So much of a difference when a case caters to modern tech (ie..half of the interior isn't taken up with 3.5 and 5.25in bays.

Yes I know i need longer cables, that'll have to come later. I relocated the pc to be on top of my desk. so the routing is different

I have a Corsair carbide 600C and can’t see myself getting rid of it anytime soon. Excellent cooling imo.

I tried a new thermal paste and moved the cooler around quite a bit, was super worried something was wrong when I first fired it up and it was idling around 55

Thankfully once everything settled, i'm getting nice frosty temps.

Yikes that old case. That's a bizarre thing. Someone should have told the designer when to stop.

haha, it was a great case for the time. Quick swap HDD bays, tons of 5.25's for accessories. Lots of space and cutouts for watercooling.

It's just that the times have changed and it's just a bit too big.

I'm on my phone and looking at the first picture I legitimately thought you had your tower sitting on a stack of folded towels and next to a microwave. It wasn't til I saw the second pic I realized that everything was the case lol
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Actually, you know what? It looks like a prop from any 1980s sci fi program. Especially anything the BBC would have made. I can understand that aesthetic at least.

Now you can put the old case in your back yard and use it as a shed to store your lawn mower.
