    I gave you a 7 for the modding and nice shinny paint job! ah, I forgot to take in the top blowholes good job on them.. you kept a record of temps before and after? Im sure there will be a huge difference.

    I'd give it about a 5 if I were to vote(but I wont do that). It looks like you used electrical tape to "sleeve" your PSU cables. Those blowholes are also very uneven, use a holesaw next time.

    The paint job looks like it was done decently from what I see, but the pictures aren't very good and I can't tell if the paint is uneven or if those are just smudges. I also hate those Powmax cases(and most other cheap cases).

    by the way... my wires are raped by black duct tape ;-]

    Awesome paint job; the electrical tape used to wrap the wires isn't good for this case or any case, IMO. It actually makes your wire management look worse than it already is (no offense). Use zip ties instead. Some drimmeling can be done if needed. You spent the time to make the paint very nice, now spend just a little extra to make the wire management better. Your air flow would be much better as a result! I'll save my vote.

    All the more reason why you should take a little more time to make those wires better.

    EDIT: Also, it looks like the case has all the holes already there for you...

    ill give you a 7 , but if you were going to use tape on your wire you should have used red tape at least not black

    hint: autozone has 10 feet of red wire loom for 5.99 plus tax if you dont have the time to heat shrink
