and finally, all done and all closed up

hell yes... i love those fans, but i might take to 230mm of the door and put four high flow 120mm's

i hate the IDE on the sound card though... stupid cable blocks airflow unless you scrunch it up...

Why do your cases always have the fan for the CPU heatsink at the rear of the case? Is it sucking from the front facing side through to the back or pushing from the back to the front?
