    Everyone is asking me how I'm going for a VGA big in this case because it is tiny?
    Yes it is little more like "tony chopper tnoy" he has a grandiose interior!
    Here some pictures of how much space I have for internal placement of large VGAs
    Two 140mm fans + 120mm one to simulate the placement of a second radiator + fan on top
    [​IMG]

    as well as plenty of 27 cm from the VGA GTX280 can put greater (this will not be used gtx280)

    radiator in the front? of course!

    Cool project...but I really have a hard time with such a large mini-ITX case.
    I don't really get it :confused: There are smaller cases than this which can fit full ATX, so a case like this seems pretty wierd to me.

    Anyhow, looking forward to seeing what you can do with it ;)

    I like the case and hardware:p

    But cant you edit your pictures so the HUGE red part with the deer and text gets away? It looks great for the first picture, but just makes the eyes bleed when its on the 27 others.
    A subtle watermark always looks best on pictures, or else it takes away the focus:)

    (PS, hurry up and get some modding going, or this belongs in planning:p)

    Project logs need to contain images of work in progress. Moved to Modding for now...

    Please let me know when you have some work on show and we'll move it back.
