    Just thought that I would post a couple of pics of the windows that I cut into my Sonata today. Trying to get a decent design to remove the ANTEC vent holes which were drilled into the side was interesting. I had to sacarafice seeing the horziontal support bar to make to top window look decent (otherwise it would have been too narrow for my liking).

    BTW...Just installed a pair of the billet case handles over at mnpctech. They are sweet. (Bill These Are Amazing. Thanks)

    Let me know what you think.

    Without a doubt, Bill's handles are well cool, but at this time I don't think they fit the rest of the case.. its too early to tell though I guess. What else is planned for this case?

    The final overall theme has yet to be determined (that's why I not making a project log). I am probally going to paint the outside of the case to compliment the dark red plexi accents that I have planned. I a have most of the watercooling (everything except the pump) purchased.

    Alphacool Products
    NexXxoS Graphics Card Block
    Cape Resivoir (copper)
    NexXxoS XP Bold AMD 64

    I have some cool ideas for the wiring of the electricals. Inspired by Defyant's RCA connectors and some connectors I used to work with when I worked at a TV studio I am going to use BNC connectors with mini-59 wire to keep everything clean. Like an RCA connector a BNC connector has 2 conductors; the only difference is that they twist lock into place maintaining a secure connection. Mini-59 is a coaxial cable just like RG-59 (the stuff you use to hook up your tv) except that it is only 1/8-inch in diameter and extremely flexible.

    As you can see in the pictures I have already removed the hdd cage to make room for a front mouted radiator (a 2x120 BIP)

    Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
