    the blue panel is a 1/8" alu plate that goes behind the two black front 1/8" plates - in person you can actually see the blue behind the black plates at the flowing cutouts. Its enticing really and more so than I expected when originally hashing out the idea :) the particular powder I chose for the blue is so deep and vibrant I kinda want to do a whole case in the color (Ill save that for another day :))

    thanks for your compliments and too be perfectly honest I am stunned that this is actually all working out, I take a lot of chances on luck in my modding and everything has been :thumb::thumb: so far. :rolleyes:

    yes that is the front door, technically its upside down in the pic, but you've seen the concept renders :) Thankyou for the vote of confidence :D


    Cheers Blackflag, Oreon, and Dont-Fear thankyou :thumb:

    Great stuff sniipe. That door is beautifully executed - very 'custom' look about it but not too 'loud' or anything. Just right.

    man, I love seeing all the little pieces, but I'm getting impatient now, put the damn thing together already!!!!

    It's awesome and the small details is what really sets it apart.

    I'd have to agree there.
    Something to consider?

    Gorgeous.

    I got some ideas, I wanna run by ya some time, for an amazing case. You might wanna throw some stuff in.

    Too bad about XS, you know why I'm no longer there (though I'm not banned) though I'd love a shot at that controller.

    I'm looking forward to bending your ear when I can...

    Lemme see if I have a Windoze rig even...

    I gotta get a machine up on the bench, and I'll look at loading it. Dunno about my headset, though. Lemme see what I can do.

    Nope, not a chance of Vent. This machine has Win-hoes, but I can't get the sound to work for love nor money.

    Working on it. This setup is pissing me off.

    Seems everyone wants to use voice these days. I won't even own a cell phone...

    dude seriously I am not gonna get through the granite till tomorrow afternoon - currently I am drilling on my drill press with a mason's 3/4" bit.... I am moving through the granite @ 1mm/hr so far and the stuff is 12mm thick :(

    also I dont have proper ear protection and I am gonna go deaf before I finish the next ~6hrs of drilling

    yup i knew it would be tough, therefore the rep. :thumb:

    But you should really get some protection, the rig can wait a few hours or a day, go out and get yourself some good ear protection, and then continue the mod.

    Awesomeness is all well and good, but not at the detriment of your health.
    And something else to ponder: if you go deaf, how will you get the best of that gaming power?

    Playing mute games ain't fun dude. seriously.

    I got through the granite! I was having a very hard time at it, so i went to the store and got another 3/4" bit and a 5/8" bit for rotary - I put the new 3/4" in and it worked well for a sec but then started squealing like a stuck pig similar to the other bit was doing and wouldnt go anymore... so I popped the 5/8" bit in the drill and gave it a go... BOOM through the remaining material in 5 seconds flat LOL

    so word to the wise, always get the size bit you want the hole to be and the size below that one and alternate bits to achieve faster drilling through granite. Lessons learned :D

    so now the bottom of the case is completely plumbed and the only thing watercooling wise I have left is installing the reservoir and plumbing that!

    Although I've not had reason to take on granite with a drill, I have used a similar method to drill holes in a poured concrete wall. Congrats on making it through!
