    How are your temps with all that goodness stuffed in there? Its hard to make a HTPC look clean, yours looks great.

    I'll get a picture up of the temps. They are very good, the case has decent airflow, though I'm sure that all goes away if it's stuck in a television stand.

    Exactly 9 inches. Btw, the case is on sale for 39.99 free shipping + a $10 dollar rebate for a total of $29.99. Everyone should get one for that price! :D

    Did you use a blue LED 80mm fan in the front? or a cathode or something or is that just from 120mm in the back?

    I just got mine all put together except I'm waiting for a cpu to get here..Hope it's here tomorrow..

    Your right at that price everyone should get this case It was a total pleasure to use this case..
    bgears put a lot of thought into the design..Such a clean design If I'd of known it was this nice I would have paid $100 easy...

    How do u cut plastic so clean and join them tidy?

    Hi erocker
    Admirable case. It's always my favorite ones a case mod with plastic glass. I want to mod my first one with the same material. But I don't know how to cut them clean or join them. Also need some tool idea that you used in modding. Some close shot of joints will help me for sure. Any idea and knowledge will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
