    Newegg has a nice rebate on the 800w version of that PSU. It brings it down to like 10$ more than the 700w version.

    Just a heads up ;)

    Sweet, Bill! Nice choice on hardware too. I'm itching to get my hands on one of those new 8200 boards myself. Any plans on modding the PSU, or leaving the warranty intact?

    Thanks for the tip, I'll pass it onto Brad, but he may have ordered it already.

    The zalman, because of the low ceiling in the Microfly.

    Brad is soooo itching to use this, I don't think I'll be able to grab that PSU from him :hehe:

    Nice designs and cool CNC machine work. I like the dragon but I don't have anything with fans anymore.

    Even if I were running silent, I'd still use one of these grills simply for the 'bad-ass factor'. It's so cool seeing the machining at work. The exclamation and the covering of the lens still makes me laugh! :hehe:

    That's one hell of a machine. :clap: I'm learing to use a cnc machine myself in my school but that's just amazing.

    I would not film inside while the machine is working, Its dangerous :nono:

    It is fun isn't it?! :lol:

    Agree, fan grills definately play a role in creating a cool theme.

    I must always risk my limbs for "that certain shot" tho

    A tri-pod and zoom will solve that problem =p

    Anyhow I like the sketch designs but to be honest most of those have already been done to death but I guess it would be kinda a hard to make something now and days that hasnt already been done... as always I do enjoy your vids. ^_^

    Paint and anodizing is finished. Heres shots as I did a pre-assemble before system install. I'm still debating about idea for the front bezel. I want to offset the Blue. I'm looking @ making Krusty heads to mount over the front grills on rotating pivets. Brad is coming in this afternoon with some of the hardware thats arrived.

    Some people have emailed me and asked, "How did you mount the 120mm fan inside the case?" I cut a notch in the chassis, shown here

    Gorgeous! Looks awesome, Bill! Krusty heads that rotate? HAHAHAH!! Awesome idea, and it'd fit the theme nicely.

    It looks great! Crusty spinners would rule, but it will be tough to get them balanced so they spin. You might need to do 2 crustys(crusties?) in the 69 position.:hehe:
