    This project has been in works for a while now, x06jsp (josh) is building the case (LianLi 343) for me, the frame is being powdercoated black and panels anodized green, 2 windows and 2rad grills in the roof. I should have the case finished with me hopefully by the end of this week. Then i'll be installing the watercooling. Pics so far;

    This project is just a simple watercooling and windows install and powdercoating the frame black and anodising the panels green there isnt anything that needs designing really.

    And lol i will get it done dont worry. this project doesnt really require any of my actuall work anymore......

    Nice colors :thumb:

    I'm curious to know how much it cost you to anodize the whole case ?

    i think it would cost about ~£100 best to have alot of bits and bobs to get done in one go.

    I never like cube cases and don't like green for a case but this looks really nice. So clean and simple, looks real good.

    I think it's this same project, which looks like it's been edited to be removed, lol. Sneaky!

    The style powder is referred to as "hammertone". One problem with that is getting things to fit flush compared to when it was just plain and/or anodized because of the texture/thickness added to the piece.

    Nice looking rig!

    One downside to these cases in my opinion (if you could consider it a downside) is the top 'rad panel' on there. I wish they would've left it plain, so if the modder/builder wants to add a rad or three on there, he could. And it would look clean as opposed to having a panel getting covered over with rad grills. Hell, it'd be cool if Lian Li even sold a "solid top" panel for these cases just for that reason. But eh, just nit-picking. This build does look clean despite that issue regardless.

    I no what you mean, that removable plate ontop is pretty much useless, lianli should have made a solid-top option.
    ps case arriving tomoz morning, i'm gona burst if I have to wait any longer :worried:
    What you guys think of the green and purple water loops? right choice or not?

    Yeah, green in there would be fine, but purple may be a bit odd. But hey, it's up to you!
