i finally got everything together in my HAF XB. i like this case. i still need to do some work with the cables and i was sent the wrong sata cables and didn't want tyo use 36" ones. i want to redo the windows as i used 1/4" thick plexi( all i had in the garage) and it was heavy for my adhesive so i hot glued it a bunch. good thing CM parts are cheap. one day i will replace the fittings too.

took some quick pics. look at all them circles

No, those are just the original fans. The light is from two white 30cm. CCFL's. One over and one under the fans in the front. I don't like LED fans, and for case lighting I find that CCFL's tend to give a cleaner light than LED's.

I swapped the original front fans for two 140mm. Enermax T.B.Silence fans. Obviously to reduce noise, but I also think their smoked blades look really good with the lights.

I would be happy to. But it will have to wait until tomorrow.
Most of my camera gear is currently packed for a short overnight trip, so all I have at hand right now, is a compact camera that is in the charger and a 1D with a telephoto lens. And I am sure can understand why that is not the most practical camera/lens combo for shooting inside a case.

Are there 2x 3.5" hdds or 2x 2.5" hdds? If The small ones, you could Put the 80mm Fans as intake. If 2x 3.5 hdds you could cut a hole in the right sie panel, Put a 80 or 120mm fan into. Had done this before i changed my hdd cages. Look To my pics gallery, there you can See it . Before rebuilding, the max temp from my wd black was 39 degrees Celsius.
