    There are a LOT of lurkers and unregistered readers.
    That's a very cool design. I think your old PSU might have had too little exhaust, but that duct is too awesome to get rid of.:D
    Red/white/black scheme is great too. All you need now is some black tape over the labels. -Especially since the logos are all upside down.

    Thanks! I didn't bother with the Corsair logos since the kinda fit the color theme and the other side is actually the right side up. LOL

    Thanks!

    !!

    I'm shocked and ecstatic that I'm in MOTM!! Sadly this is about 90% completely and I'm still waiting on some parts.

    Thanks for the nomination again!

    Time for another update!

    As I mentioned previously, the only part that's left to really design was to fix the power inlet which looks like this.

    Fired up my CAD software and came up with this. Usually my designs take a couple of revisions because I model them off specs online rather than taking actual measurements. In this case, I also wasn't sure if the cover would extend enough to hide the wiring mess.

    This the result.

    Also, starting up my printer which hasn't seen action for more than 3 months. And viola!

    Sure turned out better than I expected. And a perfect fit too!

    I guess some things does turn out right after going wrong so many times. :hehe:

    Cheers!

    Not sure how I missed this one, but looks great! Love how you integrated all 'brackets' into one big one holding the HDDs, PSU and more!
