Okay, got fed up with my BORING computer

I'm starting off with an A300.

Things I want/need:
Only 1 DVD drive - means cutting the bottom two places out, dont need them.
Only 1 HDD - gonna mount on top of top DVD bay, with TIM to transfer heat to top of case, more room.
WC! - Need space for my GHETTO RAD
Ghetto rad is an evaporator rad from some sort of freezer
Almost 10m of copper tubing, inside diameter something like 6mm. Width like 240mm, so I'll cut it in half.
It's THICK.
Plans :

So: cut up 5.25 and remove 3.5 bays
Holes + make filters for bottom rad's fans and PSU fan.
Some sort of cool feet, I might machine my own as we happen to have a cnc
Cable management holes + cpu cutout.
Obviously fully disassemble case and paint the interior.
Also I may do something to the top 140mm, I'm liking the looks of the grill but can't stand turbulence.. Might do something along the lines of what the P182 has, as quietness is a key factor in my world
Oh yeah, and gonna make a LM317 fan controller, as they're dirt cheap to make!
