    I really liked that case when I reviewed one! Not too sure about the huge vent on the side though..

    Going to keep an eye on this, SFF mods are always interesting :)

    Got my HDD's today and installed them plus sum black thumb screws. Was going to install the fan controller but it has no screws with it so have to get sum.

    2x Western Digital 750GB SATA II 7200RPM 16MB Hard Drive's
    [​IMG]

    HDD locking brackets installed and in HDD bay. GREEN POWER.
    [​IMG]

    HDD's installed and thumb screws used.
    [​IMG]

    Inside of the case both HDD's installed.
    [​IMG]

    Thumb screws on the PCI slots.
    [​IMG]

    Both the Silverstone 120mm clear with blue led fans installed into front panel.
    [​IMG]

    Inside of case with fans installed. After i took this i started thinking the wires would be better on the other side closer to the 3.5" bay fan controller so i will be changing them round when i install the fan grills.
    [​IMG]

    INTERBLU so far.
    [​IMG]

    The top PCI slot still has a silver thumb screw in it for now because the black one was about 1.5mm bigger the the silver one and it wouldnt fit so will do sumthing to get it to fit soon.

    Got my UV blue cable sleeving kit also.

    Interesting. I have the exact same case and I was thinking of modding ideas. I think you'll inspire me.

    Just to let you all no I have been planning sum parts and things. ie: Flip the hdd's upside down and install coolers on both drives.

    Ordering sum parts this week so will have sum new photos and info soon.

    PS: Started using my tripod and my new lights setup in my room so will have nicer photos.

    Not out in NZ yet. and would say it will be a rippoff to buy over here.

    Thinking quad core socket 775, and get 1 kickass graphics card and ram.

    I think the i7 is to over priced at moment over here. Maybe I will update the setup in couple years 2 a matx i7. or newer.
