Some great tips there, I might have to pick up a dremel, I dont have one. I don't know if the rack will stay or go, I kind of like it, but I am tempted to drill out the rivets and move it back a bit so it would be possible to put a 140mm or 160mm rad up front, then another 120 or 140mm rad on that bottom fan. Granted removing the rack would allow a 240mm rad to go below. That or I could cut out the bottom few HDD spots so I could fit a 230mm rad down ther and retain some HDD storage.
The acrylic idea is awesome, didn't even think about that. Then could place some lighting above and below the acrylic and a shroud around them so only the HAF lights up. Fan grills I got to think about, I really like how they look, but if I could find something that looked better in their place, then I would go for it. Once again thanks for those tips, really gives me some direction, also some more news about parts on the way, I took a big hit on my wallet today
**EDIT** Now I'm back thinking about dremels and such, and surfing amazon looking at them. Any pointers on what too look for here or some good links?
