    It's straight heatpipes... but if you have PSU air blowing over it, it'll be fine.

    Keep us posted on the build. What you making it out of?

    just a thought...you could mount fans on the bottom of the case if you added feet to the case
    that way you could cool the hard drives from beneath (so long as they dont sit on the base of the case, and you wont be able to see yet another ugly fan.

    you also forgot to put USB/audio jacks/firewire on the front of the case for ease of use
    especially good if the user has a usb key or headphones/microphone

    i liked the idea someone had for the LCD...i think it was Random Murderer

    theyr good because you can integrate them into overclocking/fan control/clock/networking
    or at least thats what (digicube?/dice?) computers did with their small form factor designs

    pinchy has an lcd in his computer that allows him to do all that (it came with the system)
    and it works off a simple dial and a few buttons. The dial itself is used as a power on button when you apply pressure to it. Quite a nice, simplistic device with minimal controls but maximum functionality.

    because you can.
    why build a custom pc case?
    why mod a computer case that looks and works fine?
    why do anything?
    because you can.

    Because certain people are creative, feel pride in their work, have the tools, have the ability and have the knowledge that it costs less

    Because "fine" is a relative term.
    A pommies "hot" is an Aussies "warm"

    Different people have different equipment and different performance/visual appeal expectations. Just like my preference in cars is different to yours.
    You might enjoy a case for its performance. While I might enjoy it for its looks.
    Preference.

    External stimuli affects us in different ways. Some people DONT want to do ANYTHING.
    Others want to have sex more often than they breathe air.
    Both have their advantages :D.
