    Wowzers

    This build is sick! I'm a temp for a company called Adecco, and am currently working at a factory that has all the aluminum stuff that you have used for your mod. Shame I don't have the time, patience or money to do something like this. Guess I'm gonna have to settle with my own modded factory case. We make fuse boxes, and I've been thinking of doing a dual system kinda thing for a while, but setbacks mentioned above have kept me from doing it. Would be nice if someone else could realise my dream. Dual system, Linux for regular use and Windows for gaming and design work. 2 Motherboards, 2 screens, 1 keyboard, 1 mouse, etc... All in one box. Would be a nice idea huh? :thumb:

    Love the res. I can't wait to see the whole thing up and running. Those fan grills are cool as well. I can't believe you cut all that by hand. You must have forarms like Popeye. :dremel:

    The Resetter, I like your mod so much - I have just read through all of the pages.

    The QbiX cube is sweet. I'm definitly subscribing to this thread. I really like the brushed aluminum look - you might want to consider chroming some parts also though. I wonder how it would look if there were a few parts chromed and some brushed - might look nice!

    It's the first time I have actually seen someone making PCB boards - I seriously admire your l33t skillz :dremel:
    You make me want to learn how to make all that, especially the electronics for the PCB.
    While reading on, I was really wondering how you will do the watercooling. And yay - page 7 I see a modded Eheim :thumb: Great work - makes me want to sell my Hydor L30 pump and buy the Eheim just to mod it like that! :naughty: Oooh reservoir, ooh attached to the case.

    Other than that... :jawdrop: :jawdrop:

    Look like vibration absorbing pump feet to me, or at least that's what I have seen them sold for. You can get them here among other places. If you are just looking to make you mobo stand up higher you would be better off using multiple normal standoffs or just using a threaded rod and nuts though. The pump feet would get expensive if you bought enough to mount a mobo.

    Resetter said before, these are anti-vibration standoffs from an Eheim pump.
