    I like the case... but the front bezel however...

    Anyways this is just my opinion but what the hell? The big indent just doesnt look right. Throughout this whole log i was waiting for something to fill in that huge indent. But it doesnt look like you are. You could even put some nice modders mesh running with the lines of the case. But as for that big front indent I'm sorry if this hurts your ego but I think it looks like total crap. It breaks the shape of the case completely. Now I know you probably didnt want to hear it but I would make a guess as I am not the only one thinking this. If you planned on doing something with it Im sorry I should have read alittle closer.

    I do think this project has the potental to look really really good like I said you could do something with modders mesh or even like a speaker grill I think would just finish it off really nicely.

    This post is not a flame so dont take it that way. Its simply some very harsh but I hope constructive critisism.

    As tp the question about the hole... what hole, the bottom or the top. The top has a VGA 640 x 480 screen, the bottom is the fans...

    Here are some more pics that did not make it to the contest...

    You've got my vote, man, and to think that I used the same case as you. The exterior of mine is just plain pathetic (esp. the paint job). I am, however, pleased with how the inside turned out

    //had to sneak in a mention of my case

    These pics lead to that final saying... I am done! :clap: :clap: :clap: or at least I think. I still need the pci video card to power the screen and a few small issues (i.e. the MB temp sensors are going bad (75 degrees C for the processor is not right :waah: and 55 degrees for the system temp...

    It has been fun doing this project, I learned so much about filler and metal work and dremeling and other things. I am happy with the way that it came out but like many projects I can never say that it is done. I want to work on the upper VFD some more, raising it and making a cover so only the screen is seen. Also the CDROM is going to get the lighting slot mod amoung other things. I will update this thread when more work is done.

    I hope you all enjoyed this project and look forward to many more in the future... If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here and I will be happy to hear them.

    Until the Next Project... Keep Modding :dremel:


    On a side Note :: An article would be nice :hehe: :hehe: :hehe:

    This project will be up on my website soon with all the pics avalable in full size and a bit more comentary on what I did with the project...

    Stunning work sir. I'm putting a top loading drive in my case at the moment... yours looks so stunning that you've spurred me into getting on with it.

    VERY nice case, congratulations in advance for winning the competition :D

    are you able to edit your entry to have the lcd in there? I would hope so as that would lock in your 1st place. Seems people go nuts when you have a lcd in your computer. Anyways good to see everything is working.
