    I think hexagons are the new black. Fantastic work, phinix.

    Cheers mate!


    OK, small update before the final one:)

    I made a use of those hex shapes that left after making front panel and decided to make some "pattern shapes" for painting rear radiator mesh cover.
    This is what I came up with:D

    Another thing I wanted to show is finished top panel. As you all remember, this one was made from 10mm thick clear acrylic and some aluminium covers. All of course had to be painted satin black.. hours of painting...

    Of course, bottom panel was been finished as well. Simple, satin black...

    Then I added bottom 4 screws that holds bottom panel to the main bottom aluminium panel in Tower.

    Then 4 beautiful billet feet, courtesy of our friend Bill from MNPCTECH.

    That is it, for now:D

    So.. for the last time.. STAY TUNED!!!:thumb:

    Hi phinix, I'm totally impressed by your work/art. You've got a lot of talent that's for sure!

    For your feet, I don't understand why you choose silver and not black, and
    for my itx mod, I chose these feet too but in the "itx" size! (More pretty for me).

    Here: http://www.mnpctech.com/ITX_MATX_Computer_Case_Feet.html

    Like many others, I'll stay here and await the FINAL!!!

    The work that Phinix has put into it is incredible.

    I think this is possibly one of the best looking builds I've ever seen.

    The attention to detail you've gone to, even down to the top cover is amazing. Genuinely cannot wait to see the end product.

    Yep, cheeky little update before the big one:)
    Thanks guys, I hope you gonna like last update. I guess I haven't showed the Tower with all leds on and everything yet, hoqever it is running on from last weekend:)
    Effect is exactly what I was looking for and was hoping that I'll achieve. It is hard to predict how some light effects will look like if you haven't tried that before, so I wasn't sure how it will look. But its all good, look fantastic with front panel on.
    I have attached bottom panel, top one is waiting for last soldering action tomorrow.
    Very last thing I'm going to do will be mounting water block on graphic card and plugging the whole water cooling to it. A lot of work for a Saturday;)
    I think I will ahve all photos ready by Sunday night...
