I've been lurking for a while, and this case contest has really spurred me into finally creating an account.
My pc consists of:
e6400@ 3.34 (sweetspot for core 1, though cpu#2 can hit 3.5 and be stable)
2gb of 667 mhz at 850 mhz
a 300 gb and a 40 gb
dvd burner (soon to get a sata dl)
last and least a 7600 gs (until my 7600gt returns from rma)
As you can see from pic number 4, i decided that the back plate of the mobo was getting pretty hot, and there was no way to dissipate that heat so i dremeled and added a couple of fans to pull hot air off the mobo. It culminated in a 5-8 degreee (celsius) difference which, was worth it.
Sorry about the mess around my room.
More on the cooling, i have four 90 mm fans in the front bottom to draw in cool dense air from close to the floor. To the left of my cpu cooler (big typhoon which can be found at newegg open box for ~25$) are 2 90 mm fans and a 120 mm. (Notice the duct work with clear packing tape lol).

Here's my entry:
CPU: Pentium D 830
CPU cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 6+
mobo: ABIT NI8 SLI
PSU: Thermaltake Purepower 680W
case: Antec P150
RAM: 2GB Mushkin 5300
video card: XFX & MSI 7800GTX in SLI
hd: 320GB & 80GB Seagate
sound: SB Audigy 2 ZS
optical: Pioneer DVD burner & Lite-On CD burner
My airflow is the stock 120mm fan that came with the Antec P150 case at the front, and a 92mm fan that I added. Airflow isn't the greatest because of all of the cables (no modular PSU ) and the smaller form factor of the case. I did what I could with the space that I had :P

OK my PEEPS here's the big announcement. First of all there were several people who really seemed to need a case which made the decision difficult.
Because I wanted to give away several cases and other stuff, I've decided to step-up donations from my "Lab" here at the East Coast, USA location of [M]. I will be giving away more review (with manufacturer's permission) and personal hardware in the near future, so stay tuned.
Please PM me or email me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to NZXT for supplying their product.
