Shipping off my windows to DD tomorrow.

I'd say regardless of waterblocks, definite completion within 3 weeks...I was originally shooting for late July/early August so, I'm happy with the ultimate conclusion.

For those of you that have been so patient...A teaser:

146

Just a little longer...

Yeah yeah, I'm working on it.

If anyone is interested in a similar saber, or designing your own...I have to admit that I am/was incredibly impressed with the saber and I could not be happier with Mr. Jeff Parks.

His website is: www.parksabers.com

There's no sound and the lead time is quite a bit but, the craftsmanship alone was beyond worth it.

I'll have some more pictures up when it gets here, as well as some mock-shots of the stand, etc.

We're in for some srs bsns.

I have a question for you guys.

I'm really debating having one of the monsoon windows, have my company logo...I think, it would be very nice to fully break free from Alienware and to have that on a case, would be awesome.

So, I was wondering what the thoughts were on that, especially in regards to a theme build...

I can ideally, put it anywhere but, I felt that on the front, it wouldn't be that invasive and a decent location for a logo.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

Thanks.

as achmed has always said: "location location location" i think it'd look fine on the case based on that statement

So today the Saber came but, I didn't realize how fickle acrylic tubing is...and I made a big booboo.

The stand itself, needs to go back to the drawing board for a complete re-design.

I also have some new parts from Caselabs coming...

In regards to the loops + fans etc, I'll have them built over the weekend.

I'm hoping to have the case assembled with 1 loop running by Monday.

By that time the new Acrylic will be here and the windows from Danger Den won't be in for @ 2 weeks, either.

Finally coming together...Woot, woot.
