Right off the bat - you could chop the case in half and if you wanted to eliminate the SSD. You could also switch out that PSU - Cooler Master has a horrendous reputation when it comes to power supplies.
What makes drives like the Vertex 3 unreliable btw, g-unit?
The problem is some manufacturers (*COUGH* OCZ *COUGH*) are never that reliable when it comes to firmware updates - as evidenced by the Vertex 4 - it doesn't matter what controller they use - as long as the drivers aren't reliable then the drive itself isn't. If manufacturers like OCZ constantly treat users like they're beta testers, they're going to lose every single time.
