1. paint the inside of the case (i think black should be perfect)
2. hide cables a bit better (ie through the disks cage)
3. show us a few more pics (including the side panel).....

so we can suggest a couple of more ideas...

thx for appreciating..
well it's a cheapy USD42.80 (HKD330) which i bought last year and worth every penny according to my usage experience so far! especially for those who want to stick to air-cooling ATX case, but not sure if it avail in other countries..
it's GTR iCute type - S901/5BB
here's the link http://www.gtr.com.hk/
and i got confuse between SLI ing GTX285 or wait for GTX300 dual GPU cards?
any comment?

Its depend on you bro.. I think you should wait by the end of this year, then you can choose your upgrading.. i think by that time GT300 release, sure GTX285 will be cheap. GTX285 alone is a beast also, can play mostly all games at playable rates. that's in my opinion bro.. good luck.:D

The iCute

Very well done - I have the same case and HATED it. Very very neat job on the cable management and the paint job really lifts it...

I decided that to work with it I'd have to uber mod it - and that's what you've done...

Nice
