    Thanks guys! My bro should be home this Saturday, so shots will come soon. I just wish there was a way to anti-static the entire case besides dunking it in a bucket of water....every time I try to rub off the fingerprints it just scratches the plastic more, and attracts dust...lol

    Excellent!

    Why does this have no stars? Is our community slacking off?

    @oldnewby: Thanks! Now that this is done I just wish I had the money to do another. There is definitely something coming in the future though.....possibly involving mini-itx, HDMI, and super quiet cooling (hint: HTPC):D

    The final shots are beautiful, very nice end result. The only thing that annoys me is that the CCFL inverter is blue, quite an eye-sore IMO, paint it black and you have a winner.

    Did someone say Million-Dollar-PC nomination, well I did, you get one from me lol.

    Thanks man!! I had no idea it was worthy...hell, now that I think of it, I could try for mod of the month.... that seems more likely, although there is some pretty epic competition there as well.

    Oh, and I kinda put the ccfl and inverter in at the last minute, so I didn't think to paint it, but I will when I get the time.

    @Spyrious: thanks as well

    Btw, I just ordered a new vid card (silent Sapphire HD 4670 w/heatpipes) and 2 gigs more ram (for a total of 4gigs). I plan to try and silence the case, because as it is right now it's pretty loud, and I want to do some audio recording. Eventually I hope to order some sound proofing foam and some Noctua fans, as well as a passive CPU heatsink.

    Very nice..

    But replace that CPU cooler with one that looks better, and performs in the same direction :D

    Excellent work - like the powdercoating and laser cutting. My only suggestion is to paint the USB plate black.

    When I get some free time, I'll paint the usb plate and the inverter, as well as keep the log updated with pics of the soundproofing :)
