    I somehow expected that you will rotate MBO when you wrote "...build a better one in my style." :D

    No acrylic pipes :D!

    Just Clear 1/2size tubing, the acrylic is to small for such a big case :) just my opinion :)

    Interesting beginning, knowing your pedigree 'n all.
    I know it's a bit late, but I still wait for the first person to flip the entire case instead of flipping the I/O + mobo panel. Imagine all wires going in a duct/shroud UNDER or OVER the PC instead of simply pluggin' into the back.
