Custom Cooler Master Elite 340

Dremeled out puny 80mm hole and made it a 120mm. Heres a better look at the side.

Also dremeled out the back fan to get rid of the stupid honeycomb stuff. I love that plastic edging, really cleans up the look.

Heres a shot of the whole back.

WHAT! NO WAY! Yes, yes way. Thats a GeminII in a elite 340. How did i do it you ask?

Well, it took a little bit of cutting and a little rubber edging to make it purty. Since had to cut up the 3.5 bays as you can see, i had to install the 500gb hard drive to the front of the case.

Ive got 4 kaze-jyuni 110cfm fans in this case all set to silent and im lovin it! Very Happy What should I do next/fix?confused

EDIT:
I went ahead and moved the hdd to the bottom and i have to say, much quiter now. Heres updated pics.

Those are some pretty nice specs you have there. The only thing that would bother me is the led's. I cant have lights other than the monitor on. Now if you can turn off your led's then that would be amazing. Seeing your specs makes me want to build a i7 rig Sad

I had to install a rocker switch in one of the floppy bays, unfortunately, the wire I set to ground came loose and hit one of my hard drives and shorted it out. I could fix it if I had time, but at this point its not important.

And the i7's Make me want to build an i7 System. bounce

Wow, so I just priced an upgrade to I7. All you really need for the upgrade is the cpu, memory, and motherboard. For a i7 920, Asus p6t, and Corsair DDR3-1600, the price comes to $939.96 plus shipping affraid . WOW. I mean, I know the price will come down but wow.

Well, I also forgot about a psu. i7 uses a 8pin cpu power cable, not the standard 4 pin.

An adapter would probably be a better solution. On the P6t mother boards, (asus in particular), it looks like it's still supporting the 4 pin connection, but the X58's are all 8 Pin. The Ultra X2 already has a slot for an 8 Pin EPS connection, so im set as far as that goes.
