    Any reason why the last page has a next button that takes you to a blank page?

    Could you not change it to a home button?

    Oh and cant miss another opportunity to say

    Wha...wha...what!? :eeek: What did you and and 'Tiny' do to my article? Hmm? Sucked the words up when you looked at 'em?

    j/k :D

    It's not really some cunning Bit-Tech competition/IQ test ;) . The article was originally 10 pages and got crunched to nine. The tenth page being left was my stupid fault :duh: - an oversight I shall remedy when one of the other staff get online (G-gnome = html numpty). Anyway, props to you for reading to the end! You both deserve a *hug*

    *hug*

    It would be cool to have a transparent mobo to go with it. :idea:

    We used to call that Rolls-Royce engineering - ultimate quality & attention to detail.

    Bet your kitchen units have all the doors on straight. ;)

    Very nice work going on here! I come from an engineering back ground and I feel right at home with this one.

    I don't usually like clear cases myself, but if it has to be done then this is the way to go. Just seeing the standard ATX bits and bobs "naked" as it were, is a bit pointless to my mind. Going with a hi-tech theme like this though is a fresh new approach and one I like a lot.

    Bet you spent some serious money here though :worried:

    Keep up the great work.

    Any chance you could point us in the direction of the suppliers you used to get some of the more unique components used in this mod -- the hex bolts, nifty LED mounts, rubber surrounds, etc? Also, the neon perspex.. I know this is a very n00bish question, but I'm new to the casemod scene and have yet to establish any knowledge of where to get most of the components. I already have a pretty well stocked wood/metalshop at my disposal, but.. raw materials for this sort of work, I'm sketchy on. I've looked through the suppliers links over in the casemod forum, but there's a lot of info there and I wouldn't mind hearing the preferences of someone who's so obviously got the casemod thing figured out.

    BTW, keep up the good work. I can't wait to see what you make of the mobo/pci cards/etc in Part III.

    [edit]Yes, I'm located on the other side of the pond. I'm not familiar with ordering overseas, but I presume it can be done, or I can find equivilants around here..[/edit]

    I have been doing a little research for suppliers of acrylic and associated materials. So far I have come up with two suppliers on "this side of the big pond" I don't know the quality of thier materials, though "Delvies Plastics" was mentioned in one of the articles here at bit tech. I can not remember which one it was. Here are the links to the suppliers I have found to be reasonble in pricing....

    http://www.delviesplastics.com/

    http://www.usplastic.com/

    Like I said, I am not familiar with thier materials and such, but it is a starting point for those of us in the States. Hope this helps.....

    -- Okay.. Found the article.. It was the VesperDeco HTPC project. Which, BTW, is a cool case.. --

    The third Article isn't out but the project is well advanced and can be viewed in the project logs forums here (use the thumbnails at the top of the first page to navigate to the various updates).
