Otherwise the case looks great, a few things that could be better, but looks great. The paint job really sets off the theme.
Ok, taking some now

Awesome mod. Love the craftmanship, very crude, yet an almost perfect fit. I was hoping those pipes played an active role, but they do give it a nice look.

I figured out earlier that wooden box was a base/stand for your case to house your radiators and misc watercooling stuff, I had a similar idea for my rig, but much more simpler, yours looks a lot cooler xD. Ive got a huge wooden box that was a small office bookshelf/endtable that I use as a stand for my case (there's probably a pic in the build log in my sig). I'll house all the stuff in there when I do take the plunge into water cooling.

If this was you first mod, ... and for your next, Id suggest you try and make all the attractions active, like they're all in use, not just show

That really turned out way better than I expected considering you used a can opener to cut your side panel (for example)

Looks pretty awsome. I like how you were able to use things available to you and to make everything work in a coheasive manner. There are actually lots of little things that if I had one any of the builds I have done, i would probably call them imperfections (like the circle cutout of the rear fan shroud), but in this case it seems to fit somehow.

Goes to show what can be done with thought, planning, and talent.

+rep to you O.CModderz

When are you going to put some hardware in it?

Thanks. Still, I already planned something for the pipes , for watercooling but because of the time, I made it into one function only instead of 2. sad

Good morning .. That my friend is just awesome - you REALLY ended up with a major build. I like the "raw" look of it all the way, because you managed to come with a raw look, that does not look sloppy (or insert a more correct word for this )

i have to say, i'm really impressed with the creativity you've shown with this build. using the pipes for a psu cover is definitely a unique look. i look forward to seeing what you do in the future.

and yeah, a canopener? i'm never complaining about my tools again.
