This case was the IFRIT one that I posted earlier, but I made a custom paint inside the case, change the PSU and change one HDD, so I think It deserves a new post (and name).

Painted the interior with a shiny black paint, and flame red the drive bays.

Awesome case man! It looks clean and I like the colors. My only question is: can your hard drives be mounted the other way so that your cable's are not visible?

Thanx for the reply snapshot, glad you like it :)

Unfortunately nope, cannot place the HDDs in other direction, there's no space on the back to make the conections, It was a disappointment when I saw that I cannot make this trick, It was possible with my past Saggita II, I dunno why NZXT didn't implement this easy mod.

Clean build,, maybe a few pictures with the side off,, also your music will sound better with the sub of the floor.

Thx for the reply steelkane, also thx for the tip about the woofer position. Will take some pics with the side panel off for your pleasure, just give me some time (maybe a couple of days).

I like it! I have this case and just moded the interior with all gloss black paint, but was really torn between it and red. I like how the red turned out!

Updated!!

rearranged the HDDs positon like t77snapshot suggest me, was a little difficult but in the end I made it, now It looks more cleaner, also changed the bubble cathode's position and changed the bottom red cathod for a blue one, I like the contrast It does.

Added more shots of the case without the panel like Steelkane suggested.
