Now your making me tear apart my build to paint the case. It makes the case look 100 times better.

Not sure I agree about removing the HD case as i have 4 HD's in there, but I still like how you did it. Very clean work.

Paint looks really clean and smooth. I painted mine with a metalic grey metal flake. Cable management is really clean also. Go to the automotoive store and pick up some different size black wire loom for those sata cables, psu wires etc, trust me it will look awesome. If you only have 1 hard drive I think removing the hard drive bays is a really good idea. Plus it would be a great area to put a water pump and reservoir to really show it off. I have my pump sitting in the 5 1/2 drive bays to shorten the waterloop along with a filltop port instead, but im only cooling my cpu.

for now I don't need liquid cooling. in the future maybe... for the wire loom I tried once but without success. must try again.
thanks for the vote :D
