    Do you really need a reset button ? You can also push 5seconds the power button to reset the computer...

    Like that, you will need only ONE BUTTON :grin:

    I know, but it's not a big job and it's already half done but I'll think about it, for sure it would be more clean without it.

    I'm preparing the case for the photos, and I'm going to wrap the handle with the paracord.

    I couldn't update yesterday because my MB BIOS wasn't the latest version, so it wouldn't boot.

    I had to ask my brother to download the latest one, and lend me his CPU to install it.

    Then for whatever reason the MB wasn't completely happy, now if the 3200g is on and the RAM is in the first MB slot it doesn't boot but if it's in the second it does.

    Now it works, and to be honest having only one RAM stick right now I can live with having it in the 2nd slot, I wasted enough hours for now on it, so I'm going to investigate the situation in the future.

    I wanted a neutral colour for my first couple of shells, and I had this leather and black Alcantara around, because I used them on some of my car upholstery.

    I crafted the shells relatively simple, I was already pretty sure that I'm going to change colour of them sometime, the more time consuming part of the process is the sewing.

    In the future if I want, I can craft some new shells copy and wrap them with different textures and/or colour in a week or so, then it's just a swap like you do with a smartphone.

    Did that material come with the diamond pattern, or did you have to suffer through sewing the padding on like that?
    I'm not sure I like the padded covers, though. It hides all your wonderful bend work.

    Thankfully I'm not at that level of craziness, I bought it already quilted.

    I know how to make a padded quilt pattern, as I said I had it at home, I didn't see any point in having to endure in such painful adventure for this project.

    About the shells, I like the case with or without them, they give the case a more mature and complete vibe, and even when they are on you can still see a lot of it through the windows.

    With them on it's like a intelligent hot woman with a thigh leather dress, even if I don't see it all I'm really happy :grin:.

    I've made the photos, but it took some hours, I'm checking them before posting.

    Update incoming.

    I'm sorry but I won't have pets in my photos, my little baby is no longer with us.
    I'm going to post the rest of the photos later.

    Rear Cable Guide Closed and Open, I have added some neoprene padding to protect the acrylic from scratches caused by the guard and the cables.

    Lovely. I feel the urge to lick it. :D I like how you installed the switches.
    Thermaltake is going to copyright all your silly part names. (Yes, you may have swept it under google's rug, but we still remember.)

    Oh My, Oh My :duh: I modified on the fly every silly name with other new silly ones, because I made a google search and the results were unexpected, I do deeply apologize to anyone who might have been offended in any way, it wasn't intentional.

    Thanks @Cheapskate that pushed me to do a Google search I should have done before posting.

    Thanks all, I'm really happy you like the case too, now that it is wrapped it lost a bit of that thingy over the top effect, but it is a lot more refined and elegant now in real life.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Here is the video, I'll try to make a better one, the main light under the top fan in real life was white during the filming, but I couldn't fix the colors in a decent way so I'm gonna post it without edits.

    the video link doesn't work I'm working on it.

    So the video link embedding was kind of a bit messy business but it works as a normal link, I'll try to make a Video with better quality, then I'll upload it on another site and make a good link with preview.

    I have chosen to change the status of the project to complete, but these kind of projects are never complete.

    I'll start a new project log about the case docking station.

    In the next week I'll test the two AMD wraith fans I have from the two CPUs, because their specs looks good and I'm not using them on the CPU, so I'll test them on the GPU and I'll probably modify the GPU cooler if they work better than the two I'm using now :dremel:.

    Here some info about the case dimensions
