Make a PSU hiding cover, reverse the HD's. Maybe invert the motherboard for hardcoreness.

To do list:
1) Cut up the mobo for better behind the tray wire management.
2) Side window, maybe etch a cool effect in.
3) Replace the front bays with a custom front panel for the dual 120s
4) Stealth the drive(s).
5) Custom grills for the top and back fans.
6) Awesome custom paint job
7) Some cool feet

Essentially, do this:

I've never been too creative with case mods before so I don't have much to say. Before you read my suggestions, I haven't read any posts above yet so I apologize if these are repeats. Since the cable management in the 300 is garbage, cut out holes. Add a hole behind the CPU backplate as well. Scuff up the interior and paint it a nice matte black. Then Add a side window. That is really all I can think of...
