    Once again... respect. Not my style, but credit where it's due my friend... no matter what style, that's one serious case. I wish my Dad would make me a case like that. Can you adopt me please? I'm housebroken and everything... :hehe:

    I really love that front (minus the flamy things...) But hey the whole things is done really great. I mean there are so many things you could have screwed up on but you nailed everyting even the flamy things.

    GOOD JOB MAN!

    hehehe there's a funny language barrier misunderstanding

    for reference: screwed up = messed up, destroyed, botched, ****ed up, etc.

    and nailed = did perfectly, got right, etc.

    i don't know the etemology (word origins) for 'screwed up', but i believe 'nailed' is from the phrase 'hit the nail on the head', meaning to have done something with great precision or accuracy.

    so basically he was saying that there were many things that could have gone wrong in the modding of this case, but you have made it a great work of art with little apparent effort (or something along those lines) [and I agree with this, it's a great mod, i found the link off the screensavers website and read through your logs and it looks like you and your kid had a lot of fun]

    HTH (Hope That Helps)

    That is a SWEET case, and it is nice to see someone departing from the usual green / black color scheme.

    I like the method of hiding the wires beneath the sanded plexi. Any plans to light it up on the bottom?

    Those bolts that hold the fans on are awesome!

    I saw this case at casemodgod, and I'll comment here. It's wonderful! The whole theme is well put together, and the flames are very well done. The plexi thing at the bottom hiding the wires is brilliant, and I may have to steal that idea for my case, with a rheobus my 8 case fans get kinda bulky on the wiring ;)

    thanks for sharing this great piece of work!

    oh man.. this is really a great case

    it looks like a monster :jawdrop:

    those colors are great


    so... you decided to use both plexi and alu, that was great :idea:

    it looks really good
