    I liked the pic of "bits all over the house" That's not half as bad as what I'm like ..... it's always a fine line to tread when you need your kit to hand and keeping the other half pacified.

    Liking your project :thumb:

    Midplate

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    then cut and shape to fit in the case
    [​IMG]
    overall shot
    [​IMG]
    i still need to remove some material to make room for the mobo tray, but i killed the cutter i before i could get to cutting it. so when i was ready to cut and it was up to speed i was showered in green plastic from the indside of the cutter....

    Hi! :D
    And unless it is possible to use this pomp in vertical situation?
    This pomp not self-soaking up, extremely isn't recommended to have its soaking-up union down as fast wear of an imeller and the bearing is possible.
    Or I am not right? :geek:

    The ATX 24-pin cables and SATA cables: I would make holes right next to the MoBo, so they go to the other side by the egde of the motherboard, in my opinion that would look way cooler ;)
    I have an impression that now the cables itself attract too much attention

    But besides, the whole project looks great ;)

    And if I can suggest something more, think about good lighting to expose the facture of the mahogany ;)
