    hey malcs lovely case man! those centruions look tha_bomb!
    i was planning on maybe getting one, but ive heard there are a few off-putters such as the stamped steel at the back which ive heard can be really difficult to work with?
    whats your views? would be nice to hear it from a respectable person as yourself rather than some n00bs advice.
    thanks in advance.

    projetc c2 was done for £100 and thats money that takes a while on its own...
    the lian li project i am going to spilling about £550.. how?
    well its my gcse year... not long till my exams.. means i wont be going out much so will be able to save pritty easily. i get £60 a month and my birthday is in june... i will be able to save about £240 by june and then im getting £300 for me bday probally less... as its a reeeeeeeeeeally long summer between yr11 and college i can get a job and raise some more funds.
    its not going to be easy but im determaind to do it.
    also due to being a net freak i have found all the cheapest places to get stuff.. eg my neons were £20 in maplin and i got em for £2.50.
    combined together i could get some cool shiet

    aaand back on topic.. the steel on the back is a bit thin for my liking but is well rounded no sharp edges and seems to be fine for what it does. The bar that holds in the PCI cards is genius

    Yeah, the CD tray needs to be black.

    Some bubble tubes might look good in those two gaps in the front bezel, although I'm not sure how short you can get those.

    Regardless, it's looking really nice so far.

    i was thinking about having one behind a case badge like on my old budget mod (see my sig) but... i have modded it so that you just touch the bottom right corner of the blanking plate, and it opens. :)


    window up next i am thinking about designs etc..... :D
