    I have been a fan of Voodoo PCs for a very long time. I was very excited when the blackbird came out it looked very cool but after reading about the weight 80lbs.I just couldnt take it with me on lan parties so I passed it up. Next the firebird it was light compact but lacked the ability for upgrades.I upgrade video cards every 8months.I had a few slow days at work and decided to take it to the next level. I have access to a cnc lazer cutter so their is no limits.

    The frame looks good so far.

    Can you make a shot of the corners and how you did them?

    Nice Framwork. You made a good job. The cnc laser will make it easier to cut the plates in the right shape.

    The corners took some practive I cut 3 small tringles out right before the end and then bent it very easily. Im not sure of the angles since I did not make 90s. Hope this helps.

    Wow that is looking really nice. I am a big fan of voodoo as well! I really like the Envy 133 but it just doesn't have the performance I need for my mobile work. Keep up the good work.
