    Love it sk8roy. Especially the attention to detail and the paint job.

    A very unique G5 mod.

    Made one final update after staring at this thing all week. I did not like seeing the ends of the HDDs so I cut a few pieces of white plexi to cover them up. Still need to add my fourth drive, I have a 250gb I could stick in there but I might try and get a 2tb for there.

    So what you think, does it look better with the white covers?

    Beautiful case! The colour's brilliant and the execution of the internals is brilliant. In fact, I love it all - except - should that switch stick out the top?

    Sorry to be an arse. Oh, and I like it with the white covers on the HDDs.

    First off, it looks AWESOME!

    The asus cooler with its new colorscheme really makes it pop!

    The only thing I think you should improve, would be the front fan mounts. Do you think it would be possible to make a clever thingymajingy to mount them to the disk mounts?

    And I think you should leave the hdds uncovered!

    Actually I think the switch placement is OK. The top handles and bottom legs are wider than most people think. They are hard to photograh and get the real scale of them.
    This is well done.

    /edit Must resist another G5 mod! Too many going now, although....

    that rocker switch is for the lights. I did want one that was flush mounted but that is what I found. Since the case sits on my desk the switch actually sit in the back of the handle ad can be seen from the side, makes it easy to turn the lights on and off. The case provides some nice light when doing work at night, lights up my keyboard and desktop since I do not have an actaul light in my computer room.

    Quite late to say you that, but it's the most beautiful/funny/colories assembly of a G5 mod!!!
