Question Thermaltake Tsunami Case Mod?

I remember there being a site on doing some case modding on this case. Anyone know any links?

Already did, if you click some links they dont really show you any mods and most of them are hard to do. The one I am talking about took the top plug in ports and put em on the side and showed how to do wire management.

I want to go for best airflow and cable managment. Anything possible to do I am willing to go for.

To help air the first thing is to help the fans u got. The front looks nice but sucks at airflow. The best thing is cut the alum door and put a funnel like this,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowI...Case+%2D+Retail

But thats a lot of work.

Next best is cut the inner panel and use a reg round grill.(see pict)

If you only have 1 CDRW than you can use the Kama Bay cooler, if you use 2 than you can put a 80mm fan.
here is a link of tips to help air flow.

I need help with wire managment the most. Ide cables are too long. 36" I think.

At this point I need shorter Ide cables, that bay cooler, sleeving, and stuff to hold down cables in certain places.
