    did some shopping for a case and i have a question on case liket his one
    the faceplate have buttons, does this mean that i can buy a beige dvd burner and use those silver faceplate instead of the beige one so tehy match w/ the case?

    if not, then what are they for...oh and if it is, can i buy any optical drive and the faceplate will fit?

    That is the exact same case as I have.I put my burner in behind the cover and just had to modify the button a bit so that it would actually work right.It really isn't a bad case,lots of cooling(it's a real bitch to get the front fans in though). A word of advice though...get rid of the ugly ass multi color fan on the side panel.It is super ugly,get a blue one and it will match the front LED's.

    By the way,how much are you paying for it? I got mine for 37 bucks canadian(no PSU though)
