Very clean and nice. I would loose the stickers on the front of the case as it detracts from an otherwise clean build in my opinion.

I am looking at the same ram cooler and it looks really easy to install. Is this true? Would there be issues with regular moving of the computer or is it on solid?

The customer put the stickers on to what he wanted, but i agree.

The customer is always right. They may be idiots but they are right.

that's a great job on the interior paint,
I attempted the same thing but I didn't sand it down enough and spray cans don't always cooperate, lol

very nice build! i love the wire management and the interior paint. How is that V8 working? i've been thinking of grabbing one, but i don't know how well it works on the 920 (assuming that's the cpu you have)
