    There's still more to come. I'll be adding the AMD logo's next. The one for the front grill will be cut from aluminum and bolted, hovering over the front mesh intake.

    So I hear, but it's still free to me. Only real expenses are the Motherboard ($150) and RAM ($100)

    So I figured out what cooling I'll be using...

    The Swiftech H20-220 Edge Liquid Cooling Kit is something we sell in the store for $309. I want all of the parts in this case to be things customers can buy in the store and not have to go to Newegg

    I already have the OCZ Revo Hybrid, the Radeon 6950, and the 16GB of RAM. I still have to buy the motherboard and W/C kit and the PSU hasn't yet arrived. The entire component build and W/C install will be coming once it's all here.

    I promise.

    Great looking build. Good case choice for an industrial-look :D

    Love the tracks idea, if, one day, you could assemble a motorised set, it really would be the icing on the cake :D

    Cool project! I was just thinking - how about putting those tracks on the side of the case? I think it would make the case look more realistic and beefier.

    Enermax came through with three 120mm TB Silence fans

    [​IMG]

    And a new 850 watt 80 Platinum PSU

    [​IMG]

    I changed out my front intake fans

    [​IMG]

    And the rear exhaust

    [​IMG]

    I even removed the top 200mm fan, because I will be needing that space for two 120mm fans on my radiator

    [​IMG]

    I've been thinking in advance about the length of my video card being 11 inches

    [​IMG]

    And how it's just not going to fit

    [​IMG]

    Since I won't be using the hard drive bay, I removed it

    [​IMG]

    Much better

    [​IMG]

    I 've been wanting to add an AMD logo to the front of the case

    [​IMG]

    So, I cut one out.
