    Well my first build was into my thermaltake tsunami dream. It was good for storage and that but temps were getting very high and cable management was getting be a pain in the ass. .

    . So i swapped cases and my bro is getting the tsunami.

    I now have an Antec 900 gaming case tis lil bit heavier given that its made out of steel and the tsunami was made out of aluminium. But cable management, air circulation, driver management and the space is a lil better
    When i swapped cases i just shot everything in to be fair, so the cable management looked a bit like this a mess really lol.
    Ive got a new GPU and heat sink aswell ( thanks for clocker for the heatsink recommendation) i love the funky lil ram heatsink i didnt realise how much bigger the 8800 GT is was compared to my ATI sapphire X1550

    But ive now had a go at the cable management and also looked into better air circulation for my CPU. ive moved the HDD's down so they are now right beside the GPU. But now my CPU has air moving straight from the front of the case to the outside.

    cable management is still a bit bad but its much better than what is was before.
    But all is well in my new case and i love it, though it does suck up dust like a vaccum cleaner

    yerr they did, im at home atm and wif the tsunami case they were around 60-70 and sometimes my pc would just crash cos fo the heat. Now with the antec they are around 30-40. So a massive improvment on that part.
    When i added the new GPU obv added heat to the case and the tsunami wasnt dealing with it very well the antec is
