Want me to photograph my computer?.. mmmkay

Sure! you know what when I'll finish installing my pc I'll create a thread called "what's your pc look like" and we can upload the photos over there it'll be fun.
I'll be honored to see your pc as well Jacko

aww i wish i could guys, but i dont even have a cellphone or a nice camera to make pics.

but i can show you some pics of the case with some added comments

side case open: Link
In place of the top fan left i have the watercooled antec 920 h2o, with 2 fans in pull/push mode, to cool the i7-2600K cpu,mounted on a asus p8p67 mobo with 8 gig ddr3 1600 ram, both blowing air in the case from the outside.
powersupply i use is a coolermaster 750 watts, and next to it was also some space to mount another fan in the floor of the case.in the hd brackets i have 1 samsung 840 250gig ssd as bootdrive, 1 ocz vortex 2 120 gig, 1 ocz synapse cache ssd to cache my 2 TB WD HD, so it acts as a hybrid hdd/sdd solution , thruput 250mb a sec, and a evga nvidia 660 sc graphics card
and soundblaster x-fi titanium.

top view: Link
the corsair fans are replaced by 2 noctuas NF-S12B FLX, blowing air outside the case

left side view of case: Link
front and side fans have adjustable speed by means of a switch on front of the case. both sets r blowing air inside case.

front view: Link
top slot i placed as usual my dvd writer a cheap one.and 2 slots down, the frontpanel of the soundblaster x-fi, also on top of the frontpanel is a switch to switch the fan leds on/off of the 2 front intake fans and the big side fan.

black and white case views: Link

thank you @Jackbig I appreciate it.
And about the h80&90 it's a bit steep for my needs, I wont be doing any oc any time soon and I know the K series is well suited for oc, nevertheless if and when I'll decide to do oc I'll purchase a cooling solution much more fitting.

One of my rigs has an h80 and I use it on the lowest fan setting, no OC and it purrs like a baby kitten.

I.e. very quiet.

I was just saying as many people have found the h60 not that great. But hey maybe they have improved them, but last I heard the h60s were supposed to be scrapped.

Well Idk about the H60 but I found excellent reviews on the H55 and from my understanding it's a best seller because of the performance to price ratio:
