    this has to be one of the most dedicated mods i´ve seen in a long time dude!
    you inspire me to put extra effort in my own mod, just by showing how good it can be done!

    Had to share;)

    I've heard that remark a couple times in the last few years. I think that's why we do this craziness. Not to show off but to share.

    Cygnus X1 has ideas just falling out of every pic. The time you took to explain and answer questions and the 'well that didn't work' or 'Let's try something else' is just inspirational to all of us.

    Got any Modern Art Museums near you? We could start an email campaign for a showing!:clap::clap:

    oh my lord that brings tears to my eyes :waah:
    i had to register just to say that lol

    My favorite part of the case is the top view with the fins and the lighting. Looks extremely sick. The curves on the outer panels look great, and I also love how the two side panels make the thing look so stalwart. Like two towering shields guarding an entryway. Or carved into stone on either side of a waterfall. It's a beast.

    So I'm a relative Newbie to PC mods...but I do cars..and MTBs...but JAYSUS..(for non bog trotters...JESUS)....I cannot for the life of me remember so much given by so few for even less.....This has to be the most poignant moment in PC mod history....forget steampunk, forget those that send parts for powdercoat...forget those that mod some plexi.....scratch built...and I do mean..from component articles...well I'd aspire to have even 0.01% of your ability...and 10% of your tooling...I so ...bow down.. as WE are NOT worthy...( I had tears in my eyes whilst showing this to my wife..no joke)...so choked was I....I sat and read thru every last post...replies and all... and I cannot comprehend where you managed to conceive and then put into play all of this build....I prostrate myself in front of you...unworthy...( I prefer bolt on mods...with minimal exertion to my cowardly being..)..I can do electronics..I can passably do some woodwork...but nay...I have no godlike tendency such as yourself......(this is with no ribbery whatsoever...)....I just cannot describe the whole glow that I am feeling for this build....So thank you for giving me and a whole lot more a nice warm tummy feeling for the build that was completed here...JBZG

    I can tell that this mod is going to be very big. I haven't seen so much hype about an Australian mod since Defyant's "HP" mods and Sethnmalice's awesome creations.

    Attila, you deserve every ounce of the accolades you're receiving - and more.

    You've created something very special and I must say that the more I look at it, the more I like it.

    I tip my hat to you Sir and offer my congratulations and thanks for not only producing a masterpiece, but also for inspiring me in the process.

    I look forward to following whatever you've got in store for us next. :)
