Hey B Neg,
Is it too late to consider fabricating a blank plate and relocating the switches elsewhere.
Perhaps horizontal above the CaseLabs "C" is worth a look ??

I reckon it's always going to have an odd look about it with the logo running through the switches

That thing will 'look' even better, imo. I'll bet you can paint it, no need to hide... although it might look a bit off

Question to those of you with HDDs mounted to the back of your SM8----don't they get pretty hot with no airflow back there?

Who told you there's no airflow? I have 2-3.5" HDDs and 2-SSDs mounted back there, and the HDDs temps stay within a couple of degrees of ambient. There is quite a bit of airflow if you set your case fans up right.

I have an SM5, but hard drives are mounted on the backside just like the SM8 so I can chime in. In short, no they do not get hot. The only time you really need to make sure a hard drive has direct airflow is when using something like an old school WD VelociRaptor. I've got a 1TB WD Black and it's purring along just fine, not overheating.

Nobody told me, I was just assuming since they have mostly solid panels on either side of them.

Thanks. I have a couple Seagate Barracude drives sitting in an external eSATA dock right now because my curent case has no room for them, and they get pretty hot. I think it might be because I sometimes run games off of them. Maybe I just need to buy another SSD for game installations only.
