well my only thing with the psu is it seems wasteful.. you could be drawing in hotter air from stuff and helping it vent.. but your pulling in colder (being lower) and pushing it out.. I guess it would help the PSU in the long run...
HDD are made to run flat though... I mean.. I have my computer open, I pull the HDD out and lean it to the side and it clicks like mad and has errors.... just seems wrong to me... they werent designed in the factory to run that way.
airbox is cubish- it has CD roms on bottom with side mounted HDD, and PSU on bottom, the cords are threaded up through convenient cut out slots in the Mobo tray- which sits FLAT on top. places for like 6 80mm fans to keep it cool... however I doubt it will work as well with some motherboards Ive seen, the pictured one seems... off
Danger Den :: Cases :: DD - Air Box
I came up with something like it in my sketches, compact, elegant, although mine has a curve detail front, and some special USB ports I have set up- so I can plug in some USB thumbdrives, then they can lay flat inside a panel and out of the way. Intakes to blow over HDD and such on bottom, 2 80 and 2 120 To keep the Mobo cooled....and a waterproof top so i can use it as a counter top lol also its a odd set up because Iam picky.. the IO panel is INSIDE the case.. so the cords can be hidden by a casing and threaded off as needed, 1 big "cable" will come out the back for everything this way, then seperate into smaller cables wrapped in the same Cord shielding
