    Hello everyone!!

    The Steam'n Geek is now finished, so I decided to start another scratch build totally different. This project is called Equilibrium. It will be done with mdf and acryl.

    Here some sketchup pictures

    Concerning hardware, really duno yet. I will surely wait for the new socket 1150, and add a cross of 7970 or sli gtx 680 :worried:. All this will be watercooled.

    I started the build last week:

    4 panels will be done with mdf/acryl/mdf, and leds will be mount on acryl to give a light effect like this one

    Hope you'll like this project ;)


    Updates soon....



    Bye

    I like those sandwich-styled cases. Easy to build, allows for great airflow, and still looks very interesting and elegant.

    Not too big a fan of windows in sidepanels tho.
