Thats a pretty good idea, I might have to invest in one of these then :)

Very nicely done, good attention to detail. I agree, throw your drives in the 5.25" bay area, really keeps things clean. If you don't end up doing that, maybe flip the drive toward the inside to keep those cables more hidden.

+1!

Nice build/setup! How are you liking the monitor?

The monitor is fantastic, plenty big enough for what I need and gives great colour reproduction. Just need to save for and justify a second. ;-)
