Just fitted a new CPU, mobo, memory and PSU. All other components were from my last system and the case I have had for 6yrs and has gone through 3 builds, it's lasted very well. Difficult to tidy up the wiring in in mid size tower as there's very little room, this is the best I can get. The power cable by the ram slots will be tidied up again, can't plug it into my second DVD-RW in the middle as this is an IDE DVD-RW and the mobo has no IDE connector, has a floppy one though
Didn't take it out as I would have had a big hole, need to pickup a second SATA DVD-RW or maybe a Blu-ray drive to fill in the hole
Easiest upgrade ever, I went from a Q6600, 8gb DDR2 and DFI X48 mobo to a Core i7 2700k, 16gb DDR3 and an AsRock P67 mobo. Plugged it in to test and Windows 7 Pro x64 booted up and installed the drivers, never needed to reload Windows and the new system works flawlessly as do all my programs, hell of a speed increase and saved me hours or reinstalling my stuff
Just picked up the Cooler Master 212 Evo cooler to replace the pathetic Intel one. At stock speeds, the Intel cooler idled at around 41c and and at full load with Prime95 hit around 88c , the new one idles at around 37c and at load 64c, much better

Fixed the exhaust fan of my upcoming FT02 build:
Just bought a fractal design ARC case today. I really wanted a "fat" case for me to be able to hide the wires without a lot of work. It was quite a breeze to work in, and i really liked the design. Here is a few photos of it as it stands and i still have a few cables to hide a bit better but im happy for now.

I decided I wanted my pc to freeze... so i purchased two of these bad boys but when i first turned my pc on, it crashed lol.... Maybe sucking too much juice? Thank goodness for a fan controller.
Latest build with Corsair Obsidian 650D. Cleanest and tidiest build I've ever done, case design made it easy :)
Corsair make some good products, especially their cases...
@Foodstampz, loved the Ultrakraze fans on WC rad, hated the noise.
I havent tried these ones on the h50 but I do have the ultrakraze that pushes like 80-100cfm on there now. Needless to say it's loud, but no more than my 470 @ 75% fan speed (im folding)
This case makes me really consider going full water cooling though simply because it has the room to do so unlike my old case.
Here's my new build
