Subbed. Looks awesome, I always liked the look of the G5s but this is really slick, I like a lot!

Thanks

UPDATE!

Finally got home and have been able to work on the case itself, first thing I did was to strip all of the components out of it, first I weighed it with all the parts in as well as all of the bits that have been cut away just out of curiosity, the result was 15.6KG I then weighed it without all of the parts and panels, now it is only 7.5KG! Also used a HUGE drill to drill out the rivets holding the middle shelf in place, this came away neatly as did the little bracket used to support long graphics cards. I also cut the center piece of metal in the PSU hole at the back. Being at home means I have few tools compared to school so this will all be cleared up soon when I go back. Thats all for now, on with the photos!

How about 3x 240mm radiators? Just checked it out and should fit just fine biggrin.gif Gonna be a nightmare to run tubing though, plan on using clear acrylic pipe from E22 so it is critical that I get all the bends in the right place for it to work!

Wow! If you can fit all of those radiators, that would be amazing!

when i read E22 in any mod it excites me in a strange way. Doing all this in a Mac case is just insane. Can't wait to see the final product!

On a side note, anyone know what I can do to prevent the paint scratching without losing the matte finish? atm it seems to scratch whenever something touches it frown.gif , will be able to get back to working on the case this coming week, also got my first (part-time) job starting on tuesday biggrin.gif not paid yet though frown.gif

Have you tried clear coating it?
