    Working on the pictures...be patient!
    As for cost, not as much as you may think! Quite a lot of it was scrap, I already a donor case for the insides, so I guess all I bought was:
    Sheet of 1.5mm aluminium - £20
    Sheet of cheapy B&Q plexi type stuff - £25
    Car window tint film - £18 (ouch!)
    Door knob feet - £10
    Electronics for all mods - £125 ish (But don't tell the missus)
    Apart from that, everyhing else was just ripped from my old case - lighting, fans, psu's, etc.

    EEEEXCELLENT! muhahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! no seriously that's one bitchin case...
    As for bmh.01 welcome to the forums. i think your siggy is just a tad bit too long... if you don't mind me saying so... we really don't need to know every tiniest little detail about your system. i doubt anyone needs you hdd's model number, and you could just shorten it by deleting some of the spaces inbetween or leaving some things out... i know several forums where your siggy max is 3 lines... yours is 18. right. exceeleent case though.

    Nice case Kong, kinda Buck Rogers stylee :) Anyway, I remember you posting a while back about your windowed hdd, and I remember thinking how great the rimmed activity and power lighting looked.

    Thing is, in the annotated pic, you've said that the 'real' hdd is mouted at the back. Does this mean that you've actually 'deaded' the windowed one, and just kept it in there coz it looks bloody awesome?

    Damn it! Knew some clever dick would catch me out! Yeah, that drive has just started playing up, so I disabled it in the BIOS. Anyways, it was only 3.2GB (Samsung, Behemoth), so I got a 60GB around the back. Didn't plan to hide it, just ran out of space to mount it!

    Tomorrow, pics, I promise!
    I'm just finnishing off the front and will be ready tomorrow, so I will take box apart and get some pics of the inside at the same time! It's actually quite a big job to get decent pics of the inside of the case as it doesn't come apart too easy!

    Psycho, plexi is 5mm
    Complex, fan monitors are over on cpemma's site
