Just installed my Bad Axe 2 mobo into my Akasa Mirage and wanted to share it with the population, was just too good a pic not to show off :D

Ahh, nice.

Where's the pic with all the components & cables installed! Tidy cables & creating airflows is the artistic bit! (I don't get out much...)

Update

Got my PSU, HD's and Memory installed today and thought i would share the view. Man i love SATA cables :D

Very neat so far, just a CD, FD and GPU to go and no more worrying about cables.

Final Build Pics berfore the 8800gtx goes in next week

Decided to add another 80GB sata just for the OS and leave the 2 320GB drives in raid 0 for the games etc.....

Question? I had to install the DDR2 in the dimm 1 slots as i couldnt fit the 120mm akasa fan on the scythe in the place i wanted it.. i assume it should still run as normal?

True, since looking at your case I've been looking on various websites at cases almost convinced myself to upgrade mine :o

Go on you know you want to :D

I was originally going for the Eclipse/Mirage myself but will now go for the Silverstone TJ-09 for an extra £80 on top (blame peer pressure from friends!)
