Thanks, the system is all taken apart atm. All of the internals went into the PS07B and I am waiting on a new custom top panel. Here is what the build looks like now.

I should be getting the top panel in the mail soon and I will have some updated pics. thumb.gif

nice. thumb.gif i've never remove any rivets in my life before so it maybe give me a hard time for the first time.
i will upgrade my system to intel platform since mobo manufacturer didn't produce high end matx mobo. all the love went to intel. mad.gif
and i'm thinking of maybe do some watercooling. by removing the top bay seems perfect for the rad thumb.gif

The rivets are easy to remove. just use a #26 drill bit and take the head off. biggrin.gif

Removing the top drive bay worked out well for me and the rad fit in perfect. thumb.gif
