    Those sleeving kits are good, the AC Ryan sleeve is very good quality I have found. Does it come with the pin removal tools?

    Very good.I like the cover for the drive cage.

    Only one suggestion.You should turn the exhaust fan (clear) so that it pushes air to the outside of the case.I think you could get lower temps that way.

    I agree with Spyrious, turn the rear fan around and make it an exhaust. That way all the hot air coming off the TRUE will be expelled.

    Looks fantastic though mate, Excellent work of the jacks for the front header cables.
