I am amazed at how nice that Cosmos looks with black inside.

I notice you yanked out the entire HD rack system. It sure opened up a lot of space! Not running a fan in there now? No need I guess, or does it mount out of sight?

Lithotech,

The only fans inside the case are the two on the rads but there is reasonable air flow through the case. I also added a NB Water block.

Great job Biff. That's the cleanest case I've ever seen.

Thanks for all the comments! Here's a build log incase you're interested. I also added a NB WB and a few other minor changes and will be posting the 'updated' pics there when I get around to taking some.
