Why black hole? Because I can't get any performance out of it... It's 7 years old and has problems with booting up, but with that age I won't complain. When it works I can play some games on it, or even stream sometimes...

The cable-management on this case is impossible, but I did what I could.

There is a small fan mounted to the chipset, because it was overheating, now it won't get hotter than 45C. A 12cm fan has been added at the back to help keeping the system cool (some sensors still show ~70C when on load).

I've achieved ~10fps avg in valley benchmark on high, I'll try running ultra (:P) and publish the results too
