    I've been away for a while and to find this when I got back was the best greating ever.
    It's been a joy to watch something so professional take shape from the very beginning. Congratulation on a magnificent and well executed project Achron.

    I went through your thread at [H] and I had to come say it here also.

    You Sir have some mad skills and I could not even dream about creating something as epic as you have.

    Let me start by giving a big, hearty "thank you" to everyone that commented here. There's not going to be room enough to quote everyone,
    else I would take up a single page simply for that! I'm truly touched by your comments and kind words, and it means a lot to me that you enjoy my work as much as I do.

    Also found out some good news today. I made the front page of [H]ardOCP! Sa-wheet!

    Lighting is shipped and on the way, also!


    And all I have to say is, much appreciated, Angel!


    Ha! But, ew.


    I'm going to look into that. Thanks for the advice!


    Thanks, Attila. Glad to see you back, too!


    Oh I'm sure you could come up with a few new ones...just start making words up! I'm truly happy that the acrylic turned out the way it did. It's more clear than I could have ever imagined. Thanks for following, Cheap.


    I appreciate you following it all this time, and I apologize for making you wait so long! I, too, love how it hides just the right amount of hardware.


    Thanks! I think the photos could be better, but maybe that's my inner perfectionist coming out. We will see once I get some more time this weekend to do more pictures.


    So awesome...


    Thanks bud! I'm super excited to see the final pictures of your baby as well. I look forward to seeing it in MOTY!!


    It looks less opaque than it actually is. The lighting really makes it transparent. When there's minimal or no lighting (just normal background lighting), you really can't see through it; the reason I picked it in the first place.


    You roll! Thanks for following, my man.

    Awesome dude, just awesome. I think I may abstain from voting in MOTY this year. It's only April and there's so many projects already that I couldn't hope to choose between!

    Thanks guys. Don't abstain, but yes, I agree that there are a ton of projects that are amazing this year.


    Thanks. My intent was to stray as far as possible from a traditional design as possible, and it seems like I've succeeded!

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    I'm alive! Short story here. I may or may not have, when taking the last set of pictures, blown out the picoPSU. I can't remember if I mentioned this or not (too scatter-brained to check). Turns out, I may have crossed a ground and a + line to the HD. Oops! Good thing it didn't blow the HD. Well, I bought a new one and it's been sitting apart since then...

    ...until now. I took the opportunity last night to take a few more pictures of the professional quality after putting it all back together (and making sure it works). I hope you enjoy them, as I think they are miles ahead of the last bunch.

    Thanks all for your support, comments, and criticism along the way. This will probably be the last update here, so see you in my next build!

    P.S. If you want high-res photos, as in full-size JPEG from RAW photos, just PM me and let me know. I'll throw things up in a dropbox or something so you can have them.
