    Mmmmm, nice :D

    Looks pretty clean, though I'm not a fan of the beige optical drives or fan grills (don't ask, I have a weird hatred of them for some reason).

    It's a shame that our fingers would bleed so much without fan grills because intake fans look great without grills on IMHO.

    Anyways, nice case, where've I seen it before? A certain case gallery that is cool that I won't mention the name of?

    :confused: :confused:

    It's a cube in acrilic, perhaps there is some of them in the NET, nothing is impossible.
    But this is a project of mine and made by me...not a copy to anything or someone...I know that box you are talking about and it's a lot different, I think the only thing that is the same It's the shape of the box... a cube in acrilic.:D :D

    I can't remember where I saw it, but thinking more carefully it might have had 80mm fans at the top and black drives :confused: I'll look around for it and see if I can find the link.

    because it will be hard for me to have a box like my on on the net...the people here in my forum may say that I did copie my box from another one....
    and it's not true...I didnt never saw anything like it before.... :waah:

    nice...i like the bloo glow!!! Fans all over!

    I'm sure i know the answer, but why two PSUs?

    Is the top of the case attached?

    I have also seen the acrylic cube case called the IceCube. Regardless i think this one looks good.

    I had a similar idea...Mine was even going to be IceCube...(notice my username) but i guess i'll have to use IceT. My first name starts with a T. Now you got me thinking...case shaped like a giant T....hmmm

    Anywho. Like the case. Get some different fan grills and you will be kicking!!

    Don't worry, you can't expect every mod or case to be original; there's hardly any that couldn't be "copied" from somewhere else.

    I have the two psu linked together to start at the same time...1 is for the system and the other for the secundary stuff's 2x 120mm Fan's and Cold-cathode ( cooling in general).


    yes, I already think of that... fan grill's like biohazard or atomic power or something...

    not yet, i'm waiting for the acrilic bolts ...:D

    NiHiLiST has a good point about the fan/finger guards. I already lost a slice of finger on some simple 60x60mm coolermaster fan *auch* It bled like hell...

    Albertoliveira: I really like the box! :rock:

    Albertoliveira: the specs in your signature are the specs of the system running in your ICE-CUBE?

    yes, :D I know that pain, I already felt it on the blades in the papst 120mm in the front :hehe:
    I have finger guards in the front, but inside the box I don't need them because probably I only touch something inside with the power off ( I hope so ) :D
    And you peolpe know that finger guards make more noise than without them....and I want my cube to be silent ( and it is ), besides the 2 PAPST 120mm with 165CFM's ( with a voltage control switch on the back ).



    Yes, my signature show thw material inside, and if you want tempratures : idle 36/37 and in full 38/39º- the diference in idle and full it's only 2º......:D :D

    no, I dont have anything over there, but in the future probably I will put some blue neon under it.
    The bottom has that shape to hold strait the inox bars in the 4 corners of the box. His function is to bare with the weight and to hold the all box...

    You haven't truly felt the pain until you manage to drop a running 120mm YS-Tech 135CFM beast onto your finger and manage to shatter a fan blade off :wallbash:

    Now THAT'S pain.

    Albertoliveira: Those temps are in celsius or fahrenheit? If they're fahrenheit, then it's pretty cool, but celsius... I'm running my system on 24 celsius :p lol... j/k The temps are ok, since you're not running the same crappy, overcooled system that I run :)

    Surely it'd have been easier just to get an uprated PSU rather than have two seperate ones?

    Sweet case tho.
