I picked it up at NCIX for 99.00 they had a promo that included 15.00 shipping. I really like brushed aluminum cases so I jumped on it.

Holy crap...

NCIX.com - Buy LIAN-LI PC-V600A Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Case 4X5.25 3X3.5INT Mesh Front Panel No PS - PC-V600A In Canada.

looks like they just have the silver left. Mine is very modded. stock comes with the powersupply over the cpu that limits your cooler choices.

Yeah nicely moded, made me wonder where you will place the PSU. I still wonder, since the hot air from the psu exhausts right at the hard drive, not too good.
But nonetheless I still admire your build.

I don't think so. A PSU exhaust is usually where the power cord plugs in the psu, and that would be outside the case if you looked a bit carefully at the pic he posted. Unless he decided to switch the fan inside so they push the other way in the psu (which I would be intrigued to see anyone do), the fans are taking their air just under the HDDs and pushing it out the bottom of the case

This is correct psu exhaust out the bottom. my temps on the raptors have actually been better with this setup its not hot to the touch anymore.
