No gloss, I would go for a interior that absorbs the light rather than reflects it.
Hope that makes sense.

Semi-black looks great for case interiors IMO.

That's what I did my Antec 900 in. Tremclad Semi-Gloss Black to be exact.

I was thinking about giving the Tempest a shot over my 900 since the Tempest has the option to mount the radiator up top, though I don't think it's really worth $130...
