NZXT H440
PSU = EVGA Supernova 750 B2
If you do this you need a SATA cable and a USB 3.0 to 2.0 (optional)

For front I/O:
Black = Power
Red = Hard drive
Green = LED
Blue = Reset (cant get this to work)

If you want more information let me know. This was my first experience building. It was very easy.
I loved the X51. I had no reason to change cases. It was quiet and did not run hot. I had it for 2 years and wanted a change. I also like to tinker. I will eventualy put it back together when I get more pieces.

I'm using the same GPU that came with the x51,gtx660, so it doesn't touch anything. My case doesn't have a hard drive light so I don't know what's doing.

Ok...I am going for it! I have ordered the NZXT Case and an EVGA PSU plus the bit I really wanted a Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980 GPU.

It was this or buy a new PC which with the latest specs I wanted was between £2100-£2600 (highest if adding a 2nd GPU).

I sure hope that the X51 Transplant to the new case goes well and I end up with an even better X51, even if it doesnt look like one anymore!

Hi had a question does your card also hit a capacitor on the board mine does so trying to figure out if its card design.

HUh i was afraid myself to move mine my tech told me it would not hurt anything been running fine all this time. i did not no they would move as mine looks like its surfaced mounted capacitor.
