Naming the build Charlotte merely because I thought it was elegant and different from most other builds, it also makes the woman happier about the money dumped into this! rolleyes.gif

8jay8: the faceplate will be laser cut with the design and will then be sandwiched with a luminous acrylic panel and metal sheet that has been covered in foil tape. Then, just add a few LEDs to the side and voila, luminous logo!

Thanks for subbing guys, hopefully this build will exceed all of our expectations! thumb.gif

The time has come to buy fans!

Shall I go with:

-SP120 QE's
-SP120 HP's
-Scythe GT's
-Anything else you guys can think of thumb.gif

Some pictures just to tease rolleyes.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







And the inverted backplate with logo Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Any criticism is welcomed, I'm excited to hear what you guys think. Let me know how you guys like the formatting of the spoilers and if you have any suggestions for my photography. I really want to take the best pictures I can with this Rebel xTi, so any comments will help. I have many more parts planned out, but I'm not quite ready to show them off yet. thumb.gif

Til' next time!
