Yeah here's what I did with mine. Although I didn't paint it black I would have liked to have done so if I could have in downtown Hong Kong.

If I could have bought a PSU with a longer cpu power supply and run it behind I would have. Read the "rate the cablle managemet above you thread" in the Overclocking section of this forum for more ideas.

Drilled and nibbled, would have used a dremel if I had one. Read the thread, like mgcook, we both made holes in the case and routed our wires to come out right where we needed them. Does alot for airflow but takes an afternoon and some good planning to do so.

Anyway your temps are very good for a Pentium 4 you don't need to switch unless its just for kicks.
btw does the Antec 900 have a removable mobo tray?

But it turns out to be such a popular case, that surprises me.

The antec p 180b does. They have rebates at frys quiet often for that case.
I prefer the p108 better since it looks sleek. The fans and lights on the antec 900 makes it looks like a childs toy.
I hate all the leds.

You won't see too much of a difference in temps by simply switching cases. Some are a lot better then others, but it all really depends on the cooler itse'f. What's your set-up and chip cooler?
i second this... MY ARMOR IS DELICIOUS.... mm mmm good!!! only the psu installation was a pain in the ***
