    WOW!:jawdrop: That Case is AMAZING! This is one of the best cases I have seen (and I have seen alot). It is a very clean mod and what I mean by that, is that it doesn't have tons of stuff on the outside. I like how you hid the PSU. I really like the mesh on the case. There is not a part on the case I don't like LOL :D

    Can't wait to see your next one! :rock: :clap: :cooldude:

    That's a very trick looking PC, dude. :clap: Great work!

    BTW does anyone else think it looks like "Deep Thought" from the BBC series based on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?

    You got it wrong dude, I think I will be taking lessons from you!

    I have been away awhile and to come back and see your work (both here and your HL2 Case) is a real pleasure. Wonderful.

    It's times like these I feel inspired. Thanks Piloux.

    Stunning, absolutely stunning. Your case is a true work of art. It is definately up there with the work by Zapwizard and G-gnome.

    Never doubt your abilities again! :thumb:

    That is brilliant!

    I can only imagine the frustration you had when the paint cracked after what you thought was the final paint job.

    Absolutely mint.

    Well done!

    As others already said, it's a top job :thumb:

    One little thing: what about using hex/torx screws to fasten the window? IMO they look better than simple X screws, and you can found black and steel colored ones.

    (your HL2 case is another fine case ofkorz:) )

    the case really looks awesome. the only thing i would change is the mesh.

    rather than having separate pieces of mesh, and having them cut up like you have them, i would just use one long piece of mesh. I would cut a slit in the mesh large enough to allow a cd to go into a slot loading optical drive (you can get a CD/DVD-ROM one for like $80 i think). I would also not cut holes for the fans. The mesh has holes in it anyway. I think using one long piece of mesh would make it all fit together better.

    Anyways, just my 2 cents. Your case really looks amazing. Good job! :)

    thank you very much ,

    this is a good idea about the mesh , when I was working on this project I haven't found this type of mesh in bigger size and tis is the reason why I make it with two pieces
