Project Vulcan 7 days later updated pics

Project Vulcan

This will be my main Gaming rig that travels to about 10-12 lan parties a year. It a micro atx case theme Black and Orange,

Some of my concerns was the dual 120 radiator. it doesnt fit any where in the case. not yet any ways (dremal time). Air flow was another concern. But i finally came up with a pretty simple solution, mount the raditor on the botton and have air blowing in from the top and through teh bottom. The Mb has been staying at a pretty constant 30c on the test bench for about a month. I will aslo be adding soem arylic ilumminated panels and case feet.

I am pushed on time on this one and have about 10 days to complete before I take it to a Lan party on the 11th . So get ready for metal & plastic to fly !!!!

Part list


1 NZXT Vulcan Case


1 EVGA Micro atx Sli MB
2 EVGA GTX 280s

That's a case I'd least likely think someone to mod, though it has a certain HAF/Scoutness to it in my opinion...

Looking very nice mate
