    Beautiful, You have given me some Ideas for the clear case Im making now. Truly awesome. If you changed the green to red and discoloured the chrome slightly7 it could very easily pass for a "matrix" case - I saw the octopi in the power boxes too.

    :jawdrop:

    And keep it up I cant wait...

    WOW, I gotta tell ya, this is one amazing project... the progress is unbelievable and it is one of the best mods i have ever seen... it is truly... great

    especially for a clear case nonetheless... usually i do not like the look of clear cases at all, but i think you are getting me interested... i have always wanted to do some type of mod with a clear case to make it something original... because the stock parts of some things make it look so ugly... and nearly impossible to tidy... and what you are doing will completely change that, and probably give hundreds of people new ideas...

    i too am another Onion....

    i love some of your original ideas, the junction boxes make the look really amazing... especially with the shower head rope

    the chrome parts i think is a perfect touch for the case (bringing in none clear parts can always change things but chrome is perfect, especially with the green glowing you got going on in there)

    Theres so many compliments to say, each individual mod was done very well, great job and i hope to see updates... i will be watching for them :)

    Almost speechless :) I try to find something to "bitch" about, so far that is not possible. The only thing my case has going for is: It is an aquarium and all is submerged. Now I guess I have to work a little to beef it up a tatt but will never be in your range.
    :waah: :hip:
    Thanks for your excellent pictures.
    My little project.

    People keep saying that they hate clear PCs... I too am one of them. The difference between G-gnomes case and other standard clear cases, is that there is actually a reason to look at it inside and out!!! Thats why I don't even have a window mod on my system, cause the inside is boring.

    This case and its internal parts are pure art. Hands down, this is the only clear pc I have ever liked, and is probably the best modded case I have seen.

    omg u have no idea what this means
    i, first of all, could never design, make (nor afford :hehe: ) such remarkable mods such as those.
    everyone may as well give up because nothing will come near beating this for quite some times :clap:

    as for being a newbie, rofl, you make newbies look like newbies at the fetus level
    :D
    thats definately l337

    Looking increadably good G-Gnome... Noramally I can think of something more constructive to say then just 'wow' but it's difficult here - which is a testiment to you attention to detail. I've noticed loads of thing like the fact you've already removed the stickers from your harddrives and polished them...!

    Actually one quick thing - the mobo atx power connector isn't fully in it's sheath (ie. you can see plain wire) what's happening here - especially if you've finished the PSU project part?

    Normally I don't go for the clear cases unless they attract attention to the nice parts of a PC. The trouble is that they always show some cheap, ugly things like cicuit boards for card readers.
    You don't have any ugly bits, it's amazing. So many pretty things, there's always something to catch your eye.

    You've managed to take three very showy and so often garish materials/finishes and combine them into one of the most balanced builds I've ever seen.

    Congradulations.

    Hi Maeterlinck :)

    Thanks for your kind words. Yes, I have already removed my HDD stickers. No, they aren't polished properly (yet) they are pretty shiny already though but I will take to them and hand polish to a nicer shine when I get to installing them.

    As for the PSU, those exposed wires won't be visible at all when the case is finished (nor will the ATX connector). Can't say any more at this stage, you know how it is ;) but thank you for noticing and commenting.

    To Zapwizard - Thanks for your comments earlier re:spam and keeping posts relevant, etc. Much appreciated! I hope everyone will stick to these.

    The comments and feedback I have been getting so far have been brilliant and I take my hat off to all who have posted, /humbled.

    Nice to see even more Onions posting here - I wondered why I had tears in my eyes! :D

    /me inkels at what you may be doing...
    I think I have an idea of what you are going to do - based on what you've done already... I won't say anything but will let you know how close I was when you reveal all...

    I the mean time I think I'll twiddle my thumbs...

    Just wanted to pipe in to mention that your case was mentioned in the 2cpu forums with lots of good comments there.

    I like how the metal conduit stuff looks crossing between the reserviors. Very choice. I may have to borrow that idea for a tubing cover for my rackmount watercooling system. :D

    On a humor note, it's kinda like this Penny Arcade cartoon, except replace "Diablo 2" with this case! :thumb:

    Excellent work.

    Damn guy, and for a first try too.. One word

    1337.

    I loved the use of more subtle lighting just goes to show you don't have to blind everyone within 10' to make it look cool. The plastic project boxes chromed were a super nice touch as well.

    Definately going to pay attention to this and any future logs of yours as well... Do you have a website up for it yet? If not you should. I see several projects in there that anyone would wanna look into more closely.

    I'm sure it's been a hell of an expensive project, but to achieve greatness you have to innovate and spend some bucks. You've obviously done both! Amazing job.
