    SWEET! Why was I not informed of this build?!?!:lol: Lots of nice touches. I like the metal caps and mobo risers. Even the way you twisted the wiring to the mobo power is cool. It's like a grand piano and a robot had a baby.:rock:
    The only bit that bugs me is how reserved you were with the MDF. We were limited by 12" x 24" because of material costs. With MDF, you could have made crazy shapes.:D

    idle
    Cpu 31c
    Mobo 32c
    Gfx 35c

    load
    cpu 42c
    mobo 45c
    gfx 45-50c

    Would actually have done it in acrylic first, but when I found out how expensive it was I came to other thoughts:jawdrop::)

    Wow! I think this could be the best build I have seen on here so far. It all just looks so right and the finish is immaculate. Good job! :)

    I told Bill while designing we could save money by doing it in glued strips and layers. He said, "f*** NO!" :lol:

    I hope to see you build more stuff soon. (You can't just build one computer.:D)
