    It looks just amazing! :thumb:

    I've always been a sucker for blue, but I just felt like people (including myself) went over the top with it! - This is just perfect! :)

    I like your new gfx, there's just one flaw... It neeeeeeeds water! :p

    Thanks Nicksen :) the purple light is actually UV, it serves the purpose to illuminate the blue plexi on the mid plate and the fluid in the tubing :) once the side panel is on you cant see the cathode itself :thumb:

    How the >H< >E< >L< >L< could I have missed this project? Subbed and subbed again!

    One small suggestion, though: the red PCI-E connector? Hnnnng.... not a fan!

    Thanks Nutman :D

    The PCI-E connectors are the last thing I need to do, I did order some but when they arrived they were the wrong shape :(
    Since then I've been to busy to work on her. Next time I get a few free hours I may just dye the red ones black, call it a day and get ready for project number 2 :D

    Yes, sticking to your plan and always making sure to have the goal in mind, is rather important to lay down some real progress. You could nitpick at small things - too much, aswell - or you could just dye to PCI-E connector and move on to E22 - which I'm dying (pun intended) to see started! :)

    Judging by the way this case turned out, I can only imagine what the next one is going to be.

    I have to admit that the new GPU does fit the build a lot better.

    Your photography still makes me jealous.

    As I've already said to you, this was one of a few projects that I have been following closely on bit-tech for the past few months and I've been constantly impressed with everything from the initial design to your workmanship and attention to detail in building the case. It's turned out fantastically - the addition of the new card really finishes it off nicely!

    Overall this was just a great project to follow and see finished, and I thoroughly look forward to your next one! The whole layout and "flow" of the project log is something that a lot of people overlook but I think you got it just right, with a nice balance of professional photography and workshop pictures and just the right amount of description. Again, as I've said to you before, it has inspired me to get my own workflow sorted out to make time to post some logs of my own in the near future.

    Bring on project number 2!

    Lol, love the pun :D I started writing a reply to your post but then got totally carried away so in the end I just added it all to the bottom :D

    Thanks Voigts, I'd trade my mediocre photo skills for your godlike woodworking in a heartbeat :D

    As with your previous message, you leave me pretty much speechless. I'm not that great at taking compliments and I'm even worse thinking what to say back to them so hopefully a simple thank you will suffice :blush:

    A year well spent if you ask me :D :clap: I'm glad you enjoyed it Dan :thumb:

    ----

    If I'm totally honest, Evolution was started as something to see what I could do and play about while learning how to work with aluminium, plexi and computer components in general. I never imagined it to end up gathering the attention that it has. In fact I was only really showing the log as more of a "watch me learn" blog :)
    However it is still in essence a trial run and there has to come a time when you say to yourself "is it worth spending more time on this when I could be starting something that will be perfection from the start?"
    So now that time has come and I've been fortunate enough to be able to put into motion E22 which will enable me to fulfil my dream of the next build and hopefully provide you folks with a few awesome products and services to help you make yours come true :)

    You do know that build no. 2 probably won't be your best build ever, don't you? ;)

Also by complete couicidence you've built my perfect pc case...HOW MUCH? ;D :D :thumb:
