Tomorrow i'm driving to seattle. Wednesday when i return to work I'll get a render of the case packed with goodies. Do you guys want higher res images or are those fine?
Hehe...

Got me snared; hook, line, and sinker.

Pics of the case stuffed.
room for 4 HDDs but i still need to make up a bracket for them.
Only room for 1 Optical drive unless i mount another under or over the PSU. Any ideas?

What kind of benefits do you get from the roller-style fans? Intuitively it seems you would get a nice, even blanket of air flow, should be fairly quiet, but will it push much CFM?

only around 80 CFM but they will be quiet and the concept is that air goes in, picks up latent heat, and goes out.
No "hot pockets" of air caught in areas due to pressure and flow differences.
I want to get a smoke pen too when i have it complete to demonstrate that just because your case puts out 80CFM it isnt very affective if the the air is coming from only one area, or only taking heat from one area and becoming stagnant in other areas.

I would appreciate some input at this point about adding a second optical drive.

Do you think i should
  1. Add a drive above the PSU
  2. expand the case and add an internal drive
  3. leave it with one optical
As is the case up right is only a 15" X 15" X 7" box and i dont want to make it much bigger.
Any thoughts?
I need to iron out ALL details before i start building the mold.
Thanks
