First, my apologies for the edit Enigma but there's one thing here I need to know. This is the second post in which you've referred to "paint cleaner". All I know of is polishing compound which cleans the oxidized paint off cars and TSP (Tri Sodium Phosphate) which cleans paint without stripping, usually for houses.
Are either of these what you are referring to?? If not, what is your "paint cleaner"?

Ok, so what about my idea of just transferring the drive from the old system? Do you think that's good? Or should I do it the old slow way?

Also I've tried Synching her laptop with the main rig before but could never get it right, even after reading the Win7 help file. Got any insights or websites that make this kind of thing easy?

Has anyone ever used the rubber fan holders instead of screws? If yes, did you like that way of doing it?
They slip through the hole, snap back to where they're supposed to hold and that's that, you cut off the excess and no screws to carve up the plastic hole that you put the fan into the case or panel through.

Also, I have a rubber grommet around my PSU fan. Has anyone used these for the fans on the other parts of the case? Was it worth it?

Oh, has anyone used wireless on a non-laptop system. I have a Linksys WRT160N router and the laptop connects to it flawlessly and quite high speed. I bought a wireless link for this case, thinking it would be smart to stay in the family I got a Linksys WMP300N /LA and it's not connecting at all and the word on thier forum is they don't support thier own products. That's what I get for listening to the Best Buy sales kids. Someone on New Egg posted that the cards chipset drivers from the OEM are better than Linksys but the chips are covered by a shield so I don't know what drivers to get. Yes, I googled it already and no luck.

Here's my scout posted a while ago. Just did some cable management. Also added a cardkeeper brace to my 4890. It was starting to bend under the weight of the thermalright trad2. The brace adds support to the card make makes sure it doesnt snap, as well as adding looks.

Motherboard finally came back from RMA!!!

Build isn't anything special, but here it is. Had to remove the 2nd cathode (yes they're blue) as it was in the way of the side case fan. Hadn't planned on using them, but they came free with my fan controller (which I'll probably be modding black somehow).

Managed to run the 24pin through the top hole without any cutting, fan cables/8pin also running behind mobo. The cathode wires make it look messier than it is, but they're so damn short.

Really want to get rid of the bottom plastic fan grill.

Last Pic showing the clearance between my Noctua nh-u12p and the top fan.

I am tempted to do some cable management on my case. Possibly clean some dust. I'll post pics when done.

That's possibly the worst colour layout I've ever seen It's just a matter of personal taste though. Good job on the cable management though.

Question: is it easy to put an intake 120mm fan at the 5,25 bays? Or does it need modding?
And is it possible to use a 120mm fan to replace the 140mm front fan?

Yes, no, yes.
Wire ties are all you need for a 120 in the 5.25 bay. The lower part has screw holes for a 120. But I recommend staying with 140's. Your case came with a 5.25 adapter bracket that will actually allow you to attach a 140mm fan in the upper bays. I found this to be superior to using a 120 in this area. It moves more air and it is quieter.
