Painting the interior or Plasti dipping it would be nice. Maybe add a certain theme to it.

I like the way you think, plexi mod FTW!

Depends on how much modding experience you have and what you are willing to do but may I suggest the following:

- Create a jet like turbine mod for the front fan(s).

Something like that^

- Perhaps a top and/or bottom intake/exhaust fan mod.

- Try some chrome trimming to give it a more sharp kind of look.

stealth your dvd drives
paint the interior
cut some proper wire management holes into the interior
put a window on the side
cut the grills out of the fan cages on the front (it improves airflow, reduces turbulence, lowers noise, etc)

x2 on stealthing the optical drives, you can do a fan controller too. Here is my A300!



And some cable management too!

^Ohhh, I really like how the foam makes the HDD/optical cage look stealthy.

I'm gonna stealth the drives, get a sidewindow, and 2 red fans in the front with one or two cathodes (red).

Anyone have a tut on stealthing the drives?
Read my Chlokwork Orange build log, I have a whole section for steathing the drives. It's a bit more than the usual stealth job for the A300s.

stealthing a drive is not as easy as it looks..

i spent about 1hr doing mines...

i found out the main problem. the side grooves on the front panel peice was blocking it from coming out. and i had to shave down the side peice of the front peice. *the removable thingamajig*

mines looks great tho

Raise up the case on some feet, then drill a hole so your PSU fan can face down, drawing cold air from underneath the case, not hot air from inside.

stealthing the drives is pretty simple if you have the right tools (i used a hacksaw, lol) the only part i had slight difficulty with was you have to slightly shave off a bit of the plastic and then bend the mesh to fit tigher for it to go in n' out smoothly
