    Been mega busy, had a lot going on, so not been able to do much, but I'll be getting stuck in to it tomorrow and it'll be finished by the end of the day...Weather permitting of course.

    Right then...I'm 99% done with this build. The front panel has had the window chopped in and been sprayed, just the window to fit tomorrow and it's back off to Tony..

    So heres a few pics of it as things stand right now. I'll get some decent out door shoots tomorrow.....

    So thats this one done and dusted. Thanks for looking..

    The next project is already in the planning stage I've got most of the bits I need. If the idea I've got in mind works it's going to be a right mental build, but thats for next time. :dremel:

    Thanks a lot Wayne. I like this colour scheme a lot, it might be appearing in a future build.

    It would be nice if he showed us it altogether once the hardware goes in...I'll have to ask him:idea:

    Thanks dude, it's going to be dragged to lan parties so the handles going to be pretty useful..

    Good evening Mr Led, nice of you to drop in...lol

    I'd love to see how much fun you could have with a Christmas tree mod...All those flashing lights, you'd be like a fat kid in a sweet shop:D:D:D

    The handle is essential for me, I tend to take far too much with me as it is, so makes carrying it a lot easier.

    People keep saying it needs LEDs, but I'm not very creative, hence Jeff doing the case. I'm open to suggestions as to what LEDs and where? I am considering a stencil of some kind for the window though, just not sure what yet.

    As for pictures of the build, I can do that. However, I'm considering an upgrade ready for the new Ivy Bridge, so I'll probably dump the contents of the old case in it for now and wait til I have all the parts before posting a log, as I have 2 lans I'm attending at the end of the month. I have seen some braided SATA cables on another log which I really like, and I'll possibly mod the psu cables for a better fit.

    If you're going to be using LED fans, they'll give off a nice gentle glow behind the window and through the front grills.

    I'll definitely be using LED fans. I already have blue, which are very nice. I'll try them in the new case, see if they compliment it. If not, I'll look into other colours.

    I should have tried a few fans like I said I would before I boxed it all up. Blue could work quite well the greens quite subtle..(Believe it or not) It's the flake that make it a bit lairy...lol

    I think green which is the obvious choice will work, but white LED fans would look really cool I reckon.
