    Looks nice, I cant see how you'd use it as a visual HTPC with it being in the same continent as the display :)

    Top marks for using ram that could run faster than the processor :p

    Very nice mod. Love the way it's put together. Colour scheme is a little "loud" for me.

    What software are you using for a frontend?

    Im loving this project and hating it...
    both because i had a project that was literally the exact same idea...well parts of it...so now its once again back to the drawing board for originality...

    on a lighter note i love this case, brilliance is simple.

    Out of all the mods I've seen and never commented on.. This one, for some reason is the best to me.... I'm no Devil man either!

    I dislike the colors the weakness of the overall system, yet this is the best mod I've ever seen. Art, this is.

    There's something totally old school and awesome about this mod. From an artistic or practical stand it doesn't do anything for me but I just, well, like it.

    Thank for the kind words :) I just wanted to comment on the colors. The thing is that the case itself has no lights at all im using an external uv spotlight to make it glow and when the uv isnt turned on it really doesnt stick out at all. I really didnt want anything that would have a ton of lights to distract me from the tv screen but when me and some friends ar having a few cold beers to the sounds of Arch Enemy then it can glow all it wants to :) As for software right now its running Win XP and LCD Studio to run the Matrix orbital.

    Wow, amazingly awesome as always man. I'm loving how it glows just enough to give it a cool vibe without being too overpowering or distracting.

    Very, very cool.
    Only one thing bugs me: that's an inverted pentagram. Much like an inverted cross or the like...

    Well i do agree that the dominators is very overkill ut i just used what i had and actually i only had dominators and the 8500s was the slowest of them :) Would have been even more mad to have used one of my Pc10000 :D
