Hello , i'm currently in the process of building a PC, i'm going for a bubble bee build because in my opinion it just looks awesome. Anyways i found this case http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... and it looks really nice aesthetically but i have problems with it physically that i'm worried about. First will i be able to remove the blue LED inside the case by removing the default fan? Also will my parts fit? It seems a little bit smaller of a case , here's my specs [PCPartPicker part list](http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1KYLN) / [Price breakdown by merchant](http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1KYLN/by_merchant/) / [Benchmarks](http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1KYLN/benchmarks/)

I bought a raidmax case in 2003 because it looked nice, quality wise it is the poorest thing I have had and I threw it away in 2006 on the second upgrade on that rig. Looking at the pictures in the link it looks like quality has not improved.

Fractal, Antec, Cooler Master, LIan Li, Corsair and so on. There is no lack of cases with good cable management and drive configurations, here is review of several good cases http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/antec-gx700-cooler-... it is a series and you will find a link to the other articles.
