    O yeah, you've just reminded me to submit it :) My camera only does 3648×2736 pixels, all I could do is crop one of the pics from the high res zoom link pics from the post.

    Took the liberty of cropping one of your pics and running it through Noise Ninja: [ Sauce ] :D

    A few of them are slightly too high-noise to use as wallpaper though, which is a shame :( Lowering the ISO as much as physically possible (you can use longer exposure to compensate) should minimise noise :)

    Thank you for supporting me on this. Only a few modders make me type because I cannot speak. Kier has reached your level.

    God, to be young and healthy again.

    You could simply pop the front facia off the drive itself and take a piece of Alu and JB weld it on to the drive slot or use some 3M tape and you'd be singing. I used 3M tape on my 800D and you honestly cannot tell the difference between a normal bay and the optical bay.
    For yourself, just to maintain an overall consistent look of "HFSAWESOME" I would say to change out the bay facia. :thumb:

    Almost 2 years in the making and you've outdone yourself. As others have said, MDPC or bust!

    O yeah nice :D

    Ah, thanks for the tip :), I'm still learning things about photography, I'm also not that great at picking the location, angle and exposure either when compared to the awesomeness of the photos on the ZOE project log. That noise ninja looks cool too.

    Yeah lol :)

    lol, yeah I'll have to see what I can come up with :), yep its been submitted.

    The mistakes and lessons learnt are all part of the fun I reckon :)

    Thanks everyone, glad you like it :D

    This is one of my favorite builds ever.
    I've been enjoying this from the start and I've been constantly amazed by how you manage to make it all look soo factory made. And what a great way to end your project with a flashback of all the work that has been done. Actually I think that was really good you did because It looks so factory made that some quickviewers would probaby think it was and not give it the respect it deserves.

    Congratulation on a fantastic build and Im really looking forward to the next one.

    Final pics are outstanding and sum up a significant amount of work on your part.
    As the McDonald's jingle goes, "I'm Lovin it."
    Very creative and great execution. :thumb:
