Well I'll be damned ! You managed to breath new life into a dying chassis :) See if you can install the two (92mm?) exhaustfans in the back, along with a better performing CPU heatsink - that will complete the build !!! /spaz.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':spaz:' />

I did add two fans in the back, 3-pin powered from motherboard. I'm only going to be using it as a bench machine for my new little PC repair business, mostly data recovery and things like that. It's an air-conditioned office so I'm not too worried about heat. I have an H80 on my game machine at home. Main thing on this was connectivity and being able to get things done quickly. I just recovered 3,000 Outlook Express emails from a drive that had been formatted, and the speed was nice to have. I put the GTX 480 in it because it was only $219 from TigerDirect on sale.

If you notice, the power supply slot in that is for a "CPX" Antec form factor which they made a while ago. I had to get the adapter plate from Antec directly (pictured). They searched their warehouse and found one, then sent it to me for free (thanks Antec).

(Little trivia here on the "CPX" PSU form factor).

Setup looks nice. Add some cheap decent heatsink to it and then we're talking :D

RMA broke my 580 SLI. Now I have a 7970 and a GTX 580 gathering dust, looking for a buyer.
