    Hey guys, let's go!

    For this round of the MNPCTech Design contest, we're basing the designs on the Cooler Master HAF932!

    Incredibly hard question. Basic chassis I suppose. Do what you will with panels, front, top, mobo plate, drive bays etc but the bare frame needs to be the same size. Like a case mod rather than a scratch build)

    So, after spending some 2 hours with the provided SU-model I'm rather disappointed, as the model isn't particularily well done.

    So the question is, if it would still be within the rules to remodel it and improve on details of the hole thing.

    Yay, this one'll be fun to watch. I got a HAF, which I absolutely hate and am about to replace. Maybe this'll give me an idea on how to ehm... improve the fugly thing.

    It should be allowed to remodel it as you are still using the same case. So my case can be useful at least once.

    EDIT: Would I be allowed to use blender if I use the shaded view only?

    OK, I'm working on it and will share it tomorrow in the evening when I'm done with it. A day more or less should'nt be that critical for the whole contest ;)

    Lol! good idea but.. I'm too busy workign on a) my own build design and b) a design that may make it into low-scale production. I may fire through a 'example' entry later on though :D

    -Can anyone guess where this is going? Think 'Boddaker's recent radiator'.

    Also take note I'm using gray to represent black!!! Don't post a pitch-black smudge and expect us to critique it!!!
