    woah, I like the theme you've got going :thumb:

    TBH, I think a fan hole on the side of the case is ugly :p

    Damn, looking good

    Love the top with mesh.
    But won't there be a lot of dust getting down to the components? (Maybe som plexi under the mesh could solve this?)

    How did you get the sidepanel and fangrill, so...... smooth?

    What are you going to do to the front?

    I think it looks ugly too, you should have just cut a cricular hole in the side, put the mesh behind that and then put the fan screw behind that. Then it would look very slick.
    I guess he used a very low grit wet and dry paper, something like 1400 i would think.

    thanks friends for the good feedback - :thumb:
    for sanding i used P600 (looking for P1400 - P2000 -but it's hard to find !)
    and it took me 2 hours -

    for the cut , i decided to do something....special.

    The only thing I don't like about that side panel is the raised grile. I mean it might look good if it wern't rasied so much, or if the risers were different.
