    Thats good to hear, thanks for tuning in Jason :D

    Here are some screen shots of the left custom side panel drawing in progress... The vents above the window are 1/4" wide. Smaller opening to right will be access doorway to HD bays.

    Still dabbling with the panel design, but committed to window location on the 600T's panel.

    That is going to be one beefy side panel :rock:. I like it! I liked the duct over the hdd cage in the concept drawing. Are you planning on keeping that design or moving to an "open" window?

    Glad you like it Scott. It will be an Access door to the HD cages. The striped portion is the handle

    An access door? So you won't have to remove the side panel to swap out HDDs Bill?

    Very interesting project - I will definitely follow this.

    I was also wondering if there´s enough space under the top mesh for one more 120mm blowhole? I´m thinking about modding this case to hold 360 rad in the roof..

    QFT, And best accidental double meaning ever posted.:D


    2 things:
    -I'd like to see you make a cover for the unused and visible wiring grommets.
    -More armor panels! Tank it up! A couple on top mounted with those rubber washers/spacers you like might be cool.:D

    @boy, Yes. I thought it would cool.

    @stonedsurd, glad you it.

    @phinix. Thanks for tuning phinix!

    @StonieX, thanks, sorry I haven't had more updates

    @cheaps, How about billet plugs for unused watercooling in/outlet holes?

    @Zesti, you will have to modify the exterior plastic, so the entire 360 rad has ventilation

    You can see the top panel exposed @ 3:00 into video review

    That would work, but seeing that pic in the video makes me realize the grommets are all behind the mobo. -It would be overki.... nevermind.:D

    I love a bit of grime so those concept pics have got my interest, it looks a smashing case to start with too.

    A door in front of the HD bays, ingenious.

    As my computer decided to double post might as well use this message to say I'm with Cheaps, can't beat a PC with some ablative armour panels.

    Maybe it's trying to tell me I shouldn't be on bit-tech at work:blah:

    Yeah, ablative armor! -only I didn't want to use that word because it implies the parts fall off.:hehe: It also brings to mind 'chocolate bar panels' seen on Russian tanks. That wasn't the look I was hoping to see here.
    Countersunk is the sh*t. You know what I like.:D

    lol, I'll have to image search for those tanks. Countersunk holes for 10/32 socket head screws, in the channel around the border and attaching window.
