Your idea will look great when your done.
Thanks. I'm still deciding on the rads at the moment. It's looking like i will either have two single 120mm rads. One in the top in push/pull going into one in the back in push then to the CPU. Or just one 240mm in the top in push. I leaning more towards 240 in the top because i don't think a single 120 in the rear will look good because it hangs too far over the CPU!

I'm not planning on water cooling the graphics card i think if i hold out for the right card with the right color look it will be fine. When i install the graphics card it will block all the right hand side of the case so i will not be putting a window in this side because all you will see is the graphics card, which i don't want! So instead i will be installing a window in the I/O panel side so everything is on view.

I have some 5V adapters for the fans. I'm happy with running the front and rear fans at 5V because they will be very quite. But do you peeps think i will be OK running my radiator fans at 5V or should i get some 7V or 12V adapters?

Thanks. It would look good to paint the case handles silver. I will need to get special paint for this with them being made of a soft plastic, so the paint doesn't crack.

The crystal clear fans look fine i don't think i will be painting any fan as i'm sure it may unbalance them. I may paint the black fans though as you say just the outer frames ill have to see.
I will be braiding all my cable with MDPC - Grey MKII.

lolz about the car, and yeah its a nice car! Drinks plenty mind you.
