    That case is something like 200 pounds. Wouldn't it be cheaper to scratch build? What if something goes wrong and it gets messed up?

    Neat upgrade to an already interesting case. That's the first time I've seen a custom extrusion for the motherboard tray. Your munchkin should get a kid-sized mouse too. I'd hate to see juvenile carpal tunnel become the new ADHD.

    Need new a new idea,

    how about to wrap the keyboard in red carbon ?
    maybe paint the whole case, also the front and back. How do you think off that.

    i think the whole case black would be a brilliant idea , a nice matt/Low gloss finish ,
