    Awesome case mate & I am highly impressed with your diy work especially the pci/io piece I know how difficult it is to get the bending correct on that part :D:jawdrop::thumb:. +rep

    yes sir! pinoy na pinoy ito! and proud to be one!



    Happy new year to all!!! Just got back from a short vacation!

    Well, a new year is here and new idea has came in...:idea: I have decided to make the case shorter and smaller... so, I redid the motherboard tray... also i have thought of a design for the sidepanel and also a new design for the front panel... (thanks cchr, I got some help from him)

    All these ideas are coming in but I have a bit of a problem!!! I have used up the remaining aluminum that i have...:waah: good thing I was able to fit in the new motherboard tray.:dremel: I think, the rest of the build will be on acrylic and some body fillers...

    So here's some photos of it:
