    if thats 1,5 mm steel plates that you are going to use, that case will be as massive as a minor black hole. I guess, this case isnt made for lan parties, since it will be too heavy to transport with a normal family vehicle :)

    Hmm The look was one thing the G5 did have going for it... I saw one with massive amounts of blue light flooding from it, and it was definetly classy... Ill be interested to see how this turns out, and keep up the great work.

    very nice material selection :thumb:

    where did you get the steel with the slots in it? was it from something else or do they sell it like that? (this is assuming you didnt make those slots yourself...)


    anyway, looks awesome so far :D

    <footnote> less time organizing screws for a picture = more time modding :hehe:

    Vazz :rock:

    I hope it never brakes because unscrewing all those screws would suck.
