Is the airflow sufficient in this case? Should I arrange my components differently?

Its all perfect.  I especially like your use of the Zip Ties.  The angled position of your HDD is brilliant!  Keep up the good work and keep us posted.

Is that really your case? why is it coming from a random FB page?

[edit]

Sorry If I sounded rude but that looks like a mod someone would brag about not question whether the airflow is adequate.

This gives me an idea for a new retail case design  :)

 

Ease of access, outstanding airflow and eco-friendly (re-using old discarded milk crates)

 

Brilliant!

Easy to change parts, very quiet since fans won't really be needed and the eco-friendly part matches my old username :P
