Thanks guys. @ Beast the intakes will be polished to mirror finish. The pads and supports will also be polished. The interior will be mostly anodised but the case will be painted. Colour is still to be decided between a very narrow range of metallic charcoal/silver. Thanks for the kind words Seba. I have high hopes for the final look and do hope it will be at least close to the picture in my head.. Thanks, I'm still wrestling with putting some i/o in between the fins. But I don't really find these important any more as in my case a least, I have four USB ports on my monitors that I use. And if it means choosing between utility or aesthetics, well, the latter always wins. Of course I'm still open to other locations for these so I wont say that they will be absent just yet. Thanks alain. Thank you, it weighs 7 kilo's. Thanks monkeyfun, I have never modded a case before and I don't feel an compelling desire to. Having said that, I have to mod an old apple PC for my daughter after cl is done.
