Case Upgrade

A friend gave me his old case so it was time for a very big upgrade.  I moved from a Thermaltake V3 Black Edition to a Phanteks Enthoo Pro.

My old Thermaltake next to the new Phanteks.


Literally a big upgrade.

The crowded mess inside the Thermaltake.  I clearly running out of room.

The GTX 650 was overdue for a good cleaning.  Its only been 3 or 4 years.

Switched to the Phanteks case.  Not perfect cable management but much neater than before.  An extension or a longer cable for the graphics card would help.

A closeup before all of the fans were added.

Back side of the motherboard.  This side allows for access to the hard drives and SSDs.

Time for a test.  The system properly booted and nothing blew up.

A blue LED Corsair AF120 fan and Artic fans.

Nicely lit up by dual Corsair fans, one at the top and one at the bottom.
