    Love scratchbuilds, they constantly inspire me to try one myself one day. ATM my wallet and my neighbours wouldn't appreciate me turning the apartment into a mod-shop. :)

    Those spines make me think of an old russian train, dunno why. Like it :)

    yeah, the scratch builds in my opinion are the best choice of modding because you can set all meausure without case limits... so, scratch build sometimes are more expensive than case modding but by this you can have more satisfactions! ;)

    yes, this case is inspired to predator and raven case :)

    Thanks thegyufi! :thumb:

    I just got one of those PSU's. I was planning on re-sleeving them, but in their stock form they do not like bending one bit, so looks like i'll have to :-(

    Great looking front, can't wait to see it all painted. And I must say, your workplace is awesome. It's a very very small balcony right? Kudos to you for doing all this in such limited space :)

    yes the enermax cable are more strengt than other PSU... but in my opinion this is better because the cable "stay together" :thumb:
