Looking good. Always respect people who build their own case.
Thanks to all for the nice comments
HAHA, it's in the sixth post .
It is dark gray acrylic (#2074), so you can actually see through it, but it is so dark and reflective that you can only see through it when the light is right. So at first glance you can't see through it, but when you move around it and get closer, you can see the outline of things inside (particularly the colored things.
i absolutely love green/black combos, and you have one of the best ive seen. i think it would be better, however, if you rounded the corners of the green plexi endplates like all the other green plexi. this would tie it all together imo.
I agree with you about the "endpates" and that's exactly what I originally intended to do. But with the side panels/frame of the case being square, it just wouldn't look right as the curves on the corners would come very close to the edge of the case. I can always round them off later if I change my mind, but I'm just afraid to do it and not be happy with the outcome...
ok, i can see how that makes sense. they wouldnt need the same diameter, you could just sand the corners down a little and make it look much better.
aaahhhh, I see what you mean....
Hmmm, I'll think about it
That looks really excellent. It took a while, but the end result is great!
Thanks Krikkit. And thank's bit-tech for the front page honors!
A thoroughly deserved front page. I love the look of this mod as it's so unique.
Well, finally got this thing up and running, only to find out the power switch doesn't work right (or at all)
Regardless, here are a few final pics for everyone. I don't have much time right now as I'm busy all weekend, but I'll update with some more, better pictures of the assembly and final result later on at an unspecified date
I realize some of the pics are blurry, I apologise, I need to invest in a tri-pod
I also totally forgot to paint up some expansion card slot covers and some wire fan grills for the back panel. I'll see if I can get those fabricated sometime later on. But for now, I think you get the idea
nice one! it's awsome
i allways loved home made box's
wow it turned out great.
can i ask what brand of fan controller you are using, its a nice 4 fan controller that fits in a 3.5in bay. perfect for my plans...........
It is the Noise Isolator VR Fan Speed Controller

The front is about 11 inches square and the case is about 14 inches deep.

Here are a couple more random shots...
The motherboard (Gigabyte GA-M61PM-S2) with upgraded chipset cooling (a Zalman ZM-NB47J), AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600 Brisbane, 2x512MB Team Group Team Extreem DDR2-800 CAS 4 (good ol' Micron D9GMH chips), Zalman CNPS-9500AM2; all mounted to the mobo tray:
The Lower half of the case with 500W Enermax Liberty PSU, two PATA optical drives (one DVD burner, one DVD-ROM), and two Hard Drives (but only one Seagate Barracuda 250GB 7200.8 is being used right now).
And a slightly less blurry lit up shot...
(don't mind the top panel that isn't shut all the way. I was messing with the power switch trying to get it to work...)
Very nice, looking excellent.
I think I'm using the examct same black screws for my acrylic as you are. I also got loads of those snap-on molex connectors for my PSU modding at the end of my project =D
