    Greetings by G69T.

    Following I'll describe you, what I'm thinking to do: my way of modding.
    Starting from my first project (born in 2003), I'll arrived to this new modding: The Dark Blade

    My original case mod: The very first one.

    CNC milling machine.

    CNC automatic lathe.

    The columns of the Dark Blade are very particular; they have a cuttering profile, like the top and the bottom.
    There also will be a water cooling system.

    At the bottom there will be a led system, lightening the entire case.

    That's an image of the original plan.

    The image of the Dark Blade new base.

    This picture shows the difference beetween the columns profile.

    The column polishing with a traditional lathe.
    Some pictures about that :)

    Three are the columns: row (Alu D 50 mm.) - Original (G69T Classic) - Dark Blade

    The 8 columns, the base profile, Central support and the top.

    That's an assembled test - even not polished - to have an idea of the outcome.

    one day you are going to come home stumbling drunk and kill yourself on those corners. or you could insulate the hell out of it, put it on a dremel and make one awesome killing machine.

    I'm probably going to be a repeat here, but got to give credit where credit is due. This is an insane mod. So precise, so ingenious, so original.... I love it. I can't wait for the next update.

    Dude I loved your orginal case (saw it awhile back if memory serves me right). I always wanted to copy it and built some servers with it (stacking them of course :) ).

    I'll have to watch how this one comes out.
