    I've been lurking modding forums for a few months now, but felt that I had to sign up for an account just so i could post and tell you how absolutely amazed and impressed I am with this build.

    It is flawless ... You have great artistic feeling living in perfect unison with a highly technical and functioning design. The level and quality of your work is top notch, the best I've ever seen. So much so that I have to ask, what did you use to cut your case with? obviously a hand power drill/drill press/various hole saw cutouts were used for your circular artistic touches, but for example when cutting the mobo tray and the hard drive cage etc, what did you use to get such perfect cuts? They look laser cut they are so nice....

    When i've pondered the idea of a completely white build in the past, i thought that i would look plain, but this is anything but plain, totally changed the way i look at modding, your project has really had an impact on me, thanks for taking the time to post such a detailed and instructional log.

    PS, your pics are great too, must be a nice camera you're using,

    MOD ON :D

    the front plate's and the GPU covers are made by lazer cutting machine so i think that it takes around 10 to 15 min maybe

    The rest of the parts are all hand made lets say that it keeps you busy when u have noting else to do ^^

    Thanks for the the comment Airboren
    it is really a pleasure that my build pushed u so far to make a account here on the forum so u could post in my build log :D

    For the tool that i used on the motherboard tray was a electronic jigsaw + a drill to make some holes and when i am done whit those tools i start with the files and sanding paper.

    And for the HDD bay i use manual jigsaw (else the plexi would melt) + a drill and then the same steps i did like the motherboard tray

    The Camera i am using is a Samsung NV24HD

    Lol idd ^^

    Small update

    GPU Covers are ready to be painted.
    I finished off the top cover with some plexi and a led.
    Not much to tell about then showing u guys some pictures ^^

    Started with plexi by cutting the right shape that i needed the i frosted 1 side of it.
    [​IMG]
    got a few stickers from work with me very handy ^^
    [​IMG]
    On the back side of the sticker is some kind of aluminum foil helps spreading the light true the plexi and also helps isolating the light that it docent shine true the back
