HAHA I feel like a dumb @zz. I just Pm'd you back on your question to find your thread afterwards.

The case looks nice. I want to do the window tint thing to but I too lazy. I still need to cut the side panel! If i did manage to find time I was going to use chrome tint? Anyways I love the case.

Do you have any temp probs? You could tape a prob to the side of PSU to get a temp read out (I would suggest a day so u have a steady temp) then flip the psu and do the same thing. Just tape the prob to the side of the psu closest to the Non window side panel.

If the temps dont rise or they don't sky rocket your PSU should be fine flipped.

Do you run your PC 24/7?

Thanks for the comment. I don't run my PC 24/7. I shut it down at night times. I was thinking the chrome tint to but decided I just wanted black and not a mirror. Where do I get one of those probes you are talking about?

Oh man. That looks so sweet. Our rigs are quite alike. I'm actually considering getting a 300 to replace my 900. I like the intake fans on the 300 better as well as the cable management. I'd probably end up cutting more holes for cables and putting in a window as well though.

Yeah. I think the top of the 900 is pretty ugly. Anyway, is there any kind of space between the front intake fans and the hdd bays? If I do get a 300, I'd drill holes in the hdd bays to allow me to put the hdds in backwards and route the hdd cables between the bays and fans and back behind into the cable management area. Any idea if there's enough clearance there?

I tried mounting them backwards but didn't want to risk getting my cords in the fans and didn't want to drill holes there. But there should be enough room if you drill holes in the drive bay.

Were you using right-angle connectors for your hdd cables though?

Oh, and by the way. The 300 was made so you could use your PSU in it's normal position. It doesn't need to be upside down.

And that's yet another reason why I like the 300 more than the 900.
