So I got my case today, Love it so far.

I wonder what the UPS guy thought, I ran to the door once he knocked to find these on my porch:


The contents of the small box:


And the contents of the big box:


Refurbished? noo wayyyyy.:

Mystery box inside the case, contained a few useful things i.e. standoffs:


Got the three exhaust fans installed:


Couldn't get the side panel on like this, had to re-do the cable management (not taking the panel back off to get a pic):


Not only does my motherboard look puny in here, but for once my graphics card looks puny as well:


Sitting under my desk (that server sitting next to it is lighter!):

Never! I love my Hitachi CRT! (with an S before its name)

Really, other than how much depth of my desk it takes up, I love this thing. Better color and contrast than any LCD I have ever used (other than ones that cost $300>)

I love that case. I say you paint the inside black! I sold mine a couple cases ago before this one... I havent put my stuff in this case yet, we'll see how much I like it then haha.

I am thinking about painting the inside ultra-flat black, but that will probably wait until summer, as I paint in the garage which is not insulated, and paint+cold=bad paint job.
I love it too, its so quiet, and yet everything runs so much cooler

The only sign that it is not brand new is inside, right above the PSU it looks like a tiny bit of the galvanization came off the steel. Apart from that, it is perfect, although the top IO ports will take some getting used to (already almost broke a flash drive)
