If I may respectfully comment:
Most of the things that people make are variations on a theme. The theme is such because the model is the one that most suits the needs of the object.
For example, all wheels are round (not trying to be an arse, or snide... merely a blatantly obvious design concept) as nothing else will do for that particular job.
That being said and functionality aside, there is a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure from looking back at project (regardless of nature) and saying,
"Yeah, I made that with my own 2 hands. Sure, it may be very similar or exactly like something else... but I made it myself".
Again, I mean no disrespect but imho a labor of ambition and love is unique.
Indeed, Smokies design follows the timeless design of an ATX case... but it is crafted with his hands. Imho that alone makes it priceless.
Well i have already drilled the holes for the psu. I dirilled on set one way and the othe set the other way so that the PSU, depending on its positioning of its fans can be the right way up or up side down. I also am going to buy some struts, so when i undo the side pannel the side will automatically pop up as the scews are taken off so it would look like it is on hydrolics and im still concidering putting a window on the top. And i dont mind a bit of noise. I can never hear it because i always have my 5.1 caranked.
I will do anothe build in a couple of years time. Im only 17 and havnt had much experience and i had no blue prints to go off of. I just made it up as i went along. So this one is a bit primative. But when i do my second build in a year or two i will definetly be doing something more extream and personal.
