Thanks a lot. Yeah they are maybe not the most desirable color but I am to afraid to paint them, scared I might do something that destroy them. But I am happy on how it looks. Gotten a few ideas also on how to have the fans so I might change directions on them, so far the 3 top are exhausting, the one in the back exhaust and the 2 at bottom are intake
Well, from my xperiance (and anyone reading this correct me if i am wrong) I found its better having more intake fans then out take, i read a review on google, and it showed that more intake creates possative airflow and its better to have say 8 fans then 6 willl be intake, the air that gets taken in will xcape via the litle holes and openings in your chassis,so as far as I know its better to have more intake than out take, but i could be wrong, so hopefully someoneelse can add on
Ya I was thinking on that last night, so I am planing on turning the top 3 fans around and turn the cpu around so all fans are intake while the cpu and back fan is exhaust, maybe it does it help it should I belive and maybe even help cool down the motherboard?

I don't think it really makes much difference to temps overall, might be very slightly cooler with more intake, but my guess is that's because fans pushing air is more efficient than pulling it... But that's just speculation.

One thing I can say for sure though, positive pressure in a case helps keep it cleaner than negative pressure, especially when dust filters are involved.. It stops tiny dust particles from entering the case through the cracks and holes where there aren't any fans.

Well I would keep the top ones at out take,cause heat rises to the top, and change all the rest to intake.

I have tried turning the back fan around for intake and that created some weird noise with the heat pipes for cpu, but looking at the image bellow I will draw up an image that I saw one guy had his fans on a different site with the same case, the heat pipes are aligned wrong but with the image and imagination I think you can see what I mean. and just the 1 fan on the top would be intake the 2 others would be exhaust

That looks AMAZING. It looks so clean and tidy, if I had enough money to buy a desk like that (hell, if I had any money) i'd definetely do that. Nice!

Thanx 4 the pic, now i would rather change the back fan to out take, so it doesn't disrupt your cpu coolers fans airflow, but it would then be good imho

I didn't know if I should post mine or not as i'm not sure if it qualifies as a rig :P

It's a fairly standard HP Media Center m7000kr with the exception of a nVidia GeForce 7800 GTX (which was good back when I got this machine). A set of medium range Logitech speakers and the only good think i've got is my iiYama Prolite 24" monitor. I used to use it for my Xbox but now it's for my PC I tried my best to hide the cables but as you can see, it didn't go well I've got a nice New York canvas picture behind aswell :P

Pretty nice professional looking PC. People nowadays don't appreciate classic designs any more I for one am using a "gaming" computer case just because of the large space inside, not the leds & everything.

I don't see the point in spending more money on a PC case with fancy leds and things when no-one else gets to see it. I managed to pickup this PC a year ago for only £150 when it was worth atleast £300. The people who were selling it had no idea how much it was worth. It needed a right clean though, it was reeking of marijuana.

So does mine =)) I clean the intake filters at least twice a month though. Dust in the air is the real nightmare since i have 2 cats and a dog running around the room all the time. Luckily for me the thing is modular in design (another plus for these "gaming" cases) and real easy maintenance.
