I made a PSU cover myself will send you pics in the A.M., as far as the case feet, no they are not adjustable however its simple to get larger feet or possibly a longer screw setup to raise it

Thanks a lot for those pictures!
It really does look easy to work and build with!

It looks like you have the CM Storm Trooper. I have some questions regarding it, as that's where I am gravitating towards. Does the mesh side panel still allow you to make out some details inside the case? I'm not to keen on having a whole glass panel, but I would like some visibility of inside the case.
One of the main reasons why I'd like to get Trooper is that it looks like it would have better air flow due to the mesh sidings. Do you know how the airflow compares in the Trooper vs Stryker?
And can you install another fan on the mesh side panel to allow air intake onto the GPU?

Thanks!

I know I'm not the one you were asking..but I own a Storm Trooper so I can contribute.

Not really. Unless you have lights glowing inside your case, the dark mesh combined with the dark interior will provide very little to none viewing of the insides.
As far as fans, yes, there are two mounts, and possibly a third if you mod the aluminum/steel (whatever they use) to accept holes.

Coming from an Antec P182 which was a very noise-orientated case, my temperatures of my GPU 6950 reference (Only one tiny fan on the card) dropped from 48-52C idles to aobut 36 (with side fans off) and another solid 10 (so about mid20s) with fans on. The fans it comes with a pretty damn silent, I've experienced, so I usually keep them full blast on the side if I'm gaming, if not, everything is off except one back exhaust.

My CPU dropped from mid 20s to 18s (one pull), and can drop to 12 or so with the push fan on full blast.

Pretty damn amazing.

At a LAN, I fell asleep around 5AM, left all my fans on full blast, woke up around 7 to temperatures of about 12C (CPU) and 18C (GPU).

you can also buy a windowed panel from the cm store, i love my stryker ( same windowed panel you can buy ) i have 1 fan on the vrm and 1 200mm up top and my board stays coolish. so does my video card. i did block the rear vents so the air is pushed from the side fans into the case. i like how the fans on the side ( so i wont be changing them to pull air in from the front of the case) and i ill be changing to 2 140mm fans up top and adding an extra 120mm fan in bottom all in all no matter what you do there is options for alot of airflow in to the case ( turn the hard drive cages to the front, 2 120 fans in bottom of case, 1 140mm fan in rear, and 2 140mm fans in top)
