Doesn't look the stock feet there :P One of these days I'll have order me up a set for a mod, they do class it up, you cooking up any new case feet in the near future?
Indeed Josh. It's great for mounting windows. No plans yet, Our current feet are keeping production busy (thank goodness!) on another note, those are made on the cnc lathe, so I've been considering using this to make a new line of super size case thumbscrews.

Wow looks amazing!

For an even cooler touch you should paint the inside matte black and throw some extra Fan's, kind of like a mini-not-hideous-Antec 900

Inside definitely needs some paint love.

Heres the paint colors I had in mind, Pearl white for the chassis, and House of Kolor's "Ice Blue" for the exterior

very nice

I wanted to get an Antec 300 but I wanted more side ventilation and a window so I might get a 900

Is it hard to cut out the side panel? I'm interested in modding a 300 myself

That would look tacky. If you want to make it a certain color then use leds and cold cathodes. Don't color the window.

Ive been considering grabbing some colored acrylic mirror.

Shiny color when lights inside are off. Turn the lights inside on and boom see through.
