Help on front design defyant style :)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need some advice.....im in abit of a problem ya see! i am in the process of the designing stage of my new fractal mini case, but the front i am stuck on, so on a matter of each persons personaly thoughts i hopfully will make a choice!

So ignoring the look of each case, can people pay attention only too the blow holes,

Now this is defyants work not my own, so all credit go's to defyant! he is THE master of plexi/bondo work smile.gif

So which would be a better choice for my case? i cannot decide what design to do, if i did the 2nd one, i would move the vents to a different postion,

If i did the double blowhole i would have to rethink about where to place the power button...so thoughts?

I like the double blowhole look...You could move your power buttons to the top of the case easy enough. There are plenty of aftermarket switches you could use. I'm sure you could find something to match your theme.
