    Hello everyone,
    this is a mod i've done a while back, before we started using mate plexi (as you'll see by the hardware used) but i decided to share it with all of you :)

    The theme for this mod will be the video game Little big planet, which i'm a fan of, and i hope you like it.

    Laser Hetch on the side panel.

    Pictures are back! Not your issue - PhotoBucket problems. Very nice.

    Where did all the honeycomb mesh come from? With the case?

    This is looking really clean. That's not easy with as much gear as you have packed in there. I like the layout.

    Nice build dude... although in this config wouldn't the water just pass straight thru without going through the blocks?

    lol, no it wouldn't. these 295gtx are not like all the other blocks. there's 2 holes on each side, but they are connected. so for the waterblocks to work, the in and the out must be on oposite sides. be it aligned or not ;). So yes, they are correctly assembled :)

    yes. all laser etched :p
    we did this. it was the first laser cut project we did back in 2009.

    just to finish the project... the side panel that took me a long time to prep for the etching... unfortunately the images don't do it any justice :(

    the image used...
