    Thanks a lot guy's :thumb: I'm numb :hehe:
    I'll write more in the MOTY thread, but I will say that planning for the next box is
    well underway (see avatar), and because I build around the hardware, well, now I have all this
    new stuff I need to start over. :lol: What a lovely problem to have. :D

    Thanks again everyone.
    And Fisher, long time me no look you. :hehe:

    I am usually pretty good about monitoring bit-tech's articles and forums, and I STILL can't find where I missed CX1 winning!

    Regardless, congrats!
    (I called this way back in the Fall ;) )

    I love how you celebrate by placing a the tease of your next project up as an avatar ;)

    Well deserved.

    Ive said it before and I say it again. I really like the way you manage to create something that look so professional without the use of advanced tools like CNC mills and such. Plain good oldschool work with tools that anyone can afford makes it a great inspiration to new modders.

    Looking forward to your next build with all that hardware.

    Not really a surprise but well done!
    The shipping people will have a separate truck just for all your winnings.

    Cygnus is done, John is sad and happy. Sad this project is done but happy for you.

    Congratulations mate! I don't know about anyone else, but I've downloaded and enlarged your avatar to get some idea of what you are working on next. :D Also, I'm really hoping that the next project takes more than a year... ya know, to give everyone else a chance for MotY... :lol:

    Haha, thanks a lot everyone. :)

    @Burnout21. Yep there is a lot of stuff I wouldn't normally buy, because quite frankly I cant
    afford to. 600 dollar graphics card, 500 dollar SSD, all out of my price range. :hehe:

    @jhanlon303. Don't be sad John I'm not. ;) I'm looking forward to making something new.

    @shomann, craigbru. The avatar will have to change when I get the booty, but some
    elements will be kept. :D

    Yes I'll be using the CPU, GFX, Mobo, RAM, PSU, and SSD in Na'ir al Saif. I may even use the
    H50 CPU cooler, but I have to have a look at it first. :hip:

    Such a case you have created oldnewby! It's not just a case, it's a work of art. The attention to detail and all your custom solutions are just breathtaking, outstanding!
    The thing I love the most about this case is that you've done pretty much everything purely by hand. You haven't used any top of the state CNC-mills or such equipment. All is done by filing, bending, drilling and so on.
    Furthermore the result of your craftmanship is flawless. If you look at edges, all the countersunk holes and such you can not see a single piece of scratch or ununiformity.

    You are a source of inspiration and you have me truly breathtaken by this project
    I can't wait to see what you have in store for us in the future.

    Thanks stone. :thumb: Yeah the name means "bright one of the sword" so I guess it's
    going to be shiny and maybe pointy. ;)

    Haha, I think they made that case way before CX1. :hehe:

    Thank you very much NysoO. :thumb: I hope you start something new soon.;)

    Thanks. :)

    Thanks. :)

    I was meaning to ask you, were did you get hold of these sprints and bushings? I really liked your hinge-design and might use a variation of it in my next build(Which is just a concept at the moment though).
