That really is a great looking case, very professional looking dude!

8/10 from me...

... only a few things that have marked it down for me, and please don't take this personally, it's just my constructive criticism. A lot of people get their arse out about opinions after they've asked for them (not that I'm saying you are).

I think you should paint the DVD bezel, even though it works as it is, looking at the DVD drive on it's own makes it stand out a bit too much.

The other thing, and even though you've done an freaking excellent job on the cable management, which for me is one of the major, make or break factors in a PC on display - is the fact some of the coloured cables are taking away from the overall look.

Sorry if I've come across as an anally retentive, detail nazi-asshole, I just thought you might appreciate my explanation as to why I've given you 8/10.

Still one of the best looking cases in the gallery in my opinion.

Paint job is amazing and how long did it take you to figure out what you were going to do for the cable management. I have a coolermaster cosmos and my cable management sucks. Check it out on the first page its called "The Beast".

Oh yeah I gave you an 8/10.

I voted 5/10 because:

Looks good man, but wire managment is not detailed enough for my tastes ;) sorry I am a bit of a harsh critic
