Ok ok heres some quick pictures, it is up and running and being used as my work computer as intended. Few things to do like switch out the bracket(thats a gtx470 not a 680). Get all my orange sleeved extensions in there and tidy up some.

has all been lost with this case?

Dwood, how sturdy is the case? I'm interested in an air cooled version of this case which would eliminate the need for the top rad space but extend PCI slots to 4 instead of the current 2. Obviously I'd pay for the difference in having it customized to that config biggrin.gif I've been looking everywhere to find an mATX or mITX case that could fit my NH-D14 and Prolimatech MK-26 gpu cooler.

Would you mind if I copy your idea, redirecting to this thread giving you credits ofc?

EDIT: Another question, as I did some tests with 3mm acrylics. Are these tabs sturdy enough, as my acrylics broke when I bent the little tabs a little too much. Snypping the parts together one time was no problem, but when trying to seperate the two pieces, the tabs simply snapped and broke.

Of course not man, go ahead.


Yep the tabs are sturdy, I use the case everyday as my work computer. I used around 4.8mm acrylic and it took quite a few different designs before I found the right one that was the right strength/flexible. Then the final design I kept in my pocket and played with clipping it in and out for a week when I was doing nothing.

The design is probably as good as I could get it but they can still break if forced wrong or not treated with care. I think thats one of the main reasons I havnt finished getting it ready for main stream selling, I didnt want people breaking tabs from being too rough and blaming it on me.

Or you can do what I did, and basically have this case made in steel thumb.gif Any updates?
