I don't know what all the downvotes are about. I'm just going to have to assume that there is a rampant pandemic of extra chromosomes going around. Unjustified nay-saying aside, that's a very nice mod. Had an Antec 900 myself for many years, would've looked a lot better painted like yours. The internal fans and the cable management are solid.

I voted 8/10 because:

I think some are being to critical this has a really nice design and a lot of work placed in to it.

Good...but...

I haven't voted yet although it will be positive I reckon it looks great, what I would like is some more info.
What is the case? (*Notes before and after pics would be cool for all builds)
What are the fans, what was your design theory as to where/how many you placed, was the power supply originally cased/extended like that ect? How much airflow do you get and out of the top or back ect? (In my opinion you dont want an exhaust fan at the rear if you are venting from the top they will fight each other for airflow and mess up the whole caboodle, also the psu should be set to suck from the bottom rear and blow up wards for good airflow BUT as it produces a lot of heat NOT a good idea which is why they are normally at the top.
I know a bit about flow engineering as I used to design modified cylinder heads and am a HVAC (heating/Ventilation/Air-con) engineer so very interested.
Love the colour scheme (reminds me of some 'under the hood' work I and others have done) wiring looks neat/hardly seen.
(ps Hi all FIRST ever post lol)
