It will soon, when I have taken the just right "show" pictures both with UV on and Off.
Hope you will vote for it
Also some people asked about the windows (no pictures, sorry). But here is a short "How I did it":
The windows I have made myself along with my dad and the machines he got.
The holes in the side panel were the easy part. Drilled four holes at each corner of where the windows is going to be (we used a 13 mm drill) and then gut the rest with Jigsaw.
Window was a bit trickier. We could have made it easy by just clue it on, but it wouldn't give a smooth transition from side panel to window.
So we cut the 3 mm Plexiglas with 1-2 cm more than the holes dimensions. Then we used a big stationary saw to take away approx. 1 mm of thickness of the glass in that 1-2 cm out of the holes dimensions, and then we filed the corners round. And the we clued the side on leaving us with a smooth transition
Also if you consider doing these windows, the make both sides big and cover the I/O panel on the left side and use two of something like these in to top or something:
(Looking back, that I should have done, since the I/O panel is a pain in the ass to work with when the side is getting of and on because of the rad and fan... I can live with out the USB and Audio)
I would also like to give you some more pictures and bench + OC and temps (have been getting some settings I will try out), but my front fan ran only with 600 RPM at maks speed out of 900 rpm that it should, silent but not that much air being pushed.. so I bought a new one, coming in tomorrow
(the other one have been taken out and played around with until i broke (Played = trying to find out why it was so slow))...Edited by Fruergaard - 10/20/12 at 6:02am
