Thanks guys and yeah, I wish it was mine!!..LOL!!...well hopefully I'll get a chance to get my rig updated, I have my 3x 280's and I'm hoping to give the other rigs a run for the money when I'm done. I'm hoping the Coolit Elite, BitsPower mofset & nb blocks and TC 120.3 rad will give me the cooling to notch it up a bit more
I'll post up a work log when I'm done, hopefully by next wknd if all goes well.

Curious, did you use velcro to hold the fan in the 5.25 drive bays too? I used a Thermaltake iCage in my lower 3 bays, allows for the 6th drive and two more slots when needed. Puts the fan up front where the red LEDs on it show nicely. But if I ever move the iCage to another system, I'll want a fan to stay there.

Very nice work on all so far, drooling like everyone else!

Very nicely done! Especially in the Antec 300 which I've heard doesn't exactly have the most room inside for cable routing and such.

Is there a big advantage of facing your CPU heatsink so that the fan is blowing to the top of your case?
