There is still a lot to do. If anyone knows anything that will spice up my rig even more;
I've also ordered the Nexus Beamair for my H40. I think that will make it alot cooler to look at haha:D.
Kinda hard to say with those pics, but I'd say cable extensions, some ram with nice heat sinks, HHD and PSU cover, a MB and CPU upgrade.

Also was thinking of adding some carbon fibre look vinyl to some parts of the case, and thought something along the lines of this would look cool for a minimalistic design. Knocked this up quickly in photoshop. So I ordered 350mm x 450mm carbon fibre vinyl, and looking to get some perspex cut neatly (don't trust using a rotary tool as I always seem to melt it slightly).
Still need to paint the case after the initial coat of primer, but due to snow over the weekend I couldn't be bothered to venture out to B&Q to get any! Maybe I'll go get it tomorrow.
Looking great, sorry to here about the LED. How are the fingerss holding up? I know mine have been numb for 2 days now, just finished the 24 pin on my PSU. As for the CF if you plan on leaving the HDD cage out, cover the floor and back panel too.

Welcome back and remember once a Scout always a Scout
Are the build going to be different or mirror each other?Make sure you keep us posted.

Low System temps too nice air flow happy with it
You should get some new case feet to lift it up a tad, I be that bottom fan will move a ton more air. Or just put it on something to see if it helps first

Kingston hyperx 8gb 1600mhz (which is blue, unfortunately)
ASUS M4a87td EVO
and a cooler master 750 watt PSU (non modular, which I really regret now too)
Going to be re wiring everything, and getting a new CPU cooler.
Right now, all the cable management is just... gross, with all the unused cables in front of the intake and an IDE dvd drive, which I'll be getting rid of too. So I wont be showing what it looks like now.
I'm running a stock cooler, which is what I want to upgrade, and I thought I'd be getting a corsair H60, and two extra case fans. I'm still undecided on the fans, probably getting either 2 silenX 120mm fans or 2 arctic cooling F12s. The F12s are twice as cheap, but a bit louder (5 dB) and white. While the silenXs are red and a bit quieter.
unless someone has a better suggestion, I'll get either one of these.
Then I was thinking of how to set up all the fans, and what I thought was to have the bottom fan on the window as an exhaust, to get rid of all the hot air the 560ti makes, and then the upper one as an intake. Then I'd be putting the radiator of the H60 where the 120mm exhaust is now, and having the fan included with the case also attached to the H60. Good plan? anyone have a better idea?
I'm not a big fan, no pun intended, on the fans on the side window. They make a lot of noise, As far as fans are concerned, the ones you put on your rad, I would go with the AC's out of the two you picked. You should really check this thread out. Martinm put a ton of time and effort in to the tests. Keep in mind a good case fan doesn't always makes a good rad fan.
One last thing, don't mix and mach fans in push pull. If the specs are not close you will just slow one fan down and could case a really bad buffering noise. I like the idea that you are wanting to play with the fans configuration, I feel it's always a good idea to do. I know I have come up with some configurations that worked great and some would say you shouldn't do it like that, but the number don't lie. Make sure you post some pics one you get it sorted out.

That is a dumb question, just poking fun at you
I used screws on mine, I would try an auto store and see if they have any nice allen head bolts. If not check your local hardware store. Or you can order from here.
