    I really enjoyed watching this mod take shape when it was actually under construction, very very nice design and execution.

    I was just wondering E.E.L, who makes the PSU you settled on and where did you get it? You didn't really go into detail in the article.

    E.E.L turned us on to the Casetronic 120w psu from Logic Supply. A kit with the wall brick. H20-C7 has one too. We discussed small PSUs a lot

    A lovely little mod, and the usual quality we've come to expect. :)

    Nice work, though it just doesn't really float my boat.

    Sorry, but shouldn't this say 'peers'? 'And a few of my piers here on bit-tech have repeatedly asked for me to do a scratch-build, so I'm relenting. I've thrown caution to the reckless wind.' >_>

    Very inspiring!

    What was the size of the acrylic? 5mm all around for the main body, 3mm for the accents?

    Wow, you know what's funny? I had no idea this even went up. Here I am, late to the party as usual. LOL.

    Thank you eternally to Richard for bugging me about this article and for dealing with all the annoying IMs and e-mails when I didn't get something quite right. It's eternally appreciated, mate. And thank you to Bit-Tech site-wide; I love you all. Your support keeps me plugging away at this s**t!

    Like John said, the PSU is the Casetronic 120w psu from Logic Supply. It's a bit expensive, but for what you get it's quite solid. When you see the rails, you know where the cost went versus the other kits that supposedly have 'more' wattage; yeah, wattage where you don't really need it! ;)

    Back to my piers! ;) LOL. Thank you again to all of you! :clap:

    Edit: I'm sorry, Stuey; forgot to answer your Q! Uh, the top and bottom of the case was 3/8", so that's approx. 9mm thick(?) and the rest was 1/4" (approx. 6mm) and the mirrored acrylic is 1/8" (3mm). Hope that helps!
