Wow, that really is a beauty - I'm a big fan of well-made air-cooled systems.
Certainly made full use of the front bays - nice optical arrangement along with the fan controller and X-Fi panel, and I'm assuming those are Noctua fans dotted around the case.
Can we have a full spec list in this thread please?

Well chaps, you've surpassed yourselves again.
Loving the interior arrangement - no mess, no fuss. Lucky chap
Ooooh, I like those SATA cables, what are they?
Oh no, just realised, that almost sounds like, "Ooooh, I like your shoes........"
You replaced the chassis fans with Noctua? Did you replace the HUGE ones at the top? At the risk of looking Chav like I did quite fancy lit fans at the top, but didn't know if anything would actually fit?

very nice job and the new Coolermaster case looks like some quality work too
Apologies for not responding to Snooty Jim's request for spec's sooner relating to Malcolm's(thats me) Black Widow but here they are:

System is cooled by 3 230mm Coolermaster fans,4 Noctua NF-P12 Vortex 120mmfans and then silenced by AcoustiPack side linings and bay blocks.
Finally sys is connected to 3 Dell 2408WFP monitors by a TripleHeadToGo Digital System.
The sys is cool under load,very quite and extremely fast.As you can see from the pics posted here Ricks build is very professional and neat.
I thank Philip for his excellent advice on my choice of components and Paul for all his help.
So gentlemen if you want a handbuilt computer I can thoroughly recommend Scan!!

I know I'm bringing up an old thread, but I came across this doing searches for cable management. I recently bought this case and am in the middle of putting it together.
What are those black cable holders that you've used and where can I get those? I've put red arrows pointing to them in this picture:
I have these in my system too
From searching Scans site I can only find white versions
You just need some cable ties to wrap into them and around your cable
Hope that helps
Wow, very nice cable management. Love the front panel's too, another great build from scan!
Pardon the n00b question, but I have the same fan controller as above ... how do I install it? It came with screws, but where do I put them in? I can make out the holes where it should be lining up on the side of the drive bays, but it seems hard to get a screwdriver through there. Also, would I need washers and nuts?
nice clean layout for such a build
I am feeling the dual sli graphics cards in there
