    -Goals-
    I would like to develop my previous design, lots of hot air was blown directly onto other components last time, thats gonna change, all the disks will go in the middle module, while the main comps stay in their own on top and bottom, there will be no more "PSU in the top right corner" type of thing, got OCZ on the team this time, and they will provide some awesome custom powersupplies for this project

    to sum it up :

    * 3 mobo slots (gonna get in a mATX instead of the mITX)
    * seperate disk case
    * seperate comp case
    * watercooled cpu's/gpu's
    * TO HELL WITH PLEXI, god i hate that material...
    * YES to andonized, cnc'ed alu :p
    * fully welded alu frame

    You are that duder who made the 29TB gaming rig right?

    Let me ask you one question: Why? Why would you want 30TB of space in your PC? Unless ofcourse you're going to make a fileserver out of this one?

    Good luck anyway :)

    That brickwork looks a bit messy.

    I refuse to comment on the machine itself due to immense jealousy.

    Aha, that makes sense now :)

    Are you sure you have enough clearance for the air to get out?

    Nope, not really...

    But then again... air easily bends around stuff, so a 360x240x4 cm clearance should be sufficient
