    That is quite a nice idea with some acrylic pieces. I have to think about that.

    Thanks for the input!

    Just saw this thread a few minutes ago and I couldn't stop reading it until I got to the end!

    Absolutely amazing work. Your attention to detail and forward thinking are superhuman! Looking forward to the finished product :)

    Mod on! :dremel::rock:

    Well hot damn that's a well built case. :D

    Maybe it's just me, but I hate the idea of adding more plexi to the build. One window that's done in an understated fashion? Great. A monolithic slab of a front panel with a logo on it? Yeah, I can work with that. Overdoing the plexiglass? Ehh. Makes it look less chic and more "gamer".

    I'm in awe of the metal shop you've had access to. I can but dream.

    It looks like it's going to be brilliant with all the hardware inside it. Sub'd.

    I have been thinking about inlays for a while now. But I really don't think it will improve the looks. And I really like how it is right now.

    Anyway, here are some more pictures of components. Added some text to describe what everything does. Since it isn't some basic stuff like PSU, everybody knows what that is.

    Long time no see! Im back to do some more work! TNT said that I would receive a package containing the last hardware today. Unfortunately it got delayed, so one or two more days...

    That package contains a Asus Maximus VI Extreme, Intel 4770K, 2x Asus GTX 780s, 2x Intel 520SSD 240GB and Asus Xonar Phoebus sound card. So quite a lot of stuff.

    Anyway, here are some more pictures of the EK stuff!

    Think you accidentally forgot to translate a few lines there, buddy. Nice hardware nonetheless! :)

    So which version of that beautiful card will you be running? Titan or 780? Sorry if I accidentally missed the memo, I've had some Internet problems of late :sigh:

    Will be running dual 780!

    ____

    Hope I have not bored you all with individual pictures of components, but I have not had that much else to do while I have been waiting for the last pieces to arrive! But now work will start up for real again!

    You have been my test subjects for photography! Still learning new things every day! I am still very new to all this but I am learning by doing! I have really learned much by doing this so in the end it have been worth it :)

    Anyway, here is the last pictures of components alone! Next up will be me installing, modding and sleeving stuff!

    Here is ALL the components and products that will go in to the chassis now! It really is a lot when you lay it all out in their packages!

    Absolutely love the case. you could have it sit there with no components in and it would still look better than most cases you can buy. But it's sure gonna look sweet with that lot in there!
