    Snickies! That heatsink probably weighs more than my whole H20-C7 project:jawdrop:

    Good choice for air cooling.

    I talked with Brian last night about painting the top of the cpu cooler, so it looks like an engine. I also installed this slotted vent for the side window

    Love that colour. The HDD bay looks sweet with the black mesh, great colour contrast.

    TEC- "ok you have no choice but to stealth the drives. there is no way you can leave a normal disk drive in there"

    You bring up a good point TEC! I was thinking of this too on the way to work a few days ago. I have two disk drives and a Temp monitor LCD going in the front. I mean, there really isn't an option at this point. I don't think 3 black covers in the front would break up the flow too bad..?

    :idea:
