    Thise drive bays are kickass!

    Maybe you oculd polish some metal and put it behind the plexi, make the front shiney!

    Very nice job. I love the window on the side. Sort of like "I'll give you a glimpse of my l33tness" :D What happened to doing the inkjet transparencies though? Still going to happen, or was that left on the drawing board?


    Wish I could get along with my project as well as you did. No money though....But I'll take donations :)

    I made the changeover to ATX. You can read about the details in past updates of this log

    I used double sided carpet tape. It seems to hold quite well.

    I decided against the transparencies. I was really gung ho to use them, but the main reason I chose not to was because the window was longer than a standard sheet of transparency. So there'd be an unsightly seam where the two pieces join up.

    To everyone else: Thanks for your kind words, <3 <3

    :clap: Very nice case.....:rock:

    Been thinking about doing it myself, but as usual i never get it done.:sigh:

    One thing i would change was all the screws....
    I would only use them on the drive bays...

    wow, done a great job of that. definitely much better than it looked on the plan, in my opinion.

    the industrial look of the bolted drive bays and the fan controller work really well.

    do atx motherboards fit into at towers or did u have to convert it? im guessing the later. sorry, if this question has already been convered.
