I am currently working on some airflow hacks for my Hack Pro, by making a lower chamber to house the PSU and watercooling piping/CPU block, I can further drop the temp around 2 degrees. The chamber is fed cold air at the front, by the radiator and this is sucked out of the back by the rear fan. This also stops hot air rising and heating up the 7900GTX 512. The mod is only made from card at the moment, but I intend to fabricate it from Stainless Steel when I get time! I also want to incorporate a bracket to hold the 7900 steady at the back for transportation.
Stainless steel, isn't that tuff to work with? Beyond my ability (or tool set at least). Anyhow, that demon is gona make some people mighty envious. I particularly like the trident of antenna at the back, powerful and menacing.

Very elegant, don't know what else to say. Except that, by far this beats most factory made systems in terms of internal design, organization and hardware. Definitely a step above PC modders who usually end up mutilating their machine, in the name of modding (especially when using a G5 chassis.).
Thanks guys, I think I just got some ideas on how to finish the cowling over at strangedogs, make it out of black perspex with the apple donated from the lid of a defunct ibook. Mind you cutting the Apple shape out of the perspex could be bit of a challenge!
