    do you have enough room between the monitor and the vga card? (just to let you close the side-panel....

    Next up is neatening the insides, also got too get the bracket painted or anodised black so that it mached and a front plate too hide the brackets and house the buttons because at the moment i can't make it lighter or darker or switch it onw ithout taking the back off.

    more too come from the cube let me know what you think and all images clickable :).


    Thanks

    Plans

    well got a few ideas wanna nock them about

    base
    Wanna add some sort of wheel too the unit.
    Casters
    go kart
    other..

    Sides
    Clean up the TFT and possible add a 2nd too the other side
    Chrome the top and 2 sides and re-powder coat the cube chassi and racks
    Sleek up the front cover the 2 HDDs and try and stealth the DVD drive
    Front may need some grills but not entirely sure[comments]
    also replace all screws with polished 3mm hex heads

    what you guys think needs too be done

    pretty cool, man. maybe consider masking the screen more so that black completely surrounds it. i also think you definately need to run samurize or something like it

    http://www.samurize.com

    this is the config i put together with bits and pieces i found in the download section of their website and editing of things other people put together. i found it very easy to do and am very happy with it.

    also, you must check out what Nexxo did with his 3.5" [i assume] LCD
    http://forums.bit-tech.net/showpost.php?p=1026901&postcount=1083
    it's really not a ton of work to make something that pretty.

    check it out

    seen nexxo's was thinking ofr that but im not really interested in my temps or cpu usage anymore, if it doesn't crash im good ttoo go :) im mainly running movies and winamp on the screen as its a tft doing 1024x768 it can do more then a 3.5" PS one screen.

    I may consider the flow meter though looks like a good plan.

    Thats a small hint too what might happen next

    ive put something like this into my own mod which will be finished in a couple of weeks time ...There is a pic below i put two 17" tft's into a MOUNTAINMOD U2-UFO case plus the 6" LCD TV.."As you may noticed this pic was just befor i put the second tft on so i impossed it on ,when i get home from work i post the really pic which is just the same"..but ive placed hinges on them so that they open out to face you and when its finished there will be a thrid tft "sitting on the top of the case but then sliding down on rails so that all three are in line ,so that i can span my desktop across them ..
    Anyhow eoungh about me ..lol..what i wanted to say to you is that these TFT's give out ALOT!!! of heat so make sure you allow for this ,as your case temps will go through the roof if you dont box it in plexy with an out-flow fan above it or to the side of it ...so be carefull ...it will look great when you finish it best of look with this mod ..im hooked already

    the whole case is watercooled and the temps havn't changed much got a fan int he fornt and the back that draws air across the back of the screen which has not over on it so that the PSU and control board are cooled down.

    your case looks nice it hought about peano hinges they should work well but i dunno if i want the screens as my main as im planning on either 2 20s or a 24" dell so woudlnt' work well just there for pure show and movies etc..

    I like the grills on the front of your case

    I watched your case since birth when scampi had it ...its a class mod i loved the plexy shelf that ran from the 5" drive bay across to the rear top of the case nice work ...
    ive got rid of the harddrive bay completly it gives much more space and better air flow of the harddrives are not blocking the air going out of the case ...
    i have the harddrives flush with the back of the mobo tray sitting in a cut of plexy .its a bit hard to put into words but it works and looks well ...

    i got to hand it to you its one sweet rig you got there ...best of luck with the modding
