    Thanks wilkinson :)

    Did a bit more work on the psu, mounted it on the bottom panel of the case and I've made the holes for the connectors in the top of the psu:

    Thanks guys :)

    Dispite of the hectic last couple of days (I became a daddy yesterday!!) I did manage to find some modding time. I've evened out all of the 'corners' of the frame. The frame, the plexi strips and the aluminum panels now all are the same size. I still need to do some small corrections with a small file, but it looks quite nice already:

    I've also countersunk the screws on the left side of the case, looks alot cleaner this way:

    Up next is finishing the PSU housing and placing the pump :)

    Thanks A80 :)

    I've finished the 2nd pass-through to the top of the case and connected some of the parts to check if everything lines up correctly:

    Thank you Dirky!

    For the aluminium and plexi I just use basic tools:

    A couple of big files to get rid of the big chunks, smaller files for the details, sandpaper to smooth the edges. Most important is alot of patience :)

    This looks fantastic.
    I love the way you used the fittings... it gives more of a industrial look to the build :)

    Haven't had much time to mod lately, but I found some time to get this done:

    I've countersunk the screws in both sides now, which gives the whole case a much sleeker look. I've also added some ledstrips in the top part of the case. For the lightning I've ordered a RGB Led Controller with remote control.
