Ok so i thought i would buy a nice new case:<br />
<br />

<br />
<br />
To replace my old case:<br />

<br />
<br />
Here is a Comparison of the two:<br />

<br />
<br />
It was ok to build into this case, but the best bit was trying to get cable management right.<br />

Looks like a pretty cool case... But why not do a few mods while nothing is in it? I think it would really make the yellow stand out if you would paint the inside of the case black, or a dark color. And on the rear panle of the case, cut out the holes for the fans completely, this will imporve air flow, and reduce noise.

To clean the heatsing, pop off the fan, then take the metal fins to the sink and rinse with water <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> Then dry and reatach the fan... simple as can be.

Can you rotate the fan on the CPU to go with the flow of the case at all? That would help cool a bit better. And yeah take it out before you use some compressed air. When it gets that bad it will just spread all around the case and make it worse.<br />

</div>I was thinking about that after seeing other cable management posts, however i like the Round IDE cable.<br />
Also its very fiddly to get round the front of the case and plug them in, if it was a SATA drive i would of done it that way.
