    I'm guessing the manufacturer updated the front bezel of the Alienware case, but not the frame, and that's where the led's are located. So to make it work, they just added those curved rods. Pretty funny! :hehe:

    I have to say the mesh is a very simple but very effective addition to the original design. Oh...can't forget the colour change also lol.

    Damn the stock vents look so crap after looking at the new style. Nice work man. What goes on the little round thing on the side?

    i think its an aleinware logo or txt..


    This mod is going to be by far the best you have ever done. Would be very fitting with 'Race driver Grid'

    That looks really nice and stealthy, a lot better than the stock case. How are the alienware cases anyways? Outside, they just look like hunks of plastic, but how the internals?

    In my experience theyre ok but not great... nothing like the solid high qual construction of antec or lian-li cases... Ive never built a PC in one but ive serviced or repaired alienware hardware before... any ive worked on have been based around chieftech chassis

    Btw Bill im loving this mod and watching it closely, more great work from yourself as per usual... look forward to seeing the finished product :)
