    Purpose:

    Maximum usefulness (without fanaticism).
    The Silence.
    Good cooling.
    Strict but attractive exterior.
    Neatness internal device.

    Regrettably I have no information was on sale this model in USA and Europe, but in Russia from was much little. Yes and they long ago skim with production. The History exactly this copy it is enough long, I not even know where he stood before that how do I his(its) have presented. In my hands he has got more dilapidated and without some details. After not долгово uses I have considered his(its) uncomfortable and has sold. Only in year I have understood that has done this in vain. To my joys me his(its) have reselled without spare words.
    Before sale I several has worked on his(its) appearance, on how much was enough time.

    So far, the translator seems to be working :)

    That case sure has a lot of space. Going to fun watching you fill it up.

    Side note: Those feet give you enough room to put a toggle switch facing down on the front panel? Or did I misinterpret that pic?

    On the bottom part of the forward panel there was a button reset and cmos, the height of legs was sufficient, that them to press, in general the button reset was pressed by a foot:-D
    I have refused these buttons. :)
    All wires from buttons will be altered, the main thing will be defined with a braid for them and the optimum long.
    Hardware for filling of it case is not present, but I hope that will be, to begin with I will establish wothercooling, and then accessories.
    I will not assort the basic computer :)

    The size of that thing certainly allows you plenty of room to play with.

    What kind of watercooling to you intend to do? CPU & GPU, or just go the whole hog and do the bridges as well?

    I'll keep an eye on this.

    Complete set Dremel (Bosh) 426 (5 disks, 32мм) in Russia costs 514.08 rbl. In recalculation for dollars($) are ~16$ in Moscow, delivery to my city ~9$ and that for 5 disks for me stand 25$!
    One big disk (that that on a photo above) costs 0.7-1$! It is possible to make 5 disks which almost differ nothing from firm (a thickness 1.2мм), thus considering Of it that the big circle is calculated on the big loadings, my self-made circles grind off almost in 2 times more slowly and thus cut equally. :thumb:
    Quite good difference 25$ or 1$, isn't that so?:naughty:

    Ah nice! Exactly the same case which I'm modding:dremel:
    Only I added some blowholes and some paint. Modded the sidepanels the most ;)

    Good luck!:thumb:

    Thanks for support :)
    blowholes and painting necessarily will! About the beginning I will work all design features, then I will cut off all rivets, I will qualitatively paint and I will collect back :) still ahead! :) In the near future I will make blowholes and I will finish all internal surfaces with plastic to close superfluous technological apertures.
