    It's already brushed black.

    I prefer brushed over "piano gloss."

    Another nice thing is how Ultra's other case you should use used a PC board to send power to parts, what about using that feature, or some kind of cable management tubing system to route supply and drive cables more neatly.
    The case will get that, but it's the final step in the process. You can't make the PCB and then change around the lay out of the case.

    Yeah, I did miss your post about that, I read too fast. What I meant by using the 92 mm fan is on a HD cube that incorporates one floppy, the fan would have to be smaller to cool the 3 HDs while still accomodating the floppy drive. Wasting an entire 5.25" bay just for a floppy is unappealing, that is why I suggested it.

    Check out the panduit channel products, maybe there are some things there you could use?

    Also, didn't mean to imply that what you had on the top of the case was using a 5.25" bay, I was referring to what Coolermaster did that I didn't like. I really like their Stacker, the original one, but there are some things I would change on it, plus make it more affordable, too...
    System #1: DFI LP UT nF4 SLI-DR; Athy 64 s939 4800 Toledo (MKII) @ 3.01GHz w/Thermalright XP-120 Lapped & Panaflo w/Coollabs Liquid Metal compound; 2 x 1GB Team Xtreem Cronus Micron 5B-f DDR-500; EVGA 7950GT; Creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum; 6prt Adaptec USB card; SevenTeam ST750Z-AF Modular supply; ASUS DRW 1608DW burner NEC 3520a burner; Seagate 7200.10 750GB SATAII HD; Seagate 7200.10 ES 500 GB SATAII HD; Excelstor 80GB SATAI HD; Coolermaster Stacker STC T01 UWK; it's modest, but paid for

    If it hasn't been released yet probably not since jonny doesn't consult for Ultra anymore.

    Haha... yeah. I'm thinking this case is dead unless someone picks up where I left off or I decide some other company needs a new case.

    When I read the first couple posts, I thought, What would happen if we mounted the motherboard to the left side of the case, upside down. CPU on the bottom next to the bottom mounted PSU and slots at the top?

    Because of my quest for quiet, I like the idea of the PSU cooling nothing but itself. If I could put up a wall in the middle of the bottom of my P180 and still get air to move over the hard drives (even out the front) I would do it.

    In a lot of ways the BTX standard has some good ideas. Too bad it never caught on.
