Doing some more mocking up, getting a feel for what to powder coat. Here's a couple of ideas I had if I go with red on the inside:

Not sure if I like the red drive bay covers. I will probably just avoid touching the exterior colors, they look great as-is.

That's probably it for now. More when the parts start arriving. Thinking about integrating a sort of "waterfall" into the window. All I'd need is another thin sheet of clear plastic, cut to the window size with threaded holes for barbs, then held together ~5mm apart with silicone or something. Would probably hinder cooling, but it'd look badass. Quick mock-up of that idea:

HTPC: MSI Z77A-G43 + i5-3570k@4.6 + 16GB DDR3-1600 + GTX 580 + X-Fi Platinum on water
Work: 13" MacBook Pro Retina 512GB
Old Workstation: X7DWA-N : 2x Xeon E5330 Quads @ 3GHz + 24GB FB-DIMM DDR2-800 on water
1x 8800 Ultra --> Sony GDM-FW900 + LVM-37w3se // HT Omega Striker ~ (optical) Pioneer SE-DIR800C ~+ SE-DHP800 / HD 280 Pro
