    I'm loving all the angled plates. The triangle cuts are a good idea too. They make the seams interesting.
    Messy workshop pictures are best. :thumb:

    Don't worry I'll update the Log :thumb:

    As for the specs nothing fancy, for now I'll move what i have:

    MB: MSI 350M Gaming Plus
    CPU: R3 1300x OC @ 3925 MHz
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport 8Gb @2666
    GPU: MSI R7 360X OC @1250 MHz Core and 2000 Mhz VRam
    SSD: Samsung 860 EVO 250 Gb
    HDD: WD Blue 1Tb
    PSU: Energon EPS 650 W CM

    I Had to build it during the virtual currency miners spike, so the prices for some parts skyrocketed in that period :rollingeyes:.
    I know these are not super cool dandy PC specs, but this faithful little horse lets me play at 1080p with about 40 fps :grin:.
    If all goes well this summer I'll buy a RX 5700 XT as option A, or option B I could settle for a more affordable RX 590 and add a 1Tb ssd + another 8Gb Ram stick instead.

    For now my main goal is to finish the case, because in April I'll start working again in the Hotel so i won't have so much spare time till Autumn.

    I'm happy you like the triangles it was risky but I like 'em too, no more cardboard backgrounds then :grin:

    Why did you bring a bot here?:eyebrow: Should have changed the registration date. Would suffer one day, get an exclusive February 29.:lol:

    @censored_Prometheus_ - I noticed that too. Three new members registered within 2 days and all have about 50 posts. I think they are just young, know each other, and are hitting a maximum post allotment for new members.
    This used to be more common when marketplace/voting limits were 50 posts.

    Yeah, you 're right, I didn 't notice the third one. Excuse for an off topic. But that 's either a member of 2 bots or all 3 bots at all.
    There are proofs: https://forums.bit-tech.net/index.php? threads/phantom-plane.372791/page-2
    He decided that all bots should use different styles of writing... But in this post he became confused and used all styles from one user.

    Sorry, wrong link, this correct:https://forums.bit-tech.net/index.php?threads/project-tweaked-meshify-s2.371939/page-3
    It does not happen that a person writes such a style: "yeah the cleanliness of it really adds something to it, keep us updated;)" - using punctuation marks, but without using capital letters, then so:"Yeah it clearly isn 't an easy task, good luke!" - quite correctly, and so: "аbsolutely gorgeous " is completely wrong. It 's the same character in essence and at the same time completely different. He 's confused in his bots.

    @MLyons - You're just waiting for the suspicious voting activity then. :thumb:
    Sorry we derailed your project, Jean.

    Edit: :lol: You locked them at 47 posts and suddenly they stop.

    Don't worry, I don't have any problem with it.
    At the moment I'm hammering, filing and brushing.

    Tomorrow I'll post an update, I wanted to post it today but the Spine turned out to be a nightmare.
    It's mostly my fault, in the first bending phase I used too much of my manly power with the hammer blows and now i have to recover the damage.
    Hopefully I should be able to finish it tomorrow, so I can show the Spine completed.

    Hi all, the storage Spine is almost complete.
    Now it can sustain itself on one of its main screw, I'll make the holes for a couple more support screws but I have to be sure everything is square.
    Tomorrow I'm going finish the Spine, I just need to correct a couple of bends of the second SSD small cable covers.
    It was a PITA to craft :rollingeyes:, but at least it's really close to the original idea :grin:.

    It should not take too much time, so I should be able to start with the PSU support frame and the cable routing frames.

    Posting an update

    this is the PSU frame I had some concepts, but what I crafted in the end is clean and help with the "floaty" effect i want to give to the hardware inside the case.
    I polished it, I made this choice with my brother advice.
    This way it give the effect a module connected to the main frame, I wanted this and it works.

    [​IMG]

    Two pics of the storage side with the external panels clipped.
    I have to think a bit about how to connect it to the main frame.
    I have two options super clean with almost no screw visible, or I'll have a lot of screws I'll look into it tomorrow.

    Thanks for the comments, I'll update as soon as I have more progresses.

    :duh: Jawdropping metalwork :jawdrop:, I noticed that these last years, the new wave of Italian modders is overwhelming the modding scene with amazing mods, likewise impressive skills and an incredible creativity, and that's really great... :dremel::clap::rock:

    looking fantastic. :D
    It looks like the outer corner covers could use a small spacer to give it a little more 'float'.
