    Ive got lots of Green braiding and I shall braid all of it tomoro, i have ordered a new case aswell along with some new uv cathodes as my current ones are losing their brightness - http://www.thermaltake.com/xaserCase/tsunami/bwa/bwa.htm

    My current system is:

    AMD 64bit 3000+
    DFI lanparty nforce4 mobo Pci-e
    ATI x800 256mb
    1gig Corsair xms 3200 Ram
    Tagen 480Watt psu
    80gig Sata seagate barracuda (soo to be 3, set up in raid)
    hyper 6 heatsink

    Braiding up tomoro, case arrives on thurs.

    Two things:
    1st: What did you to that poor case? Did you throw it out on the highway? :eyebrow:
    2nd: Nice choice with your new case. I've got this. :D

    glowey!
    well, hardware looks good, and the case seems to have what I'd call a "good flashy" style to it (throwing a bunch of colors in mixed together fairly well)

    Hey again, slight update.

    Ive just spent all morning (3 hours) braiding the PSU (*evils psu with to many wires and connectors*)

    Next up is to braid everything else but i will wait until tomoro for my case to arrive.

    As for what i did with my Case, I go to alot of LAN's, my mate has one roughly once a month. so my case gets moved alot and banged around, this case is a year old so i didnt really care as i needed a new one. the side window also got broken so i just took it off.

    So hopfulyl it will be nice, neat and complete on friday. I get 2 more 80 gig satas then (ma bday) so im goning to set them up in striping RAID.

    Thanks for all comments :thumb:

    Hi, i havnt been able to do much as ive been really busy with very VERY important things (alton towers + my 18th birthday :D ). I will be completing the braiding today and then i can start with the cable sorting.

    I still havnt got my Uv cold cathodes from ebuyer, they seem to be getting worse and worse, ive had a few probs with orders from there lately.

    ok well here are the pics (click for larger image)

    case before = mess

    [​IMG]

    my Fan controller problem, i fixed it with some good old tape
    [​IMG]

    I took the blue leds off of the rear fan as im a UV kinda guy and they down out the UV. was a simple un-solder job.
    [​IMG]

    Oh the niceness. i tried to hide most of the wires but i also wanted some shown so it didnt look to empty. I really like the set of wires coming down the central bit. I took off the side fan as i didnt like it and i dont need it. without the fan though the metal grill wouldnt stay on and it looks stupid without it. so i drilled holes in the back of these plastic uv reactive studs i had and use them as a sort off bolt and it worked well.

    I tried taking a pic in the dark so you can see it glow to the UV but my camera is crappy :(. il borrow my dads one (which takes UV pics really well) at the weekend. i might aswell show you the crappy pic it took :D
