    Cha ching! You gotta love the polished aluminum :hehe:

    I really like your design and method of extending this PSU pod, that'll go great with the rest of the case.

    Any news on the monitor support, has the work begun on that?

    ^^^ I found a supplier for the board in Malibu... he makes "decorative" surfboards... using Kaya Mahogany, Sapele Mahogany, Ash, Birch and Clearheart Redwood. They're usually sold to be used as tabletops or wall hangings. The good news is that he makes them in the perfect size, because one of his "common" sizes is 75 inches long, 18 inches wide and 2-1/4 inches thick...

    But that's as far as that's gone... it'll be awhile before digging into that part. :hip:

    Dang, that board is really going to look apart with 3 x 30" monitors attached to it :hehe:

    Are you going to use just this kind of board or have you thought about painting a board to match the rest of the case? I'd think it'd be cheaper when he could make it from cheaper materials for you and you'd get it painted.

    I think that the only downside of using a surfboard would be that when there's three huge monitors attached to it, it won't exactly look like a surfboard anymore. I actually was expecting a polished aluminum rack for the monitors with two or more feet like on your DVD drive. I just think that it would go with the theme a bit better. Just my 0,02$...

    This whole thread is, how would I say it, right up my alley, so I'll be keeping my everwatching eye on this, lol.

    ^^^ Let's just say I tend to come up with an idea, draw out some sketches, then let it "brew" for awhile. So the short answer to your question is that I just don't know yet. :D

    About making it myself to save money, making surfboards is an art unto itself and having a something there that isn't done "right", well, that would be sad. But then, we'll see. :hip:

    Oh, I didn't mean that you'd make the board yourself, just the paintjob or maybe have him paint it for you. Just meant that he might be able to do it from a bit cheaper wood than mahogany if it's going to be painted.

    And I do know the "brewing" stage of parts, I tend to do that also, but in my head. And the part where I said that an aluminum rack would be a better fit for this mod was because if you mount a 30" monitor to somewhat middle of the board and the other two bending a bit inwards (at outer corners), there won't be much board left to look at. Well that was kind of weird way to say it, but I think you can translate that :D

    Well I'm sure that you'll once again find a solution which will blow us away, keep on modding :hehe:

    For all my opinion is worth, I think the way to go is a nice wooden board like the one in the pic. Having the monitors match the computer is probably pretty important, but having a nice wooden board to tie it all together seems like the way Big Daddy woulda gone.

    Awesome machine, btw. I registered and came out of lurking just so I could say so. Now you gotta build a car to go with it.

    !!

    This is a tremendous--machine.. I all but promise, (in fact I am sure) it's totally unique..
    For this machine not to be featured on the bit-tech "main-site" (for me) is beyond-believe..
    The only reason I could see is that it went under there radar.. It was built quickly and did not get the "hits" other "high-end" projects have enjoyed..

    @ bit-tech:
    What--gives ? read your forums fellas' how can you over-look a project like this?
