    Okay, so my internet have been down for several days so I have not been able to post updates. Here are a bunch of updates, 3 to be precise!

    I have also taken final pictures of the chassis alone. They should be up later today or tomorrow!

    EDIT: Almost forgot, I got a video from the milling!

    Awesome :D

    Thanks for showing the light box, I like the idea of using a black background instead of the usual white, makes the products stand out more. Intrigued you went for continuous lights as opposed to strobes/flash - do you like the setup? Is it easy to use and adjust?

    I was sceptical when you mentioned the ROG logo and wondered if it would fit with the theme of the build, but I really like it, especially glad you kept the machine markings :)

    Onwards!!

    The bare aluminium against the black finish looks really great.

    I must say I'm a bit jealous of the machinery you have at your disposal. ;)

    The ASUS logo... Elegance at it's finest... How you execute every step of the project so masterfully is beyond me.

    Might just invest in some sort of lighting and proper camera :D

    The milled surface on the bottom looks great as well as the window panels!
    Will you keep the front that way to?

    Fantastic work. Very professional results. You have access to machinery that most of us wish to have.

    Really apreciated your attention to details, that's what makes the difference from a good build to an extraordinary build like yours, hope this one will be at MOTY contest this year ( and mine too, of course hahaha )

    Are you going to paint the logo? Would look good if it goes in with a fine meniscus at the edges.

    Not sure, I might. But i think that the bare aluminium looks really good. I also don't want to remove the milled feel that the small circles gives. I'm not a 100% sure but that is the way it looks now.

    oooh laser cut translucent red acrylic so it gives a slight interference fit, you'll retain the milled look but add a bit more pop to the finished article.

    Oh man! It looks great!
    But I'm not sure if it wouldn't look sweeter with some nice inlays in the logo thou. ;)

    Burnout just spoke the truth. Maybe find a way to overkill it and light it up very faintly, from an edge so as to retain the pattern behind the red acrylic. Maybe even a chromed frame but my mind works in strange ways.

    Think I'll do something like that in my mod, just to see If I can schmooze Asus...

    Either way, I still enjoy the case porn :D
