    This is coming along nicely! Bit much with the bolts for my taste, but I can see how it fits with the industrial theme. Love your steel.

    for better airflow wouldn't you benefit from another fan inbertween the fan on the bottome of the front and the cd drives, correct meif i'm wrong though

    nice use of steel! bravo, looks alot like a Lian Li, except better :)
    How did you manage to paint the mobo without covering necissary contacts (like the little contacts inside the PCI slots, pins-receptacles in the socket, etc)?!

    Nice mod. That looks really factory like. Just put a little teeny weeny bit of rust in the corners or somewhere. That was just an idea so if you don't like it, ignore it.

    Keep modding

    I don't think you ever need to worry about over heating. That case is one giant heat sink.

    Bending steel can be a pain. Did you do it by hand or use a pan-break or something?

    Looks sweet. Keep up the updates

    This mod is giving me inspiration to do something similar, I really like the way its turning out. Very good job man :).


    One sugestion, although the whole 'mesh' type stuff you used is a really good way to improve all around airflow, you should cut out where the fans are and use standard fan grills, alot less restrictive.

    x86's revenge?

    Nice heavy industrial feel. What's the paintjob going to be, or are you going to leave it as it is, perhaps just a going over with clear coat?
