Well, if I can add my 2cents, I would say if you want to improve the "look" of the pc, without dropping loads of cash on new Motherboard or memory or chassis and so on, i'd say get a modular PSU, they arent too expensive, and from personal experience (my previous chassis didnt have wire holes or hiding options ither) it makes a huge difference when you don't have to add wires you don't need in your chassis, this will help with the inside look allot.

And just think, You made your build look this good without a fully modular psu, just imagine how awesome it will look with one that has fewer wires?

Other then that, maybe add some lights?
L.E.D. fan My pc sits inside a compartment which should be shown in one of my pics above. I don't know how much the lights would show...
Also, my power supply is still only about 4 months old and don't want to buy a new one. It is just a 380 watt because I'm trying to make sure my pcs not use a bunch of electricity. I really like my psu because it is 80 plus bronze energy savings.

Aah,okay, well then if its hidden anyway I'd say its pretty much done. And the psu's i am refering to is atleast bronze,if not silver or gold, so it would be an upgrade, but not needed if you never show your pc insides

WEI are just numbers for bragging rites. At the end of the day all that matters is that you are happy with it.

New cooler installed

Hey y'all,

Got my EVGA Superclock cooler installed so that I can start my overclocking adventure.

Here's a few shots of the stock cooler and the new cooler.

Thank ya, thank ya verry much.

Yep, it's a 120. Works great and it doesn't get too loud when maxed out. From the way some people were talking, I was expecting it to sound like a Dust-buster (got a Socket A cooler that requires earplugs).

Results of the overclock are in the "Post your Overclock" thread.

Yup, its going to look so hot! I am also think of swapping the white LED's for blue ones, just at the bottom, the white ones dont give off enough light.
