    Truly outstanding man, truly. Although you've just finished, I'm already eagerly looking forward to the next project. I can't wait to see what you will do. :D

    Absolutely fantastic, this build has been a real inspiration to everyone here on the forums. Your attention to detail and skill is out of this world. This is my favorite build you have done to date! I just wonder what your next project will be like :)

    Just took another look through the pictures a day on. I can't believe how clean this build is, there isn't a wire to be seen anywhere, that's impressive!

    I think I prefer it without the plexi, but only just. Either way it's a trully epic build, however understated at the same time. I want!

    I must have missed the pictures with it switched on some how, the word awesome just doesn't cut it when it comes to life & I'm stuck trying to pick the right word, ok it's simply beyond perfect & hope some day I get some great original design ideas popping into my head like this, I mean the way you mounted the mobo would not have popped into my head at all at my current mod ideas level yet it works so perfect, the diy fans are incredible, love the way you hidden all the wires & it all fits together incredibly perfect, so it looks like you have a great ballance of good air cooling & phenomenal looks too, all of it diy too except the disc feet, you are the dude :).

    One thing that puzzles me though, the first thing you made was the laptop hdd mount for filling an empty expansion slot, what happened to it, it was a fantastic idea & done so very well but I only see the gpu & a tv card installed so what's going on for storage?

    Submitted page 40 to MDPC as soon as I'd seen those pics. Absolutely stunning mate.


    Do you have any pics of the wiring work being done?

    Not my cup of tea...but I admire your attention to detail. That, and your ridiculous patience with sanding and polishing. Cygnus X1 still takes the cake for me.

    un F**king believable..
    That, my good sir, is ART!!!

    And nice setup on the photostage.
    A little word of advice before tossing money at the odd lens vendor.
    Get a Pol-Filter.
    Takes the unwanted reflections in e.g. plexi and soften the light in the mirrored alu's
    And works wonders on the natureshots of skylines and water/lake/puddle shots.

    Thanks again Waynio. :thumb:

    Thanks. :thumb: Yep, the cover was going to follow the curve of the fans towards the rear.
    Just couldn't figure out how to do it. :hehe:

    Haha, thanks a lot mate. :thumb:

    Thank you Fab. :)

    Thank you jrs. :) Like with the previous case, I'll use this for a couple of months and then
    wrap it up and put it away.

    Hahahaha. Er.....Thanks. :lol:

    Thank you very much bd. :thumb:

    Haha, thanks. :)

    Thanks Kovoet, I'm a big fan of Bills. :)

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks mate. :)

    Thanks Ziip. :thumb:

    Thanks mate. :thumb: There's an explanation back in the log. Somewhere. :hehe:

    Thank you skullen. :thumb:

    Haha, thank you Cheaps. :thumb:

    Thank you. :)

    Thank you. :)

    Thanks. :)

    Thank you. :)

    Haha, well enjoy them. :)

    Haha, very cool sn. :hehe:

    Thank you Gtek. :thumb:

    Thank you logan. :) Well they don't look like the renders I've seen in the modding section.
    But I'm extremely pleased with the results, to say the least. It's amazing what can be done
    with some cheap (although good) lighting, and a simple idea (the mirror). Months ago when
    I was first fitting the supports to the frame, I thought 'mirror', and that thought stayed with
    me and worked a treat.

    Thank you. :)

    Thank you very much Bod. :thumb:

    Thank you Seba. :thumb:

    Thank you. :)

    Thank you voigts. :thumb:

    Thanks. Sorry, I'm all done. :)

    Thanks mate. :thumb:

    Thanks a lot Skorch. :thumb:

    Thank you Craig. :thumb:

    Thanks again dullonien. :)

    Still thinking. ;)

    Thanks again mate. The hard drive caddy was discarded a while ago (it's back somewhere
    in the log, just don't know where. :hehe:) A 120GB SSD and a 320GB drive are crammed
    into the compartment in front of the PSU. This is also in log. Somewhere. :hehe:

    Thanks, there are a couple of pics in the log, but believe me, you don't want to see inside
    that compartment in front of the PSU. :hehe:

    Thanks Achron. :thumb:

    Still thinking....................

    Thank you. :) And thanks for the advice. :thumb:

    Keyboard? Mine went up the wall and hit the ceiling!
    It's not only off the hook, it's blasted off into space, leaving said hook for dust.

    This has got to be one of, it not THE sexiest build I've ever seen. The craftsmanship and level of detail is truly top-notch. I think the best part is that it's all raw, with no paint to cover up the complete lack of imperfections!

    Amazing rig man. :clap:

    There are 5 star projects and then there is this...they dont make enough stars to give this the rating it deserves, this is my best shot:

    It's the kind of computer I imagine Jor El using!

    And thank you all who have followed this project and commented (or not), no point putting it up if no-one watches.

    Thanks again.
