    From reading the Mountain Mods H2g0 reveiw in Custom PC's magazine (Issue 068, page51) I fell in love with cube cases but I wasn't going to get a mirco-atx cuboidy case nor was I going to spend £305 on the H2g0. So I sat and thought about it, I love making things so why not try to make one, this was the result it isn't finished yet but unlike a lot of people on here i will update this thread within a couple of days when I have finished!

    Yeh, still need to make the side panels, varnish then spray it black.

    Top left the DVD drive slots 3 max still neeed to do the 3rd. Bottom motherboard and tray.

    Top left PSU, top right HDD racks max 4 still need to finish. Again bottom motherboard and
    tray.

    A top view of the case with the PSU, optical drives and HDDs.

    The bottom tray with the motherboard and cables coming down onto it.

    The HDD rack.

    The optical drive rack.

    The front, I know is ugly at the moment but will look a lot better with some LED lit fans and a matt black finish.

    The back of the case needs to expantion slot ports cutting out and the I/O plate hole cutting along with a hole for the PSU to breathe.

    The motherboard will be prescewed onto the tray which can be slid in and out.

    So all I need to do is cut out the appropriate holes, sand, install fans and lighting, install an on/off switch, finish the drive bays and fill the holes in the case with wood filler vanish then spray it black then vanish again to give a protective layer. Easy!!!
