What an amazing first post.

Very nice and clean build, I love the small accents like the coloured PCI cover screws. I also really like the matte black tubing, looks awesome.

Wrap your HDD in some black or red foil. That is really shiny piece that you dont need.

Good idea you have. Will this be what i need ?

Or : http://mnpctech.com/pc-mod-vinyl-wrap-graphics-modding-films-sticker/vinyl-black-film.html

Do you think placing a sort of plastic cover cut over hdd to avoid all curves of hdd top for the film will be nice ?

I will also cover the i/O shield and his connectors.
