Could you get a small shelf under the desktop and slide it in under it? instead of on the floor.

Mind you if you have it on the floor it is a good idea to have it on a hard surface if you have carpets even so a small board with castors would make it easy for you to move it around and make cooling a lot better
I could if I didn't have any legs. The knee hole of the desk already has a small sub woofer in there. The remaining space is for my legs and feet. Everywhere else has drawers in the way. Trust me, I know the room and there just isn't room for anything longer.
Ah look Lady Fitz mate I was not having a go just some logic mixed with my warped sense of humour sorry if I upset you.
I don't indulge in any behaviour that would deliberately upset anyone and if I did sound a bit facetious or patronising when I posted it was not meant to be that at all - just as I said as above. Life is way too short to have conflict of any sort and well perhaps I should have just not said anything eh?

Yeah, sorry about my extended absence. Hopefully nobody was loosing sleep over where I disappeared to. I was always checking back in on occasion, but found that there was SOOO MUCH to post about on the 8 forums, that I couldn't handle any more tech speak (or drama).

Wow... Look away for a day and the thread grows by two more pages. Lol.

I would've done that, but unfortunately the polystyrene packaging didn't seem to be the original.. I did get it second hand and it was still packed pretty well, but I was a bit scared of letting it fall. Not sure if you know or not (some people here already do) but I can't use my left arm, so I do everything one-handed.

Not by default, but I do plan to mod a few fans for that exact purpose. I'm thinking two switches, one to control all the lights, and another to completely turn off certain fans. But since adding the Antec tri-speed 120mm fan that the seller sent with the case, I now have two white lights (200mm), a green one (CPU) and a red one (120mm). It's quite a light show at the moment.

Looks like I missed a lot!
@ Zalith, great case. That rig of yours is turning into some heavy duty piece of equipment. Congrats!
@ Cranky, you really went all out on that case. It is looking very nice, but follow Paul's advice and tips on wiring to improve air flow and keep your high performance parts as cool as possible.

Anyhow, I thought I'd share what I'm putting together for a very good friend whom after seeing my rig asked if I could build something similar for him, but with some extra customizations. Of course I was more than happy to oblige!!!!

...
Thanks, my baby really is at long last living up to her name, I've used the same computer name for more years than I can remember. I love that design you did though, the black/white/red combo really works nicely!

Haha... Is it really? I actually surprised myself with getting a white case, I never thought I would. Actually, most of my friends thought that too, especially after seeing the (cheap) black/green XFX attempt I had before. Honestly though, it grew on me very fast... Like, 15 seconds after getting it out of the box and I was in love.


Edit: Awesome... My 1111'st post. And yes, that was a very random edit.

I would never go so far as to say they should be banned. However, I think there is an unrational desire out there for those who want super powerful computers to equate the size of the case to the power and performance contained within. For others, they really do want to install 15 hard drives and run 24 case fans. However, for many people, we won't ever venture anywhere near that far. A slightly smaller case that can be more easily moved around and tucked out of site can often be advantageous and doesn't necessarily make the computer less powerful or impressive looking. I don't want anybody to think that they simply cannot build their own powerful computer simply because they don't have the physical space to store a jumbo sized case.

Yeah, I have 3 desktops on my desk at work, so I don't have room for 3 HAF X's. But I do have room for the Antec 300 and it's big enough for my needs. Although admittedly, could use more cable management features.

My Antec Two Hundred V2 had even fewer cable management features. I had to add four grommetted cable management holes at the bottom of the MOBO, do a bit of metal massaging elsewhere, and wound up making custom PSU cables so I could cram everything in without the cables obstructing air flow.

my home machine is in an Antec P180 case, and while it's got good airflow and plenty of power management features, it's a little bigger now that I would like. I'd shrink it to about 60% of it's full size if I could. I only run 1 single network card (nVidia 570GTX), and 2 hard drives (1 SSD, and 1 standard mechanical drive). I boot only Windows 7.
