    And now the real stuff. First thing to do is create a base structure from aluminum profiles of various type: flat, squared, L-shaped etc.

    [​IMG]

    And rivet everything together

    [​IMG]

    Doubled it

    Internal mounts for acrylic fan and radiator holders

    Looking good. :D
    Not much room for a HDMI cable. Are you planning to add legs?

    The whole case is going to be lifted so there will be plenty of room for any I/O cable :D

    Here I am with a huuuge update!
    I couldn't find an interesting way to make the feet of the case so I just went all out and made this out of 8mm acrylic, aluminum L-profiles and pine wood:

    And no it's not an Omen X, as a lot of people said. The only thing in common is the cube form hahaha

    Decided to leave central acrylic piece clear so I polished the edges

    [​IMG]

    Swapped the motherboard for an MSI H310I PRO since the previous one was dead

    Stencils on the internal panels

    Can you slip an extra strip of LEDs over the top edge of the motherboard plate? I think that would look sick. :D
    Love it!
