Vey sharp, inside and out. Like the cable wraps too. Couldn't tell but do you have those for the IDE cables too?

I need to do something with the insides of mine soon and don't know what. 4 fans, 2 hard drives and 2 cdrom/dvds with digital and analog cables running everywhere make it a bit of a mess. Had to splice in a couple of additional power cables for my GeForce cooler as well. Definitely needs a facelift.

Great Job man! Matter of fact, I have the same tower, just picked it up in Dec. What method did you use for cutting your side intakes? I noticed the sides are a lot thicker than my previous case and I hesitate to waste my time with a dremel again. To shorten it up a bit; You did an excellent job, hope mine turns out as clean.

Nice job!! I gotta admit, I'm jealous over here! I didn't have that much open space in my box when it was bare!

Very professional looking......I think you should be a consultant for the major manufacturers. Store bought pc's usually look like someone threw a bowl of spaghetti on top of everything, and then slammed the case shut!

Well done, my friend!

Single pickup laser, there's not much point going above 40X in a CD-ROM Drive, as performance tends to drop off over 40x.

These 72x Kenwoods have two lasers, so they read two bits at a time.

If you do wanna upgrade to a DVD drive, go for it, but if your after a new CD, there's not a lot of point going for a faster CD.
