    Thanks!

    I will probably change the bottom panel, putting a 90 degree bend in it just past where the tubing comes up. This will show the rad, but more importantly, give air back to the HDD cage. The panel doesn't affect temperatures to any of my components other than the drives, which get robbed of air by the bottom rad.

    I fixed the bottom panel. It's not centered on the fans, but it follows the HDD cage, and doesn't look too badly. Temperatures dropped 10 degrees on the drives, bringing them back to normal, with my Samsung at 25 and my WD Blacks at 34.

    Looks like I need to give it a better cleaning, the pictures show off the grime from cutting and bending.

    One of the few things left to do is a rad grill for the back panel

    I finally took the plastic off the brushed aluminum. Now it's soon to be covered in smudges from my greasy mitts. :D

    Thanks. I think I'm going to post it in the ATM thread, as well.

    Move the 24pin up to the next grommeted cabling hole and then move the PCIe powers on the top video card to the hole the 24 pin was in"??"

    It sure would. I actually had it that way, but moved holes to intentionally show off the cables. When I get tired of them, I'll minimize their appearance.
