It would look better if the 2 optical drives seated in further and set flush so
you don't see their aluminum casing.

Yeah I hafta agree with that Lexx, but it's how Antec positioned the mounting
holes for the drives. I looked at slotting out the mounting holes with a die
grinder to recess the drives back in just slightly but there's just not enough
metal to work with to get it done.
As a next best option I think I'm gonna pull the drives back out and paint the
silver parts of them with a matte black finish to at least make them blend in
better with the rest of the components and case.
This build was my 1st one of these cases and it took nearly 8hrs to meticulously
assemble and mount the components, then route all the wiring. The modular PS
was a big help in making this as clean an install as it came out since I didn
have to bundle up or hide a buncha excess wiring like I would have had to do
with a typical PS.
I really like this set-up. It's not really my personal style for a PC but it
gets everyones attention for sure, which is really why I built it
Hopefully within the next year I'll be able to assemble a machine with similar
specs for myself 'cause this thing is fast as hell. I'd prefer it in a bit more
subtle Antec, Lian Li or Coolermaster case though
