    This is the best piece of craftsmanship I've seen all year in 09. The aluminium is top notch, the woodworking is immaculate and the over all finish and design is amazing. This is in the Top 2 mods of all time for me. MOTY 09.

    Wow, I don't know if I'm more in awe of the finished product or the time, effort and skill it took to create it. Your creation is simply elegance at it's finest. Truly beautiful. This is something I would expect to see in the White House or Buckingham Palace.

    Simply one of the best mods I've ever seen. Beautiful, elegant, subtle, well engineered, functional, ingenious. Definitely my pick for MOTY.

    Wow, that's quite possibly the most beautiful case mod I have have ever seen.

    Well done indeed.

    Wow. If I were able to choose from any of the mods I've ever seen to own for myself, I'd pick this one.

    I love PC's for the things they do, but rarely do I love them simply for the way they look - this is one of those rare exceptions, (it's rather like a finely crafted Humidor).

    Absolutely incredible. This is a masterwork to rival the best wooden cases done by any number of others on this sight. I feel almost discouraged to build my own wooden case (almost, mind you) simply due to the fact that I could not match such a glorious design.

    Bravo!

    Truly an awesome piece of art! Done with fantastic craftmanship and good taste. Very inspiring indeed.

    I have to complain about one thing though (not related to this case at all): This is NOT a case-mod .. This is a custom case. Doesn't a mod imply that it was done by modifying something already existing? This maybe a bit pedantic, but this has annoyed me a bit over the years I've been following this "scene". I think calling a 100% fabricated custom PC case a mere modification is an insult to the artist who placed many hours of manual labor into building something unique. Am I alone on this matter?

    I'm curious what the overall weight of it is, and could I actually move it without a team of strong guys or a forklift. :)

    Very nicely done.
