Hi all, This is a fairly quick project log, born out of my need to have a case that's worthy of holding my new system. I did some brainstorming last night, and came up with a few ideas, many of which are specific to the way I use my system. I don't have any fancy sketchups, as I don't HAVE sketchup on this pos old laptop. This is a partial list of what I have planned. -Tinted windows on both sized w/ss harware -Tinted top window? not sure on this, it may be one window too many, will play it by ear. -White led interior, spotlighting a few parts -Touch sensitive switch for led's -Backlit Motherboard -USB and audio ports stealthed under left edge of case bottom -White/Amber HDD/Power Led indicator -Matte black frame with polished steel highlights -this will be the absolute last thing done, as I will be using this as my main system throughout the mod. Also, painting and then deciding to hack another hole sucks. I have a few other cool ideas, but I'm not commited to them yet. Here's my case: Note the stupid etching in the side window. This is going away first thing. Also, note the blank right side panel: I've got to do something about that. This took a surprising amount of work, as I couldn't simply mirror the main panel due to it being offset for the handles. The next step was cutting and drilling the new windows: I actually needed 3 panels, but I cracked one and will have to wait to implement that part of my plan. The final step for the acrylic was some tinting: This is actually a prototype I made previously, so don't mind the chipped to heck edges. Shiny, eh? Tomorrow, I will mount the windows. For some reason, Thermaltake thinks green and purple are an awesome color combination...not!!! A quick coat of black paint took care of it though. Finally, here's a prototype of something I have planned for the front door. I can't see the power and hdd led's from where I sit, sooo..... Until next time.
