Nice, do you stretch it a lot or not ?
Love the orange BTW. thumb.gif

Cheers biggrin.gif
I stuffed the front panel in the tights and then put the mesh in place, so it did stretch quite a bit.
I'd estimate around 50% or so from "rest" to 100% stretched biggrin.gif

Ah cool thanks. thumb.gif

Personally I'd also cut the frame in front of the fans.

Yeah I thought about cutting the frame and I might do it someday, but I can't even see the front until I get a new desk (and I'm lazy) so it'll stay as it is for now. It might also make the front weaker, dont know yet...

It's beautiful! I hope you plan on doing the mesh on the side too?

Thanks! I was actually planning on some kind of case badge to cover it since it would look a bit off if I just painted it orange. But yea, I'm thinking about it!

Just ordered 180€ worth of peripherals and I still need to get a CPU cooler, likely a Corator DS since the TY-141 on HR02 probably wouldn't fit, and I also need to order a bracket from Dwood for my 7870 which is a big letdown considering that all the former TF-cards have been cool and quiet:
I feel sorry for my bank account redface.gif 180€ + 60-80€ ...

What I ordered:
CM Quickfire Rapid (cherry blacks, tenkeyless) wanted reds though...
Steelseries QcK+ Fnatic edition
Steelseries Sensei Fnatic edition

Now I have no idea who Fnatic is/are, I ordered them 'cause they look AWESOME and I love orange. And the stock sensei has terrible coating...

You should bust out a dremel and just make a window. I think it would look pretty nice. The way that side vent kinda pops out is kinda bad. I don't think putting something over it would look as nice.
