    RadGrillz are kinda gettin' oldskool imho... Window shape looks promising.

    Good luck.

    Lucky then it's so easy to come up with entirely new ideas :clap: Oh wait :worried:

    Stackers have room for some rather special designs, so I'm looking forward on this one!

    Unfortunately, I have to agree. Everyone just slaps on a Radgrill, it's a standard feature on most cases nowadays.

    UPDATE 3

    [​IMG]
    Taped the plexi to the side, so i could draw the cut lines on it.

    [​IMG]
    By using 2 wooden blocks, I fixed the plexi to my workbench. That way I could work on it without the plexi moving around.

    [​IMG]
    A little sneappreview of the plexi i'm using. ^^

    [​IMG]
    The plexi is cut roughly at size. Only the bottom need's some work.

    More updates soon...

    I'd say remove the sticker on the video card. but then again, it might void the warranty.
    I like the window cut out. Original.

    What's the processor you're using? I have the same motherboard, the same graphic card and I've had the same cooler as well :) But unfortunately only X2 4600+, which somewhat bottlenecks the 8800GTS performance...

    Just don't run 3dmark on the setup or it WILL make you cry. Good luck with the project!

    Oh that's not as bad as mine (8500). Still there's no way I'd run tests for a review with this as the previously tested 8800GT got over 10 k points on an Intel-based setup.
