    it depends on weather or not you have positive or negative pressure in your case if its negative it will provide a bit better airflow but also introduce more dust in your system if your not using something like mesh bracket covers. if its positive pressure it will decrease the pressure in your case and could potentially improve airflow over certain components it would be more of a trial and error sort of thing at the point, you also would not have to worry about introducing more dust if its positive airflow. if you have neutral pressure in your case it could turn negative by opening more "vents"

    Hey guys about my Antec case earlier what would you think if I paint it metallic blue and add some white stripping to make like an old musle car? Remove the optical drives and put a single black one dvd-rw ?

    Yes, stripes do make it go faster :). Put in a black, or a Metallic blue drive if you can get one, then paint the drive metallic blue if it already isn't, then paint the platter white, that would look sweet.

    I just installed Xubuntu 12.04 LTS in it. I'm satisfied up to now but I will look what it makes on the long term. It's faster than XP home at first try. Let's see.

    I recommend you use Debian or atleast switch ubuntu over to XFCE or LXDE

    It will be less bloated.
