    I was wondering how to best describe your design, then it came to me.... MAJESTIC...

    Its very beautiful. Great Work.

    Question: Where are you putting the Optical Drive/s?

    Thanx four the complement :D

    Hmm.... Majestic. I like it :D maybe ill change it o that ^^

    optics will be done outside the case. True usb.

    And hard drives like the Western Digital VelociRaptor wear planed at the air duct's of the side's. So the over pressure in the case can get out of there and take the hot air out true that way. So the side air ducts ain't just statics but also yous full. The others behind the neon :dremel:

    that case looks sick, i really like the angles on it, I like the bottom flared out like that, kinda similar to the ugly duckling case i had thought up a while back, well kinda.

    realy nice case i like that alu pannel you made, the first side pannel looks like a realy tight fit in the case is it not to tight because of the paint or is it going to be closed???

    keep on modding :dremel:

    That thing is gonna weight a TON. But I don't care, I like the design! And if the weight isn't an issue than it's gonna be one kickass case :) Keep it up and don't piss that cat off, she looks like she doesn't have a sense of humor :D

    First. tranc3, rambo and Jipa. Thanx four your wonderful complements :D

    @ rambo. Thay are pritty tight. I have the tendency to think i work with metal :p And make the space some times to tight. But Thats not a real big problem. Stil need to sand almost every thing down :p

    @Jipa. I am a afraid all sow its going to way a lot :p without the side panels its freaking heavy. So with all the water hdd's and stuff in its going to be a back breaker :p
