    Just do the standard I/O Plate cut-out, then if you want to customize it a bit, just make your own I/O plate out of the same Aluminium/Steel that you've been using.

    1. It'll allow you to use any motherboard.
    2. It'll still match the case. ;)

    This monster is really starting to come together now. The rear is all done.
    Left to do list:

    - External drive cages
    - Lighting (LEDs +red uv paint, and two UV cathodes)
    - 3x orange 120mm in the top
    - Red sleeving, and various cable management stuff
    - Eject button for the Optical drive
    - Re-sanding of all aluminium panels :)hehe: now this'll be fun...)

    Hmm, I think that's all :thumb:

    So, now some images.

    I've taken Duste's advice, and cut open a large hole for the I/O plate in the back. I've also testfitted the hardware to see everything matches up, and it does :) The I/O plate is'nt there since this is only a mock-up setup. I have'nt taken any images of the cutting itself, since you should know the routine by now :D

    It IS really coming together now :)

    Next stop is the external drive cages. We'll see when the package from AC Ryan arrives to my doorstep :)

    EDIT: This has nothing with the case itself to to.. A picture of a fangrill I cut using the CNC (and of course I've designed it aswell). This is after 1 coat of black paint.

    Zomg my advice was used. :D Lol.

    That fan grill looks pretty sweet, but it'd block a lot of airflow with those three thick 'tribal'-like bits, yeah?

    really nice work, I plan on making my own fan grills as but I wish I had access to a CnC machine but I dont so I will be using a automated plasma cutter instead.

    Just out of curiosity, that bit in the middle of the top, does it (/could it) function as a handle?

    Uhmm... Well, yeah, I guess it could. At least now without any components inside, but the risk of breaking the acrylic is rather high I suppose (and that black acrylic is pricey, I tell ya :naughty: $250 per m2 urghh)
