Looks very good though! You should've painted it all black while it was disassembled.
He wanted an inverted case without spending money. I had the tools so we tried to pull it off with great success, I'd say. And he very much likes the look of inverted cases. Really, I'd have to say Cabbs and Culexor were the inspirations to this mod.
We are going to paint it black. He wants it to be completely black with red cathodes. and LED fans.
But really, the major upside of performing this mod is the advantage to flow. The stock design of this case for flow is fairly poor. The front has NO mesh in the bays for any air to flow and the only intakes for this case are on the side and in the HDD bay. So with the stock design air has to travel quite a ways to flow properly and "cool-ly" across the GPU, CPU, and PSU. Flow is hard to explain in words, so really only a picture can explain it.
Again, please excuse misuse of grammar or improper spelling. I'm still very tired :|.
