bit to cover the empty gap.

Sounds like a nice idea, make sure you post pics of it if you do that as I wouldn't mind seeing

Out of interest what braided cables do you have. I've got the same psu and I'm in the market for some but not sure which make will fit the ocz sockets.

nice looking rig. I sort of like the tiny motherboard in a strange way!
