Here's mine, as you can see the bottom bracket is completely gone, I like the extra room to work with. As for HDD cooling just modded my case slightly to accomodate a front 120 mm fan. I have plans to have this case completely done in all black or I just might consider getting an Antec P182SE really depends on the cost. I think with a black background it would look awesome and help hide the imperfections.

Cheers,

EE

Very nice i think the black background would be sweet, I might try that myself but i'm going to wait for the P183, How's the noise off the fan's compared to the tri cools, I was all akasa's but the tri cools move a lot more air so i swapped back.

Tri-cools are POO. Noctua's great, but those are ugly colour... So far my fav are Scythe S-flex, and the Zalmans or yates are great for cheap fans.

Thanks for the welcome 1Tanker it a nice site.
The sound off the tri cools is poo but they move a hell of a lot of air, the noctua's colour isn't for everyone i guess, I love the look of sharkoon fans myself.

The noise between the Noctua's and the Tri-cool was like night and day, but I won't dispute that the tricools have better airflow just the noise for me was a little too much.

Yeah I completely forgot welcome to the forums , hope you stick around we're a nice bunch.

No need for the mod on the P183, its already done for you.
