    Here's your shot, Cheaps. Not perfect, as the camera picked weird highlights. But it's there. Hope that will suffice! :thumb:

    Thanks, bro!

    Nah, I ain't goin' anywhere; I'm more valuable as the designer and printer as opposed to sales people. ....Famous last words. :hehe:

    Wow!! That window looks titties!! 8D¨ Apart from the cool design, I also like the way those screws turn into discreet details (didn't even notice em at first), but then I though "hey, look how evenly spaced they are.. not too many either, just the right amount and size.. they go great with the case as well!! Man, this guy got style!"
    You can tell that a lot of though and design went into this case! I applaud you!! :clap:

    Hey E.E.L. great job on this case! I had just enough free time here at work to check out the last couple pages of your worklog (trying to catch up on others' projects). Lucky for me that included all the beauty shots! :D I definitely need to read through the entire log next break I get, now that I saw the finished piece! Once again, awesome work. Definitely unique! :thumb:

    Final Update! 56K Warning :(

    And now we come to a close.

    I want to thank each and every one of you that obsessed over this build constantly, checked in on occasion, or just went "meh" and clicked to the next log. I appreciate it all the same. I want to thank any and all who actually spent the 5 secs to post something too. And I want to thank any and all who (in hindsight) wasted a vote on this build early on during the MoTM competition for February.

    It feels good being a part of such a large community of talent and creativity.

    And a hearty thanks goes to Bit-Tech staff for working behind the scenes to make things go as smoothly as possible on this forum. Not to mention banning all the little miscreants who don't possess enough sense that you can't post words like "sh*t" and "f$%k".

    Round of applause for all of you, Bit-Tech. :clap: :clap: :clap: Ya'll deserve it.

    I have spent some time wiping the old Raptor I have in this system and did a nice fresh install of XP Pro up to SP3. I also played a bit with OCing the vidcards, but not much. I'll probably push the CPU back to where I was at before in it's previous existence. But anyways, after some wire-management and some other tuck n' nips, I can finally feel okay with calling the mod and build finished*. And yes, the asterisk is because no mod is ever finished. ;)

    Now, bare with me with these pics. I am not a photographer at all, and I apologize if they aren't the best. I tried. I really did. I don't have an SLR camera (why would I? I suck as a photographer!) Sunset is weird, so the colors are weird, not to mention the odd highlights here and there. I apologize again. I actually wanted to get some shots of it in this lot full of rubble and stuff, but there are fences all around it with NO TRESPASSING signs, and the days of a younger EEL hoppin' fences and runnin' from the cops are over....at least for the most part when alcohol isn't involved. But I digress. And I'm rambling. Here we go.

    I may give the pics another go, but I'm not sure. Just not confident in my photo skills.

    WARNING: LARGE FILES! (Clickable to larger pics...)

    I must say you pulled off an amazing job with such a diverse palette of color. If I had a company that needed custom computer cases, I would contact you first.

    Don't sell yourself short on the photo-skills man, they look great :thumb:

    I'm really happy that we got you out of your shell and prodded you along until you posted some actual logs (instead of those damn teaser photos!!! :nono:) because you really put together some nice shots and nicely detailed updates. The bit-tech community applauds you back! Thanks for entertaining our never ending hunger for pics!

    :clap: :rock: :D :dremel:

    Whilst I'm a bit too conserative for your colour choice, this is one of the most beautiful builds I have seen. IMO, on the face of it, it looks simple and clean, but I think it takes a lot more work to make something look like that.

    I'm also a Praetorian lover, I have the black version of this case and it was the best money I've ever spent on a case. Such an amazing build.
