    why can't all cases come with powdercoated interiors, they make the cases look 10x better
    I agree 100%. Especially in high end cases, it make everything look that much better no matter how wild or ordinary. Puts my pc-70 to shame.

    This is very similar to the build I'm working on. I'm curious, how did you get that annoying cross-bar off the top half of the case? Near as I can tell the damn thing is riveted in place and I didn't see an easy way to get rid of it without cutting it. Something else I'm considering on my build is mounting a pair of Laing DDC on the MB tray, and putting a 120.1 radiator/fan on the bottom of the case, although that will depend on how clean I can run the wiring and such if I do that. I was origionally considering a 120.2 radiator on the top, but seeing how clean it looks when you remove the top PSU mount and cross-bar I might use a 120.3 instead.

    project is looking good...

    keep it going
    I don't think it would be. If he is only getting the interior done and most of the prep was complete. It wouldn't be more than $50-$75ish...

    Removing rivets is very easy, all you need is a drill. It seems everyone is afraid of rivets, but there shouldn't be a reason why, they aren't that bad.

    I think it's more a psychological thing. If you remove a screw and change your mind you can always put it back. Removing a rivet is a bit more permanent, although even then if you have a pop-rivet gun you can reattach them, although they won't look as nice as the factory rivets.

    I really didn't look very closely at the bar because at the time I wasn't planning on doing any heavy modification to the case (was still planning on air cooling), but after deciding to go with water cooling it became apparent I would need to modify the case if I was going to go with a internal setup and preserve the clean outside lines. I was sort of hoping there were some screws I missed or something, but if I have to I guess I'll just need to drill out those rivets. Definitely an option I'll consider.

    On the other hand, I could save that HD cage and mount some HDs there, while removing the bottom most HD cage from the front of the case and putting a radiator on the front panel, my pumps, or a radiator across the bottom of the case instead. So many options to consider, almost makes me wish I could just buy 3 or 4 systems and try them all.

    Anyway, I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this build to see how it goes and maybe snag a few ideas .

    P.S. Knet370, nice mod on the pump. I'm afraid I'd be too scared to try something like that on mine, that's a fairly hefty chunk of change should you screw it up.

    Very Nice Work! I was thinking of getting this case or the silverstone TJ-07; still a toss up as they are both excellent cases
