    The powder coating turned out really well. The RAM cooler looks great.

    Yeah! I paid 20€ for the powder coating case and accessories!

    With a very very good result!

    That's a pretty good price for powder coating.

    the electrostatic looks very good and it's pretty cheap too
    Here in Athens it costs 3~4 times that for almost the same parts
    very nice total black look so far m8
    keep it up

    1-2 suggestions
    -ditch the grills on the top... they have nothing to offer but noise
    -get yourself some black or other color anodized screws (other color for contrast maybe..)
    -please dont use those plastic tooless 5,25 CM crappy brackets

    great work, i'd suggest putting it at the bottom, maybe illuminate the res with some white LEDs, it'll look sick!

    Cool idea with placing the pump/res on the fan, won't it constrict air flow though?
