    Is that big chunk of metal to wick heat, or is it something for the screws to grab?
    -Or is it just to look cool.:D

    Thanks b4oz,
    Cheapskate; Just to look cool. :naughty:


    The parts for the hinges arrived yesterday only two months after ordering and
    paying for then. :eyebrow:


    All the panels have been anodised and the only other thing of note is that for
    the slot loader, I couldn't get it to work in Vista with a SATA connection so this
    was swapped to work via internal USB, now it works great.
    Here's some pics of the finished chassis:

    Wrap this sexy thing in some clear acrylics I'd suggest. Covering this piece of art in a box would be shame tbh :D

    Wow. This looks cleaner and simply more awesome with every revision. And to think we're not even going to be able to see all this work when it's done...

    Looking forward to the coming stages!

    Has to be PhotoShopped!!! LOL

    Just marvelous. I know from discussions that there is going to be an outer case, but the only case this needs is a glass case in an art museum.
