Oh and if you're up for some warranty voiding, switch out your power supply fan for a Scythe S-Flex 1600rpm one, it should work quite well in it and remove any remaining noise.
I am pretty sure that all the acoustic foam will get most of the HDD noise (I can just hear it with the case open next to me face - as I said, this is silence to low standards). It will have rubber dampeners though. And thatnks for the tip but the TX650 already has a good, quiet fan in it.

I myself used techflex, but no matter what angle I look at it, how
much light, and however good my macros are I CAN NOT see any wires through it.

Good luck on this, it's goingto be fine.
I bought 100 feet of sleeving for $20. A similar of MM would cost.... god I don't want to think about it. I think for the final photoshoot I will just photoshop the wires to be grayscale - call it cheating, but it's the only way it'll look good for such a small budget.
