    it's time to post.

    Lately time has not been on my side. Too many important stuffs and work that I need to do first. So building this project is quite a problem for me.
    I started conceptualizing the design since day one of the contest. Until today, only few things have been finalized with regards the design and execution. But I promised myself that I will finish this project before the deadline. I don't want to waste anyone's time, so I'll start posting some photos. Enjoy.

    I humbly present to you.

    Project ADVANCE

    update: concept design

    Designing the case was a big challenge for me. So taking more time thinking and designing is more important to me.

    the goal = Sporty but Elegant/Classy

    I love what you did with your gpu

    I was thinkin about it cause that red is god awful but you showed me how!

    I wonder if you loose your warranty through that :] xfx lets you use after market coolers so I dont think they would mind if you visually mod the look of stock heatsink right? :]

    i have to say that i would personally prefer the front panel design shown in the first 3 renders, but in the colors of the last one (the nike edition)
    very sleek design there mate!
    btw what kind of software did you use for the renders?
