Performed Mods:
After the case was stripped down I used a 1/2 inch drill bit to drill about 15-20 holes in the bottom of the case for under the PSU so I can mount the PSU the way you see it for better cable managment and cooling the PSU. Then I sanded the metal down and removed all dust/dirt/oils..etc and used a White Primer. After the primer was dry I then Painted the inside and all the mesh a cherry red(glossy). I removed the extra piece of acrylic on the sidepanel that has the hole for the optional 120mm fan. I have no use for it and it makes the case look alot better that way. UPDATED WITH DUAL HIS IceQ4 Turbo Edition 4850's@ 775/1200 =]

I'm not a big fan of the Antec cases, but this has to be the nicest one I have seen!

Quick update guys.

I currently have 2 HIS IceQ4 Turbo edition HD 4850's installed. So far so good as performance goes. I'll post new pics later. Only thing I dont like about the new cards is the fan @ 100%.. sounds like my PC is trying to vacuum my floor from my desk.

well, it looks like I might have to post another case for the gallery. I have a new Cosmos S, CORSAIR HX1000W PSU and a smi-new EVGA GTX 280. I have been contemplating on painting the case interior, thing is.. this case is so nice @ stock.. I almost want to leave it the stock color and just polish it up till it shines a bit more. Or if I do paint it, it will be done right this time around.. Powder-coat FTW!! Im in the process of choosing th right water cooling parts for this system. As soon as i figure out the color of the fluid and tubing, thats when I will decide on the color of the paint and cathodes.
