    Oh hell yeah... Time to fire up the good'Ol Sketchup and get to work.

    EDIT
    Read the article and there is no mention of geographical limitations, so I guess US entrants are OK?

    In the works....

    ...the most versatile ready-to-go case ever thought of.

    :D:naughty::idea:

    There's no reason to limit the options for possible customers, right :lol:

    Oh...

    ...and it's going to be as small as possible ofc :hehe:

    I've just added a FAQ to the first post - hopefully this will answer most initial questions!

    I have been waiting for Mick64's case design to materialize for over a year now and even spammed his forum post on XS relentlessly, even to a point of aggravating other members trying to get updates on any progress. Finally in August I gave up all hope that this case would ever become a reality, UNTIL NOW! I have been an overclocker since the days of the K6 and Voodoo 3, when hard soldering and pencil tracing on PCB's was the norm and have been an avid reader of bit-tech and Custom PC since it's availability here in the US, but have not joined the forums as I am not much of a chatter. However in the case of this I felt It necessary to speak up and say how important I feel this contest is to the community that case companies have overlooked for years. The HARDCORE OVERCLOCKER / MODDER that wants a case that will truly fill the void we have had since day one.

    I look forward to following this closely as it progresses.

    Cheers

    How about this? Very rough draft. It's 2' tall (Approx) by 1' wide (Approximately, at its widest point), has 6x3.5" internal hard-drive points (Possibly upgradable to 9, depending on occlusion), 2x3.5" external bays, and 9(!!) 5.25" bays, along with twin 4x120mm rads.
