    alright a long overdue update. I finished this in I believe october... Still thigns left unfinished but i like the look. Its very contemporary IMO. Watercooling is up and running and is great.

    The case isn't the product of this log IMO... You all tought me safety and how to use tools... which i cannot thank you guys enough. I will post pictures (finally) once i find my charger.

    regards

    I know where you're coming from man, and somtimes it takes a loss to win if you know what I mean. I spent $120.00 on a scratch build just to start over and do things the way it should've been done in the 1st place, not to mention ALOT of work.

    Thanks! The more i learn the more i realize i don't know. I am entering the field of machining... which is very difficult. Im also trying to teach myself the field of mechanical engineering and thermodynamics, and electricity is still not a field i am even close to understanding... But this project is what got my lips wet in terms of all this stuff. Thank you all:clap:
    Exactly...

    Lots of things i made for this but wo n't go into. I put the hard drive racks on springs:clap:

    I don't remember those handles. Can they actually support the load of the PC?

    I noticed one of the fans on the right is exhausting while the others are all intakes; this is not good for airflow and decreases the effectiveness of the radiator.

    If there is no buffer between the fans and the radiator, maybe it would be better if they were all oriented in the exhaust direction.
