I got the lcd display for my HTPC project now, so I'll just tell you a little bit about what I'm doing. Maybe you'll decide to shell out more money for the case
I removed the HD led and inserted the IR receiver (I had to make a plexi glass bracket and drill a hole in the case to do that, but it was easy and is not visible from the outside of the case). The front of the case has a plastic piece that spread the led light, or collect the IR light to the IR receiver. The led is not mounted directly on the front of the case, but sits in the front of the main box behind a transparent plastic piece that looks like those Ts they use in golf to put the ball on. Not sure if it's possible to understand what I mean?
The IR receiver had a led that would light up every time I used the remote controll. I cut that of and connected the blue led that sit under the blue line. So now, the blue line lights up when I hit buttons on the remote controll.
I bought a large Matrix Orbit graphic lcd panel with blue backlight (the one on the picture does obviously not have a blue backlight). The display itself is almost as big as a 5 1/4" bay, and the few millimeters that will be visible is a grey color that looks nice together with the aluminium. I will insert it in the right bay. I will have to cut away some plastic from the right side, but again it will not be visible from the outside. The left side of the lcd unit will almost reach the left bay.
I haven't decided on which CD/DVD unit I will buy, but I got some aluminium front covers with the case, and Lian-Li have others for sale. There are also a few CD/DVD units that come with a "silver" look, which is suposed to look good in alu-cases.
The drives in the Lian-Li PC9300 is tilted a little bit. I put the harddrive inside a SmartDrive, but the bottom got in the way for the connectors on the motherboard. I then got the bright idea of using the other holes in the Smart Drive so it would tilt the other way. It worked great, and it should also improve the air flow. I don't know yet if there will be space after I mount the lcd unit, but if not I'll just have to make a ghetto HD-suspension.
Anyway, I'm having a break in the PC building process because the Fortron PSU I bought had a nasty coil buzzing. I'm now waiting for the Seasonic PSU to arrive before I continue. I expect this computer to be really good looking when I'm done, and I expect it to be pretty quiet. I will have to take some pictures and write a little bit when I'm done
