    Great Job!
    ... the comment that it "Looks Factory" is spot on and a great compliment on the cleaness of design, and exicution of the work done

    very very very sleak design and implementation. I always liked the name too :)

    What irks me though is the fact that you are photgraphing it with a stock Dell display featuring a Vista logo. The Vista i can almost understand, but a Dell? :(

    Anyway, praise!

    What more can be said? Cyp, congrats! Awesome mod, awesome job, awesome pics! :clap:

    I've been following this mod since almost the beginning, and though he had some rather long "pauses" (;)), the amount of detail and hard work this mod has is astounding. Cleaning all those holes must have been a real PITA.

    I can't praise you enough Cyp. I just love this mod. :rock:

    under the desk? Why would you want to have something this beautiful anwhere other than displayed proudly on top of your desk next to the monitor? (pretty much set up as shown in the thumbnail on the front page)

    Lovely and clean mod there!

    Agreed. This case needs to be on display front and center. It would be a crime to shove it under a desk. Great work Cyprio!

    MUAHAHA, its PC Guts~!!!

    Great job, I can see how you ran into problems with the internal layout. Requiring to remount the HDDs and such.

    I love that mobo, the Abit IP35. Its going to be my next mobo even though its getting old.

    Thanks everyone. It's been a long journey but i'm pretty pleased with the end result as well. The stock 20" Dell monitor (that has the same awesome S-IPS panel as an Apple one btw :p) is all i have right now but i thought the colours complemented the case well, hence the 'product shot'.

    Now what do i do with all my spare time?? :D

    Cyp.

    Thats just epic, someone needs to find the money for an apple 30" display (not the stupid new ones) and do that in polished aluminium with a black stand :)

    under? that's almost an insult it HAS to top of the desk, no on a pedestal in the middle of a dark room with spot lighting.

    I'd never think that I'd feel something for a mac case.

    P.S. I posted this before reading chaosdefines' post.

    Don't put ideas in my head! :D

    /me goes off to Ebay... yeaouch. That's at least £650 of monitor!

    Perhaps if i win the cash prize from the comp over at Custom Pcs i will reward myself. I guess it would at least cover a 23" one. :)

    what he did (and did better than I would have ever thought possible) was take what you pay loads of money for in apple products (the industrial design)

    and actually put some worthy innards in the thing, without all the proprietary nonsense.


    also fixed the "white plastic everywhere" issue very nicely.


    the end result is epic.
