    bloody hellfire...

    I love the colour, I am trying a similar finish with my own first mod but the time limit on it (School AS project) means the finish isn't quite as smooth as I would like.

    I've been a little sidetracked with exams and things... but there's a 200 man LAN on this weekend, so I built this little HDD activity light... you all remember Lady Penelope from The Thunderbirds right? :D

    I've finished the side panels bits, just waiting for the paint to dry. Hopefully more pics tomorrow :)

    That case is looking mighty sweet. Love the airflow modding. Gives me crazy ideas. Like someone said before, nice to see something besides a bunch of holes drilled into it. Very inovative. Great job. :thumb:

    Mostly finished now. I've just brought a matx board and some water gear to build another PC out of, so this one will probably be fairly neglected.

    Although once the waterblock for the gpu arrives, I'll majorly tidy up the water system.

    all i can say is wow. That's a nice case dude. However - you really should paint those CD drives and your PSU - for all around purple goodness. Love the ducts!

    that is the best looking Thermaltake thing I've ever seen...

    the chrome... looks like a huge iPod (thats a good thing)

    and the ducts are superb; the look is fantastic; nice to see that you took the time to finish them off..

    i've alwayts really hated the look of the TT cases but this looks incredible! You've really modded it a lot, but still retained the distinctiveness of the Xaser case while also making it a lot less cheesy-looking. That chroming job looks amazing, if the foto is any indication, you kind of 'lose' the case due to the reflectiveness.

    :thumb:

    i was thinking, considering u goto a lot of LAN's it mite be worth installing some nice chrome handle in the top. If u got some decent ones they'd look awesome and obvioulsy be funcitional aswell.
