Pictures as promised. This is what it looks like with the mobo mounted. I know I will have to take it down when I install the waterblock but I wanted to see how it looks before I got started:

 

Front push down panel that covers the optical drives:

Cool SATA drive adapter pre-attached to one of the drive cages for a cleaner installation:

If I am not mistaken too, those are Hot swap SATA cages on that case as well.. Which is nice if ya got a raid going :)

 

 

Also why didn't ya put the CPU/cooler on before you mounted the Motherboard lol, I find it so much easier to do it before the motherboard is in the case :P. I usually install the ram too.

I will be doing a raid config.

 

Oh yeah BTW I just wanted to see what the mobo looks like inside of the case since the case is powder coated black lol. I will have to dismount the mobo again to install the waterblock plus do some wire management cause some of the holes for the wire management that lead to the back of the case are covered by the mobo.

 

 

The only downfall of this case I could find is that it attracts a good amount of dust on the inside and outside after a few days. Especially since it's black.

 

 

EDIT: BTW guys the 750watt Silverstone PSU I ordered has 2x 8 pin CPU power connectors for my mobo. I can't wait to see the OCing results I get with that extra amount of voltage :)
