    220V, eheim 1048
    for 12V i would use some DCC3.25, thats the best you can find performance and dimension wise

    I have a concern,

    This spot. You are going to have all the weight of almost the entire case on these four bolts, which are towards the middle of that bar, instead of on the ends where it's stronger.

    This is awesome work man. Props for anyone who makes a case bigger than mine! :rock:

    If you look closely, u will see a hole on the middle bar aswell :p

    Just ran out of bolts, lol (BTW, its 10mm stainless steel bolts) u could hang a car from each one of em ^^

    lol ok, you the man. I have personally designed something for aesthetics, only later to find out it the functionality (or support) was lacking. Just was hoping this wasn't one of those cases. err, instances lol

    Cable management, day 2

    Hi guys!

    New update today ! running really low on materials now, all from alu to steel, and the plexi have yet to arrive.... so somewhat in a standstill now, ah well.... found a few parts to work on anyways ^^

    Whats been done:

    * PSU mounts done
    * Middle mobo plate mounted
    * Front and backplate of mid module finally popped in place
    * Started working on consealing the middle PC aswell as all the cables that comes with em
    * 2x 240 and 2x 360 radiators arrived
    * ordered up 12x 120mm fractal design 16db fans
    * ordered up 3x laing pumps
    * ordered up hosing and "coolsleeves"


    The mobo plate


    Well... as you prolly know by now, the PC thats gonna manage most of the disks will be placed in the middle module, up front on the middle module to be exact ^^

    Had to file down the back of the spacers to make sure the mobo plate was in touch with the front plate

    Drilled a bunch of holes, and popped stuff into place^..

    What's happening with the wind tunnel idea that was in the renders?
    I liked the idea a lot and wanted to see how you were going to implement it...

    But otherwise, some awesome HDD pr0n coming our way.

    Please excuse me now, I have to pick my jaw off the floor...
