    Its looking good man, Nice to see someone use wood, and its crazy that you have a slide out motherboard tray.

    Hope to see another update soon!

    cheers, WarriorRocker

    The design looks nice as there's mobo-tray and sidepanels are curved BUT. Imo wooden cases + windows = no match. The dvd-drive also looks terrible atm, I really hope you'll figure out a way to hide it!

    Keep it coming.

    why not just remove the bezwl for the cd drive and use a vinel that matches the colour of the wood and sticking it on the bezel should prove quite effective.

    on the front center there is a piece of plexi that is frosted and has blue LEds behind it. When I get time I will mill a cool design on it so that it'll light up. there are two LEd holders and the power and reset switches. the switches have a piece of tiger wood covering them.

    also do you think I could sell some custom made cooling blocks? and how much?

    Hmm that block looks like a real flow killer, and i mean really dead :p.
    And why didn't you use copper?

    copper = expensive...

    and if the flow is slow, thats more time for the water to absorb heat, no?

    Have you already tested the block? checking how big of an flow killer it is.

    i beg to differ on that, that block is a flow killer, the idea is to asborb heat and remove heat quickly, the water in a block heats up very quickly!! that why if your pump fails the CPU will go pop!

    if the idea is to flow water through quickly why do the commercial blocks have pillars to slow down water flow?

    im not sure if im correct but i think those are to dissipate the heat into the water, not slow it down, sort of like an underwater heatsink

    No, those pillars are to create turbulence, which makes the water swirls around in the block longer.

    Besides, dont look at the block and say it sucks, the man has used it and says that it works.
